Andrew and I received an amazing offer from a good friend and professional wildlife photographer, Didier Lindsey, last summer. Basically, he said if we had time to spend with him this summer he would show us the ropes and help get us started in our photography business. Our second week in Alaska we drove down to Anchorage to get together with him and begin some schooling. What an amazing asset he has been already. So much knowledge it's almost overwhelming. He is an incredible photographer and teacher. It is such a pleasure getting to hang out with him in the field. And a huge bonus---his lovely wife cooked incredible meals for us all week!
We visited Potter's Marsh on the Turnagain Arm several times during the week. There is always something going on down there, and it's always a challenge.
Arctic Terns were the most challenging to take pictures of. They are such graceful birds, full of life and speed.
They would hover over their nests before landing. I really wanted to get a nice, crisp picture of it but was not quite lucky enough.
The geese are obviously swimming too close to its nest.
Didier said he would take us to shoot photos of a moose.
