GUIDED DAY SAFARIS

I love taking fellow photographers out to photograph the great Alaska outdoors. There are so many photography opportunities and I have spent the last few years learning where and when to find a variety of species. If you are planning to visit Alaska and will be in the Anchorage area for a few days, I would be delighted to help you get that perfect shot. See my specialty safaris below or send me a message if you have other species on your photography wish list. 

Winter Willow Ptarmigan

Join me high in the Chugach Mountains to photograph winter Willow Ptarmigan. These stunning white upland game birds are a fun, challenging, and beautiful bird to photograph. I give you hands on tutoring and mentoring to get you the best photos possible. Snowshoes are required along with the ability to hike in a winter mountain setting (uphill through snow).
 
Privately guided trips available from November till the end of March and usually last about 4 hours. Cost is $350

Red-necked Grebes

There is a short window during the late spring here in Alaska to photograph Red-necked Grebes with their cute little zebra-striped babies.

"Jamin provided me with the experience of a lifetime on a recent trip to Alaska. He worked with me in advance, choosing the perfect location with the knowledge of what I was I looking for in my photography. We spent a beautiful morning on a lake with a pair of Pacific Loons that only a local would know about. He had a perfect understanding of what would make an ideal photography location, and I can honestly say that I would never have found something like this without his expertise. Highly recommended!"
