My passion for photography started after my first seminar from National Geographic‘s Jim Brandenburg almost 30 years ago. His take-home message was “learning to shoot where you are at.” Over the years, I have enjoyed taking photos of nature, wildlife and macro photography. After witnessing the overhead Aurora Borealis in Iceland, my passion has turned into an obsession.
I currently chase the northern lights consistently in all weather, here in the Twin Ports, and generally in northern Minnesota. On May 5th, 2018, my capture of a rare overhead aurora, a ‘STEVE’ (Strong Thermal Emission Velocity Enhancement), was featured in both the Ely Echo newspaper, and nationally on spaceweather.com. We are blessed to have many opportunities throughout the year in Minnesota, and I will teach you how, where and when to shoot the amazing aurora borealis.
