Juniors Featured Photographer –

Bob Eastaugh

Bob Eastaugh has photographed the ski club’s junior and FIS races for more than ten years. He will photograph some of the club’s races in 2023-24 on a reduced schedule, given the time and effort required to be on the hill and process thousands of digital files. 

His photos have publicized the sport, the racers, and the club. They have been published in the Anchorage Daily News, Ski Racing Magazine (Media), the News-Miner, the Empire, the Race Place Catalogue (cover), and elsewhere. He has worked with the club in various capacities for more than 50 years.

This link to his Zenfolio website takes you to the ski season group that will contain galleries for the 2023-24 races: https://bobeastaughimagery.zenfolio.com/f1008655119 Viewers can see his race photos from each season without charge. He donates any race photo sales proceeds to the Alyeska Ski Club’s Juniors program.
