About Alaska Photo Treks


Alaska Photo Treks

Alaska Photo Treks (dba of Through The Lens Alaska, LLC) was founded in 2013 by a trio of professional photographers who had a mission to share this amazing state with others through the lens of their cameras. Today, we are a group of Alaska photography guides and associates, including owner Carl Johnson. We have an extensive team of longtime Alaskans with diverse photography backgrounds.  With extensive and unique backcountry photography experience, each of us is also a professional photographer in our own right, with many diverse clients and assignments when not instructing or guiding. We are well-versed in Alaska’s natural history and have much to share about our lives in the 49th state. Meet Our Team!

Technical, creative, and regional expertise in Alaska’s most scenic locations is our specialty. We know where to be and when, and have a pretty good track record at finding wildlife too! Services are tailored to fit every skill set and level of interest.
