Brooks Range Auroras & Autumn Landscapes with Carl Johnson | Aug 30 - Sep 4, 2017
Experience a workshop that will test your endurance and challenge you to add new photography skills to your repertoire! Clear skies will mean late night shooting, along with plenty to photograph during the day. Base camp for this workshop is Boreal Lodge in Wiseman, Alaska, nestled in a dramatic valley surrounding the Middle Fork of the Koyukuk River, and directly beneath the auroral oval. Wiseman is a former mining town as described by Robert Marshall in Arctic Village. Today, it is home to 13 permanent residents living in the expansive wilderness of Brooks Range.
