Sweden Trip 2015 (part 6)

So the final leg of our journey ends with a few days spent in Stockholm.  We stayed at the Scandic Grand Central.  Our room was beautiful and had a cool view from the 4th floor…  … of the building across the street.   It was cool being in a big downtown scene though.  We walked everywhere or used their great public transportation. With the Stockholm Card we could use the subway […]

After the great experience with the Aurora Shoot, the weather got progressively worse.  We bummed around the Hotel the next day and tried to take some aurora shots from the lookout point behind the Hotel.  But the cloud cover was too thick.  The Aurora was so bright though you could see it through the clouds.  I could only image how amazing it would have been without the clouds.   The […]

So we Just finished our dogsled tour with Abikso Dogsled.  Lena drove Jamie and I back to Hotel Fjallby and we had the lunch buffet. We laid down for a nap and woke up at 5:45pm. We packed up our gear and got dressed waiting on Nicklaus (another guide from Lappland Media) to come pick us up but Peter showed up instead.   Jamie checked the forecast for the aurora in advance and […]

In the last post I left off after our first night of Aurora shooting.  We were so pumped we had a hard time going to sleep.  We curled up in the bed and looked at the pictures again till we couldn’t keep our eyes open.  The next day we woke up in time to grab a quick breakfast before our Dogsled tour with Lina and Morgan of Abisko Dogsled.  Lina […]

So we just grabbed a power nap, wrapped up in our snow gear and waiting on Peter Rosen to come pick us up. Peter picked us up at 7pm and drove us to pick up another photographer who was visiting from Italy.   Then we drove to the outside of Abisko National Park.  From there we had to ride on a snow mobile pulling a sled to get to his […]

Hey everyone!  Been a while, I know.  Today I’m going to share with you a reason to ALWAYS have you camera ready.  We had an engagement shoot at the local botanical gardens.  Jamie and I got there early to scout around and pick out the spots we were going to use.  As we were going back to the entrance to meet the client we came around a corner and this young […]

Day five had a late start since we didn’t get to bed till 7am.  We were wired from shooting the night before, but a nice rainstorm knocked us right out.  We spent the day driving to different locations finding a better spot to try again tonight. A huge thanks goes out to local photographer David Shaw.  David is a photographer in Alaska and leads various photo tours.  He was kind enough […]

So here we are on the fourth day of our trip to Alaska.  At the drop of a hat, we decided to try and catch a plane over Denali National Park.  We had a hard time finding a plane with room but our luck held out and someone found room for us.  We flew in to the center of the park and took the bus back out.  The flight in took about […]

Hey guys!  Today I’m posting some photos from the second and third days of our trip to Alaska.   After the disappointment of the night before and the exertion of the hike, we decided to just drive around Fairbanks and check out the sites.  It was a pleasant enough drive and only MOSTLY cloudy.  First, we stopped by one of the view-point to the Trans-Alaska Pipeline.   We also drove […]

Recently Jamie and I went to Alaska to get some pictures of the Aurora Borealis or Northern Lights.  I’ve heard that seeing the lights is a life changing experience, but its wasn’t just seeing the Aurora. Alaska itself was breath-taking and wonderful. I met amazing people and made some great photographer contacts. There were photographers EVERYWHERE!!! You couldn’t go anywhere and not see people taking pictures. Everything from camera phones […]
