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.

Dogs in planes. Gets me every time.

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.
Children in #Huslia#Alaska watch #iditarod mushers arrive. The native village of Huslia, half way point of the 2017 Iditarod, is a community rich in mushing history and home of the late sprint champion musher George Attla, Jr and other top mushers of the past 40 years. Although mushing originated with Native Alaskans, it's popularity in Native communities has dwindled over the past century. However Huslia is currently working to bring the tradition back to their village with community programs. #onassignment for @natgeo
From Alaska to New York, everyone's fighting for spring to arrive! #missedyouNYC

Some dog teams rest while others hit the trail in Nenana, the first checkpoint of the 2017 Iditarod. It was such a wonderful time photographing the race this year for @NatGeo, stay tuned for work online and on Snapchat this Friday!

Casa Bomalley Winter Wonderland with @ashadamsphoto@jomalley17. side note-this was the first time I think I've ever seen Anchorage look like I'd always imagined it, since I've been coming to AK documenting climate change and record breaking warm weather I've only seen snow in Anchorage trucked in for the Iditarod...today it felt like a whole new city. Okay. And now I'm on to another one! Sitka bound! 🦑
Circle Hot Springs, just 40 miles away from the Arctic Circle in Alaska, USA. This haunted, abandoned hot springs resort is currently on the market for only 2 million! I mean, someone's gotta want to go in on this unique investment opportunity with me...? Shot with Fuji X-T2 thanks @fujifilmx_us@fujifilm_northamerica.
I'm on a plane. Again. But for the first time in a good long time I am Alaska bound!! First stop the Yukon Quest trail, where this whole Northern love affair of mine began exactly three years ago! Cannot wait to see all the great Quest people and dogs, it's been a great race to follow from afar, so excited to get to see it in person! @officialyukonquest@espnmag
Dogs rest at the Braeburn checkpoint during the 2015 Yukon Quest shot on assignment for @natgeo and featured in new photo essay "Honest Dogs” in the Virginia Quarterly Review @vqreview (link in bio) with words by brilliant author and dog musher Blair Braverman @blair_braverman. This very special race begins again next week @officialyukonquest.

"I really want to attend the Women’s March because of the way that Trump portrays women as very sexual, like they are pieces of meat. Even before Trump, there are many instances where women aren’t treated as equally as men. And I think it is very important that both of them are seen as equal." Sarah Abbas, 15, sophomore at Washington Latin Public Charter School. Teens from D.C. and Tupelo talk about Trump, politics and what they’re doing over inauguration weekend, shot #onassignment for Bright Reads. #brightreads#womensmarch@womensmarch

Congratulations to the Copper Basin 300 WINNER Ryne Olson @rynokennel! And to 2nd place finisher Paige Drobny @squidacreskennel and 3rd place finisher Michelle Phillips (who I need a picture of)! The season for my favorite sport/best sport ever- dog sled racing (known as mushing)- began with a bang when for the first time ever 1st, 2nd and 3rd place in the Copper Basin 300 race all went to female competitors- two of whom I have immortalized in this primo fangirl mashup.

Jacob and Michelle Proulx, animal caretaker and education programs director at @wolfsanctuaryco (Wolves Offered Life and Friendship). Shot with new Fuji XT2. @fujifilmx_us@fujifilm_northamerica
Jacob: Jacob was originally owned by a private individual in New Jersey who had three wolf/dogs. When the three escaped from their enclosure in 2013, they had an adventure wandering the streets of a small town in New Jersey. The adventure could easily have turned into a disaster if law enforcement and citizens had not acted responsibly to round up the trio. Two of the animals quickly returned home but Jacob did not. He was the last animal to be captured and the video of his time on the streets is frightening and sad. He wandered for several miles down busy streets and in traffic. He caused a stir with some local residents as he approached a school area where children were just ending the school day. Jacob was never aggressive or threatening. He was a bit nervous and curious. Jacob was eventually captured, snared on the ground and returned to his owner.
W.O.L.F. is located in the foothills of Northern Colorado, just northwest of Fort Collins. Since 1995 they have been rescuing captive born wolves and wolf dogs that are unable to be cared for by their original owners and providing them with permanent, life-long sanctuary at our mountain facility. @parismatch_magazine takeover photo by @katieorlinsky
