His work is available to peruse and purchase online, and clients can also log into their password-secured portal to view and order prints. Take a piece of Alaska home with you, with photographs available in a variety of sizes with customizable mounting and display options. From canvas to metal prints, acrylic metal to wall art, there’s something for everyone at this renowned studio.

A Bear of a Time

Staurseth is also a SafetyTeam Manager for the Alaska FAA SafetyTeam. As a local artist, he brings his passion and love for Alaskan natural beauty to his photography. Visiting Haines in January can mean many trails and outings aren’t available, but that doesn’t mean you have to miss out on the natural beauty of the area.

Fall in love with a piece of Alaska you can take home with you. With over 30 years of photography experience, Staurseth has a unique eye and ability to capture the often-missed pieces of paradise around the state. Perfect for a gift, to display at home or the office, Staurseth can also arrange shipping around the world.
