Here's proof positive that I'm no longer a legend in my own mind!
Doug Kelly, a writer who has visited Alaska, and Homer, many times has just published a historical accounting of Alaska's Greatest Outdoor Legends. Don't ask me how I got on that list.
All joking aside, I'm flabbergasted that I would be included with such real Alaska legends like Sydney Huntington, Jim Rearden and Jay Hammond.
All I can say is that my three decades as a staff photographer at the former Anchorage Daily News gave me such incredible opportunities to roam Alaska's great outdoors and bring back photographs from many great assignments.
Every budding photographer's greatest dream is to work for National Geographic. Well, I DID work for NG, because the Daily News offered their photographers constant opportunities to get out into the great wilds and return with images to show our readers the beauty of where we lived.
