Brent Reynolds Photography – Capturing Alaska
I served in the United States Coast Guard from 1998 to 2006 and shortly after picked up my first camera. I fell in love with photography after seeing Ansel Adams photography on display at Yosemite National Park in 2008 while attempting to capture a family vacation. I was in awe of how his photos transported the viewer to a place they may never visit. That was my goal; to capture places people may never be able to see and share those places with everyone.
Living in Alaska allows me the opportunity to capture wildlife and landscapes that some may never be able to witness and to share my home with others. Ansel Adams once said, “A true photograph need not be explained, nor can it be contained in words.” The highest praise anyone could ever give me isn’t purchasing one of my photographs, it is simply telling me they have no words to describe it. I have been honored to have my photos featured in the annual The Alaska Frontier calendar, the pages of Alaska.org, and most recently as the cover photo for the new Alaska map being put out by Alaska.org.
