We are excited to announce that we have a GREAT new upgrade to our Marine Wildlife of Alaska Photo Safari! Starting during the 2019 season we will be using 45 foot Delta named the Stellar Sunrise. The Stellar Sunrise has a walk around deck, inside seating in a heated cabin for 10-12 people, and can also go into the different bays and coves deep in the park. This is a slightly larger vessel than we’ve used in the past (same great captain & crew!) but should add more speed & stability to our journeys throughout Resurrection Bay & Kenai Fjords National Park.
Previously sold out we’ve been able to add a few more spots on the Marine Wildlife of Alaska: Kenai Fjords trip for 2019. The trip is $6495 including privately chartered vessel, coast guard certified captain, most meals including incredible Alaskan Seafood, ground transportation, professional photography instruction & waterfront lodging in both Anchorage & Seward Alaska. The dates are June 10th to 15th, 2019. We generally see Humpback Whales, Orcas, Porpoise, Sea Lions, Harbor Seals, Sea Otters, Eagles, Puffins & Sea Otters as well as a variety of birds daily – not to mention terrestrial wildlife from afar such as Black Bear & Mountain Goat. If you’ve never explored the oceanic jungle of Alaska’s Kenai Fjords National Park – put this one on your list.
Russ Nordstrand is an award winning Landscape & Wildlife Photographer based in Flagstaff, Arizona. His Fine Art Prints are hanging in private collections throughout the world and he runs Photography Tours & Workshops in the most beautiful and inspirtational locations in the Western United States and beyond.
Russ has been hiking, backpacking, photographing and guiding people in the wilderness areas, deserts, canyons and mountains of the world since 1997. He has logged thousands of miles on the trail and for many years in the past decade over half of his nights were spent in a tent in some far flung outdoor destination.
His Photography reflects an awe and admiration of the great, wide and still wild world we live in. Often his subjects include towering canyon walls, mist shrouded mountain lakes or wildlife in their natural habitat. It also reflects a commitment to preserving these places for the health of our world and for those who come after.
It would be a lie to say he does it completely from an altruistic standpoint. Like any great outdoor photographer he loves the thrill of wild, remote places and the accomplishment of nailing that shot after waking up three hours before dawn and hiking in the dark!
