2020 Bald Eagle Workshop
November 15-22, 2020
Join this true bucket list photography adventure! For those interested in learning about and photographing Bald Eagles, I will again be offering my sellout 7 night/8 day workshop the week before Thanksgiving 2020 in Haines Alaska. Haines offers the most productive Bald Eagle shooting in the world, and I will put you and your camera in front of thousands of Eagles. During our week together, you will have the chance to learn and grow as an artist as we shoot and critique photos daily. Depending on conditions we may also make a trip into the Yukon for landscape photography as well.
This small group trip of no more than 5 participants means you have a front row seat to all the action, as well as well as lots of personal attention from me. Each night after busy day of shooting we will have an image review session and lecture on camera technique and eagle behavior in our private meeting room. With such a small group everyone will get a chance to ask questions and improve their photography both in the field and during our evening sessions. While other tour operators may offer slightly lower prices there is a big difference in quality between their often shorter length trips and larger groups where clients get less feedback from the instructor. Often these lower priced trips forgo the evening sessions entirely choosing to end the day after dinner. There is also a big difference between a workshop leader who is there to shoot their own photos and one who is there to teach their clients. We have all watched workshop leaders ignore their clients or even step in front of them in order to "get the shot". My goal as a workshop leader is that you "get the shot", my "getting the shot" comes secondary to the needs of my clients. My smaller group trips allow me to spend more time with each client both in the field and during our evening sessions in order to help you grow faster as an artist and come home with better images.
This location is so good I regularly sell Haines eagle images to National Geographic for their Eagle calendars. The only problem will be choosing which of your shots you like the best from the thousands of up close and personal images you make during the trip. For those interested, the trip runs November 15-22, 2020 in the town of Haines Alaska. Typically, participants fly into Juneau and then take the ferry or a puddle jumper flight into Haines to meet the group on the 15th.
The cost of the trip is $4,000 which includes seven nights at a hotel (all singles with kitchenettes), all ground transportation in Haines, and all photo guiding/image reviews. (Meals are not included, but we do often eat dinner as a group). Due to its small size, this trip tends to sell out, so email me directly if you want to find out more information.
