Field Mag Welcomes Tanner Bowden as Managing Editor

July 27, 2021

New York, New York (July 27, 2021) — Field Mag, the digital publication of choice for lovers of good design and the great outdoors, welcomes Tanner Bowden as Managing Editor. Most recently the senior staff writer at Gear Patrol, Bowden will have a lead role in sustaining and building upon Field Mag’s ongoing exponential growth.

Bowden brings extensive experience in writing, editing, and photography to the outdoor lifestyle website known best for its photography-led storytelling and aspirational cabin content. In addition to covering outdoors and fitness for Gear Patrol, Bowden has contributed to Freeskier, ESPN’s, and Whalebone Magazine. Prior to pursuing his career in digital media, Bowden was a wilderness instructor and Jackson Hole ski bum. He is a graduate of the National Outdoor Leadership School and the University of Vermont.

“What draws me to Field Mag is the welcoming nature of everything the team publishes,” said Bowden. “Every time I read a photo essay or discover a new prefab cabin, it inspires a new idea, a new yearning to get outside or draw up plans for a homestead of my own. It all feels possible, and reinforces the idea that adventure and adventurous living is and should be attainable and accessible. And that the outdoors are and should be for everyone.”

As Field Mag explores new avenues within its long-running newsletters and core content verticals of photography, gear, and cabins, Bowden will lead the growing editorial team and work hand in hand with Field Mag Founder Graham Hiemstra to launch new initiatives and stay ahead of an ever-changing digital media landscape.

“Tanner joins the team at the most exciting time we’ve seen,” said Hiemstra. “As record readership and engagement continues across all platforms, Tanner’s editorial talents and keen understanding of trends at the intersection of outdoors and contemporary culture will play a key role in ensuring we not only catch this wave of pandemic-fueled interest in outdoors and remote architecture but ride it to the moon.”
