Bio: My name is Matt Skinner. I have called Alaska “home” for over 8 years. My biggest passion in photography is shooting landscapes, although I love to experiment and practice in other genres as well. Alaska provides great opportunities to hone my skills and to become a better photographer through it’s unique landscape, wildlife, and night sky phenomena such as the Aurora Borealis. I remember seeing the Aurora for the first time in 2009; back then it was exciting but I had no idea what I was doing behind the camera. Now, because of the necessity of knowing my settings when shooting the Northern Lights, it has forced me to become a better photographer. Since I have taken a serious interest, I've had the honor of being published in online publications, multiple print magazines and USA Today newspaper. I attribute my successes to my passion and persistence for the art of photography.

Bio: My wife Becky and I consider us to be counted among the few fortunate Americans that call Alaska home. I love sharing the beauty of this breathtaking state with family, friends, and social media followers through the lens of my camera. Due to my unique circumstances I get to spend more than just a few days in some very remote parts of the state. This allows me to capture Alaska at her best.

Bio: My husband, our children, and I moved to Alaska from Montana in 2014, and instantly fell in love with this big beautiful state. I have always enjoyed photography, but didn't start to truly explore my passion for it until 2015. With the abundant beauty and wildlife that surrounds us, I never leave home without my camera and I love getting outdoors and experiencing what this majestic state has to offer. My roots are Montana, but my home and heart are in Alaska.

December - Ed Boudreau

Bio: I am a landscape and nature photographer currently living in Eagle River, Alaska. After spending 28 years focusing on the defense of my country, my minds eye had always been focused on her beauty. After retirement in 2010 my lovely wife bought me my first DSLR and pushed me out to the great outdoors and I'm having a blast running amuck throughout Alaska, trying to stay one step ahead of the bears. I hope you enjoy my work as much as I enjoyed bearing the elements to capture what moved me.
