A walrus colony in Svalbard, Norway. Back to work! Editing photos with @lightroom from my recent assignment in the Norwegian Arctic starting with this handsome fella and his sexy side tusk :) #ad In all seriousness though, it is truly a privilege to get to observe and be impacted by these wondrous (and wonderfully disgusting) creatures in their natural habitat. And while this guy might not look stressed out, melting sea ice and warming weather caused by climate change are challenging the survival of marine mammals in the Arctic more and more each day. #makeitimpactful#climatechange#svalbard#arctic#walrus@adobecreativecloud
Land ahoy! Back in Longyearbyen after ten days of sailing and adventures and walrus and polar bears and (pictured here) paddle boarding at 80 degrees north, fulfilling the dream I never knew I had of swimming ever so gracefully in a safety suit side by side with sea ice :) @seilnorge
Ke du vil? (Loose translation-What you want? :) off we go sailing with Sail Norway @seilnorge to circumnavigate the Svalbard archipelago in the Norwegian high Arctic for the next ten days! I'll lose service soon so see you in ten days Internet! :) @seilnorge@matsgrimseth@parismatch_magazine
My polar bear photo got the @creativecloud#MakeItImpactful treatment! #ad I first edited this photo in Lightroom and then collaborated with the talented Luke Choice (@velvetspectrum) who added his designs with #ProjectFelix. Check out the final piece on his page, and for all you designers out there check out the Felix tutorial contest link in Luke’s bio.
Photo by Katie Orlinsky/Caption: In late September polar bears flock to the Native Village of Kaktovik in the Alaskan Arctic to eat at "the boneyard": the remains of whales annually hunted by the Inupiat community. Melting sea ice has changed the migration and diet of the bears; one of the many ways climate change has affected both the bears and the Kaktovik community.

Bye Bannf thank you for all your mountains and rivers and lakes and wonderful people at the @banffcentre
One more... with that water just can't help it... #lakelouise
Im pretty sure photographing the books you haven't read yet in a beautiful library is practically like reading them. Or not reading them. One of the two.
My new @banffcentre roommate Ollie on a morning hike up and around the #Grassi glacial lakes. He is really helping me with my editing.
#ad I teamed up with photographers @garethpon and @eye.c to edit and tone one of my favorite photos using Adobe Photoshop Lightroom CC @lightroom. The results and the #MakeItImpactful tutorial challenge details are in the link in my bio. Participate in the tutorial contest and you could win a $1,000 Adorama Camera gift certificate, a one-hour mentoring session with one of us, and a one-year @AdobeCreativeCloud subscription (terms and conditions apply). Later today I'll be around to answer tutorial and contest questions on Instagram Live! Stay tuned!

#ad One month ago I was in San Francisco meeting my talented and inspiring #Adobe#MakeItImpactful team and getting on the #Lightroom@adobecreativecloud bandwagon. It’s really come in handy with one of my biggest projects this spring and summer-a new portfolio! Sneak peak at some new additions here :)

I was sorry to miss the Chris Hondros Fund Benefit and Silent Auction this past week but glad to hear the above print was sold with proceeds going to help the wonderful work of the @chrishondrosfund (Congrats to this years winner @meridithkohut!)
#ad Excited to announce that I’ll be collaborating with @AdobeCreativeCloud for the rest of 2017! It all starts now in San Francisco where I’m going to meet an awesome group of photographers, designers and artists, learn about creating for impact, all things #lightroom and share my own experience and workflow. I’ll be posting updates throughout on my @instagram stories tomorrow. Stay tuned! #makeitimpactful

Every March, approximately 80 dog teams teams journey one thousand miles across the Alaskan wilderness from the outskirts of Anchorage to Nome in one of the toughest races known to man- The Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race. I was lucky enough to photograph it on assignment for @natgeo this year and will be sharing some outtakes and video here today.

The Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race is a 1,000-mile journey held every March across the Alaskan wilderness from Anchorage to Nome. The race is the most popular sporting event in Alaska and one of the toughest races known to man. Last month I photographed it on assignment for @natgeo and will be sharing some outtakes here and on my @theiwmf Instagram takeover.
Caption: A musher prepares their dog team to start the 2017 Iditarod in Fairbanks, Alaska. The race normally begins 300 miles away in Willow, but poor trail conditions caused by warming weather and lack of snow have been re-routing the race more regularly. Climate change is a daily reality in Alaska, affecting everyone from dog mushers to indigenous hunters.
