Alaska 4-Day Coastal Glacier Landscapes Photo Workshop

WHEN: July 24 - 27, 2017

WHERE: Girdwood & Whittier, Alaska

FEE: $1,195



WHO SHOULD ATTEND: Active Intermediate to Advanced photographers

This photo workshop includes both the 'Spencer Glacier Adventure' and the 'Glaciers, Icebergs, and Wildflowers Up Close Prince William Sound' photo tours described below with the additional benefit of classroom instruction, demonstrations, and image critique.

Immerse yourself in a unique coastal mountain and glacier carved landscape not found anywhere else in the western U.S. where big mountain views rise precipitously from sea level bathed in 17-hours of daylight. In this adventurous landscape intensive workshop, we take you to remote but accessible glacier locations, returning each night to the comforts of town. Designed to maximize on-location time, our landscape quests will focus on water, mountains, reflections, wildflowers, rainforest, icebergs and glaciers.

In addition to capitalizing on road accessible photo opportunities, the itinerary includes two days of guided, uniquely Alaskan, all day tours off the highway by boat and rail, where we get up close and personal with glaciers and icebergs.

Alaska Spencer Glacier Adventure Photo Tour


with The Ascending Path Guides & Alaska Railroad

WHEN: July 25, 2017

WHERE: Girdwood, Alaska

FEE: $495



WHO SHOULD ATTEND: Active Intermediate to Advanced photographers

This is a uniquely Alaskan landscape photo adventure at a remote but accessible glacier landscape for active photographers. We will team up with Ascending Path for a guided glacier hike with a sea kayak approach across Spencer Lake which is usually filled with icebergs.

This is a 12-hour+ photo driven adventure tour (with lunch provided) with plenty of time to shoot landscapes with wildflowers and icebergs before and possibly after our guided kayak/hike adventure begins. We will arrive on location via a very scenic ride on the Alaska Railroad to the remote Spencer Glacier Whistle Stop. From our remote stop off the highway, we travel 3 miles by van to Ascending Path’s basecamp along the shores of Spencer Lake.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND: Intermediate to Advanced Photographers

This photo tour is a full day tour with on-location instruction with a small group of photographers on a privately chartered boat. Lazy Otter Charters will take us to one of the most spectacular places in Prince William Sound: Harriman Fjord.

Here we will find 5 tidewater glaciers, spectacular waterfalls, and massive peaks. There are two planned beach landings where we stand a good chance of taking close-up photos of icebergs with glaciers and mountains in the background. Along the way and once in Harriman Fjord, there will be ample opportunities to capture glaciers and mountain views. There are possibilities to photograph sea otters, birds, harbor seals, and other marine wildlife too.
