Gateway to the Tongass

Almost immediately after arriving in Sitka I had the amazing opportunity to go hike and film on Kruzof Island near Sitka.  Kruzof is home to a dormant volcano and is a world class destination for hiking and camping.

I am producing and shooting a film for the Sitka Conservation Society to promote Sitka as a gateway to the Tonagss National Forest and this place is one of the most incredible and accessible destinations around.   Below is a teaser screenshot from the film (COMING SOON!) and following are some fun production photos by the talented Alex Crook.
