We had a terrific time with Ron and the animals. Couldn't ask for a more enjoyable tour... extremely knowledgeable about Alaska wildlife and history. We saw bears and moose (with calves!!) right in front of us, and we could shoot as long as we wanted. Highly recommended!

3 Common Questions
1) What’s the difference between your photo tours versus the others?
Main difference: You get more time at the wildlife hotspots.  Most tours cover larger distances in shorter time, rather than giving you more time and freedom to work a scene. They keep moving on to the “next” shot.
2) Does a wildlife photo tour in Alaska cost more?
Not with us. Compare apples to apples — ground, air & boat transport, lodging, time with animals, all meals, etc. You pay less with us than other photo tours or if you booked the activities  yourself. How can we do that?
• Low overhead. No large, corporate structures, expensive TV ads, inflated salaries. A 40-year Alaska family business with “sourdough” experience and great community connections.
• Bulk discounts from trusted operators we’ve known for years. You can’t get these as a solo tourist.
• No daily commutes back & forth to Anchorage, giving you more time with wildlife at the PREMIUM hot spots like Brooks Falls, Katmai, Lake Clark, Kenai Nat’l Wildlife Refuge, Kenai Fjords, etc.
3) Why pay for a guide when I know what I want and how to photograph?
An experienced photo guide can make THE difference between getting great shots vs NO shots. 
Alaska is a big, wild place. You need more than a good camera to get great shots, like knowing local bear/animal patterns & locations, weather, Murphy’s Law, alternate options, etc. We’ve fixed broken/drenched cameras and tons of other field issues when the unexpected happens. We have comfortable vans, extra equipment, tripods, etc. and 40 years of Alaskan experience.


"Ron knows photography and has the ability to communicate eloquently and put people at ease”

Alaska is huge. Travel can get complicated here. Your time is limited.

We’ll make your experience here, safe, comfortable and worth every penny.
