Another new cover in the mail when I got home – this Bell Mapbook!  Also always a treat to be on a Bell’s cover, as it is a family own business – I remember them coming through Glennallen when I was a kid!  We have proudly worked with them for many, may years.

I photographed this cute little cub during one of my June Alaska Bear Photo Tours.  I mention that, as unfortunately one of my regular clients is going to have to cancel his June spot.  This trip usually fills very quickly a year in advance, so this is a bit of a rare opportunity to join me during the best time of year for Brown Bears and cubs!  The dates on June 26th to July 1.  Please call or email if you have any questions or interest in this trip.

Now that I’m back home, I might subject you to just a little bit of shameless self promotion.  But, some of these are just too cool not to share, including the cover of this years Greatland Graphics 2017 Alaska Time calendar!  I’m always proud to be on the cover of any Greatland Graphics product, as they have been producing high quality work featuring Alaska photographers for many years now!  I photographed these two cubs during last June’s Alaska Bear Photo Tour.

This just arrived in the mail this afternoon!  The photo was from last June’s bear tour to Lake Clark National Park.  This calender is published by Greatland Graphics – they do a wonderful series of Alaska calenders.  They have been a valued customer for many many years, and I’m proud to be a part of many of their beautiful products!

Spotted this cover at a convention last weekend – we weren’t aware of it since the sale was made by an agent –  so it was a nice surprise!

This is in Bear Lagoon, Kenai Fjords National Park. We spent the night there last summer, but this image was actually from a trip a couple of years earlier. Thanks

I have subscribed to Outdoor Photographer many, many years – since my days as a beginning amateur.  Back then I would devour every issue as I was so hungry to read and learn anything and everything about outdoor photography.  I still subscribe today, now mainly to keep up with trends and friends – I am friends in one way or another with the authors of every major article in one recent issue.

So given this history, I must say I was very excited when they contacted us before my recent Antarctica trip looking for a high-res comp of an image for cover consideration.  That would be cool!  Days before leaving, they told us they would definitely use the image, if not for the cover as a Showcase image.  I had my fingers crossed!

As you can see, it wasn’t selected for the cover, but it is still a nice honor to have been published in the Showcase section – so close!
