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!

Chugach Film Festival

It is fun to see my photo promoting this great event, but I’m bummed I can’t attend as I filmed some of the “beauty shots” in one of the films.  I appreciate the invitation, and would definitely be there if I could.

Tomorrow (Saturday) I begin a week and a half of intensive training for my Wilderness First Responder certificate.  It goes from 8 in the morning, to 8 at night with evening reading and homework, so I don’t see myself posting anything to the blog until after it is done.  That is also why I’ll miss the premiere.  See you on the back side!

Greatland Graphics Alaska Wilderness and Wildlife Callender for 2015.

Greatland Graphics Alaska Wilderness and Wildlife Calender for 2015.

We made it home safely yesterday – it is great to be back in Alaska!

Found some nice surprises in the mail beginning with this cover of the 2015 Greatland Graphics Wilderness and Wildlife calender!  I am excited and honored to have the cover of two of their calenders this year, which the publisher tells me is very rare – very cool!  I’ll share the other one later this week.

I have worked with Greatland Graphics for many years now, they provide a wide range of wonderful products, all with top quality images and printing.  They typically only work with fellow Alaskan photographers which I think is great.  You can see more of their products here:  Greatland Graphics.

This is an image from one of my Alaska Bear photo tours at Lake Clark National Park.

This is one of the photos that accompanies Janine’s latest article about the Seward Highway in Country Magazine!  The link is too an excerpt.  It is great to see her receive publication credit!  This photo is actually an old Fuji Velvia slide dating back to the late 90’s – nice to see my early work still getting used.
