Alaska Bears September 2023

Brown Bear Workshop 2023


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.

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.
