David Jensen, author and owner of Pet-ography, will present “Paws along the Trail,” describing his love for animals and how those relationships have contributed to his writing projects.
Jensen is a third-generation Alaskan, born in Fairbanks. His family moved to Anchorage in 1963 just before the Great Alaska Earthquake. David graduated from the University of Alaska Anchorage in 1989 with a degree in Journalism and Public Communications. That same year, he created Alaska Pet-ography, his home-based business specializing in portraits of animal companions and their people.
In 2013, David published his first book, It’s Important to Paws, Lessons learned from Animal Companions. This coffee-table book is a collection of writings and hundreds of portraits featuring dogs, cats, horses, and many other beautiful companions. The book received the 2014 Independent Publisher’s National Gold Medal award in the category of animals and pets. His second book, When Age has no Leash, Lessons Learned from Senior Dogs, was published in 2014. Jensen just introduced two additional books: Paws on the Trail, Hiking with Layla and Friends in Alaska and Puppy Me with Love.
