This is some exciting news I have been really eager to share – I have been featured in the February 2011 issue of the  foremost magazine for outdoor photographers – Outdoor  Photographer!  I started subscribing to the magazine about 15 years ago when I decided to get back into photography and started shopping for a new auto-focus camera.  So to now be featured is really coming full circle!  It is a wonderful honor that I am very proud of.

The article isn’t just about me, but my recommendations on a visit to Alaska, and even a bit on the above / below water photos I have shared here on the photo blog.  If you don’t subscribe, you can read a version of the article here.  But better yet purchase a copy at a local book store!  Judging from the really nice congratulation comments I have been receiving via email, Facebook and Twitter, I would say it has been available in the Lower 48 for a week or two.  I haven’t received my copy yet in Alaska, nor have I been able to find it in any stores, but it should be arriving soon.

All of the credit for this article goes to Jeff Wignall.  He approached me with the idea and then did all the work, I am really grateful to Jeff for doing such a great job.  If you are not familiar with Jeff Wignall, he has to be the most prolific and successful photography writer of all time.  He has a huge number of book titles, and I believe at least one of his Kodak books on photography sold well over a million copies.  In addition to books, he has his own radio show, is a monthly contributor to Popular Photography and regularly featured in other magazines and blogs.  To learn more about Jeff, take a look at his website:  Jeff Wignall, also check out Jeff Wignall’s blog.  Thanks Jeff!

  4. I got my copy in the mail a few days ago. Great photos! Jeff also did a great job of telling your story. It was great timing too – I’m still trying to nail down my basic itenerary for the summer trip. With this along with your previous suggestions I’m getting there. Keep up the inspiring work. I bought myself some of your recommend christmas presents for photographers – I’m about halfway through Galen Rowell’s, “Inner Game of Outdoor Photography” – never realized how deep the theory of color can get. Great recommendation – thanks.

  5. Congratulations Ron! You know a photographer is doing something right when they get a feature article in OP. Maybe I’ll have to pick a copy up and check it out.

  6. You have more people reading your blog than I have reading my books, Ron! And don’t give me all the credit, all I did sit here in a cozy office and ask you questions–you did all the beautiful and inspiring work. The state of Alaska should name you their photographic ambassador. OK, next we’ll start working on your coffee-table book 🙂 jeff

    P.S. Thanks for buying the book Kathleen! And Hi Mom! (How cool is it that your famous artist mom reads your blog!)

  7. I saw this in my issue before you announced it Ron, and was so proud to say – “Hey – I know that guy…” 🙂 I thought it was a very well done article, so congrats to you and Jeff.

  8. Very cool Ron, amazing photos as well.- It’s funny, my wife got me a subscription to OP this Xmas after a five year hiatus. Thanks for the preview of my first edition! (Which will hopefully be here soon!)

  9. Congratulations, it is a great article and beautiful images, it was a pleasure to read it! And you cannot buy the issue around where I live nor to get it from the publisher anymore- they are sold out! I was inquiring, because my subscription copy was late.

    Thanks so much everyone!!

    @ George I almost suggested this article for your planning – I think it would make for a great trip!

    @ Stefania It has been hard to find over here, but seems to be out now.

    @ Jeff Thanks again!

    @ Iza My copy finally arrived on Saturday – that is interesting to hear they are sold out. I have relatives that have had trouble finding it in So. California – don’t know why it has gotten hard to find.

    Thanks again!

  11. Congratulations Ron. From what I hear from Richard Wong, whose perspectives I respect, you are also an excellent teacher and leader of photography workshops too. You deserve the recognition.
