- Mark Alberhasky, Travel Photographer and Medical Pathologist- “Homo Borealis”

(Editor’s note: Since there were inquiries regarding the amazing photo Mark sent in for the last TLC- Update blog the elongated story of how Mark shot this photograph is included below. Enjoy.)

I became interested in photographing the northern lights during December of 2013. I began doing research and found the prospect of seeing the aurora was both location and season dependent. While many US photographers choose Alaska as their destination, I discovered that Iceland was a viable alternative and decided to revisit there in winter, having previously enjoyed a visit in early summer. One of my favorite locations in Iceland is Jökulsárlón and I envisioned the aurora dancing over the glacial lagoon with icebergs. After tempting a fellow photographer to chase the light with me, we booked the trip to be near the spring equinox in March, a favored time for northern lights.

I read up on technique for best capturing the aurora and took several wide angle lenses to offer a variety of options. A fast Nikon 24mm f/1.4 offered shorter shutter speeds by gathering more light. The Zeiss 21mm f/2.8 offered a true, fixed, infinity focus set point and the Nikon 14-24mm f/2.8 would provide flexibility in focal length. I even threw in my Nikon 10.5mm f/2.8 fisheye to round things out.

Despite the best planning, however, our greatest windfall was the pure luck: two days before we left the sun rotated a sunspot into earth view and discharged a huge solar flare. Having done everything we could to maximize the likelihood of success, our fortune would be decided by the weather. If we were spared clouds we would have a chance of aurora borealis. On our first night in Iceland at dinner, our hotel host came to our table to announce there was aurora in the sky visible from the hotel. We rushed out and made our first attempts over a couple of hours, finding that everything was more difficult in the dark than we expected. The display, a first for us both, was still exciting.

The next day we drove to Jökulsárlón, arriving late in the evening so starved we felt we had to eat even though there was a hint of aurora in the sky. As we finished our meal we overheard other photographers just coming in describe the evening's light show as over. ‘Clouds just rolled in,’ they lamented. We looked at each other and said, ‘So what? We're here. Weather changes. Let's give it a go.’

We drove to the glacial lagoon and the clouds were already moving away. The aurora display was spectacular. Over the next several hours it grew in intensity, spanning the sky from horizon to horizon. As our energy faded and more clouds starting moving in hours later, I decided to try one last shot. I laid my red-filter-shrouded penlight on the ground in front of my fellow photographer, backlighting him. I made two exposures and it was time to leave. When I saw the file on he computer screen I was stunned. The combination of lights, landscape and my friends sihlouette proved magical. It almost looked like his figure was descending from the aurora streaks in the sky, so I dubbed the image Homo borealis. The last shot of the night remains one of my favorites from the entire Iceland trip.

- Meg Mimura, Journalist, Producer- Tony, How have you been? Busy, I assume. I just wanted to let you know that the documentary I worked on (as a Consulting Producer) was screened at LA Film School on July 22nd.

This documentary had been in the making for several years. When John Chavez, Producer/Director/Editor, told me about the Pittsburg Mallards, I thought this is the story that needs to be told! Since 2010, I've been looking for something 'meaningful' to do and this was one of the projects that came my way and completed fairly quickly.

In this day and age, we could certainly use something hopeful and heart-warming. I certainly enjoyed working with John in many aspects of this project such as research, editing, and marketing, but the most rewarding thing was the fact that I was heard! After all, I've been struggling to be heard ever since I was a little girl.

I hope you'd have a chance to enjoy the fruits of our labor.”

THROWN FOR A LOSS

A documentary produced and directed by WIF Member John Chavez- In November, 1963, a youth football team from a blue-collar town in Northern California has a once in a lifetime opportunity to meet President John F. Kennedy. Tragically, fate intervenes on November 22nd, 1963 and they attend the president's state funeral instead. Four days later in Philadelphia these same young men defeat Mayfair Athletic Club 33 to 0 to complete a perfect season and an unforgettable odyssey. This film is based on the true story of a uniquely, diverse group of boys who start their trip as youngsters but who return as young men devoted to their coach and determined to carry on even after being "Thrown For A Loss".

- Anjelica Jardiel, Photographer, Documentarian- Hi Tony! It's been a very long time- hope all is well and that you are still inspiring students everyday.

I wanted to reach out, because I am currently pursuing my life's work full-force, which began to take form during my independent study with you in 2011/12.  The project was put on the back burner for a couple years, as I was working to find my place in the commercial industry.  I moved to New York at the beginning of this year, but am now back in LA.  I am taking advantage of this time to really think about what I want to do with my life.

I am formulating the plans for THE APOLOGETIC EPIDEMIC year-long tour of Asia.  I seek to create a documentary film, series of photographic portraits that will become a book paired with essays, and curate a traveling gallery show.

Intention of The Apologetic Epidemic Project: An investigation of the culture behind the behavior and exoticification of the Asian Female, deconstruct perceptions and stereotypes worldwide, and interview various age groups of Asian women to demonstrate evolution over generations. Through the media of photography, journaling, and interviews I will create a book, documentary film, and a traveling gallery show that broadens single-minded perceptions of the Asian Female.

The project, “…stemmed from an observation that Asian women excessively apologize, whether out of politeness, fear of offending another, guilt, or sheer habit. The project grew into an exploration, in which I find the universalities that exist among all of us. This project has a singular mission – to convince Asian women to stop apologizing for who they are.”

"LOCAL / NOT LOCAL is an exhibition that showcases the works of Arabic and Iranian designers based in California. This connection is reflected in their work in the form of on-going client work from the Middle East, self initiated projects, or locally based client work. Bringing Arab and Iranian artists and designers under one roof, the point of this exhibit is to break the notion that Arabic and Iranian typography is only practiced in the Middle East. Arab and Iranian designers reveal through their design practice that Arabic and Iranian typography is alive in California through community based projects, collaborations,
and commercial work from abroad ,
done locally."

Though it's a small photo, my Corvettes even made the cover. Fun!
Hope you enjoy it too.”

Also (from a later email): The Death Valley travel and photo adventure for Dec 2-7 is already booking!

- Laura Elliott, Author- “I just arrived back in The States last week. My journey ended up being a 90-day trip around-the-world :D I originally planned to travel for 5 weeks to visit Australia and Indonesia, but the universe had other plans! In the end I travelled to Australia, Indonesia (Java, Bali, Lombok, the Gili Islands), Nepal, Thailand and Belgium. There really are no words for how it has transformed my life and given me a new direction. I had the opportunity to do dental relief work in Kathmandu before trekking the Everest Base Camp trail (at the exact same time the avalanche killed the 16 Sherpas). Sometimes stories find you. So many stories found me. I am in the process of writing about them and producing short documentary films about my experience. I feel like I am in the creative flow in a big way. My purpose in life is clear now.

I need to thank you and my classmates so much. I was at such a low point in my life. And because of the strength and courage that I received in your class and the great gift of you believing in me when I couldn't believe in myself, I went big, planned the trip and met myself in the world. I now have a new very exciting direction for my life. Thank you so much.”

I'm working on a new website, it includes some of my recent non-profit work, "Songs in the Key of Steven Blier" and business card for "CPR".

- Amy Gaskin, Photographer- (Editor’s note) As you can see from the insert, Amy decided back in December to cover horse racing and a particular horse to feature. The horse she chose—out of all the horses—was California Chrome who has won the first two legs of the Triple Crown and now is a favorite to be the first Triple Crown winner with a victory in the Belmont this coming Saturday, June 7. We wish California Chrome and Amy the best of luck this coming weekend.)

“Hi...thought you might like to see this photo spread and article in the paper…
Just got credentialed to go to the Belmont (last in Triple Crown) so frantically packing for Monday...

Happy Trails,”

Amy
