Alaska Brown Bear Workshop September 2024
Your Adventure Awaits
This is by far one of my favorite wildlife photography adventures. Alaska is a beautiful a very photogenic place, my heart races with excitement when I see these amazing Grizzly bears roaming through their natural habitat. To get so close and personal with these amazing animals and to have the opportunity to photograph them in this wonderful environment is a true blessing. On this Alaskan photography workshop we will cover all kinds of photographic topics, however, we will concentrate on how to get the best images of these spectacular Alaskan Brown Bears.

The Lodge is located within the great expanse of Lake Clark National Park on the coast of Cook Inlet. This is a full service, family owned lodge that offers the finest amenities for your Alaskan adventure. The lodge has a comfortable lounge room for sharing stories and photos, reading or just relaxing. Our dining room and large outdoor deck provides panoramic views of Cook Inlet while serving the freshest Alaskan cuisine.
The bonfire pit on the lawn near the lodge is another popular gathering place to socialize in the evening under the northern night sky around a roaring fire before retiring to the privacy of your room.
Each guest cabin and lodge room is unique, modern, spacious and very comfortable with a combination of queen and twin beds, full baths, sitting areas, individual heat sources, and electricity.
Fully furnished cabins have one, two or three bedrooms and all have private decks with views of the tidal flats and Cook Inlet.
Satellite internet is available in the main lodge and you are welcome to bring your own laptop or tablet. There is also a computer for general use in the lodge. Laundry services are available.
After a full day in the Alaskan wilderness, we want you to relax, feel at home and enjoy a restful, peaceful night of well deserved sleep within the comfort of your private room or cabin.
Providing fresh local cuisine is as enjoyable for us as providing unforgettable outdoor adventures. We serve the freshest Alaskan seafood including salmon, and halibut as well as a variety of other meats. Our garden provides fresh salads and all of our entrees, soups, breads, desserts and bakery goods are prepared from scratch on site by our executive chef and baker. With advance notice we will accommodate special diets. The meals are served family style in our dining room overlooking a spectacular view of lower Cook Inlet. It is not uncommon to observe brown bears meandering outside while seated at your table. We may not be able to control the weather but we can control the dining experience.
