My signature trip. There is nothing else like it. In Alaska I dedicate myself to giving you a photo experience that is totally unforgettable and unique in photography. These trips fill up fast and years ahead, often with the many returning clients of mine who want this experience, so signing up for my mailing list is a great way to find out if any spots become available!
In preparation of your joining me here on these trips, I have spent hundreds of hours reviewing maps and satellite images of fifty thousand square miles of these spectacular peaks and completed 11 previous expeditions here.
I have done more than 400 hours in helicopters scouting terrain from the air, finding countless gems along the way. I’ve done 35 days of solo trekking continuously from one side of these mighty ranges to the other and seen miles-long crystal clear ice caves, wildflower gardens, glacial rivers that stretch for dozens of miles and waterfalls so abundant they have no equal anywhere. This is NOT the cruise-ship Alaska. This is the REAL Alaska, that last frontier that will provide you with a sense of wild adventure beyond compare.
Imagine starting your day exploring by kayak among icebergs or inside a miles-long network or blue ice caves and then shooting spectacular wildflower meadows near the same campsite at sunset, days from any other person! We stop at nothing to get you to the most spectacular areas in all of Alaska and give you a window seat for all of it, utilizing up to three helicopters at one time, two boats and two planes all for this one trip! We make up to 6 different backcountry camps in the most incredible places you can dream up, sometimes in coastal rainforest and sometimes on top of a mountain ridge in the middle of an ice field at 7000ft! It's all action on these trips once we lift off, and I can't wait to show you more.
This trip is inclusive of all outfitting and wilderness equipment as needed, all transportation, several hours of time in helicopter aerial shooting/transit, most meals, dedicated and continuous instruction throughout and dozens of post-production videos yours to keep.
Hiking and Physical Requirements:
This trip is rated moderate in difficulty and is suitable for people of most ages and ability levels who are in good physical health.
The Alaskan wilderness can be a very rugged environment which may require some athleticism on the part of participants at times, or in select areas when positioning yourself to shoot. All participants will need to be able to carry up to their regular camera gear, clothing, snacks, etc. over rough terrain for short distances for up to 1 hour at a time. Outside of this basic requirement, participants looking for additional hiking options will have the opportunity to do select hikes from our base-camps rated at difficulty levels 1-3, with 3 being most advanced.
I do not feel the difficulty of this trip is terribly high, but all should be prepared for some slippery/steep terrain over short distances as we make our way into shoot blue ice caves, glaciers and waterfall/cascades.
We will meet in Juneau, Alaska at 5pm for trip overview and discussion over dinner the first day. Juneau and all hotels in town are widely accessible via direct flights from many major airports in the US and is easy to reach. This is our first home base this trip, along with Petersburg, later in the trip and even Yakutat on certain years. Once at base, we're off in the helicopters, bush planes or boats as soon as we get the all clear on the weather! We work with many terrific locals who know the area well and help us will all our transportation needs throughout.
