Alaska Katmai Bears July 11-16 2021

Alaska Brown Bears fishing Photography Workshop in incredible wilderness landscapes with Jess Lee

July 11-16

Photographing fishing Grizzly bears in Alaska is the ultimate wildlife photography experience for many photographers . If you share the dream of capturing images of these huge coastal bears fishing in pristine streams, with beautiful landscape backgrounds this trip will satisfy your goals and more. Iconic photos of bears chasing and catching salmon don't come easy, salmon runs are variable in timing and intensity making getting the best images difficult at best as bears move from location to location as the spawning run dictate. This workshop solves that problem.

From our private lodge deep in the heart of Alaska's premier wilderness on the shore of Lake Iliamna nestled between Katmai, Mc Neil River and Lake Clark where we will fly out each day to a different location to photograph peak of the bear fishing action. We will safely photograph Brown Bears activity fishing for salmon in the most productive locations in th world. You will be in awe of the opportunities provided in this trip. Also there will be bears conducting the rae behaviour of digging and feeding on clams. With many decades and hundreds of trips to photograph Grizzlies I can say this is the best chance to capture the primer action of Brown Bears fishing for salmon from a bears eye view. In addition we will also have an opportunity to photograph a huge remote and seldom visited walrus colony.

Our lodge offers a truly comfortable Alaska experience from the wonderful meals to the awesome view of the scenic location. You can enjoy the view or just relax in front of the fireplace reliving the days experiences and planning for tomorrows adventure. Lodge bedrooms or lovely cedar paneled cabins, each with a private bath makes for a great place to rest after an fulfilling day with the bears.
