Autumn In Alaska
Autumn in Alaska is the best time to be there for photography. The wildlife is in great shape with full, thick coats of fur, fully developed antlers, and well-fed healthy bodies after a short but productive summer. And the scenery is beyond compare with spectacular fall colors in the trees and on the tundra. The reds, oranges, and yellows surpass even the well-known New England fall colors.
Now's the time to plan for next year's highly popular Denali photo tour. It will be September 2 -8, 2017. We meet in Anchorage and then depart for the great adventure! The fee includes a private guide and private vehicle in Denali just for our group, all meals and lodging (except pre- and post days in Anchorage), all ground transportation in Alaska, individualized instruction, image critiques, and tips. The meals are great, the lodging is lovely and comfortable, the wildlife is everywhere, and the scenery will thrill you. There might even be a chance to see the Aurora Borealis! Note that information is not yet on the website, so now is the time to register before the announcement goes public. For pricing and details, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org Don't miss this trip, limited to only 10 photographers.
On another note, with the holidays coming, now is the time to make a list of the photo gear you want. Make a list, check it twice, and then give it to all your friends and family members for easy gift-giving! If you are not familiar with Hunt's Photo and Video, or even if you are, I highly recommend them for all your photo gear needs. They have a huge inventory and can get you virtually anything you want. Their prices are competitive, and their customer service is unsurpassed. I used to use the REALLY big guys (and you know who I mean), but now I use Hunt's because of their fast and personal service, great prices, and free shipping. It is a family-owned company which means they really care about you, and they want to gain your trust and your business. Here is the link to their weekend specials https://www.huntsphotoandvideo.com/promotions.cfm If you don't see what you want, email the co-owner Gary here and he will do his best to get you the item at the best price.
