What’s up

Hello friends, I am often aloof on the internet for my own reasons, I don’t need to make excuses, life is more important than facebook.  It is time for a little update.  I live in Anchorage, I have been working at a small whale watching company during the summer season for the last 7 years.  I have become a photographer out of necessity, there is too much wildlife and so many beautiful places.  I haven’t sold many photos but, I have won a few awards, that’s not the point, it makes me happy.  I have worked up to a point of understanding about the world around me, not especially profound, but interesting enough to give presentations on the subjects of my learning.  A profession that has been lost in history is something called a naturalist, the greats John Muir, Henry Thoreau, and John Audubon to name a few.  That is the closest descriptor of what I do these days, study, learn, explore, attempt to understand.  Often I’ll focus on one particular subject at at time, a big stack of books, but of all things I enjoy animal behavior the most.  This study of the animals around me it makes the photographing of them easier by anticipating their movements.  Alaska produces some fantastic surprises and opportunities to explore. Just a little of what is going on in my neck of the woods.

Best wishes,

Simon

  1. Having somewhat recovered from jet lag I have finally unpacked all things Alaska and found the CD of the photos you gave us. They are AMAZING and put ours to shame! I am so glad we got to spend time with you aboard Alaskan Dream Aug. 19 – 29, 2015. Wonderful times!
