I am very, very honored to have an image selected for the Alaska Art Bank.  The State of Alaska hasn’t added to their art collection since 2001, and only selected 17 pieces of art out of 556 entries from 110 Alaskan artists!  I am so proud to be included among such a small group of artists.

I captured this photo a couple of years ago from a helicopter with the door removed.  I have shot from helicopters many times in Alaska and California – it is a blast!

We don’t offer canvas wraps on our on-line shopping cart, but have had a number of people special order them – they turn our great, and are ready for hanging.

We made it back to Alaska safe and sound, it is great to be home!  I was hoping to post a new Alaska photo, but rain and ugly weather discouraged that so I thought I would do just a little bit of shameless self promotion.

This was in the mail when we came home – I captured this photo back in a trip in 2008 and I thought it looked pretty cool on the cover of the March issue of County Extra!

Bells 2010 Inside Passage Travel Guide

Bell-s 2010 Inside Passage Travel Guide

I’m proud to say our photos are on the covers of all three Bell’s Alaska travel guides again this year!!  Great travel guides produced by a wonderful family, I’m proud to be a part of their guides again this year.   You can find these travel guides throughout Alaska at most visitor centers, restaurants and other businesses.  If you are in Alaska be sure to pick them up, they are full of useful information.

To get a feel for just how small the little grizzly cub is in the top photo, keep in mind those are dandelions.  Sure dandelions grow big up here, but still… !   This little guy was outside of Haines, Alaska.

The Mapbook cover was of a sunrise in the Seward Boat Harbor – it was a post on the blog at the time.

Sticking with a music theme, we just received a bundle of our mail and in it was this CD by Stanton Lanier.  As I sit here in the desert in shorts and sandals, I gotta admit seeing my snowshoe tracks in winter is a little hard to relate to, but a fun reminder of our wonderful home!

For the many new followers to the blog – don’t worry, I won’t post every time we make an image sale – that would be boring.  But, I do like sharing covers because, well, I think they are fun.  So I post them from time to time under the category Shameless Self Promotion.

To Stanton – we weren’t able to get through to you on email for some reason, so just in case you see this – the cover looks great – thanks a lot, and thanks for the autographed copy.  We look forward to listening to it soon!

To learn more about Stanton, check out his website:  Stanton Lanier.

California History  The Journal of the California Historical Society.

I wasn’t sure what I would write about today until I made my daily walk to the Post Office and found this in the box!  It is a thrill and honor to be on the cover of such a wonderful publication.

This photo was captured along the California’s Central Coast near Big Sur a few years ago – I would love to spend some more time along the beautiful stretch of coastline.

I have tried to keep the shameless self promotion to a minimum, but I have always kinda liked this photo of Harriman Glacier in the Chugach National Forest, so I was excited to have it selected for the cover of next years calendar.

I believe these are available at most National Park visitor centers in Alaska.  Here are some more Chugach National Forest photos.

The Hangover

Welcome to Las Vegas sign, Las Vegas, Nevada.

Welcome to Las Vegas sign, Las Vegas, Nevada.

Sorry to disappoint – I don’t have some crazy story about a late night last night!

You see, on June 5th, Warner Bros. is releasing a major motion picture with that name.  Like with most movie releases, the actors perform endless promotional interviews telling everyone just how funny the movie is, and how awesome everyone got along during filming.  But unlike most motion pictures, this time, the actors will be doing their interviews while sitting in front of a collage of Las Vegas photos, including our above photo of the Las Vegas sign!  I think that is pretty cool. 

Hopefully it works out better for them then Viva Laughlin!

In my last post, in response to a question I shared information about our top grossing photos.  I would be remiss if I didn’t mention the above photo.  The boxing bear cub image you see on this travel guide hasn’t been used in an advertising campaign, this kept it off the top grossing list, but in terms of total number of sales, it has to be our most popular image.   Read More
