Summer 2018 we are headed from Anchorage, AK, over “Top of the World Highway”, up the Dempster Highway to Inuvik, NWT, and beyond. The most ambitious plan could add a further Hummer and trailer from The States (aka L48) joining us near Dawson City. We are in the preliminary planning stages… Wish us luck.

I followed him down to #BrownBearBar at #IndianRiver in the #Hummer #H3 to make sure all went well. It did. Extra points: His “Silver Sufer” series […]
Last year I bought a Polaroid 110 -> 4×5 conversion thinking it would be a much simpler way of shooting large format than carrying a large and bulky monorail and supporting tripod. loaned it to my friend Ed Gold (pictured above) who used it for his Galena, Alaska book project. New55FILM are a kickstarter designing new […]
