Oh yeah...I have a NEWS section on my website! Geez, how embarrassing ;-) It's been so long since I told visitors here what I was up to. Well, let's get started. I have lots of exciting things to share! I'm not one to detail everything I do, as I generally want my pictures to do the talking, but here's a few details about my life and things to come!
First off, thanks so much for helping me make my unique brand of Photo Adventure tours some of the most popular in the world! Every single trip I listed this year (17 of them, to be precise) filled up in a couple days or less! Thanks for telling me that you consider my trips to be some of the premier photographic learning experiences available today, and I am honored to be your guide. It is, afterall, my passion in life.
I am entering a new phase in my career as a professional photographer now and over the next two years you will see a huge amount of new work from many, many locations I haven't been and few have ever seen. I am doing more ground-breaking trips than ever for me personally and have been training hard all year for several adventures that embody the truest meaning of that word. This summer I will be trekking hundreds of miles across one of the world's most rugged ranges, the Coast Mountains of BC and SE Alaska. I will be helicoptering into a remote location called Chutine Lake and beginning a solo trek that will take me more than a month to the north of there continuously! I will be carrying it all with me and will be writing about this adventure in the months afterwards. I have everything from ice tools to explore the immense glacial terrain to a portable 5-pound raft to ford and float the huge rivers. It will be an epic adventure, I'm sure!
After leading some heli-in Aurora tours in the Northern Yukon this fall I will be moving onto the SW, as always, and then it's back to the desert sands of the UAE, Oman and Saudi Arabia for more collaborative projects with my friend Abdullaziz bin Ali.
Following my January visit to the deserts, Abdullaziz and I have been discussing the possiblity of exploring Patagonia and southern Chile/Argentina together throughout April. More on that to come!
Next summer will bring me back to Alaska's coast for another long trek and then it's on to places I have never seen. I am planning a month-long exploration of Canada's Arctic regions on Baffin Island in September and possibly well into early winter, to explore untapped and unmatched potential for shooting the Aurora, unbelievable peaks, Polar Bears and much more. Like my Alaska trips, I expect this will be at least a month of continuous solo trekking and am greatly looking forward to the challenge.
More and more every day I am finding that it is the adventure of landscape photography that keeps me motivated, and the spirit of seeing and doing something new is what pushes me forward into new realms. I have found is that it's an exciting time to be a photographer and if I can I intend to take advantage of it to the fullest!
