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!

Robert Brewster + Club Business International

A few months ago, I had the pleasure of photographing Robert Brewster, president of the Alaska Club for Club Business International. We had two awesome sessions in one week, photographing in two of his favorite Alaska Club locations and one out door location. Above are a few tear sheets from the article and a couple of my favs that didn't make it in the publication. #iloveprint

A couple of days ago, I returned from five days in Yelapa, Mexico. It was an amazing, inspiring and refreshing trip, filled with friends and great memories. Above are a few film photos from the trip. I only shot 14 film images the whole trip. But, I have a lot more to share! So more soon!

Southeast For The Alaska Marine Highway System

 An amazing hike in Ketchikan.
 All aboard the Matanuska! 

 The Canon 5d Mark III and Ash's 24mm, she let me borrow (thanks love) for the trip, so far it has been my set up of choice on this assignment. 
 Engine crew of the Matanuska! 
 Me. By a photo friend I made on the ship. He reminded me of my good friend Loren Holmes. So we stuck together for a bit. 

Above, are a few iPhone pics taken on my Marine Hwy adventure. I have just arrived in Haines and will be spending the next couple days here. The trip has been wonderful so far, the first couple days were rainy and frustrating, but now that it has cleared up, things are moving smoothly and non stop. I mean non stop. Canon fast, not iPhone fast, so there has been little time to get pics for social media purposes, but I will keep you posted with what I get! I also wanted to say thanks to the team at Bradley Reid and all the help and support I have received from everyone at the Marine Hwy. Thanks all! More soon!
