Bio: After a career as a photojournalist Rob became interested in writing and enlisted to work as both a photographer and reporter/editor.
Stapleton was invited on the 1979 Redington Butcher Expedition. This expedition was to take a team of sled dogs to the 20,320-foot summit of Denali. Led by the dog team, Joe Redington, Susan Butcher, Guide Ray Genet, Brian Okonek and Stapleton as the expedition photographer, he documented the first and only successful dog team to make the summit of Denali. Currently, Rob shoots photographic assignments and writes photography instructions as an aviation photographer for Alaskafoto a company co-owned by he and his wife.
