  1. What a great gallery of winning images from guests’ experiences at the lodges. I know how hard it is to catch those moments, and how much work and patience, skill and luck goes into them. I was excited to see so many images from guests I’ve had the good fortune to meet and shoot alongside, and others who I’ve found through social media channels – Michael Rawicki (world-class photographer AND polar explorer who’s shot all over arctic), Ann Fulcher and Christie Allen (two of the hardest-working wildlife photographers I’ve met – they earn every shot and taught me a lot), Kathy Richardson (someone pointed me to her wonderful Instagram account), and the tough-as-nails Anja Kolb-Kokocinski who together with her sidekick and partner Felix put in hardcore WEEKS of travel in the heart of the winter for some terrific shots (along the way surviving a terrible blizzard and catching a glimpse of the elusive wolverine). Now I have a whole bunch of new photographers to track down on social media! Beautiful work and congratulations to all the contestants whether your images won or not.
