Join me, Christiopher Dodds in the Kachemak Bay where many of my famous Eagle images were made. This is your chance to make a truly awesome portfolio of Eagle images; dramatic flight shots, dynamic portraits and there is truly no prettier place than this for Eagles in their environment with mountains as the background.

Based in Homer, Alaska, we will be making two daily action filled excursions (weather permitting) to photograph the Eagles that Gene Kene (The Eagle Lady) made famous; and lot's of them. We will be photographing Eagles in-flight, fishing, diving, fighting from land and boat, from near and far.

Our trip is timed to to offer a fair mix of Alaskan weather; we hope for a fair mix of everything from sun to snow, hot and cold. I have been to Homer in March for years, and mother nature has never disapointed.

What's included:


Five days in-the-field photographic instruction and introductory slideshow/ information session on the evening before the workshop. Two daily boat trips (weather permitting) on each of the five days onto the picturesque Katchemack Bay, including all related expenses,  and experienced pilot in a Coast Guard Certified vessel. If the light is right and we want to stay out - we will. If the weather changes and we want to head back - we will. The idea is to bring home a portfolio of amazing images, so we will be flexible and even try to make-up for any time lost boat time due to weather from one day the next. I have been teaching Eagle workshops in Homer for years, so I know how to attract lots of Eagles.
