Fur seals are notorious assholes on land. They’ll make a big huff if you’re within two miles of them, try to chase you, and vocalize their discontent. Ultimately, they’re giant wimps, but it’s still irritating when you’re trying to work. In the water they become these playful, almost adorable animals. They spyhop and dance around boats. They become infinitely more tolerable and curious. Why? I wish I knew.

The other day I smelled something that reminded me of snow, ice, and ocean. I started to think about how out of all of the things I’ve experienced over the past few years, the things that are the most challenging for me to describe are the smells I associate with Antarctica and the near paralyzing awe I would often feel in such a beautiful place. These experiences are intangible for so many, and I often ache at the fact that I am often unable to share even a fraction of that with people. It is the one thing that haunts me with photography, but it is also the one thing that makes me strive to keep making images.

One of my favorite activities at Palmer Station was exploring the “backyard”, which consisted of a boulder field and a portion of the Matt Ice Piedmont (a glacier) that we could hike and ski on. This was the view walking up the glacier. Mount William was just tall enough to peek over the glacial horizon, and provided constant company for those anyone on the glacier.

You may have seen this image before, but never like this! Stylized black and white, or as my fellow photographer, @iammakingart, says of some of my photos: “tastefully blown out”.

It’s been a long while since I’ve posted. I’ve recently gone back through everything I have, and I found a few images that I’ve never edited or shared, for whatever reason. This might be one of my favorite recent discoveries. A portrait of a fur seal.

It’s been an insane stretch here for me lately, but I have a little time coming up where I can put together a 2019 calendar. It will be entirely on beekeeping, entirely in black and white. As much as I love my other photography, I really started to find my “voice” while shooting in the hives. Really excited to show everyone a preview in a few days!

I have this same photograph taken on my digital camera as well, but find it so hard to emulate the exact depth and feeling that was captured using film.

It was a giant, a veritable monster made of ancient ice. We all watched as it crumbled into nothing over the course of several weeks; a titan cut away at the knees and left to rot.

A young Weddell seal enjoying some time on the Palmer Station pier. Quite possibly one of the most adorable seals I have ever seen. (Pardon the sensor spots 🙈)
