The Midwest Sled Dog Symposium is ​pleased to announce our 2015 keynote speaker 

Jeff Schultz

​Jeff Schultz, Official photographer of the Iditarod is planned to give the keynote presentation at the Midwest Sled Dog Symposium in Curtis, Michigan September 25-27th, 2015. During this two-hour presentation on Saturday evening the 26th, Jeff will be sharing several hundred images of mushing photos during 3 segments. During the first segment, Jeff will be sharing the “back-stories” to many of his best photos from his new book “Chasing Dogs—My Adventures as the Official Photographer of Alaska’s Iditarod”. He will also share hundreds of new images from the last couple years of Iditarod races (that are not in the book) in a fast-paced slide show, set to music, which takes the viewer from back-stage, pre-race activities, to the Anchorage start and along the entire trail to the finish in Nome. The third segment will be a show of images and talk from his experience as the official photographer of the 2014 Volga Quest sled dog race in Russia.
