Todd Salat was born an Iowa country boy, making his way to the mountains as often as possible. Once he came of age, it didn't take him long to find his way to Alaska.

Over the past 20+ years, mostly by trial and error, Salat has become one of the best photographers of the northern lights in Alaska, and the world.
