Thanks to All

Hi Redbubble people,sorry I haven’t responded on your very nice and inspiring comments on my recent photos but I have been extremely busy with my truck driving job, 300 hours a month doesn’t leave me much time for anything..but Sandra has been keeping me up to date of all the nice remarks that you have left…also thanks to the person that bought a greeting card of my aurora photo Friday Night Lights…anyways hope you all have a splendid New year and I will be slowing down sometime in the near future so I hope to get caught up….Cheers and again thanks so much to you all….Steve

A Week to Remember

this great week started last Friday,I got to photograph my first red auroras and those made the homepage of Spaceweather.com…cool,and on Saturday night more northern lights some of the most colourful I’ve seen..more cool,on Tuesday I delivered 18 framed prints to the art gallery for my Northern Travels Exhibit that opens tonight,and was interviewed by the Alaska Highway newspaper and made the front page of Thursdays paper,and to top it of on Wednesday I received an email from National Geographic requesting hi-res files of two of the red aurora photos that were on the Spaceweather site…way too cool, and during all of this I still managed to log over 3500 km of trucking …not to bad for an old trucker….

In AWE of Black and White Photography

a few years ago when Sandra was building our first website we came across a photographer from California by the name of Mitch Dobrowner and every time I go to check what he has been up to well I feel so inspired by his photography ,tonight I was browsing his Storm portfolio and WOW is not enough to describe the true mastery of his Black and Whites,I am going to add a link so maybe some of you can also visit his site, we have a lot of world class artist here on Redbubble , this man is someone we all can aspire to…Mitch Dobrowner
