Our 2020 Alaska bears & landscape photo adventure is taking us to a brand-new Alaskan destination. Jay has already declared that Alaska is one of the 10 BEST photo destinations he would return to.
On this ultimate photo adventure we will be searching for Alaskan brown bears fishing at water’s edge during the peaking late summer salmon runs. Our solitary goal is to have you returning home with hundreds of photos of bears running through glaciated waters after fish. In addition to tight portraits of crimson salmon headed into the bellies of the bear eco-system of life.
Our accommodations are nestled on a glacier-fed lake beneath the massive volcanic Chigmit Mountains mountains with clear views of Mount Redoubt mere miles aways.
If three days of bear photography isn’t enough, we are also planning on sending you home with some dramatic mountain landscapes too.
This photographic adventure is only being offered to 5 people!
