Just a couple of weeks ago I came back from my first trip to Alaska. A trip of this nature requires planning well in advance to be as prepared as possible for all scenarios. Cloths layering, hat, water repellent outer layers, waterproof high ankle hiking boots with several pair of insulated socks.As I was expecting incredible landscape and wildlife ops I decided to invest in a professional camerabag to maximize my overhead carry-on as well as well insulated. NEVER 'check' your equipment bag... continue reading

It was a cold morning; colder than I’ve ever experienced before. I was standing, waiting in line with a few members of my family (my parents and my brother-in-law) all of us ready, dressed for cold and with special footwear that goes over our boots to help us walk better up where we where headed. Today would be a day for new experiences, new adventures and new memories.The helicopter lands and we go in; the pilot runs his pre-flight check while telling us the safety instructions and... continue reading
In the last article I wrote about downtown Seattle and some of its attractions. From there we boarded the cruise to our first stop, Ketchikan. Ketchikan is a small city named after the Ketchikan Creek, which flows through the town, emptying into the Tongass Narrows a short distance southeast of its downtown. Walking the streets of Ketchikan, there’s a small town vibe all around; small stores sell their goods to the visiting tourists bustling about. Creek StreetA small walk away... continue reading

Being born and raised in Northern Alaska the first question anyone asks me whenever they find out where I live is, "Do you see the aurora?!!".The answer is yes, and even after all these years I still am awestruck by it.Those nights where they're especially spectacular I try and remind myself of the frequent tourists I meet who have saved for years to come here, only hoping to catch a glimpse of what I can walk on my front door and see a solid 8 months of the year.They're efforts are sometimes... continue reading
I have been away for the past month for a trip to The Last Frontier – Alaska, and the Rockies. This was the furthest that I have travelled and it was a very fulfilling trip. I strongly recommend Alaska for anyone interested in the “real” wilderness as well as wildlife. Visit the Rockies too for turquoise lakes and majestic vistas, not to say wildlife as well.Both destinations yielded many wonderful photo opportunities and I was lucky enough to capture some of them on digital. Some of the... continue reading
we are under a volcano watch this week in Alaska, thought i'd share some of the info that comes in emails as it is great information that is easily overlookedPlan for a Volcanic eruption:Develop a Family Disaster Plan and include specific preparedness procedures for volcanoes.While volcanoes are located in other areas, ash may be carried some distance away during an explosive eruption. Heavy ashfall may reduce sunlight, causing a sudden demand on electrical power and possible brownouts.... continue reading
