This could very well be my most traveled year ever.   After three weeks in Ireland and Scotland, and a few days in Baton Rouge shooting an ad for Capitol One,  I was commissioned by Alaska Seafood to photograph fishing families in Juneau, Kodiak, Dutch Harbor, and Naknek.  Amazing assignment, and even more amazing people met along the way.   From Naknek, I fired up my skiff and set out with  good friend/writer/deckhand Tim Sohn for five weeks commercial fishing for sockeye salmon at the mouth of the Kvichak River.  Fishing was out of control good.  Little sleep was had. Many fish lives were lost.
