While in Alaska last winter I took some photos of northwest carving artist Greg Arkle and his work. He does amazing carvings on a variety of mediums. He applies techniques used for centuries as well as traditional tools. So no sandpaper or electric tools, everything is done by hand with intricate and technical movements. It’s amazing to see the transformation of a block of wood into a mask or ladel. I have two of his pieces hanging on my wall, they add a very nice vibe to the house. Greg is an all around cool guy who fights fires all over the west coast in the summer and carves in the winter.
In other news; Brandon has returned safely from South America and I’m sure has some amazing photos to share with us. I’ll be doing some engagement photos near Lake Tahoe this weekend so look for some of that next week. I was out late last night doing some full moon photography and skiing so stay tuned to my personal blog for some images from that as well as from skiing Shasta. Thanks,
