from Denali Midnight Sun Photo Excursion
Experience the thrill of chasing the Alaska Midnight Sun! Learn to photograph the dramatic, long-lasting sunset colors in Denali. With a maximum of 4 participants per tour, your guide will take you to the best locations to revel in the prolonged “magic hour,” beautiful alpenglow, and spectacular cloudscapes of interior Alaska.

During mid-summer, sunset is close to midnight due to far north location. The sunset colors last for an extended period of time, giving an ample opportunity to move to several locations during “golden hour” for instruction and experimentation with different compositions, focal lengths, and exposure settings. This tour offers good potential for moose sightings because moose are more active at dusk and there is less human activity during this time of day.

The photo guides are professional photographers and expert light-wranglers; they will be your location scout and instructor – seeking out the best locations and the most dramatic lighting in real time. You will be provided with individualized instruction so you can hone your skills as you capture beautiful images that will last a lifetime.

This guided excursion offers one-on-one attention and allows you to feel like you have the locations all to yourself for a truly immersive experience.
