This is the very best Alaska Bald Eagle photography tour / workshop hands down! Join me and Robert O’Toole next March 2016 for a very memorable 4 day Bald Eagle tour in Alaska. The workshop spot is located close to Homer, in an area where there are a lot of fishing boats. Because of this, the Bald Eagles of the area are very curious and come close to each boat. This photography tour is a mix of land and boat expeditions. With only a 70-200mm, you will be able to photograph the Eagles while flying, banking and diving for fish. You will get very close! All images below are compliment Robert O’Toole.

Since you will see the Bald Eagles diving with numerous swoops over the water, there will be many opportunities for close up flights above the water surface with wings up. I find the image above quite amazing, with astonishing symmetry! For those who have followed some of my awarded images, I tend to do very well with photographs depicting the properties of the one above.

While the birds will often come close to check out the boat, you will see and photograph fantastic aerial displays. The banking image above is just one of many poses you are very likely to be able to create! The Bald Eagles will fly around and perform beautiful banks during their sharp turns. With tips from two premiere instructors, you will be put in the best situation, at the best time.

Close encounters are common

How close is that! Note only you will get very close to your subjects, but most people obtain wonderful results at fairly small ranges. No need for a 600mm to be successful there, making this photography workshop very attractive to all 🙂
