Northern Lights: Fairbanks in Winter 2019 Tom Bol Photo Workshops

Blue eyes were a theme on our trip. They were mesmerizing both on the huskies....and on this "local".

We visited Just Short of Magic, a private kennel owned by Eleanor Wirtz. Her dogs were very friendly and the 4 mile sled dog rides were the perfect way to learn about mushing.

Some dogs were larger than life.
Our group loved being in Alaska - whether that meant photographing the Alaska Pipeline or eating in favorite local restaurants.
Friendly locals!

For the second part of our trip, we moved to Chena Hot Springs, an hour east of Fairbanks. A private tour of the Aurora Ice Museum made for a great evening of photography and fun!

The dog lot at Chena provided more opportunities to work on environmental portraits of sled dogs.

Ned could not decide if he loved the sled dogs or his boots more.
We used the Elinchrom ELB 500 to work on portraits below 20'
Our group dressed for cold temperatures
The last two nights of our trip were clear and we photographed the aurora. The temperatures were chilly and the group was delighted.
