Flat Top Glen Allen Area 3 21 09 003

Gaylord Spurgeon


Landscapes came a little later, while in the service in northern Japan. I loved photographing the countryside there—it’s very similar to parts of Alaska. Eventually, I moved to Minnesota where I worked with several very talented commercial photographers, then came to Alaska—the best move of my life. The landscapes I had always imagined shooting were around every corner! And the quality, beauty, and palette of the light was beyond imagination...I could want nothing more than to embrace the majesty of Alaska. I love to photograph along the Sterling Highway, especially along Cooper Landing on the Kenai, as well as the Wasilla areaand of course the incredible grandeur of Denali.
