Mindset is everything

Unlike crowded, snapshot tours, we have two 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 an an outstanding Alaska experience!

Led by pro photographers, former rangers and long-time Alaskan guides, our tours are the ONLY tours that have ALL of these vital benefits:

1) The ONLY multi-day photography tours based on the wildlife-rich Kenai Peninsula (you’re in the midst of it all day and night)

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) Daytrips to world famous bear-salmon hotspots like Brooks Falls, Katmai & Lake Clark Nat’l Parks!

Think about this: if you book a tour with one of the large corporate or international companies, a huge portion of your money pays for their expensive TV and magazine ads, 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:

Compare us to any other Alaskan photo tour or trek or safari. You’ll get a better experience, more photos and more personal attention for the SAME or LESS money.

3 Great Questions

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

If you love photography, you won’t get the time you need on “snapshot excursions”.  Their agenda is more oriented to covering large distances and checklists, rather than giving the time to work a scene. They’ll keep moving on to the next scene regardless of golden light, great animal interactions or photo opps.

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

The short answer is “not with us”. Compare apples to apples. Our tours cost less than if you book each activity yourself, including transportation, lodging, meals, flights & other fees. And, when you add in all the hidden costs (exorbitant rental car prices or transport over hundreds of miles, park fees, cabs, meals at the “wrong” places, rooms at the “wrong” hotels, etc.) — APA tours often cost less than other Alaska photo tours going to the same locations!
How can we do that?
• Low overhead / family business. You’re not paying for large, corporate structures and overhead, or to cover expensive TV ads, marketing departments, inflated salaries, or tours in other states/countries. It’s just us – a family company with 40 years of Alaska experience, integrity and top credentials. More important than booking with a large, famous company or a “celebrity” photographer is for you to have a fantastic, unforgettable tour and get the photos of your life!
•  Bulk discounts from operators we’ve known for years. Rather than paying for excessive luxury or repeated commutes back to Anchorage, you’ll have more time & flexibility at premium, Alaskan wildlife spots to photograph classic scenes — bears with fish, big mammals on land and sea, aerials, puffins, fjords, etc.

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

There are a lot more logistics to getting great shots in a short amount of time than just clicking the shutter. Alaska is a big, wild place. 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.
Timing, animal habits, weather, terrain, alternate routes, Murphy’s Law, first aid — these only come from decades of living here. We’ve helped fix broken or drenched cameras, loaned out lenses or SIM cards in the field, and all kinds of other issues when the unexpected happens. You’ll get tons of tips on Alaska, animals and photography (see the free tips on this site). 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 choices and things 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.
