Had a great time! Colin was fantastic and really took the time to teach some tips and tricks with my gear. Please, if you get the chance, take this tour. Captured a few things we were not even looking for that turned into great photos.
Best Photography Class in Years

This was such an amazing experience for us. Tyler knew so much about Anchorage and Alaska as a whole. We were able to see some amazing views and a Beluga whale. Best photography lesson since college.
Fun and educational evening with a very knowledgable photographer.

Ben took us to places that we didn't know anything about as tourists. He lent me a tripod and suggested different options for photographing the River and setting up the walk to a overlook for a beautiful sunset and stayed for the after glow. Then we went to a place for an iconic overview of the city. Next time we are in Anchorage we will try and book another session with Ben.
Best photo trek in Anchorage
Escape06200609891, 01-08-2022
Our sunset photo trek was awesome. Tyler was our guide and he was extremely knowledgeable about photography, the Anchorage area, and showing us a good time in Alaska. We saw moose, waterfalls, and beautiful scenery. Despite not seeing a sunset, our photo trek was everything we hoped for and then some. Even though I’m a seasoned photographer myself, Tyler helped me with some camera issues and made composition suggestions that were very useful for the different places we visited. All in all I would highly recommend this tour group yo anyone.
Great photos even in the rain

Carl knows a LOT about Alaska and photography. It rained the whole time but we were still able to take great pictures. "Sunset" was at 12:30 a.m. which was pretty awesome. Fun experience.
