The 72-year old Open North American Championship sled dog race was held in Fairbanks, Alaska in March 2017. Roxy Wright of Fairbanks won the race after a 20-year absence from the mushing event. Buddy Steeper of British Columbia was second and Lina Steeper, his wife, finished third. The Race Marshal indicated this year’s race was one of the best competitions in a long time wise.
I used my Nikon D600 with a 70-200mm f/4 lens on a monopod to capture these images. I over exposed my medium and long range captures to ensure the snow was bright and natural looking. If snow looks gray due to underexposure the snow and everything else in the image is underexposed. I will remove any photography upon request by contacting me at 907-240-1025 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
