ALASKA EAGLE

Alaska Photo Tour / Workshop

Experience Eagles and Stunning Alaskan Beauty

Once nearly extinct, this magnificent raptor rules the skies in the wilds of Alaska. Clearly one of the most recognizable birds in the United States – the bald eagle has become a symbol of lasting freedom.  The coastal waters of Alaska provide a rich and abundant feeding ground for these skilled aerialists.  Hundreds of eagles every day pierce the sky and plummet to the water’s surface below grasping their prey with razor-sharp talons. 

 

 

 

 

 

Ever watchful, the intentioned gaze of these creatures penetrates past flesh and bone to the very heart – to the place inside where wonder and awe still reside.

This photo tour is the opportunity of a lifetime, photographing eagles in flight, perching,  fishing, striking their prey on the waters surface.  If you’ve ever longed to capture images that convey the essence of freedom in the wilds of Alaska – the kind of images you would be proud to print and display in your home or local art gallery – then this is the trip for you.

Alaska photo tour is limited to only 5 participants, you will receive as much guidance as you find necessary to capture at least 15,000 – 20,000 images during this workshop.
