2022 Brown Bears of Alaska
July 24-31st, 2022 Sold Out!
July 31-Aug 6th, 2022
Come join me for an unforgettable week photographing the famed Alaskan Brown Bears along the Katmai coast. This week long charter boat based workshop will begin and end in Homer Alaska. Our group of only seven photographers will eat and sleep aboard our private boat, but spend each day in different locations along the shores of Katmai National Park photographing bears as they feed on salmon, sedge grasses, and clams. We will see young cubs and their mothers as well as big males as we explore each day.
Our bear guide Drew is one of the foremost bear guides in the world. When nature documentary film makers need to hire a guide he is the guy they call. Plus has helped to spear head the fight to protect Katmai and Lake Clark National Parks from the proposed Pebble Mine.
The trip costs $9000 and includes all lodging, meals, flight, and guiding for the entire trip. Week one trip will start in Homer Alaska on the evening of July 24th, where we will settle into our private boat for the night before it sails with the outgoing tide. Week two passengers will meet in Homer on July 31st to fly out and meet our boat on location along the Katmai coast. Week one passengers switch out and fly back Homer on July 31st with the returning flight. Week two passengers will then sail back to Homer late on August 6th. The rest of our time will be devoted to as much bear photography as you can handle. The bears and the sun get up early and stay out late. It isn't uncommon to be shooting bears well after dinner till 10pm or later. Got to love those long Alaskan days in the summer!
This is truly a bucket list adventure limited to seven photographers that will change the way you look at bear photos for the rest of your life. The first week sold out quickly and the second week will do the same, so please contact me directly if you have any questions.
Both weeks begin and end in Homer Alaska, participants are responsible for all transportation to/from Homer and any lodging or meals needed before/after the trip. Everything is included once aboard our private boat.
