About this trip

This creative landscape workshop will immerse you in the beauty and wilderness of Alaska’s Arctic Brooks Range for 5 days and 4 nights. Among the mountains, forests, tundra, and sweeping river valleys you’ll have the opportunity to learn new photo techniques discover your own photographic creativity and make images during the peak of autumn color. On clear nights we will hunt for the northern lights, and with luck will have the chance to photograph the lights dancing over reflecting rivers, lakes, and over dramatic mountains. With the guidance and instruction of professional photographer David W. Shaw you’ll take your photography to a new level, and experience one of the most beautiful spots in Alaska. Clean and warm accommodations in the community of Wiseman, and tasty food provided.

Itinerary

Day 1
Fairbanks to Wiseman, Alaska

At about 9am we will depart Fairbanks and start the drive north. The drive from Fairbanks to Wiseman takes about six hours, but we will make frequent stops for images and a picnic lunch next to the Yukon River.

The Dalton Highway, known to locals as the “Haul Road” is extremely scenic as it winds through the boreal forest and up and down steep hills as we approach the Brooks Range.

We will arrive at the isolated community of Wiseman in the afternoon in time to relax for a couple of hours before venturing out to make images in the evening light and keep our eyes peeled for the northern lights.
