A Few Publications This Week

 In Monday's New York Times. 
On the New York Times online today. 
Preston Pollard in this months issue of Alaska Magazine.

This week, I covered Proposition One and Dan Sullivan for The New York Times. The image for the Proposition One story ran in Monday's paper (see here) and last night's assignment following the new republican senate candidate, Dan Sullivan, was featured on the NYTimes website (here). I love covering politics in my home state of Alaska, and I can't wait for November. In other fun news, the newest issue of Alaska Magazine just came out, featuring one of my portraits of Preston Pollard! Go check it out!

Last week, I spent a few days in Barrow, AK. Above are a few film photos I took in-between shoots. I loved seeing the Barrow Whalers have their first practice!

Ash, Elliott and I just returned from five days in Fairbanks. I love packing up my film cameras and hitting the road. Ash was on assignment, photographing WEIO. While Elliott and I played in every park and threw rocks in the river.

Brothers - Will & Sam

In 1998, when I was 13 years old, my family had just moved to Anchorage from Girdwood. It was a big move for me, going from Girdwood's middle school, where my class was around 30 students, to a middle school in Anchorage, ranging in the hundreds. But, I had quickly found friends in my new neighborhood. What we all had in common was skateboarding. Will, Sam and a great crew of others and I would skate in our neighborhood every day after school. I ended up going to a different high school than my new friends, but that didn't stop us from meeting up and skating and filming all through high school. I have countless digital 8 and mini dv tapes of all our skating through the years.

Will and Sam are still skating and filming hard. I can safely say they are among the best skaters in Alaska, hands down. You can see some of there clips here and here. Also, Will is one of the proud new owners of the AK Boardroom, Alaska premiere skate and snow shop in downtown, Anchorage. I can't imagine anyone else better for the job. He is doing an amazing job progressing Alaska's skate scene. Super proud of him.

Amy Meissner

One of my favorite things to do is photograph artists, especially artists I admire and it's even cooler to me if they live in Alaska. Amy Meissner is a wonderful artist in Alaska. I regularly photography Amy's art work, but we have only had one portrait session. The photo above was taken while I was leaving Amy's home after photographing some of her new work. While I was packing up my bags, I saw the window light coming through her beautiful, big living room windows and I had to ask her for a quick portrait. To see more of Amy's work and follow her online, go here!
