I travelled to Alaska in late October of 2022 with friends who wanted to see the aurora for the first time. We had all travelled together in March of the same year and despite several days of clear skies did not see it. On the evening of October 28th, we drove up the Denali Highway and stopped at a clearing with mountains on both sides of the road. The aurora was out and despite a temperature of 3 degrees above zero and strong winds, the entire group saw a really great display. I usually photograph the aurora alone but this trip with 5 good friends will remain in my memories along with the pictures that we all took.

Client Testimonials

Brad goes above and beyond to make sure that everyone is comfortable and getting the help they need, both out in the field and in post-processing. He is always there to answer any questions and he does so with kindness and patience. The small class size is perfect, and because he does not bring his own camera to the workshops, it allows him to spend quality time with each participant. – Jenny

Brad bleeds excellence in everything photography-related. He is kind, intelligent, quick-witted, knowledgeable, but most of all, caring. At no additional cost, Brad offered to lead during extra nights when weather threatened planned photoshoot evenings.  He purposefully left behind his camera to ensure focus on helping students.– Roger

I just attended my third Goldpaint Photography 5 day workshop in beautiful Mt. Shasta. That alone should tell you a lot about Brad’s workshops. I love Brad’s work professionally and love that he teaches his own processes to his students. He is the only instructor of workshops I have attended who does NOT bring his own camera. His full attention is on his students.– Patricia
