Alaskan Bald Eagle Workshop

In winter’s grandeur, thousands of Bald Eagles congregate along the pristine rivers of the Pacific Northwest.  They have traveled vast distances in search of one of the world’s incredible natural events and their favorite food, spawning salmon.

Join us on an incredible adventure and allow our pre trip scouting and extensive experience at these locations give you the opportunity to take the best bald eagle photographs you have ever taken.  All while increasing your knowledge of how to photograph these iconic birds.  Each day you will receive subject specific photography guidance followed by personalized evening photo review.

Your focus will be to photograph a variety of bald eagle behaviors including the legendary “eagle catching a fish” shot.  We commonly witness this behavior at frame filling distances all around the boat on this trip!  Our custom outfitted privately chartered motorized boat gives us exclusive access to the best locations from eye level.  We also commonly see close up fly-by’s, incredible territorial battles, and congregations in stunning mossy trees characteristic of only the Pacific Northwest along the river, a truly unique destination to photograph bald eagles indeed.  Sign up today while space lasts!
