A Summer in Katmai National Park is a detailed photographic journal that follows Barrett's summer. From the moment he stepped off the float plane to the moment he got back on to leave is documented with pictures. Come follow Barrett as he experiences the bears of Katmai National Park.
I graduated from Carson-Newman College in May 2008, with a BA in Photography. Immediately after graduation I went to Denali National Park to work at a hotel for the summer. On my off days and weekends I hiked through much of the park. It was an incredible experience. The next summer I went to Katmai National Park, in Alaska, and was the tour bus driver to The Valley of Ten Thousand Smokes. Katmai has the largest population of protected brown bears of any national park, and I saw bears every day I was there. Working around these animals was an awesome experience. During the winters I have worked at Beaver Creek ski resort in Colorado. On off days and while skiing I will still enjoy the outdoors and go take pictures.
