I returned today from 8 days of shooting in Alaska. It was the most productive spurt of shooting I think I have ever done. I met and photographed many lovely folks on this particular trip. Alaskans struck us (Seth & myself) as extremely easy going and friendly. Most all of the people I encountered with my camera were happy to collaborate with me in making photographs. A few noteworthy locations were at a state fair, an oyster farm, a village of Russian Old Believers, and a tribal picnic. At the oyster farm we were fortunate enough to eat a lunch of the freshest most delicious milky oysters right from the ocean - a sensation and experience I will never forget. I am looking forward to seeing the work realized in the USA Networks "Character in America" Project as well as someday publishing my two volume set on Alaska and Hawaii.
