    In January and February of 2015, I had the pleasure of working with reporter Jessica Gruenling on a three-part series profiling the Seavey's in Alaska. A family of dog mushers, the Seavey name has become synonymous with sled dogs and the Iditarod. Dan Seavey, the family's patriarch, was involved in the first ever Iditarod race. At the time of the interviews, Dan's son Mitch and grandson Dallas were both two-time Iditarod champions. They are both competing yet again this year. Running the Iditarod at age eighteen is said to be the unspoken Seavey graduation. After completing Jessica's series on the Seavey's, which chronicled their story from a journalistic standpoint, I was still in love with a lot of the footage and interviews that I had shot over our time with the Seavey family. Their attitudes, not only towards dog mushing but life in general, resonated with me and I wanted to attempt to capture that in a style that I was used to -- more cinematic than journalistic. I shot all video for this piece on a Canon 60D. The legwork for the interviews was done by Jessica Gruenling. She also interviewed Conway Seavey, who was featured in her series.

        • Mitch Seavey: '(Dallas)' has it sewn up'

          Mitch Seavey in Elim said he's been frustrated by questions about the competition between the former champion and his son, 2012 Iditarod frontrunner Dallas. In a way, it's a heartbreak, Seavey said, because he's been racing to win but would normally be on the sidelines cheering for his son. "He's got it sewn up if he does what he knows how to do, and that's run dogs," Seavey says. Kyle Hopkins / Anchorage Daily News
