Learn Photography on Tour in Alaska!
The tickets are purchased, hotels booked, and you’re down to deciding what you want to do on your upcoming Alaska trip. It might not sound like the best time to learn photography on tour – especially with that nice camera you got before your last trip, but never took out of auto mode because the technical terms in the user’s manual blew your mind. Rest assured, it is! You can learn your camera and photographic techniques right here, on tour with a local photographer guide. Alaska Photo Treks instructors provide how-to coaching for all kinds of cameras and abilities, and practical experience photographing a variety of scenes and subjects in photogenic locations. Their mission is to help you take home travel photos you’ll be proud to share with friends and family (maybe even hang on a wall), and an ongoing passion for photography.
