Yukon Winter Photography Trip

This trip offers a close up view of life in the Yukon for photographers and non photographers alike. Step back in time; this tour will take you on historic trails used by many trappers over the years. You will learn the basics of mushing and form a close relationship with your dogs when we’re setting off into the wilderness, exploring the pristine winter wonder land of the Yukon through our lenses. If we’re lucky we may see the amazingly beautiful Aurora Borealis dancing in the sky, or see some of Yukon's abundant wildlife.

Come up north for your adventure of a lifetime and you’ll go home with many tall stories, great photos and happy memories.

Dates: February 24, 2016 to March 2, 2016

What You Will Learn

The Photography skills that you will walk away learning more about are; taking landscape photos of mountain landscapes, controlling exposure and controlling shadows and highlights, creating better wildlife images, long exposure night photography of the northern lights and controlling moving subjects like the dog sled teams and wildlife.

We will also spend some time on our computers and discuss editing techniques in various software programs and help you learn more about the functions of your camera.

Because of our use of a dog team you will learn the skill of hooking up your very own dog team, then checked for safety by our guides. You will also learn how to control the sled team like people have for centuries under the guidance of professionals. We have done this numerous times and it is an exhilarating experience
