- Todd Salat Shots

Welcome to

We welcome your visit to learn more about the northern lights and to experience the aurora borealis through the camera lens of Alaska's Aurora Hunter, Todd Salat.

Happy Holidays,

This year has held a lot of aurora activity and I have three New Releases taken in 2015 (see below). From autumn auroras dancing over a bright sunflower in our Anchorage backyard, down to Turnagain Arm, then back up to Interior Alaska, it has been a fruitful time to keep eyes on the sky. Pure & natural fun!

I've also entered the game-changing realm of recording the aurora in their true speed as shown in the REAL-TIME AURORAS video above. It's new technology with the same methodology and my Mission Statement is the same as always:
Be There ~ Preserve the Moment ~ Share It!

We hope to see you at one of our Holiday Showtimes and you can catch our latest happenings at

Have a Great Season,

Solar Cycle Graph

Below is a graph illustrating when in the solar cycle I've taken some of my favorite shots. More sunspots leads to more solar flares which, in turn, means more aurora activity! And we are in the peak phase right now.

Precious Metals

This is my 3rd year of having my aurora & scenic shots printed on aluminum and the results have been With Out Words–WOW! The inks are dye-infused onto a specially-coated aluminum sheet and sealed with a gemlike UV coating that is both water and scratch resistant. We have commonly heard people say, "It's like looking through a window"...."Are these backlit?"...."They look so 3D." And the archival quality is out of this world (think century plus). This is a technological breakthrough and the results are in HIGH DEF!
