Where we live in Southcentral Alaska, everyone’s freezer is perpetually chock full of wild Pacific salmon (rough, I know). It can’t be helped. Even if you’re not out there harvesting Copper River Reds, a dozen of your friends will be. Sockeye fillets get passed around like Secret Santa gifts all summer, stacking up in the […]
This fall we traveled to the Cascade Mountains of central Washington to catch a little Indian Summer. Alaskan’s get a kick out of being able to hike in shorts and t-shirts during this time of year. We’re no exception. The trails around the North Cascades area provided a spectacular venue to photograph a few days […]
Late summer in Southcentral Alaska means … sloppy! August is usually the monsoon season, when storms from Prince William Sound and the Gulf of Alaska continually bring moisture. And this year we got even more than average (yikes!). The other side of the coin is that persistent cloud cover makes for an ideal time to […]
It was a few years ago, on our first trip to Patagonia that we put the remote camera set-up to the test. We were spending a week on the classic trail around the magnificent Torres del Paine, photographing a new line of backpacks, tents, and trekking poles for client Black Diamond. It was just us […]
While out in the field, we’ll often post photographs from the locations, activities or subjects with an iPhone. You probably caught some singles of rock climbing or mountain biking on our Facebook page during a recent stint in the Southwest. And most recently we were able to share images during a magazine assignment in Alaska’s […]
After testing some situations that could benefit from high dynamic range (HDR) photography, we decided that the technique warranted consideration for use on a few of our travel assignments this winter. Simply put, HDR is a digital post process that combines several images to increase the amount of detail in a final produced photograph. The […]
Last fall we traveled up the road to do a shoot for Outdoor Life Magazine. It was a portrait assignment, but our host Fairbanks sportsman Jackson Fox wasn’t our focus. We were there to photograph Ole Meat-in-the-pot; Fox’s family hunting rifle. More specifically a pre-1964 Model 70 Featherweight Winchester in .30-06 Springfield originally bought by […]
Our recent trekking work for Black Diamond is now opening a handful of pages on their site. Last summer in Alaska and this past winter in Patagonia, we photographed their new line of backpacks as well as tents, headlamps, and trekking poles.
In late October we were given short notice for an upcoming portrait assignment for National Geographic Adventure. Our job was to photograph Alaskan uber-couple Marc and Gayle Hoffmeister of Eagle River for their upcoming adventures of the year issue. The Army Lt. Col and his wife organized a climbing expedition to Denali that was composed of wounded veterans from Iraq and Afghanistan.
