The Alaska Range provides some of the most spectacular & inspiring scenery on earth. Make the most of your time by allowing amazing local photographers help you get in the right place for the best photos possible. Enjoy the luxury of being able to locate, stop, compose, and capture your photo at a pace that is comfortable for you. This tour is perfect for photo enthusiasts and newfound shutter-bugs who want to better understand how to get more out of their camera and have the opportunity to have all the time they want to compose images without feeling rushed.

 

All tours are 100% customizable and we can start at any time (with the exception of Midnight Sun Tours). We can find great light at any time of day and we love chasing the midnight sun, so evenings and late start times are more than welcome. We will work with you to find the perfect time.

midnight sun photo 

excursion

Experience the thrill of chasing the Midnight Sun and learn to photograph the dramatic, long-lasting sunset colors in Denali.  With a maximum of 4 participants per tour, your guide will take you to the best locations to revel in the prolonged “magic hour,” beautiful alpenglow, and spectacular cloudscapes of interior Alaska. 

 

During mid-summer, sunset is close to midnight due to our far north location. The sunset colors last for an extended period of time, giving us ample opportunity to move to several locations during “golden hour” for instruction and experimentation with different compositions, focal lengths, and exposure settings. This tour also offers good potential for moose sightings because there is less human activity during this time of day.
