Lake Clark, AK Bears
Lake Clark, AK
July 5th -12th, 2014 (arrive in Anchorage 4th, depart afternoon for lodge 5th, depart morning for home 12th) (full)
Having hosted 60 plus bear workshops to date Chas extensive knowledge of bear (black, brown, polar) behavior translates into better imagery for the participant. Knowing what to look for ahead of time can often mean the difference in capturing a mediocre image, or the image of a lifetime.
Our smaller group (6) provides greater opportunity to photograph natural behavior that can frequently be photographed at close range. Our small group and remote access allows us to make the most of each wildlife encounter. Moreoever, our large privately chartered plane allows us to all fly together, while affording us a much higher weight limit (125 lbs plus) per person. This means you can take all the gear necessary without worry!
Our lodge is located in the most beautiful and pristine wilderness setting in Lake Clark National Park. Your adventure begins by taking an included air charter from Anchorage, and landing on the beach in Silver Salmon Creek. On a clear day you can see Mt. Redoubt, Mt. Iliamna and Mt. Augustine all active volcanoes along with the majestic mountain range and Cook Inlet.
This is a highly productive workshop offering photographers unspoiled wilderness environments in which to shoot unique wild brown bear images. Our primary goal is to photograph coastal brown bears and cubs fishing at the nearby creek, clam digging, interacting with each other in their natural environment in the most beautiful, pristine area imaginable. Bear viewing is exceptional! We are constantly amazed by the amount of bears in this area. The bears are comfortable with humans and are not threatened by our presence. The boars are incredible to watch, with the sows and cubs simply adorable and humorous as they play, and roughhouse with their siblings or nurse from their mother. Many times you can view the bears right around the lodge.
The days are long and photo opportunities are abundant. We will make every effort to put you in the right place at the right time. This is your workshop, and we aim to please.
