A rare glimpse at the guy behind the camera, Scott Becker the wilderness photographer whose work has been described as amazing. Photographed here as he enjoys a cigar while salmon fishing in the Alaska wilderness and in his Cub Airplane.  He claims all he ever does is work, and spends all of his time taking photos.
