Ride shotgun with long haul trucker and photographer Ryan Shorosky (1 Viewer)


Aug 22, 2020
Ryan and I spoke while he was driving from Salt Lake City to Los Angeles. We discussed life on the road, balancing your vocation with your artistic vision and what's it's been like to work during the pandemic.

I hope this conversation satisfies some of the wanderlust we're all feeling but can't always act on during the pandemic.

Ryan's photography has appeared in TIME, The New York Times, The New Yorker, L'Officiel USA, Vogue, and more.

Total amount

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $0.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $0.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully this will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $0.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $0.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
