Born in Minneapolis, Minnesota to a Swedish immigrant, he studied at the Minneapolis School of Fine Arts and the University of Minnesota. His career began with an internship with National Geographic in 1964, which was the start of over fifty years of work with the publication.

In evaluating print quality, these are the factors I take a hard look at:
• Colour Printing and Paper Profiles
• Tone Transitions
• Colour Shifts Under Different Lighting
• Surface Sheen on Luster and Glossy paper
• Black and White Qualities
• Paper Handling and Printing Speed
I made this image in early September of this year. I was using my new Pentax 645Z and had a 35 mm lens and a 75 but nothing in between. I made a vertical composition and then wanted to include more to each side, without adding extra top and bottom, so it just made sense to do a stitch, even though at 51 megapixels, I didn't really need the extra resolution. Switching to the 35 would have included a lot more.
