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 (2-6) – 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 resident Alaskan guides
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 or guarantees you personal attention or great images.
Mile for mile, Dollar for Dollar, Megabyte for Megabyte
Compared to any other Alaskan photo tour, trek or safari — you’ll get more face time with the animals, get more “keeper” shots and more personal attention for the SAME or LESS costwith Alaska Photo Adventures.

Mindset is everything
Unlike crowded, snapshot tours, Alaska Photo Adventures has 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 Alaska 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 is more focused on covering large distances and checklists, rather than giving you the 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 Alaska Photo Adventures! Compare apples to apples on all-inclusive tours — transportation, lodging, meals, flights, and the actual time you get with the animals.You 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 so you can get the photos of your life!
• 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 way more than they should, bear behavior, animal habits, weather, terrain, alternate routes, Murphy’s Law, first aid — these only come from decades of living here. We’ve fixed broken or drenched cameras, loaned out lenses or SIM cards, and all kinds of issues when the unexpected happens. You’ll get tons of tips on Alaska, animals and photography. And by the way, we’re eager to hear about your experiences!
We have lots of returning visitors…

We’ve been doing this for a long time. We’ll get you to the best spots for the best price seamlessly.
Your valuable time here will be worth every penny.
