Bristol Bay Set Netting

Posted in Uncategorized by admin on July 20th, 2010

Bristol Bay is synonymous with salmon and is one of the world’s best sources for wild salmon.  Each June and July, southwest Alaska hosts local and seasonal commercial and subsistence set net fishermen as they head out to the banks of the Nushagak River to set their nets with hopes of intercepting red, silver, pink and king salmon headed to the spawning grounds in the upper Nushagak and  Mulchatna Rivers.  These men and women work long hours around the clock while sneaking in only a few hours sleep between sets.   “Bed head” takes on a whole new meaning as crew members often stretch out on the deck exposed to the wind, rain and chill.  In a short six weeks, a crew member can take home between $3,000 and $6000.  In a poor year the same fisherman can be lucky to break even.  Still they come, year after year, in hopes of grabbing a small piece of the one of the most prolific fish bonanza’s on earth. -Clark

Anchorage Celebrates the Fourth of July!

Posted in Uncategorized by admin on July 8th, 2010

Fourth of July in Anchorage has a particularly international flavor.  But for Honolulu, Anchorage has more cultural diversity than any other city in America.  The Fourth of July parade in Anchorage attracts new American citizens from every corner of the globe and creates a virtual gold mine for a photographer.  I hope you enjoy this small slice of the new face of America.  -Clark
