Last month, Smithsonian Journeys released its fall 2016 issue. I am very honored to be included in this issue that is completely dedicated to Alaska. I am also honored to be sharing the pages with great photographers that are so dedicated to telling Alaskas stories. Ash Adams, Katie Orlinsky, Wayde Carroll, and Nathaniel Wilder to name a few. It's on news stands until October! Go check it out!

A few days ago, Ash, Elliott, Ellis and I returned from a trip to France for Visa pour l'Image 2016. We started the trip off in Paris and then drove down to Perpignan in Southern France. Everything was beautiful, everything was tasty and Ellis and Elliott loved it. Visa pour l'Image was inspiring and it was amazing to see so many people come together for photography and story. I simply can't wait to go back.

I love this old blog and I am sorry I haven't been keeping it updated. Above are a few photos from the last couple months of shooting in Alaska and elsewhere. I will try and be better about sharing more here again. That said, I am sharing a photo every day over at I AM INUIT. Check it.

For the last couple years I have been traveling a lot. Every once in a while I have to make sure to keep my camera next to me when I am home in Anchorage. Today, I am glad I kept my camera next to me and made a couple images I like.

I am extremely happy to announce that one week ago today, I AM INUIT was launched. I haven't talked much about I AM INUIT on this blog, but it is a project I started shooting for in mid 2015, with The Inuit Circumpolar Council I AM INUIT is project that seeks to connect the world with Alaskan Inuit (Inupiat, Yup'ik, Cup'ik and St. Lawrence Island Yupik) and the Arctic, through common humanity. It is a project that I am honored to be a part of, and I hope you will all follow. Over the next year I will be visiting somewhere around 20 villages {and possibly more} in Alaska, and as of right now, I have visited Nome, Bethel, Quinhagak, Teller, Kotzebue and Shungnak for the project. I will be posting one photo and quote everyday on the following social media and dedicated website:
