Photograph Brown Bears from up-close in a stunning natural setting during this exclusive bear photography workshop. The workshop is based in Alaska’s Lake Clark National Park, an incredibly remote and stunning area, and a thriving bear population. Since the bears here have never been hunted and have become habituated to people, it presents incredible and unique photographic opportunities.
Lake Clark National Park is a pristine setting. With its tundra-covered hills, glaciers, volcanoes, major rivers, and stunning coastline, the area featured a spectacular array of landscapes. The park is home to a large population of coastal brown bears, drawn here by the wealth of foraging and fishing opportunities.
This trip will be an immersion in brown bear photography: we will spend our days in the park photographing bears in a wide range of behaviors and habitats. The bears are protected and have never been hunted, which allows us to come unusually close to them. Expect to take the best bear photography of your life! And due to the nature of the setting, there will also be plenty of opportunities for incredible landscape photography.
For the duration of the trip we will stay in a comfortable lodge located in the midst of this habitat. In fact, brown bears are common visitors to the lodge and property and can be found on any given day grazing, resting, or playing in the front yard. To reach this idyllic destination we will fly in on a small aircraft from Anchorage, landing on a beach in front of the lodge. If the weather is good, we can see Mount ReDoubt, Mount Augustine, and Mount Illiamna, all active volcanoes, on the flight in.
Throughout this bear photography workshop, you’ll be guided by Barrett Hedges, an award-winning photographer with a wealth of knowledge on bears and Lake Clark. You’ll be sure to sharpen your photography skills, have a wonderful wilderness adventure, and go home with an impressive portfolio of images.
