The Dance Party

I have to give a big thanks to Holly and Rob for asking me to shoot their wedding. What a great opportunity to push my photographic skills in a new direction. I admit the wedding party was a tad bit challenging... maybe an understatement... but I appreciate their endurance while I frantically moved people around, fooled around with my meter, and tromped them all over the tundra of Arctic Valley. I'm pretty pleased with the results, considering this was my first attempt from start to finish to document an entire wedding. What a fun group of people... all 350 of them. You sure know how to throw an Alaskan Party!

50 years of Jumping Smoke in Alaska

On June 5th 2009 the Alaska Smokejumpers celebrated their 50th Anniversary with a few practice jumps for the public to watch.

I have to admit this job sure looks like a lot of fun. I think paragliding might be in my future...
