Talent, technology, and the creative spirit
One of the best things about producing Alaska magazine is the opportunity to work with such a dynamic, talented team. I’d like to welcome two new members who’ve recently joined: Corrynn Cochran as digital content editor, and Tim Lydon as assistant editor. Readers might recognize Corrynn’s name from her former stint here as photo editor; she brings a wealth of energy and skills to our online presence. Tim is a journalist and public lands advocate who’s written for us before and now compiles The Cache section. It’s always good to have new ideas flowing and fresh perspectives on the magazine and our great state.
This photography-themed issue includes the winners of our 2022 photo contest as well as a how-to article on choosing the right photo tour, a feature on macrophotography, a piece on how to have fun with photo editing, and more on photography for shutterbugs of all types.
Not a photographer? Not to worry—there’s plenty of other fodder here too. Delve into Alaska’s cannabis industry to see how it’s faring; follow along with a couple as they boat to their cabin; learn about the state bird; try the recipe for blueberry cobbler.
In each issue, regardless of the overall theme, we try to include something for everyone. And, as always, we hope you enjoy the photos that showcase Alaska’s natural wonders and cultural gems.
