Ron Niebrugge has an unexpected opening for one more photographer for his August 7 - 13, 2013 (7 days/6 nights) bear photo workshop in Lake Clark National Park. Ron is an Alaskan native (and resident) and is one of the country's premiere wilderness and wildlife photographers; I profiled him for Outdoor Photographer magazine a few years back.
On his blog Ron writes: "In August the spring cubs are a little bigger and a bit more
independent. The possibility of photographing fishing bears; bears
chasing, catching and eating salmon is always high in August as the
salmon start running. Another opportunity is perching Puffin. In
August the Puffin are busy feeding chicks, and will be flying to and
from their burrows with mouths full of needlefish."
Time magazine said of Ron's tour: "This tour around Lake Clark National Park promises bear sightings,
and thanks to a precision-timed itinerary, they're prolific: brown
bears walking, sleeping and feeding on salmon."
I can't think of a more exciting way to spend a week than photographing brown bears in Alaska with a master wildlife photographer. According to Ron airfares to Alaska area also extremely cheap right now. Life is short, have fun, go photograph bears!
