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 images and fantastic experiences!

APA tours are the ONLY tours that have ALL these great benefits:

1) The ONLY multi-day photography tours based on the wildlife-rich Kenai Peninsula (where the other others come to visit)
2) Small groups only (2-6 people) to give you all the personal attention you may want
3) Flexibility to spend max time with animals when the light is great and the action is happening
4) Bear-salmon hotspots like Brooks Falls, Katmai & Lake Clark Nat’l Parks!
5) Led by pro photographers, former rangers and long-time Alaskan guides

Something to think about: 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, and high salaries of company executives, celebrity tour guides, etc. None of that translates to YOUR experiences or great images.

Mile for mile, Dollar for Dollar, Megabyte for Megabyte

Compared to any other Alaskan photo tour, trek or safari — you’ll have a better experience, get more photos and more personal attention for the SAME or LESS cost.

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 us! 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 each activity 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.
• 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!

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

Let us handle the logistics.

There are a ton of decisions to coordinate (planes, bear camps, seasonal wildlife variations, best places to go at certain times, safety, overpriced lodges and services that gouge tourists, etc).

We’ve been doing this for a long time. We’ll get you to the best spots for the best price and make your trip seamless.

Your valuable time here will be worth every penny.

Trust your gut and come with us.
