Welcome to the brand new Alaskero Pictures website, complete with its own domain name even! I figured this would be a more legitimate way to get ourselves out there and a whole lot simpler than telling people to check us out on Facebook/YouTube/Vimeo/etc. It may not be the flashiest site, but at least we've got it where it counts: content, and I'll do my best to keep coming up with new content on a regular basis. In the meantime, I'll be updating the blog backlog with news already on our Facebook page in case any new inquiring minds visit the site. Thanks for visiting, and be sure to tell your friends!
