Get ready to check Alaska off your Top 10 list! This is the tour for you.
Year after year, participants have said it themselves - "This is just SO magical!" and thus it inspired the name for this tour.
Prepare to have a truly magical, private, small-group experience! You will explore the Kenai Peninsula of Alaska with us as we take you to spectacular locations each day. This unique region is often called "Alaska in Miniature" because virtually every Alaskan wildlife habitat type except Arctic tundra is represented here. This tour will provide any nature-loving individual with an experience of a lifetime!
The crowd-free atmosphere gives you the peace, flexibility, mental and physical space to photograph Alaska from your own unique point of view. In addition, your caring leader(s) are also experienced and skilled photographers who can help provide advice, instruction and guidance that enables you to capture incredible images of Alaska through your lens. This truly is a world-class experience.
Prepare to be amazed by the breathtaking beauty of our new location! Our new location is nestled on a bluff overlooking the Cook Inlet and the magnificent Alaska Mountain Range-- including the awe-inspiring Mt. Redoubt, a beautiful dormant volcano. The cabins are even more inviting than the ones we have previously utilized. I am confident that this change will provide an enhanced experience for all workshop attendees.

If your payment is not completed by that time, your seat may be cancelled and no refund issued. For your convenience, we offer auto-billing to your credit card so that you never miss a payment.
If you choose to pay for the entire event up front in one lump sum, should you need to cancel, your refund will be pro-rated according to the due dates for each installment, compared to your cancelation date. (For example, if you canceled after the 3rd installment was due—but prior to the final installment due date, the amount equal to the portion calculated for the final installment will be refunded to you.)
No refunds, credit, certificates, etc. will be issued for cancelations as a large percentage of your payments are directed toward non-refundable fees we pay to secure your excursions, lodging, meals, transportation, staffing and more.

Arrive at the lodge, settle in, capture images of wildlife along the Cook Inlet, and get acquainted with your fellow travelers.
We will also provide a "Camera Clinic" before we set out for our first excursion. This event helps everyone get further acquainted, share photography tips, techniques, ask questions of the leader and fellow participants, learn more about settings and get in the right mindset for our first excursion.
Find your Eagle paradise at Eagle Beach
Get up close and personal with eagles! We will visit Eagle beach -- a special spot near the lodge where we will find an abundance of bald eagles canvasing the coast for fish, sparring with one another, and courting behaviors in mind-air.
This beautiful, uncrowded beach is the ideal spot to capture images of Alaska's most iconic bird. It will not take long to have 1000s of images of these beloved birds as they do their acrobatics and feast on the fish from the waters nearby. If you're lucky, you'll also stumble across "wishing rocks," fossils and large pieces of raw coal that floated in from the floor of the inlet.
