I have good news and bad news. The bad news, all my photo tour trips for 2014 are full. But the good news, I will be working with Hugh Rose on a polar bear tour and there is still space for anyone who wants to join us this Fall! This is something we have been talking about and planning for months, and are now ready to begin taking reservations.
Hugh created and pioneered this Polar Bear tour many years ago. In recent years this trip has been copied, but no one comes close to having Hugh’s experience guiding photographers in the Alaska Arctic. I have always thought this was one of the best photo tours in Alaska and I have referred a number of people his way over the years.
I first meet Hugh back sometime in the mid 90’s on a Kenai Fjords tour boat. I was just beginning to pursue my passion of photography more seriously, and he was already an established guide leading a group. Fast forward 15 years or so to today. We are now good friends, and I have worked with him on trips to Antarctica, and in Alaska on a photo trip into Prince William Sound and Cordova, Alaska. Not only is he an excellent photographer, but maybe one of the best, if not the best naturalists I know. It is an honor to be joining him. It is going to be a fun trip – there is typically no shortage of laughter on trips we work together!
