The Tour of the James will be the first comprehensive photo documentary of an entire river, all 340 miles of it. A raft was launched yesterday by Richmond based Outside Venture LLC at the headwaters of the James.
Justin Doyle is JRA’s Outreach Manager. He explained that the cameras are ten feet above the water’s surface and will capture high resolution panoramic photos every 30 seconds. The Tour of the James was initiated by Envision the James, a collaboration involving JRA, National Geographic, and the Chesapeake Conservancy.
