In Travel pr, Client News

New nine day workshop by Tatra Photography gives photographers the chance to snap grizzly bears in their natural environment amidst the spectacular beauty of Lake Clark, Alaska.

Tatra Photography has unveiled a new workshop running from the 3 – 11 and the 10 – 18 September 2016. The tour will give guests the opportunity to shoot at Lake Clark in Alaska, which is a paradise for photographing grizzly bears.

This rare and amazing opportunity includes return flights, transfers, full-board accommodation, guide services and national park entrance fees.

Lake Clark has one of the highest populations of Grizzly Bears in the world and photographers will have the opportunity to capture female bears with their cubs in the meadow, as well as bears fishing for salmon or clamming on the beach. These images will be perfectly complimented by the incredible backdrop that Lake Clark has to offer: an array of stunning volcanoes, jagged mountains, glaciers, wild rivers and waterfalls.

The schedule of the package is entirely dictated by the movements of the bears and guests will spend at least eight hours a day photographing the animals.

The tutor for this tour is multi-award winning wildlife photographer and feature contributor to National Geographic magazine, Andrew Parkinson, who will ensure that the group positions themselves for the best light backdrops. Andrew will also be accompanied by experienced guides who have an in depth knowledge and experience of each individual bear.

Throughout their stay, guests will stay at the Homestead Bear Lodge, giving them the chance to fully immerse themselves in their natural surroundings. All rooms are spacious with Ensuite facilities and fantastic views of either Lake Clark or the gardens surrounding the lodge.

“We are thrilled to be able to offer photographers this once in a lifetime opportunity to capture these bears in their natural environment. Grizzly bears always make for fascinating photographic subjects and with Lake Clark as their backdrop and the guidance of Andrew Parkinson, guests will inevitably come back with an impressive selection of photographs” said Matt Jevons, founder of Tatra Photography.

The Tatra Photography Grizzly Bears tour runs from 3 – 11 / 10 – 18 September 2016 available from £5,499 per person and includes:
