Keith Williams: Congratulation, this is great work Phil. There is some truly impressive photography on display here. I look forward to seeing some of your current work. It's always inspirational to see nature photography of this caliber, especially of the Yukon.

Richard C. Patterson: Just wanted to provide you with a piece of Whitehorse history. One of my uncle's was the Roman Catholic Bishop of the Yukon and Northern British Columbia. Everytime he came for a visit and he would enjoy his visits with the North American side of the family because it gave him a chance to take off his collar and become a civilian. I remain respectfully yours, Richard C. Patterson.

Peter Holdroyd: I am learning to take digital photographs and process them in PhotoShop. Your pictures are really inspirational and aspirational. I found your site because I'm a novelist whose current 'hero' works in the Yukon, and based in Whitehorse, from where he spends much time in the wilderness, and I was looking for research material to help me make sure my descriptions of the countryside around the city is reasonably accurate. Your photos are very helpful in this respect. Some of them bring back fond memories of the brief time my wife and I spent visiting Canada and also Skagway, where we travelled on the White Pass & Yukon Railroad and 'Liarsville'. Great times!

Martin Lukens-Rumscheidt: My brother and daughter, plus their partners and children, live in Whitehorse. I've been there numerous times and wished I were younger because then I'd live there too. So, I look at your photos to make up for living in Nova Scotia instead - a beautiful place too. Your work is brilliant and the beauty of what you photograph brings much joy to a Yukoner at heart. I congratulate you on your splendid artistry. - Martin

Rosemarie Kovic: I very much enjoy your web site. The photos are spectacular. I am a novice web master for "" We try to find homes for strays, etc. I found your web site because I was trying to find information on foster care (for animals), and I happened on to your local animal shelter. I loved that site also. I did a search for the town and I have been telling everyone how beatiful your web site is. I live in Fallbrook, California, and it is very warm here. I grew up in Northern Illinois (Great Lakes, Chicago area). I know cold and the beauty of winter. But, I have never seen the Northern Lights. Merry Christmas! Sincerely, Rosemarie Kovic

Donna: Fantastic Photos. I wish I had the knowledge to do with photos that you have done.
December 1, 2005 8:48AM

Terry Hill: Hello, Phil: Great pictures! The ones of the Northern Lights are awesome. I'm told that there is a DC-9 that is mounted on a pole, and is a giant weathervane. Do you happen to have any pictures of that on your site anywhere? I live in Novi, Michigan, by the way (near Detroit). Thanks. I am going to add your site to my favorites.
October 27, 2005 10:28PM

Gerry McCleave: I'm in hot dirty Brooklyn, Ny and thought I'd take a look at what my son might be viewing as he and 3 friends bike their way from Anchorage to Seattle. They stopped in Whitehorse for some direly needed bike repairs. I'm an artist and love nature - your photos are supremely beautiful. Is this the way it is there? It's like going to a heaven on earth. Thanks for your talent and I most appreciate your time at letting us webbers take a look at Whitehorse and its surroundings.
August 9, 2005 3:59PM

Linda: I can find no words to express the beauty of the photos. I thought Ontario where I live had some great beauty, but it doesn't compare with the Yukon. I hope to one day see it in person. Utterly breathtaking.
June 25, 2005 6:10PM

Martha: Your pictures are absolutely breathtaking. I am leaving for a trip through Alaska and Western Canada soon. I hope I see some of these marvelous sights along the way and can capture even half the beauty with my inexperienced camera skills! Thanks for sharing.
June 10, 2005 10:04AM

Julie Schmidt: Your pictures are so great they've kept me up way past bedtime. They brought back fond memories of our trip to the Yukon and Whitehorse in the late 90's. Some how we never managed to see the northern lights. It was June and too bright I guess. All the more reason to go back again! Cheers Julie

Miriam Holder: Hi Phil, Your pictures are awesome! You have really captured the vibrant Yukon colors, wildlife and scenes from an amazing perspective. I've lived here for over 22 years and the rich tapestry of the North is a marvelous privilege I enjoy everyday. I love the colors and technique used on the Autumn Colors Hidden Lake and McIntyre Marsh pictures. The mist on the Yukon River is ethereal. Yes, I'm buttering you up...but I really do love your work. Do you have a book out? I enjoy sharing and giving books of Northern pics as gifts. It gives people a visual idea of the great place I call home. I put together a newsletter that is posted on the Transport Canada Prairie and Northern Region (PNR)Diversity website, which has over 400 readers and is accessible to TC employees across Canada. This exposure has developed an appreciation for this corner of our country. May I have your permission post the 'Bohemian Waxwing on mountain ash' picture from the website on our newsletter giving credit to you and linking to your website? If this is okay, I will snd you a copy of the edition when I snd to our Communications department. Thank you for your consideration of my request.

shelly: Hello Phil, I just want to thank you. I want to call them photographs but in essence this does not truely describe what you have captured. Absolutely amazing. Regards, Shelly - Alberta, Canada
June 9, 2004 9:14AM

Byrd Stilwell: Phil, Was looking for places of interest in AK, and Canada. A friend who has been to Whitehorse told me of a DC3 that serves as weathervane(?). While searching for it I logged on to your site. Whoa! My first time ever seeing the Northern lights in such detail. Must really be something in person. Thanks a bunch. Byrd Stilwell
April 26, 2004 4:57PM

Sharon Veit: I was looking up different cities that my husband will be traveling through on a trip to Alaska and was lucky enough to notice the site of your beautiful pictures. I am a professional photographer myself....taking mostly high school senior and group portraits. But I enjoy, even more, taking scenics. Your photography is absolutely beautiful....We have the same eye for the light and shadow, etc. I have barely covered the surface on the site and will be back very soon to finish looking at it. Lovely!
April 22, 2004 12:59PM

Reg Salinas: Phil...You are to be congratulated for sharing the wonderful scenes depicted in your photo works. I had the privilege of living in Alaska 1977-1980 traveling, hiking, sking and climbing. Loved it tremendously...the Yukon as well. Your photos bring back some of the most cherished memories of my life. I am looking forward to retiring soon in Alaska, or the Yukon. Your spectacular winter scene like the "Pine Tree In White Pass" remind me vividly of how wonderful and breathtaking nature is in the Great North, and I can't wait to get back. Keep up the great work.

Liz: Your pictures absolutely blew my mind. I would love to have your talent. I live in Toronto and there are some beautiful scenes to be captured here, but seeing your photos makes me want to come to NWT for the tranquility that I do not get here. I will be back to see more soon. My favorites are the Auroras.

January 21, 2004 4:30PM

Martin Prochnik: Hi Phil- Really superb photos. Its a challenge to take scenic shots that don't resemble thousands of others of the same genre but you have managed to do it. I'm interested in some of the technical details. What cameras do you use? What kind of film do you prefer etc.? Have you experimented with digital yet? I have a special interested in old ( late 1800's to 1940's) structures, especially those associated with mining. Are there any accessible from Whitehorse? Any info you could provide would be appreciated. Martin
January 15, 2004 2:08PM

Holly Cowman: Thankyou for the time and effort it took in capturing these scenes and sharing them with us! Perhaps a few themos' of hot coffee or tea were in order for some of these winter scenes. Genesis1:1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.

October 15, 2003 8:20PM

Winthrop J. Snow, Jr.: I went to Costa Mesa Ca, on Sept. 26, for a 104th Infantry Division (originally an Oregon National guard unit) reunion, took the Amtrack "Starlighter" to Seattle because I had read Jonathan Raban's book "Passage to Juneau" (Well reviewed in the N.Y. Times). That whole area fascinating. Hope to go back and take some kind of boat up the inside passage. Why should I be interested in the area? It turns out that my great grandfather, a Captain Joshua Nickerson Rowe, home port, Rockland, Maine, took a steamer up the Yukon from Seattle on June 16 1898. On return he left Dawson City on September 20th, 1889 as Captain of the steamer James Doneville, with about 120 passengers. On October 5th his diary noted "Got within one mile of the White Horse Tramway". He died in the Bishop Rowe Hospital, Skagway, Alaska, October 18th, 1898. Services at the Union Church, and buried at a little graveyard beyond the city limits. On the 28th of September he noted "Weather cool and the Northern Lights are beautiful." We in Massachusetts are too far south in latitude to see Northern Lights. Your pictures are spectacular. I never Iimagined they were so brilliant, and such colors. Thank you.
October 5, 2003 10:29PM

Carl W: Thankyou for sharing this truly awesome collection of this celestial marvel. Churchill, Manitoba not only has polar bears but incredible northern lights as well. It may be worth investigating.
September 18, 2003 12:40PM

R F G: Excellent photos! The sky dances so well, and you have captured some of it. Thanks for sharing!
August 19, 2003 6:11PM

Brian & Andrea Simmer from Whitehorse, Yukon: Hey Phil, We totally LOVE your album and it portrays the Yukon is it naturally looks! Its so beautiful and breath taking! We ourselves are in the process of moving back to the Yukon this January because we can't imagine life anywhere else other than Gods' own back yard. Anyways, great photos and keep up the great work!
August 14, 2003 6:55AM

Larry: enjoyed your photos, makes me want to see Whitehorse in person, in summer & winter. keep up the good work

european chicks: Hi guys!! what's up. i'm an exchange-student from switzerland. right now i live in High Level, Alberta. If i had know where I was about to go, I would have never come to Canada. But after I saw your pictures I started to have faith in the beautiful spots of Canada. So me and my friend have decided to go to Whitehorse. We are going to sit in the bus for 45 hours. But we think Whitehorse is worth it. We would appreciate it if you told us some spots in Whitehorse and area we shouldn't miss. thank's anyway. you are an awesome photographer!! marina niederberger, switzerland

Donald L Reid: Hi Phil Just a quick visit to see your site. I've now done five talks on Robert W Service and have a few more lined up. However, I am busy doing talks on Dr Henry Faulds - The Scottish Pioneer of Fingerprint Science. We are endeavouring to establish an appropriate memorial to him in Beith and I am secretary of the Society. You can visit our official web site on: which is hosted for us free by the American Journal of Forensic Investigation courtesy of their editor, Alan McRoberts. All the best for now, Phil.

Deborah Hangartner: Mr. Hoffman, your work is breathtaking! I've never seen anything like it. Some photographs are so surreal they almost seem painted. Please tell us how you get such intense colors!
April 19, 2003 10:19AM

Donald L Reid: Hi Phil Been up watching for the first signs of war! Iain Shaw and I performed our lecture, Robert W Service - Poet of the Peole, last week to Fullarton Historical Society in Irvine. Went well apart from the laptop acting very strange indeed. I think that the membrane below the keys is unserviceable. This needs to be attended to as it took on a life of its own and began to fly through some of the most wonderful scenes of the Yukon!! Nice to make contact again, Phil and kindest regards from Beith, Ayrshire, Scotland. Donald Reid
March 19, 2003 6:01PM

Carol: Your photos are fabulous. I lived in the Yukon for almost a year a long time ago but I never saw anything like these. Thank you.

February 4, 2003 9:49PM

Donald L Reid: Hi Phil Just a wee note to advise that my talk on Robert W Service - The People's Poet, last week went very well. The photos you kindly allowed me to use went down a treat. The members of the Trinity Church Mens Fellowship in Beith, Ayrshire, were simply awe-struck at the magnificent scenery which made our talk about the Service's Canada really come alive. Thanks again. Still in the middle of too many Burns Suppers. Cheers Donald L Reid Secretary Barrmill Jolly Beggars Burns Club and Secretary Dr Henry Faulds - Beith Commemorative Committee

Donald L Reid: Re message below, I do not require slides, rather it would be helpful to have jpeg photos as they would be generated from the laptop to the screen via a projector. Just a wee note to clarify the situation. Cheers Donald L Reid Beith, Ayrshire, Scotland KA15 1BJ

Donald L Reid: My friend, Iain Shaw and I do a talk entitled: Robert W Service - Poet of the People. We want to develop this talk by placing typical Yukon scenery onto the screen from our laptop via a projector. This would run as we do our talk of 45 mins. Is it possible to purchase some slides which would typify the Yukon scenery and if so how do I go about this as I believe it would enhance our talk if we had the awe-inspiring scenes of the Yukon the in background as Service's poems such as The Cremation of Same McGhee and Dan McGrew were being recited. If you can help this would be greatly appreciated Donald L Reid secretary Barrmill Jolly Beggars Burns Club Beith, Ayrshire, Scotland KA15 1BJ

Shannon: Hi Phil, I am a designer working on a new restaurant soon to open in Whitehorse. Our client usually puts archival photos of each location in their entry way. Since it might be difficult to find archival photos of Whitehorse, I'm thinking of proposing the use of some of your beautiful images. How much do you charge per image? We typically do +/- 8"x10" size prints. Awesome work! Thanks, Shannon

Philipp: Absolute wonderful - I was wondering in what area Kathleen Lake is. What a great sight. I will travel to norway soon so it would be great to get some inside information about great looking sights. I know there is a lot, but you seem to have a feel for the really nice stuff. Thanks a lot. I'm writing from New York and can't wait to see some nature soon.

October 2, 2002 9:00AM

Lydia Smith: A Big Sky Hi from Montana, Thanks for the great photos. You sure were fortunate to go to Norway and experience the heartland of the Northern Lights enthusiasts, maybe it will be my turn someday! I just submitted my photo, I was lucky to get it at all, considering that I had just started to learn about my camera and was lucky to look up, see and capture the shot at all! Now I check the night sky regularly for that chance again, we don't see the bright colors here in Montana as often as you do, so it was a real treat to see them twice in one year (spring and fall)! Any way, Happy Trails, Lydia

Richard Briggs: Dear Mr. Hoffman, I am the designer for an event being held in Korea. It is a charity (fund-raising) Christmas ball sponsored by the American Women's Club of Korea. Each year this club raises quite a bit of money and donates it to Korean charities, usually shelters for battered women and orphans. Your photo of the aurora is one of the three "finalists" for the graphic design. I would like to know the following: 1) What would be the cost to use the image? - I will need a high quality glossy print, unframed - Size should be A4 (approximately) assuming that the photo on the web is full-image. If you cropped the web image significantly, then I would need a larger print to compensate. - If print is not available, then a slide would work... assuming it's a very high quality copy. 2) The photo would be used as follows: - Cover photo for program (A5 size) (Approximately 450 copies) - Background for A3-size poster (50 copies) - Background for ticket (430 copies) 3) The image in question is: - - I have attached the thumbnail to this email. 4) Please quote cost including express shipping to Seoul, Korea. Also, please indicate the processing time -- we are behind schedule and need the image right away! 5) Please indicate the credit line you would like us to include in the program and on the poster. We need to make a decision very quickly, so your prompt reply will be appreciated very much! Sincerely, Richard Briggs P.S. As this is a non-profit event for charity, we are trying to keep costs to a minimum without sacrificing the quality of the graphic materials. (On a personal note, I am donating the graphic design at no cost.) Thanks for considering this request!

Madeleine David: I had always hoped that I would see the Aurora before I died - you've enabled me to do just that and so I must thank you. I'm uncertain as to my chances of an actual viewing of the Antipodean equivalent, from the south island of Aotearoa, New Zealand. Can anybody help me please? I shall cherish you forever!

May 12, 2002 5:11AM

Pearl: Hi Phil, I've just started reading Northern Lights by Lucy Jago and I realised that I have never seen them. (I live in the South of England). Both my mother and husband saw the Northern Lights when stationed in Scotland during military service. I came to look for some pictures on the web and found yours. Unbelievable. I can understand why other guests to your site ask if they are real! Any moving pictures? Pearl
May 6, 2002 5:47AM

carolyn mccurdy: Thank you so much for the view. I hope to one day see the auroras for myself. But in the meantime your photos are just breathtaking. I wonder though, why is it that in most photos of the auroras the dominant color is green? What causes the different colors? Also, where can I find an online video presentation of the aurora borelis? Thanks again for the spectacular pictures. Carolyn McCurdy New Orleans, Louisiana C

Ralph Tucker: Beautiful work Phil. I'm planning to spend some of my retirement with my camera in the "wilds" of Ohio. Although not as exciting as some of your beautiful state, there are some interesting subjects here. The Amish counties are just south of Akron, and with their cultural ways and the beautiful farms they maintain, I shouldn't have any problems finding something to shoot. I've really enjoyed your web site and plan to revisit it frequently. Thanks for the eyefull. Good luck on finding the "perfect shot".

Pat: I was trying to explain how the northern lights looked and decided to find some photo's of the subject because words were just not enough. I was happy to find your photo's as they are as I remember in Northern Alberta, Canada. I photographed a few images at 32 below zero at 3:00 a.m. which seemed to be a very active time for the lights. Thank you for sharing your gifts.

March 2, 2002 3:20PM

Jay Sawicki: Your pictures are absolutely amazing. When they said a picture is worth a thousand words, they didn't see your pictures because they make me speechless. You definitely capture the moment and more. Your pictures belong in a museum. Keep up the great work and when is your calendar coming out, it will outsell my favorite photographer Ansel Adams.

March 2, 2002 7:04AM

John Anderson: Thanks for posting these, Phil. Once, the family did a road trip between Calgary and Saskatoon. It was one of the very few times in my life I regretted having to drive. These lights bounce and waver and with stars and the moon; possibly some clouds, they give whole new meaning to the word 'awesome'. They are so beautiful, they are beyond words. Poetry maybe.
February 28, 2002 4:53PM

Jean Bressan: Absolutely beautiful work! Are you ever the same after seeing such beauty?
February 26, 2002 4:46PM

Matt Pearsall: I just found your site through Mailshell. Do you do this for a living? That's MY dream! I hate you, I hate you! :) I love you. Could you show me how? I've stolen almost all of the images, and I'm using them in a slide show presentation to sell... Nothing. I am going to use them as the most beautiful wallpaper I have ever seen on my computer, or anywhere for that matter. I wish I could afford one of them. They make me think of the type of place I want to retire to and take pictures. :) Absolutely stunning work! I almost had a reiligous experience while seeing them! Truly inspiring! I'm quitting my job, and moving to the Yukon! Thank you for the push in the right direction! :)
February 25, 2002 9:04AM

Sandra Goldstein: Thank you so much for sharing your pictures with the rest of us. The Northen Lights have allways been a mistery to me and thanks to you I can now say I have "seen" them. Someday I hope to say I "was there". Thanks again.

Thank you for sharing.

Melody Olaker: Thanks for sharing some of your photos with someone like me that will probably never get to see the real thing. Beautiful pictures! I admire your talent of photographing nature, and I'm sure part of the reward is the opportunity to observe these yourself. Roll on.

Kim: I lived in Canada for 7 years. I had almost forgotten some of the beautiful sights and wonder available. The aurora being the main one. If there were anything I could share with my hubby and kids, that is what it would be. More magic. Thank you for your pictures. They really brought back memories.

Marilyn Homer: Mr Hoffman, I am planning a trip to Alaska in 2003, sometime in September. Hopefully I will get to see the Aurora Borealis at some time while visiting. I have a Nikon N70 camera, what lense would you suggest I have and film for taking pictures of the lights? Also, where should I go for best viewing. I will be flying into Anchorage and have 10 days. Thanks, Marilyn
