Wildlife Photography Workshop
Looking for a wildlife photography workshop focused on wildlife action-photography? Beginning in mid-October, the eagles begin to congregate in great numbers along the Chilkat River and the Chilkat Bald Eagle Preserve in Haines, Alaska. During a late salmon run, up to 4000 eagle may concentrate along a fourteen-mile stretch of the Chilkat River as temperatures drop and the country locks itself in ice. For the discerning wildlife photographer, there is no greater opportunity to capture dramatic images of eagles as they engage in their late season feeding.
From mid-October to mid-November, I make available a special wildlife photography workshop offering. Our usual guest lodging “SuCasa” is closed for the season, but I will book up to two people at a time for an extended guided wildlife photography workshop in the Chilkat Bald Eagle Preserve, including critique and post-processing tutorials. Lodging will be provided in my home, where we have a lower apartment including bedroom, private bath, and kitchen, as well as community area for evening work. As dining opportunities are limited at this time of year, the price includes breakfast and dinner with your hosts. The cost of this package is $350/night/1-2 people (single or couple). No more than two guests will be booked at a time.
All booking for Eagle Quest wildlife photography workshop will strive to occur outside of the dates of the Haines American Bald Eagle Festival, so as to not overlap with sponsored events, compete with local organizations, and avoid the crowds of spectators and photographers that gather during the official event. It is my hope to maximize the quality of your experience in this wonderful wilderness.
To check availability and make reservations, I can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org . I am also happy to answer any questions about your stay in Haines or making travel arrangements. Be sure to visit my “Getting Here” page for a general overview on travel options.

Interested in bears? Haines offers great opportunities for bear viewing and photography as our brown bears feed on the pink salmon that run in Alaska’s most pristine salmon rivers in August, September and October. Of course there are eagle opportunities as well, as salmon provide the base of a time honored fundamental food chain. (Even humans enjoy the sport of landing salmon on their lures or flies). I offer the same style package to those wishing to focus on bears, or a combination of both bears and eagles. Feel welcome to contact me to explore the timing and opportunities that Haines presents.
