Don’t just experience the beauty of Alaska—learn how best to capture it on your camera. Travel with award-winning photographer Jeff Schultz and you’ll get personalized, hands-on instruction as you take in the state’s magnificent sights.
Who He Is
Jeff’s images have been published in National Geographic, Sports Illustrated, Outside, and many other publications. He’s also done work for corporate clients, and has been the official photographer of the Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race since 1982. A California native who became obsessed with photography at a young age, Jeff moved to Alaska more than 35 years ago; photographing Alaska’s landscapes, wildlife, and people—and teaching others how to do it—has become his passion.
What’s your passion? What would you most like to see in Alaska and capture in images? National parks, glaciers, wildflowers, birds, bears, the Northern Lights: Whatever and wherever it is, Jeff can plan the perfect trip and give you hands-on instruction for how best to shoot it—whether you’re on foot or in a helicopter or bush plane. As a longtime Alaska resident, Jeff knows the state’s most scenic places, where to find the most abundant wildlife, what changes the seasons bring, and how to navigate the sometimes-complicated logistics of traveling here. And as an award-winning photographer, Jeff knows the all the technical and artistic tricks of the trade. So whether you’re just starting to learn or are an experienced photographer, Jeff can help improve your skills in some of the world’s most gorgeous natural settings. And no matter if you’re an individual, a family, or a group, these custom trips let you experience Alaska in a very unique way.
Jeff also offers small group tours with a maximum of 6 participants that depart throughout the year and include accommodations, transportation, and meals. For example, his “Into the Wild” trip, which takes place every year in August, is a 15-day trip that hits highlights like Denali National Park (to see moose and bears), the Kenai Peninsula (glaciers and whales), and Lake Clark (brown bears). Or choose the “Brown Bears, Glaciers & Fall Colors” trip—a 7-day tour that happens in September and includes seeing brown bears in Lake Clark, taking a helicopter flight over an iceberg-filled lake, and getting tips on the best ways to capture Alaska’s vibrant fall colors and (when visible) the Northern Lights.
