Carl Johnson (Alaska Photo Treks) is an award-winning nature photographer, living in Anchorage, Alaska, with his wife, Michelle. He was born and raised in the Black Hills of South Dakota and got his photography start while serving in the U.S. Navy. His greatest photographic passion lies in coming to fully understand a particular location, photographing all of its wonders, from small plants to vast landscapes, and increasingly the people who live with the land and call it home.
Carl has served as the artist-in-residence for Gates of the Arctic National Park and Preserve, Badlands National Park and Rocky Mountain National Park. He was the “Environmental Issues” winner for the Windland Smith Rice International Awards in 2010, and a recipient of an Individual Artist Fellowship from the Rasmuson Foundation in the same year. In 2017, he was awarded the Daniel Housberg Wilderness Image Award for Excellence in Still Photography, Film, or Video by the Alaska Conservation Foundation. Carl’s first book, Where Water is Gold: Life and Livelihood in Alaska’s Bristol Bay, was published by Braided River in 2016. It has been awarded a Silver Medal in the Nautilus Book Awards and a Gold Medal in the Independent Publisher Book Awards.
Carl has worked as a guest lecturer and instructor for Tony Robbins, Princess Cruise Lines, and several remote lodges in Alaska. He owns the Arctic Light Gallery—the only nature photo gallery in the City of Anchorage—and Alaska Photo Treks, providing a variety of photography tours and workshops in Alaska. He was the first American photographer to document the Norwegian long-distance dog mushing race, the Finnmarksløpet.
