Guests in Paradise: A diary for you and your guests is a 144-page guest book/diary. This keepsake combines Nathan Bilow’s stunning imagery of Crested Butte adjacent to pages for people to record memories of their special event or special visits. Each delicately lined page is crowned with a lovely icon, almost all of which were hand drawn by Nathan’s daughter, Naomi Bilow-Makler. The book is in dedicated sections such as seasons, holidays, weddings, culinary, and leisure activities with each section introduced by a breathtaking double page image and beautiful quotes by F. Scott Fitzgerald, John Steinbeck, Aristotle, Oscar Wilde, Pavarotti, and Helen Keller.

Guests in Paradise has a natural feel to its production from the choice of paper to the images that were created to flow through a year of experiences, making it a wonderful gift for your friend or family member who has embraced the spirit of Crested Butte. It is perfect for events like birthday parties, weddings, anniversaries, baby & bridal showers, as well as a guestbook for vacation rentals, Bed & Breakfasts, or at home to record visitors’ feelings and well wishes. One guest book, multiple uses!

In 1982 I created the local based post card company in Crested Butte, Colorado, called
Rocky Mountain Impressions, now known as Mountain Impressions.

After being the major contributor of a hard cover local and tourist book in Denver, I decided to give back to my community of Crested Butte and published the first ever hard cover book, The Edge of Paradise, in 1989, the request of a soft cover book came just a few years after calling it The Seasons of Paradise in 1993. Crested Butte became filled with photographers and I was the contributor of the third book Where the Road Ends.

Most of my published work came from newspapers, magazines (over 23 Crested Butte Magazine covers) throughout the the world, mainly in Europe and the United States with travel (filling three passports), adventure racing and travel, corporate, annual reports, news for the Associated Press and USA Today, The New York Times, sports for AllSport/Getty Images. Lately for USA Today Sports a combination of ten winter and summer Olympics, America’s Cup Sailing, the Whitbread, Fly Fisherman, Hallmark Cards, USSA and the list goes on, mostly without photo credits.

Creating the human body as art was something that came about as a phase that all artists go through, something like the Blue era of Van Gogh, the Impressionists of Claude Monet, testing and exploring our own limits. I called it Naturally (2009). They were nudes in nature with beauty of nature and the human shapes involved as one. 

Enjoying telling stories through photography is my goal, but knowing that one photograph will tell the entire story.
Motto: Think globally, act locally
