We have enjoyed working with amateur and professional photographers for many years. We've done several special charters for the wildlife photographer Kennan Ward and his wife. I especially enjoyed taking out David Muench, the landscape photographer, for three summers while he was shooting the Kenai Fjords part of his book, National Parks of America. One of our most interesting projects was doing a three-day shoot with a CNN crew and the actress Ali MacGraw. You may have seen the final product, a CNN special titled, "Wildlife Encounters with Ali MacGraw". Ali and the crew stayed at our Saltwater Lodging. We also provided an overnight trip to the Fjords with the crew, Ali, a kayak guide, and Park Ranger where they shot wildlife, remote camping, and kayaking scenes.
We've done similar special projects for the CBS Sunday Morning, BBC "Lonely Planet" Series (sea kayak special in the Fjords) and a TV Slovenia special. Our last video support project was with Original Productions of California for the Discovery Channel (Alaska Land of Extremes) filming calving glaciers in Aialik Bay.
