Lots of fantastic life since my last post. Weddings galore, including an amazing wedding in Germany, east of Berlin in a Castle. This last winter was also fruitful I found myself filming for Pretty Faces and working with some athletes flying around in helicopters in the Chugach mountains of Alaska. Ill Let the photos speak for themselves Here ya go:
Hand Held for 4.5 seconds!!! :) The Castle of Love was once a Soviet boarding school. And here from a fantastic wedding in east Germany.

Speed Riding is taking off in AK in a big way! From Thompson Pass looking into the Valley of the Tusk. Mike Wilson cat naps. A lucky guy and his lovely Bride
I dream of this light, the fantastic long lingering magic that lasts hours and hours in early spring in AK.
"Wake up to find out that you are the eyes of the world" Although wedding photography is demanding and often just plain chaos in action it is also very rewarding to bring something so important, and give something so special to my clients.
Flying in Helicopters has to be one of the best perks of being a Photographer in Alaska. More of that Alaskan magic light. Oh yes these ladies knew how to have fun and look good for the special day.

Standing on the shoulder of Mt Marcus Baker Shooting still photographs from a Heli, door off, is like firing a machine gun from a moving target at a moving target. So much is moving around you, the centrifical forces are pushing and pulling you around. Harnessed in, but having my feet out the door the wind rushing over my hands and camera creates an effect, you realize there is a speed at which you can't hold let alone aim and fire a camera with much of a desired function at those moments you just hold on and hope your hands do what you beg them too. But its the view you can get from a Heli that is just unsurpassed. This Shot is Carson Klein who is totally rocking it on the World Wing Suit racing circuit. Totally amazing to watch Carson, he is a human eagle in so many ways. Sending a big shout out to him and all the Human Birds as they head to China for the next race.

I love the patterns of snow as seen from above. No you shouldn't attempt to walk or ski here but looking at it, yea thats safe.

Rachel Burks and Lynsey Dyer, Quite a combo to photograph, lets do that again!
Doing the dip, ok ladies take note, one could be a little more relaxed and be sure to show off your shoes.
I send my love and peace to all of my friends family and relations. The patterns of our life are fractal just as in images of nature, we are truly expressions of the universe that birthed us. I am available for photography and film projects, so let me know if you have anything going on.
