Feb 16, 2015 - The other week I got to shoot for the New York Times for the second time, a two day assignment that included cityscapes and a portrait of Mayor Dan Sullivan for a story on the economic impact of falling oil prices on Anchorage. The day was crystal clear, but hovering around 3 degrees fahrenheit which always makes making photographs without gloves interesting, and an exercise in self-torture. Have I mentioned that I need to find gloves that I can shoot in? Yeah, that's a thing. Anyway, the assignment was to focus on the Port of Anchorage area as well as downtown and other spots of economic interest around town. Anchorage definitely put it's best foot forward for me that day, with steam rising off of ship creek and gorgeous northern light on the Chugach range in the background. The story ran on A4 of April 4th's NYT, and you can read the online version here: http://www.nytimes.com/2015/02/09/us/matured-anchorage-struggles-to-shake-old-fears.html?_r=0
It definitely still feels new seeing my name on the byline.
