I’ve only just recently had the chance to look through some of my images from our excellent Brown Bears of Katmai in the Fall trip this year. Such a great experience up there with daily changing of the leaves, cool temperatures and abundant wildlife. September is one of my favorite months to explore Alaska and this year was one of the best on record. We had so many different bear encounters including mothers with cubs, playful sub-adults and large “boars” that dominated the upper falls. Below are some of my images from the trip – if you’ve ever wanted to photograph wild Brown Bears 2019 is the year to do it! Our first departure in September is already sold out and (at the time of this writing) we have only four spots remaining on the second trip – we would love to have you join us in Alaska this year!

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!
