Icy Bay IPA Winter Surf Video

By |July 18th, 2017|

Following up on Scott’s work on long-time client Alaskan Brewing’s Icy Bay IPA label, the beer company of the last frontier asked him to produce six videos telling the story of Alaskan Brewing and the lifestyles of those who drink their beer. The videos are used for advertising, such as on Hulu. Over the course of the next few weeks, we’ll be sharing these videos and their stories here on the blog. […]

Glacier Surfing in Alaska

By |July 13th, 2017|

How to glacier surf: first, stand on the beach in a wetsuit with a surfboard and wait. Watch the tidewater glacier until the relatively warm ocean water against the glacier causes chunks of ice to break away and fall into the ocean — a phenomenon known as calving.

It’s hard to predict when the glacier will calve or how much ice will fall. In addition to these factors, the surf-ability of the waves depends on the tides, the distance and angle of the nearby beach, and the wind. Not to mention chunks the size of Volkswagens might be joining you in the lineup

Though the surf-able waves might be 2-8hrs apart you won’t be bored waiting by a glacier – the view alone is a magical experience.

Kenai Fjords National Park Wildlife Tour

By |July 11th, 2017|

Scott spent a couple days on a boat in Kenai Fjords National Park photographing landscapes and wildlife, of which the park has an abundance. After sorting through the resulting several thousand images, a dozen stood out as his favorites. Take a tour with us and learn about some of the glaciers, marine mammals and birds that define the park.

The Seward Harbor is the most common access point for the fjords as there are no roads or airports in the park.

 

The park is dominated by glaciers, massive rivers of ice that flow out of Harding Ice Field. The glaciers form with abundant snowfall, cool summers and gravitational flow of ice, all of which are present at the Fjords. Though at one time the park was entirely covered in ice, […]

Anchorage Lifestyle Photo Shoot, Part Deux: Biking

By |July 6th, 2017|

Following the sunrise run, Scott’s intrepid models hopped on their bikes and went for another loop around the Westchester Lagoon in Anchorage. As it turns out, to portray an active lifestyle, one actually has to be quite active.

However, these women were up for the task as Scott explored angles to create photographs that would capture both the activity and the striking scenery around them. With the sun a bit higher in the sky, Scott used the natural light to create a back glow on the bike riders as they stopped for a break, creating more interest to the eye in the shots.

With the mountains in the background, Anchorage is one of few places that a city life scene ends up looking naturally epic.

 

Anchorage Lifestyle Photo Shoot: Sunrise Run

By |July 3rd, 2017|

Scott set out to portray an active Anchorage lifestyle one early April morning. Since the goal was to catch the sunrise as the three models ran along Westchester Lagoon, they were earlier than most early birds even like to be.
