Tours and Workshops - cindycone


Most of my adventures are not just photography tours. Although they certainly revolve around taking great photos, we also typically learn about the culture and the people, as well as the natural history of the places visited. The participants are not only photographers of varied experiences, but also birders, biologists, artists, writers, and anyone who loves travel and the natural world.

Coastal Brown Bears of Alaska Photo Tour

August  2018

Lake Clark is a photographer’s paradise and one of the hidden gems of the National Park System. Located 100 miles from Anchorage but accessible only by small aircraft or boat, the park is deep in the Alaskan wilderness. Lake Clark National Park and Preserve at Silver Salmon Creek is the best destination to capture photos of grizzly bears in their natural habitat. The grizzly bears which live inside the wildlife preserve have never been hunted by humans, meaning that photographers can watch the bears acting naturally without adding any stress to these beautiful creatures, more naturally than any other setting. Although grizzly bears are still formidable wild animals that require respect, the bears inside Lake Clark National Park and Preserve peacefully live and let live. Unlike sites that have been overrun with tourists, Lake Clark Preserve sustains its pristine environment. The park doesn’t have any crowds, boardwalks or viewing platforms. The bears are at ease with our presence and act naturally.  The excellent guides provided for us by the lodge know these bears individually from years of observation and that assures us of a safe and successful trip.
