Alaskan Eagles - November 18-22 2019

 

There are a lot of workshops out there that which head to Alaska to bait Bald Eagles to come in close for great portraits and flight shots. This is not one of those. We are headed to the world’s largest concentration of Bald Eagles where all the eagles will be feeding on a natural food source and engaging in natural behaviors. With this high density of eagles and stunning landscapes, we will have opportunities for amazing action photos as well as beautiful environmental shots. In addition to the thousands of eagles, we will also be able to photograph Trumpeter Swans, Dall Sheep and other cooperative wildlife and landscape subjects.

Itinerary

  • Day 0 – Arrive at Haines, AK. NPS will provide transportation from the ferry to where we are staying.
  • Day 1 – During our Alaskan workshop we’ll keep a flexible schedule. Since we’ll be operating in a relatively small area and will always have one vehicle scouting for the best situations, we’ll be able to adapt to the light, weather, and conditions. We’ll put you in the best situations where the eagles are most active and be sure to take advantage of any opportunities that come up. Sometimes we will depart from the typical eagle feeding areas to head to locations that offer great environmental opportunities or other wildlife.

Logistics

For the duration of the workshop NPS provides all transportation in comfortable SUV’s or minivans. Food planning is carefully considered so breakfasts, lunches, and dinners are at our fingertips for every meal. Accommodations at hotels are also pre-arranged, often at a discounted group rate, so the whole group stays at the same location. There is of course a customized approach to planning every trip, so 60 days prior we send preparation materials including a gear & packing list, as well as comprehensive logistical details unique to every trip. With this approach we ensure that shooting, learning, and maximizing your opportunity to soak in the natural beauty of our destination is your only concern.
