- 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.

Howdy Folks,

The 2016 Spring Aurora Hunting Season was exceptionally fun and rewarding with some very energetic light shows that had me hootin' and hollerin'. As a result I have two New Releases: "Talkeetna Vista" and "I Breathe Aurora." Both were taken in March 2016.

Although we are on the backside of the Solar Cycle the sun still has a lot of aurora-generating power to dish out! So for those planning their own aurora hunts it pays to stay in tune with the Space Weather.

You're invited to catch us at one of our Showtimes or Contact Us with any questions. And there's always Facebook/AuroraHunter to catch our latest shenanigans.

Have a Good One!

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!
