p.8 #1 · p.8 #1 · Arctic Models @ 30 below zero!


I am seriouly thinking about giving up all of my collection.

I own all rights and as such I can give them away.

Lets say I give all rights to you. and give you a signed notarized paper giving you

all rights to these images for whatever use you want.

You get to sell these all.. and keep the money !!

what a deal eh ??

My concern is the children of all these villages.

I need to build nine new youth centers.

My plan is this. to give over the rights to certain indivicuals, they keep all the money that they generate..

Now if you care.. then you can donate what ever portion you want for these children in these 9 villages..

any input would be appreaciated.. thoughts or ideas.!!

thanks again for taking the 'TIME" !!

Not a bad days pay for high school dropouts

What an interesting thread! I loved the images that you shared here and the stories that went with each one of them. I found the way you get fresh water from the ice interesting. Thank you for sharing.

Children can't wait to test their new found skills at navigation on the water, Practing for that day when they will be trained for the real adventure.

Being creative involves using your imagination !!



Reflections can play a big part in being creative. Make use of them when possible !!

How to shoot from the hip, without ever using a light meter.

So this was Photoshop for the film folks. I did mess with film back in 1990... quit shooting....picked up the digital in 2004 and never looked back.

Very nice series of photographs!!!

Well, doing it the old fashioned way, required GREAT SKILL to process film and prints to achieve a color corrected print. Now anyone can do it blind!

In 1983 after my second whale hunt, I decided to fly to Anchorage to process my film & prints. Using snow as a water source was just too time consuming and I had a ton of work to do to process hundreds of rolls of film and make the prints.

I rented an one room apt. and turned that into my darkroom !!



Now I had running water and I could process .. .. effectively and quickly !!

A semi-automatic print process for sheets up to and including 16 x 20.

What a mess !! eh ?.

...wow...I beg to differ with the latter bit of that statement. In fact, I would argue that 99% of prints that people (not professionals in the print industry) create are not color corrected accuarately.

The ice is my domain. the temps are 20 - 50 below zero with strong winds.

we are located here in this image, some 7 miles out on the ocean ice pack, the ice has cracked, the lead has opened and animals will migrate through that lead opening.

this is why we have to be out here, long before it ever cracks open. How do they know where it is going to crack open ? In thirty years up here going out there.. I have yet to figure out .. .. how they know where to wait.



This is how we harvest FOOD, it sure beats waiting in line @ some grocery store, and it is much more exciting !

What a fantastic thread. I've been reading for hours, enjoying your stories and photos. Thank you for sharing all of this with us. The Inupiaq lifestyle is fascinating!

You mention that all parts of the animals are used. Nothing is wasted. With the seals above, I understand that meat is eaten and skin is sold or used to dress dolls. What about the bones, eyes, whiskers, and everything else?
