Overview

When It's Dark, I See the Lights! My biggest passion is the Northern Lights and Night Sky photography, the reason why many friends started calling me Aurora Dora. For many years the darkness of the Alaskan winter nights gave me winter blues, but everything changed when I started shooting night images. Nowadays Auroras, Northern Lights, are my life. From long and cold nights photographing amazing auroras through the skies, and teaching northern lights photography workshops, to the summers explaining and showing the auroras to the ones that are not able to visit Alaska in the winters. I am a photographer in Alaska, living the dream life of many photographers.

Beautiful photos of the aurora borealis. Owner, who is also the photographer, provided details for each photograph. She provided details of when and where the various photos were taken. Prices were reasonable.

The photo we bought just a week or so ago arrived the other day and is already gracing our house. The photographer's work is wonderful and we always enjoy buying paintings or photographs from the places we visit. We were fortunate to hear the "story"...More

Jodi, the “salesperson” was amazing. She pointed out so many beautiful, no...spectacular photos and taught me so much about the Northern Lights. She’s a wonderful promoter of the photographer. Jodi was kind and welcoming. I believe I’ve made a special friend, an email/Facebook pal.

All the prints were a beautiful displace of color and each one had a back drop story. Some prints were on metal and there was 2019 calendar, each month with the Northern Lights and Aurora colors. Each print was valued priced.

They have a great selection of pictures mostly of the northern lights. There are some without the northern lights but all of Alaskan subjects. Shipping available if it’s too big to take with you.
