We’re expanding!

Not the size of the business or number of employees. Or the number of our vehicles or buildings. But the hearts and perspectives of visitors every day.

When a grizzly bear cub looks directly at you (and then keeps playing), or a huge bull moose walks by you in the wild, it’s hard to keep it in. You feel trusted and honored, and can’t help but share the moment by taking some great shots, and perhaps a silent or verbal, “WOW”!

Then you get to share your photos with friends, family and those you want to inspire.

It feels like you’re part of a bigger circle now, that you’ve expanded your family, filled your memory cards, and added to your lifelong memory bank. Congratulations, you’ve connected some important dots in your life!

Come join our energy, our commitment to you, and our unforgettable experiences!

 The BEST value of ANY Alaska wildlife photo trek, tour or workshop

Our premium photo tours help serious amateur, semi-pro and pro photographers get the experiences and images of their lives. Formed by photographers, rangers and tour guides, our photo treks have all the vital ingredients:

1) The ONLY multi-day photography tours based in the midst of the wildlife-rich Kenai Peninsula (not Anchorage),

2) Small groups only to give you any or all the personal attention you want,

3) Flexibility to adjust and spend maximum field time with the animals when the light is great and the scenery superb!

4) By not shooting for our own portfolios, we help you get the best shots for your portfolios during your short time here.

Compare us to any other Alaskan photo tour, trek or workshop. Our exclusive central location and low overhead means your money simply goes directly to more time in the field to photograph and enjoy. (With the larger corporate or international tour companies, a huge percentage of your cost pays for high executive and celebrity tour guide salaries, expensive TV ads and promotions, high-end luxury accommodations, and repeated commuting to and from Anchorage).

Mile for mile, dollar for dollar, megabyte for megabyte, you’ll get more time, more photo opps, more local knowledge and insights, and more ​hands on (or hands off!) attention for less than any other Alaska tours of similar length.

Three Common Questions:

1) Why not just take a photo trek geared to the general public that sees wildlife?
If you love nature and wildlife photography, you won’t get the time you want on “snapshot excursions”. Their agenda is more oriented to distance and checklists, rather than time working the scene or getting great images. They’ll keep you moving on to the next scene regardless of golden light, long-lasting animal interactions or great photo opps.
2) Do “photo treks” cost more?
The short answer is No — compare “apples to apples”. Our tours cost less than if you book each activity yourself, with transportation, lodging, meals, flights & other fees.
And they cost less than the other Alaska photo tours for the same locations and time frames. That’s because of 2 reasons:
• Low overhead. You’re not paying for a large or prestigious corporate structure with marketing departments, CEOs, tours in other states or countries, or inflated salaries. It’s just us – a family company with 40 years of Alaska living, professional photography experience, top notch guides and bucket-list activities for you.
• Bulk discounts from operators we’ve known personally for years. Plus we know what tours are padding their operations more than they need to. Rather than paying for over-the-top luxury or repeated commutes back to Anchorage, you’ll have more field time to shoot Alaskan wildlife, gorgeous landscapes and stunning aerials.
3) Why pay for a guided trip when I know what I want and how to photograph?
Often, the knowledge of a local guide can be more important than photo knowledge. This can make the difference between GREAT shots vs NO shots during your short visit. Timing, alternate routes, light quality and angles, animal habits, hazards, terrain, etc. We give you tips on Alaska, animals and photography from decades of living and shooting here.
As internationally published photographers, we love helping folks make the most out of their photo opportunities. We’ve also helped fix broken or drenched cameras, loaned out lenses or SIM cards in the field, and helped with all kinds of other wilderness and personal issues when the unexpected happens.
Years from now, what will matter most to you is getting the shots you want, rather than booking with a famous company or “celebrity” photographer.
