Despite being on the backside of the solar cycle, 2017 has truly been a fantastic year for auroras and I have a few New Releases to show for it. In March, I finally got “Cathedral of Light” after trying for 15 years to catch the auroras over this Anchorage church. In October, I had a wonderful trip to the Brooks Range of Northern Alaska and came home with “Braids of Light” - a vertical pano shot that my wife Shay had requested. During the road trip up I was energized by “Mountain Mojo” and on the way home I stopped near Fairbanks and got blown away by “Mystic Mascot.”
IT’S SHOWTIME! You are invited to come check out our 19th Annual Dimond Center Holiday Gallery in Anchorage, Alaska. We’ll have our storefront next to Santa from November 20, 2017 until January 7, 2018. Shopping online or have any questions? Feel free to call our Gallery Phone directly at (907) 868-7389.

Each of these movies are a great way to experience the awe-inspiring auroras in motion through Todd's extensive time-lapse footage. Together, they provide an in-depth experience into real life aurora hunting and were many years in the making. Both visual journeys are enhanced with science and music that ranges from space-age acoustic sensations to aurora rock! 3-Movie Bundle
Here's a graph illustrating when in the solar cycle I've taken some of my favorite shots. The key thing to remember is that auroras occur throughout the cycle from Solar Max to Solar Min. They're just not quite as common during the lows in the cycle. More on the Solar Cycle
We are absolutely smitten with Metal Prints. The results of having my aurora & scenic shots printed on aluminum have been WOW-With Out Words! 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!
