Honored to present at the 2016 Alaskan Photo Fest in Anchorage. I spoke on two subjects; (1) posing and lighting, and (2) planning a winter photographic landscape expedition to Iceland.
I owe a debt of gratitude to Jackie Kramer. She was the visionary, creator and organizer of the Photo Fest. I also owe Jackie a special thanks for our side trips to Denali and Brooks Falls. I also owe a debt of gratitude to Arnie & Celeste Cohen for their kindness and hospitality, to my friend Charlene for the photography road trip along the Seward Anchorage Highway, and to the Alaska Society of Outdoor & Nature Photographers (ASONP) for their support.
