Brown Bears of Alaska

August 2-9, 2022  SOLD OUT

 Summer 2024 date is in the works and will sell out. Contact me to be added to the interest list.

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 eight 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 includes all lodging, meals, and guiding for the entire trip. The trip will start in Homer Alaska on the afternoon of Aug 2nd, where we will settle into our private boat for the night before it sails with the outgoing tide. We will arrive back in Homer on afternoon of August 9th. 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 eight photographers that will change the way you look at bear photos for the rest of your life.

Trip begins and ends in Homer Alaska, participants are responsible for all transportation to/from Homer and any lodging or meals needed before/after the trip. Everything once on board our private boat is included.
