2011 Katmai Bears - Alaska Trip Report


Another very fun trip with Chuck Keim on the Coastal Explorer. It is so nice to know you have a boat with beds and food waiting for you after each photo shoot. This time everyone was happy they heeded my warnings and bought along rain gear as we did have some rain everyday. Not to worry though because the bears look great in overcast and wet conditions (see slide show) and exposures are easier especially with the white rock in the stream beds. Salmon were hard to come by for the bears this year, but that just kept then in front of us longer! Besides bears we did photograph bald eagles as well as harbor seals. See you next year. Sign up early for this fun trip.



This is a trip I lead often. It is a favorite with wildlife photographers and is often full a year in advance so please plan accordingly.
