Though the majestic landscapes and abundant wildlife of Southeast Alaska/Yukon provide many photographic opportunities to capture spectacular images of both, “great” photographs cannot be quantified or guaranteed. A truly “great” photograph is often the result of a combination of unpredictable factors such as good weather, good lighting and old fashioned “good luck” and more determinate factors such as a photographers skill, vision, perseverance and equipment. For example, to capture a “good” aurora borealis (i.e. northern lights) shot a photographer needs the good luck of favorable conditions, willingness to lose sleep, the proper equipment and the technical know how to use that equipment properly. Being in a location where the conditions of an aurora borealis is favorable is only the first step in creating opportunity. The Southeast Alaska/Yukon photography tour has been designed with six sub-tours to maximize photographic opportunities for a variety of subjects ranging from landscapes and wildlife to cultural icons and aerial views from the land, sea, river and air.
