    Summer Sunset Photo Safari

    Anchored down in Anchorage for the summer? Perfect time to capture a few shots of the Midnight Sun! Head out with a professional photographer for some one-on-one photography instruction, and tips on some of the best spots in the vicinity to capture late-day shots. As you travel, enjoy additional insights into natural history, which will serve to lend context to the dazzling backdrops you find yourself photographing. Meet at Stewart's Photo Shop in Downtown and hop aboard a cozy tour van. Travel along the scenic Cook Inlet Coast, and arrive at Earthquake Park for your first shoot: the remaining aftermath of the Great Alaska Earthquake of 1964. Then, pay a visit to Point Woronzof, known as a gathering spot for local moose. With a little luck, you'll be hanging a picture of antlers on your wall, but either way you'll have the opportunity to photograph a beautiful perspective of Cook Inlet backed by the Alaskan Range. Afterwards, a pit stop at Lake Hood Floatplane Base will give you the chance to snap some shots of the summer air traffic. Follow with a voyage through Potter Marsh. Formed 100 years ago, totally by accident, this whoopsie wetland now serves as a home for migrating birds. Continue your trip with a drive along Seward Highway, and then take quick hike to McHugh Creek. Master shutter techniques as you photograph the river's flow into Turnagain Arm, with a better-than-bad chance at spotting beluga whales swimming below. Finish your picturesque journey high up in the Glen Alps of the Chugach mountains for panoramic shots of Anchorage and Cook Inlet, just in time for sunset. As a private tour, you can work with your guide to tailor your inventory, and make a spontaneous stops along your route to shoot the local wildlife (with your camera). Happy hunting!
