The program will be How to Chase and Shoot the Northern Lights. Join award-winning Alaskan photographer Carl Johnson as he explains some of the mythology and the science surrounding the aurora borealis, or northern lights. He will explain what causes the aurora borealis and how to use available tools to be a successful aurora chaser. Carl will also provide tips on how to photograph the northern lights.
Carl Johnson is an award-winning nature photographer, living in Anchorage, Alaska, with his wife, Michelle. He was born and raised in the Black Hills of South Dakota and got his photography start while serving in the U.S. Navy. His greatest photographic passion lies in coming to fully understand a particular location, photographing all of its wonders, from small plants to vast landscapes, and increasingly the people who live with the land and call it home.
In 2017, Carl was awarded the Daniel Housberg Wilderness Image Award for Excellence in Still Photography, Film, or Video by the Alaska Conservation Foundation. Carl’s first book, Where Water is Gold: Life and Livelihood in Alaska’s Bristol Bay, was published by Braided River in 2016. It has been awarded a Silver Medal in the Nautilus Book Awards and a Gold Medal in the Independent Publisher Book Awards.
Carl has worked as a guest lecturer and instructor for Tony Robbins, Princess Cruise Lines, and several remote lodges in Alaska. He owns the Arctic Light Gallery, the only nature photo gallery in the City of Anchorage, and Alaska Photo Treks, providing a variety of photography tours and workshops in Alaska.
