About Images West Magazine

Images West magazine’s staff and roster of freelance writers and photographers love this valley and they want readers to love it too. From Jackson Hole locals, to the places, events, businesses, organizations, and landscapes that make this valley one of the greatest, most beautiful places in the world. (Images West magazine admits to being biased in this regard.) Whatever the subject, Images West magazine’s goal is action: its stories help readers make the most of their time here, or, if they already live here, shine a spotlight on something, or someone, new.

Images West is a publication of Teton Media Works, Inc., a locally owned and operated media company in Jackson, Wyoming. Built upon a foundation of independent, quality journalism, Teton Media Works publishes daily and weekly newspapers, websites, magazine and special interest publications.
