Advance Copies of the Alaska Range Book!

Fed Ex delivered two advanced copies of my upcoming Alaska Range book to the door today. It was exciting and a little scary seeing the first printed copies. I have also been working hard printing the 150 limited edition prints that go with the special edition.
I will admit that I am glad that I am printing these via a modern ink printer instead of an old “traditional” process like Ilfochrome. Printing hundreds of prints of the same image in a color analog darkroom was quite labor intensive and honestly, would often drive me near the brink of insanity!
I have sold about 1/3 of the copies of the special edition book/print set. You can pre-order your own copy or a copy of the retail version on the order books page.

Limited Edition Book Revealed!

Limited edition version. Only 150 copies will be printed!

Super excited to reveal the limited edition version of the book. Only 150 copies of this version will be printed and they are going fast! This book also comes with the print, Middle Triple Peak, 2015. This image will only be available with the book. Once the edition is sold out, the image will be retired, never to be printed again!

If you want one of these awesome collector books, consider pre-ordering one. Many of them have already been purchased (through our Kickstarter campaign and directly from me). I cannot guarantee any will be left when the book becomes available in late October.

First, I must apologize for the lack of activity. Its been a busy winter, but not a lot of action outside in the mountains. Still trying to recover from my hip injury that occurred over a year ago. Fortunately, being injured has allowed me to focus on getting the book details complete.

We are in the final stages of the process. All the essays are complete and edited. layout is complete and I just sent off my high resolution copies of the final photographs. We will have one more thorough review, looking for any missed issues before it is sent off to get printed!

The Mountaineers Books feels confident the book will be in stores and into YOUR hands in October.

Mark your calendars for the big book launch party November 28th at the Bear Tooth Theater, it is going to be a ton of fun!

The Writers!

The mighty Mount Hesperus towers over the Revelation Mountains.

The mighty Mount Hesperus towers over the Revelation Mountains.

The Alaska Range project has always been about celebrating one of the great mountain ranges of the world. I have always known that in order to truly do the Alaska Range justice, I would need to collaborate. This book is less about my photographs and more about Alaskans sharing the legendary Alaska Range with the world.

Seven great Alaskans have agreed to write a series of essays on the Alaska Range. Each one has spent a significant time in the Alaska Range and has a great appreciation and love for the mountains, glaciers, wildlife and wild plants that make the Alaska Range so special.

The essayists include:

Art Davidson

Roman Dial

Brian Okonek

Jeff Benowitz

Clint Helander

Verna Pratt

Bill Sherwonit

I am honored to have their words accompany my images.
