I don't get gushy often but....
I have always been a big dreamer...pie in the sky, angels and pixies, rainbow-clad unicorns. When I started photography a few years ago I formed many dreams about what I wanted to achieve...and receiving recognition for my work from the boss of all bosses, National Geographic, was probably one of the most ambitious. My friend +Brian Bonham
refers to this as the "pinnacle". I concur.
So you can imagine my inner (and outer) "sqee" when I received a message from #NatGeo
early this year asking if they could publish my time lapse film "Technicolour Alaska" in their Short Film Showcase. It was published this past Thursday and today it is their Editor's Pick of the Day.
To say I'm happy by this is an understatement. It's a huge validation of my growth in this field over the past couple of years. I have a long way to go but I have to say, it's a really fun ride.
Thanks to everyone who has supported me along the way so far...the messages I receive from friends, family, and complete strangers on a daily basis really propel me forward. I am inspired by the stream of positivity that have filled my posts lately... so from the bottom of my heart, thank you! And to those who are visiting my page for the first time, welcome! I appreciate you all.
Here's my mantra for the year 2015, if you missed it in my New Years post smile emoticon
"Approach each day with intent and end it with a smile"
I'm learning a little more each day about what this means to me. I'll write a post at the end of the year to tell you my conclusions smile emoticon
The original version of this film is posted here (along with my other films) and had received over 230,000 views before NatGeo picked it up. That's just amazing. http://vimeo.com/alexiscoram/alaska #natgeo #nationalgeographic #featured #film #timelapse #aurora #northernlights #alaska #fairbanks #magic #space #beautiful #alexiscoram
