First hours in Denali N.P. , in the background we can observe the highest mountain in North-américa, ancient named Mount Mckinley but his name changed in 2015 to Denali. Deenaalee "the high one" is based on the Koyukon lenguages. The Koyukon are a people of Alaskan Athabaskans settled in the area north of the mountain. While our photo trip in the first week of September 2015, President Barack Obama announced the renaming of the mountain, pure chance, of course. #denali #mckinley #alaska #denalinationalpark #nature #naturephotography #natgeoespana #natgeolanscape #natgeo #koyuconpeople #allnatureshots #landscape #wildnature #wıldnature_shot #natgeoalaska
Here’s another of my favorite places in Alaska. I take many of my private, custom photo tours and my scheduled photo tours to this fly-in only spot. July is a great time of year to come here as things are greened up and many of the flowers are in bloom. This image was taken with a Canon 5D Mark IV with a 24-105mm lens at 35mm f/14 1/250th second ISO 400.

Moose are quite abundant here in Alaska. This was one of those Serendipitous —F8-and Be There — kind of moments. My private client and I were driving heading to a late-night landscape area. We came over a rise and there, in the shade on the left side of the road was a cow moose. I slowed down as a precaution and sure enough the cow turned to cross in front of us. And out from the brush behind her pops her young calf. They crossed the road in front of us and into this nice late sunshine. I eased my truck to the side of the road and put on my flashers, rolled down the passenger side window. My client, having his cameras at the ready on the front seat, was able to shoot this right from his seat. I leaned over and shot a couple frames over his shoulder. They stayed in this light for 5 or more minutes—every once in a while posing alert with their heads up as traffic would come by. This was made using my my Canon 5D Mark IV with a 24-105mm f4 L II lens. Shot at 105mm f/5.6 at 1/200th second ISO 500 handheld.

This was part of a 7-day private photo tour I was guiding in June and there were several of us photographing this sow and 2nd-year cubs sauntering and grazing when our bear-guide whispered that there were two other bears moving into the area. Knowing that, we knew there would be some sort of reaction from this trio. We readied for the reaction. This is one of a series of the trio being alert. As I tell my models “Strike the Pose”— and the bears certainly did so here. This was shot on my Canon 1DX Mark II with a 100-400mm f4-5.6 L II lens. Shot at 330mm f/7.1 at 1/1000th second ISO 400 handheld and cropped in from the original.

dreaming of warmer days ☀️
3 weeks left in Europe...✌🏻then it's off to new adventures. 📷: Taken in Downtown Anchorage 2014
It was a rainy day as we toured along the Katmai Coast in a boat. This sea otter allowed us to get quite close as he munched lunch. This was shot on my Canon 1DX Mark II with a 100-400mm f4-5.6 L II lens. Shot at 400mm f/5.6 at 1/1000th second ISO 800 handheld. This lens is SO much better than the previous model. It’s actually quite sharp.

Here’s an image from Prince William Sound during another private photo tour. The landscape there changes daily and with the tides. This is one of my favorite places in Alaska. There’s no place like Prince William Sound— on a good day. When it’s rainy and windy, it’s still beautiful but can be quite harsh. This image was taken with a Canon 5D Mark IV with a 24-105mm lens at 50mm f/10 1/1000th second (we were on a moving boat) ISO 200.

Lumi liked this little watering hole area.
Glacier View
Seals!
Just tying up to an iceberg. No biggie @hazelnut_574
This harbor seal cow and pup were on a rock along the Katmai Coast as we cruised by on a six-pac boat. The pup appeared to be VERY young. Was a nice site to see. This was shot on my Canon 1DX Mark II with a 100-400mm f4-5.6 L II lens. Shot at 400mm f/5.6 at 1/2000th second ISO 800 handheld.

Hanging out at beautiful glaciers with awesome people makes me happy. Prince William Sound is pretty special
Fluff balls at sunset. #sunset #goldenhour
I tried a little “artsy” stuff on this bear when I saw him swooping the grass into a bite-size clump with his paw. Was a great experience in Lake Clark National Park getting this close to a 4-ish year old bear. This was shot on my Canon 1DX Mark II with a 100-400mm f4-5.6 L II lens. Shot at 320mm f/9 at 1/320th second ISO 320 handheld.

This seems to be the summer of the Wild Roses. Seems everywhere I go they are there in spades! Looks really nice. This image was made while guiding one gentleman on a 7-day private photo tour in the “Glacier View” area of the Glenn Highway with the Chugach Mountains. This was made using my my Canon 5D Mark IV with a 24-105mm f4 L II lens. Shot at 30mm f/22 at 1/6th second ISO 100 on a tripod using a 3-stop hard-edge graduated neutral density filter from breakthrough photography. I’m liking these new glass filters from them.

her soul was too deep to explore by those who only swam in the shallow end
Boudoir shoots are my favorites because every body is exceptionally beautiful. It’s a huge confidence booster and a fun way to show off your gorgeous body! Jordyn was no exception - she’s stunning and so natural in front of the camera. If you’re interested in this type of shoot, message me! ☺️
I can see my house. #iflyalaska #mendenhallglacier
This view is cliche but also amazing... #fireweed
You guys...the high today was 97...NINETY SEVEN DEGREES🔥If you know anything about German summers this is not normal at all. No one has air conditioning (we luckily have a portable). No one has screens on their windows so you're battling flies everywhere. It's a hot mess (literally). Anyways, I remember my last summer in Alaska @missapril19 and I decided to hike Bird Ridge. The hike consists of a 3500 foot elevation gain in about 2 miles. It was HOT that day, a high of 75😂we ran out of water, we were covered in dirt, we seriously thought we were going to die. We replenished our bodies with sweet tea and fried pickles. I laugh about it now because I'd take 75 degrees any day!
At least there is a nice view from this training... #aukelake #UAS #universityofalaskasoutheast
It was a beautiful evening along the coast in Lake Clark National Park when we photographed these three coastal grizzly bears grazing on the fresh grass. This was shot on my Canon 5D Mark IV with a 24-105mm f4 L II lens. Shot at 91mm f/8 at 1/250th second ISO 500 with a Breakthrough photography polarizer, handheld. I’m really liking many of these fine glass filters from Breakthrough Photography out of San Francisco.

Plentiful wildlife sightings this weekend, but I think it’s time to replace the 55-210 with a 100-400mm. #AlaskaBig5 @rrumschlag @allison__martine
I hear this was the first day of sunshine after 6 days of torrential downpour along the coast in Lake Clark National Park. This little 2nd-year grizzly puff-ball looks like it had taken out the shampoo and used a blow dryer afterward. This was shot on my Canon 1DX Mark II with a 100-400mm f4-5.6 L II lens. Shot at 400mm f/5.6 at 1/2000th second ISO 400 handheld.

Salmon for the smoker, and jerky!
Watching orcas 😊 @drift.her
Umingmak - Bearded One.
I did a 7-day private photo tour with one gentleman starting in late June. This was one of the landscape photos we did during our private boat tour in Prince William Sound by landing on shore and making our way around the shoreline. Pretty spectacular place. This was shot on my Canon 5D Mark IV with a 24-105mm f4 L II lens. Shot at 40mm f/16 at 1/160th second ISO 100 on a tripod.

Playing with a pod of curious orcas in the setting midnight sun made for a very magical drive @drift.her
