Summer is happening. Today Ash, Elliott, Ellis and myself returned from a shoot in Delta Junction, AK. It is about a 7 hour drive north of Anchorage. Tomorrow morning I am heading to Sitka, AK, so right now in-between packing and doing laundry I am writing this. I can't wait to share images from up north, so stay tuned!
Ash, Elliott, Ellis and myself just got back from a few weeks in Oregon, where Ash was working on a project. Over the few weeks I went back to Alaska a couple of times for some assignments I couldn’t pass up. Thanks to Kellers I already have all my flm back, so I will be posting them as I edit! FILM!
I am very pleased to have my Disappearing Villages body of work featured on the wonderful photography site, LENSCRATCH. One of my all-time favorite Alaskan photog's Ben Huff, is guest curating for the sites focus on Alaska for it's States Project.
Wednesday night, Ash and Ellis left to attend The Image Deconstructed Workshop in North Carolina. Over the weekend, Elliott and I kept ourselves busy by driving to Girdwood, hanging at the skate park, playing at many play grounds, going to the slush cup and other adventures. Spending this much one on one time with this amazing, growing child was awesome, and knowing my badass of a wife was in NC at a great workshop (with our five-month-old!) made it even better. Ash and Ellis return home tomorrow, Elliott and I can't wait to see them, we have stories to tell and I am sure they have some great ones too. As for assignments, this week is looking like it is going to be a good one, so stay tuned for more!
Last week, Ash Adams and I started the first week of photographing for Chef Rob Kinneen's upcoming book ( #freshakcookbook ). We will be shooting all through out the summer and into the fall, so stay tuned for more!
