Filming for Patagonia Wetsuits

The clothing and outdoors brand/religion known as patagonia just released their 2014 wetsuit guide video. Patagonia surf ambassadors Chris and Keith Malloy’s recent trip to Alaska is featured with footage by Scott Dickerson. Check it out.

This project was special for us on several levels. For one thing it was an opportunity for Scott to showcase that his talents aren’t only in still photography. It also gave us another chance to show new friends how we have fun in Alaska –  on a great surf trip with Ocean Swell Ventures on the M/V Milo. The timing just worked out such that our friend Daniel Zatz of Zatzworks was in the area shooting cineflex aerials and was kind enough to get a few shots for this project […]

  • Aerial view of stand up paddlesurfing the Turnagain Arm boretide in Cook Inlet, Alaska. Eric Newberry, Dave Calkins, and Mike McCune rode the wave caused by the incoming tide for up to five miles on their standup paddleboards.

Red Bull Illume Image Quest 2013

Just wanted to post a quick note to share our excitement and pride at one of Scott’s images being chosen as one of the top 50 images in Red Bull’s Illume Image Quest 2013. This contest hasn’t happened since 2010 and the caliber of photographers and athletes featured is staggering.

This photo was the result of Scott’s passion for surfing, aerial perspectives and pioneering surf in Alaska coming together on a magically beautiful morning to be photographing from his paramotor. […]

#tbt: Outside Television ‘Surfs’ Alaska

Inspired by Instagram’s Throwback Thursday trend, here is one from the SDP archives. The other day I started flipping through a stack of old magazines from a friend and opened right up to this quintessential Homer surf scene. It made for a fun surprise! Here Mike McCune surfs Alaska for Outside Television in a photo licensed by Aurora Photos, one of our stock agents. From Outside Magazine, February 2012.

das ist cool! Alaska im Winter: Adventure and Surf

We’ve had what seems like a lot of German attention lately, and we’ve thoroughly enjoyed and appreciated it!

Early this winter we were visited by filmmaker Sabrina Hermsen and her crew from ZDF (the German equivalent of PBS, we understand). We had a lot of fun showing them around and managed to get some surf when by all standards there really wasn’t any.

This German TV episode features us and Surf Alaska.  Our appearance begins at 5:47.

In this longer episode Mike McCune of Ocean Swell Ventures and the M/V Milo are featured as well, although the surf is noticeably missing. We’re only sorry they didn’t include the post session feast, standard fare on the Milo, that we shared with them. Check it out, starting at 6:49.

Oh yeah, we […]

Welcome to the year of Growth

If you look at the author credit on this post you’ll see that it’s written by Stephanie Dickerson. This is a great beginning to a year of growth. My wife of nearly three years is taking a more formal position in Scott Dickerson Photography and I couldn’t be happier. She’s had a few roles in the business before now ranging from model to consultant but I am, we are, very excited about taking it to the next level. One thing you’ll notice right away is a bit more life here on the blog. So without further ado, take it away Stephanie!


Today is a warm day with a sense of spring and it seems appropriate we are about to have another opportunity to start the year […]
