Learn to photograph grizzly bears in Alaska

photography grizzly bears in Alaska

This could well be the ultimate edge-of-tour-seat animal experience: the chance to photograph grizzly bears in Alaska.

A new nine-day workshop by Tatra Photography gives holidaymakers who are keen photographers the chance to snap grizzlies in their natural environment around Lake Clark.

The workshop will run from September 3-11 and 10-18, with prices from £5,499 that include return flights, transfers, full-board accommodation, guide services and national park entrance fees.

Lake Clark has one of the highest populations of grizzly bears in the world, and photographers will have the opportunity to capture female bears with their cubs in the meadow, as well as bears fishing for salmon or clamming on the beach.

The schedule of the trip is entirely dictated by the movements of the bears, and guests will spend at least eight hours a day photographing the animals.

The tutor for this tour is multi-award winning wildlife photographer and feature contributor to National Geographic magazine, Andrew Parkinson, who will ensure that the group positions themselves for the best light backdrops. Andrew will also be accompanied by experienced guides who have an in depth knowledge and experience of each individual bear.

Throughout their stay, guests will stay at the Homestead Bear Lodge. All rooms have ensuite facilities, and views of either Lake Clark or the gardens surrounding the lodge.
