“Getting great shots isn’t luck, it’s a decision” — Ron Levy, APA Director

Alaska Photo Adventures offers the ONLY tours that give you ALL these great benefits:


1) The ONLY multi-day photo tours based on the wildlife-rich Kenai Peninsula (where other tours only visit)

2) Small groups only (2-8) – giving you more time & personal attention, whether you’re a beginner or a pro shooter

3) Flexibility to spend max time with animals when the light is great and the action is happening

4) Famous Alaska bear-salmon hotspots like Brooks Falls, Katmai, Lake Clark Nat’l Parks & the Kenai Peninsula!

5) Led by pro photographers, former national park rangers and 40-year experienced Alaskan guides

And consider this: If you book a tour with one of the large corporate or international companies, a huge portion of your money pays for expensive TV and magazine ads, high salaries of company executives, celebrity tour guides, etc. None of that gives you more time in the field, guarantees you personal attention or great images.


Mile for mile, Dollar for Dollar, Megabyte for Megabyte

Compared to any other Alaska photo tour, trek or safari — you’ll get more face time with animals, and more personal attention for the SAME or LESS cost.

We’ll take care of you and make your trip seamless the minute you get here.

(you’ll have the shots to prove it).

Mindset is everything

Unlike crowded, snapshot tours, we have 2 priorities:

1) Integration — We match our actions to fit the rhythms of the animals and earn their trust

2) Respect  — We respect the land, and show the same respect to you

Trust and patience lead to great photos and fantastic experiences.

3 Great Questions

1) Why not just take a photo tour geared to the general public?

You won’t get the time you need on “snapshot excursions”.  Their agenda typically covers large distances and checklists, rather than giving you time to work a scene. They’ll keep moving on to the next shot regardless of golden light, great animal interactions or photo opps.

2) Does a “photo” trek or safari cost more?

Not with us, Compare apples to apples on all-inclusive tours — transportation, lodging, meals, flights, and, most importantly — the actual time you get with the animals. You’ll pay less with us than other tours or if you tried to book all the activities and transportation yourself.
How can we do that?
• Low overhead / family business. You’re not paying for large, corporate structures, expensive TV ads, marketing departments, inflated salaries, etc. It’s just us — a family company with 40 years of Alaska experience, integrity and community relationships giving you a fantastic, unforgettable tour!
• Bulk discounts from trusted operators we’ve known for years. You can’t get these as a tourist. Alaska Photo Adventures has built up trusted connections for many years.
• No repeated commutes back and forth to Anchorage, giving you more time at the premium wildlife spots to shoot bears with fish, big mammals, aerials, puffins, fjords, etc.

3) Why pay for a guide when I know what I want and how to photograph?

Alaska is a big, wild place. There are a lot more logistics to getting great shots in a short amount of time than just clicking the shutter.  The knowledge and connections of a local guide can be more important than photo knowledge. This can make the difference between great shots vs NO shots.
Knowing who to go with, who’s charging more than they should, bear behavior, weather, terrain, alternate routes, Murphy’s Law, first aid — these only come from decades of living here. We’ve fixed broken or drenched cameras, pulled float planes off submerged rocks, and dealth with countless other field issues when the unexpected happens. There’s a lot ” behind the scenes” that you won’t even notice while you’re clicking away.

We have lots of returning visitors…

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

Alaska is huge. Travel can get complicated here, and your time is limited.

Let us handle all the logistics.

There are a ton of decisions to coordinate — charter flights, bear camps, weather and seasonal wildlife variations, best places to go at certain times, overpriced lodges, and lots of other services that gouge tourists

We’ve been doing this for a long time. We’ll get you to the best spots for the best price seamlessly.     Your camera will thank you.

Your valuable time here will be worth every penny.
