Mike Kenney

….Hi Boys and Girls, When we think of the Iditarod, we think of dogs and mushers. Did you know that there are ….many other people who work very hard to make the Iditarod successful? These people help get things ready,   ….work at the start and restart, work the checkpoints, get the banquets ready for everyone to enjoy, and very ….importantly, there’s people who make sure you get stories and pictures of all the events and from the trail. One of ….the most popular things that fans look for are pictures. A good picture will help you feel like you are there.

….Meet Mike Kenney. Mike is an accomplished Photographer. His photos have been published in numerous ….magazines, calendars, and postcards all over the world. This will be Mike’s 6th year shooting photographs for the ….Iditarod. He is a lifelong fan of the race and saw his first Iditarod in 1999. Mike lives in the small town of Miller, ….South Dakota with his wife Michelle. He is the father of 17 year old twins Ty and Tayor and stepfather to 16 year ….old Eric, 14 year old Abby and 10 year old Adam. The photo of Mike was taken by Photographer Casey ….Thompson. It was taken last year in the village of Nenana, which was the first checkpoint of the race. It was 30 ….below when the picture was taken. Can you tell it was very cold by looking at the picture? I am very excited to share some of Mike’s pictures with you this year. Come back often and take a look.

.See you soon,
