Aleutian Summer

Aleutian Range - Alaska Peninsula - Alaska

After an expedition photographing the giant coastal brown bears of the Alaska peninsula, and more than a few days delayed at camp because of fog, we got the call that a weather window was opening up and our bush plane would soon be coming to get us. There are no roads in this rugged and vast wilderness and you're very much at the mercy of mother nature and her weather patterns. I would've been perfectly happy being fogged in for many more days, but when the clouds began to break up we radioed our bush pilot and got ready to be picked up and taken out before the next round of weather rolled in. We lifted off from the beach in the tiny plane and flew over the meadows and tidal flats that I had spent the last days in with the bears. I spotted 2 bears below us and watched them until the plane banked towards the mountains.  Our pilot flew us over the massive peaks of the Aleutian Range. Looking down at the gigantic volcanic peaks and the glaciers that slowly slithered to the ocean, you could really start to get a good idea of just how cut off this place is from civilization. You knew it from the ground but you could really feel it from high above in a small bush plane.  Luckily, the bears and other animals that call this place home have been able to live their lives untouched by human development and encroachment. One of the main reasons I love being out in nature is the sense it gives me of feeling small and insignificant. Nature can be incredibly humbling. It's a feeling I think we as humans don't feel enough, and leaves us detached from the natural world and our links to the things that connect us and all other things.

Metal Print - Ready to Hang

Metal Print - Ready to Hang

With metal prints the brilliant surface offers a richness of color that makes viewers take notice.  But they also solve the "problem" of framing. Traditional mounting, matting, and framing can be a time consuming and expensive process. Not so with Metal Prints, the metal surface is naturally smooth and rigid, and with a hanger attached to the back, they are ready to hang right out of the box. This is a great choice for a ready to hang contemporary piece of wall art at a more econonimal price.

Canvas Gallery Wrap - Ready to Hang

Canvas Gallery Wrap - Ready to Hang

Canvas Gallery Wraps offer a superb way to display your photographs. What makes canvas wraps so popular is that they eliminate the need (and cost) of framing. Your Canvas Wrap is ready to hang on your wall, right out of the box. Once you see your Canvas Wrap, you'll understand why these are one of the most popular trends in decor and display. Canvas wraps are also a great option if you have a room that received a lot of glare. The canvas won't reflect the light like a traditional glass or acrylic frame will.
