Katmai is the gift that keeps on giving! The abundant salmon means an abundance of bears. When photographing through the churning waters, it’s tough to tell just how brilliantly scarlet the fish are. I was also able to take to the skies and photograph thousands of walruses on the pristine shores of Bristol Bay. Then, it was back to the bears – I just can’t get enough of them.
I will be posting two Katmai trips as well as a Glacier Bay small boat cruise for 2017 to our events page soon. To hear about these trips first, get on our mailing list!
The Summer Olympics open this evening in Rio, and as a world traveler fortunate enough to have been to so many incredible places all over the globe, it’s always incredible to see nations set aside differences and come together to compete.
As the week comes to a close and the Games begin, I’m grateful to bring you some wonderful images captured on our recent workshop in Katmai National Park, Alaska. 2016 has been an incredible year for shooting, with locations I’ve visited in the past providing me with unprecedented opportunities to capture them. The denizens Katmai must have felt the competitive vibe in the air, as the wildlife in the area was at it’s best.
The bears in the park were active, expressive, and down-right ready for the spotlight as our group captured them going about their business – their every day tasks mundane to them, but a spectacle to us. Enjoy the photos as we celebrate the opening of the Olympic Games and 100 years of the National Parks Service!

Congratulations to Brian Rivera Uncapher, winner of the 2nd Photography As Art photo contest! This time the theme was Pattern, and Brian’s detail shot of the intricate, varied patterns of the skin of an iguana was the consensus favorite in our office!
Congratulations Brian! Thank you again to everyone who submitted entries to the contest. Although only one winner is chosen, the decisions have not been easy thus far and rest assured we consider each image.
Though I enjoy workshops and opportunities to shoot all around the world, these seminars represent a culmination of my life’s work as an artist and teacher. They are very personal to me, and I am excited to share with you what it means to me to approach photography with the eye of an artist. Over the course of this day together, we will explore the elements of design, the formulation of a concept, and look at the work of artists whom have influenced me throughout my life.
I look forward to seeing you in the following cities in 2017:
