With a few tiny exceptions, the northern regions of the world are sparsely
populated, seldom visited and little understood.
Since 1996, I have been working in print and on the Web to increase awareness
of this world. Part of that involves my photography and historic photograph collection, as a
good picture truly is worth a thousand words. On this Web site you will find sample images
from my collection, which have been published in several books, magazines such as
and "Vancouver Magazine", online journals such as RV West, many Web sites including
Far North Fiberglass, and many
industry reports, calendars and smaller journals. My photographs are also frequently used on The ExploreNorth Blog.
Most Northern photographers look for wildlife subjects or scenics. Although I
have some wildlife images and many scenics, my specialty in broad terms is human interaction with this world.
That ranges from historic sites to modern tourism and community development. I travel
extensively both on the road system and by 4x4, canoe, aircraft and on foot and skis in the
backcountry to record these images.
I have a total of almost 20,000 copyrighted images in stock, available in any
resolution for your print, Web or audiovisual use. As well as the North, there are images from
southern Canada, the western United States, Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Turkey. They date
back to 1966, but the majority have been shot since the mid 1980s. Most of the images shot prior
to the summer of 2002 are 35mm Kodachrome 64 or K25 transparencies, the ones since that time are
The Yukon Territory and Alaska have been my primary focus for shooting
and for collecting historic images since 1990, but other areas are covered as seen in the list
below. Several pages with captioned sample images are linked from this list now (in bold), and more will be
added as development of this Web site continues. Subjects listed but
not yet linked are on the short list to be added. Both area and subject-specific pages are
being added as part of the development process.
