Come up and hone your photography skills!

This tour follows the same route as the Classic, but it's mainly for photographers, of all levels.

I am a professional photographer. For several seasons, I worked as a Photo Tour Guide, here in Skagway, and also in Haines, Alaska.

I have been a photographer since the age of 14. I learned darkroom skills when in high school, and later took some "artsy" photography classes while studying at University, in Washington State. I have hundreds of thousands of images that I've taken, from all over the world, and many, many gigabytes from Alaska, and Canada.

Please, bring your owner's manual with you! Also, spare memory cards, and an extra battery often come in very handy.

You might know a lot more than me, and in that case, I'll shut up, and just show you some beautiful opportunities to capture some amazing images. Even if it's just an iPhone, don't be shy, I can show you some very fun techniques!

The Photography Tour can be done on the other tours as well, ask for details.
