Commissions in Alaska and Norway

June 8th, 2012

Thompson Pass, near Valdez, Alaska

Thompson Pass, near Valdez, Alaska

I have recently returned from two trips shooting editorial commissions. The first was in Alaska where I spent the best part of a month in and around the Chugach Mountains in what turned out to be a record-breaking snowfall year.  The second trip was to the Lyngen Alps in northern Norway, around 200 miles inside the Arctic Circle. Based on a yacht exploring the fjords northwest of Tromso, the ‘land of the midnight sun’ kept its promise, delivering nearly 24 hours of daylight. Click here or on the image above to see some more images from both trips - the link will open my facebook page.
