2019 Arctic Aurora Photography Workshops!
Join me on one of these very popular photography workshops! The Brooks Range is one of the best places in the world for dramatic landscapes combined with an excellent chance to see and and photograph the aurora borealis or northern lights. Very small group sizes (only 4 participants) means lots of time to learn and plenty of of personal instruction. Unquestionably, these five day trips are the best way to learn about and photograph the aurora borealis.
Open Sign-up Tours
I specialize in small group photo workshops and natural history tours. These trips offer the same in-depth guide service and photography instruction found on my popular custom trips, but are available to all. On the schedule right now are:
Arctic Aurora Photography Workshop, 17-21 March 2018, (SOLD OUT)
