With the support of Orvis and individuals via a Kickstarter campaign, I spent three months photographing the Bristol Bay region. The full commitment to accomplish this took me from source to sea on multiple rivers, timing locations to coincide with the peak of these legendary salmon runs. This was done solo, out of a pack raft in the most remote and dangerous locations imaginable. The photos I captured have been featured prominently by innumerable environmental groups and Save Bristol Bay has relied heavily on my images to further the cause. Pebble Mine threatens the Native Subsistence culture of a whole region, a sustainable commercial fishing economy, world class sportfishing, and the ecological gem which is this planets last remaining mega salmon run.
