I was certainly happy to get the call to head to Southeast Alaska this past spring. This remote temperate rainforest is a place of adventure, wonder and some of the best wild steelhead fishing around. The weather, the climate, the tides, the terrain and just trying to get there also makes it one of the most vigorous angling exploits imaginable, the temperate rainforest is not for the faint of heart. However, besides the constant uphill battle, this is also one of the most thrilling adventures a fly angler can have! It was a fun week of crab, prawns, and steelhead. I can’t wait to return.

I’ve been fortunate to meet and photograph people from all different walks of life. Portraiture is not my strong suit but I enjoy attempting to capture people in their free unaltered moments.

Chrome Chasers Lodge in Wrangell, Alaska is has recently purchased a new building and remolding has already begun. Along with new countertops, flooring, paint and tile, the walls will have new prints for the upcoming 2015 season.

I’m pleased to have images hanging in the new place; they will compliment the new renovations nicely.

AURORA BOREALIS | WRANGELL, ALASKA Northerns Lights, AK
As random luck would have it, I was able to snag a scramble image of the northern lights here in Alaska. I feel very fortunate to be able to see them and very lucky to be able to fire off a few images before it disappeared.

Things can get really busy when shooting in the field, and sometimes you get tunnel vision and miss the amazing little things that nature offers. Image was taken in Wrangell, Alaska in the Tongass National Forest.
