Follow My Journey

Kent Gunnufson Author Interview

Rocky Mountains: A Self-Portrait is a biography about your life as a photographer as well as teaching readers some of the nuances of photography that make a great photographer. Why was this an important book for you to write?

This book is an overview of my interests and creative efforts in the high Rockies. It offers a look into a short lived community that no longer exists which I feel strongly needs to be acknowledged and documented for others to see.

I appreciated the candid nature with which you told your story. What was the hardest thing for you to write about?

I am a photographer, not a natural writer. But with a lot of effort and persistence I feel I have presented an interesting story and insights not previously available about the lives of those living and working at the Colorado ski resorts.

What is one piece of advice you wish someone had given you when you were younger?

I’ve always been told I can achieve whatever I want to do. I wish I had truly believed that and acted on that earlier in life.

What do you hope is one thing readers take away from your story?

I want readers to follow my journey and see what I saw while experiencing life in a community that no longer exists.

Kent Gunnufson worked the construction trades in the harsh, cold mountain environment in order to ski and pursue alpine photography. Not only does he offer an inside look at the ski community’s little known “golden era”, but also takes us on his personal journey to master the dramatic B&W landscape. Quotes from the photographic community reinforce and clarify the creative path of the author.
