Nome Alaska and the Seward Peninsula, June 6-12, 2016
2 Spots left!

Join award winning photographer Ken Archer to photograph the breeding birds and wildlife of the scenic Seward Peninsula around Nome, Alaska.  This is one of the top locations to photograph breeding shorebirds, waterbirds, jaegers, loons, ptarmigan and other birds.  The tundra is usually in bloom at this time making for beautiful settings in which to photograph them.  Some of the highlights include Red-throated Loons, Long-tailed Jaegers, American Golden, Pacific Golden and Black-bellied Plovers, Bluethroat, Northern Wheatear, Long-tailed Duck and more all in beautiful breeding plumage.  While birds are the first focus we will also be on the lookout for mammals.  Musk Oxen are reliable with a herd living right around town and several more herds out of the peninsula.  Other mammals that we usually photograph include Red Fox, Arctic Ground Squirrel, Moose and Reindeer.  The landscapes of the Seward Peninsula are spectacular and make for great subjects as well.   Ken Archer, a former first place category winner in Nature's Best Photo Contest and often published photographer will give presentations on photographing birds in the wild, using flash for bird photography and raw image processing as well as instruction in the field. 

The cost of the workshop is $3,195 and includes 6 nights lodging at Drovers Inn as well as all guiding, instruction and transportation from Nome.  The single supplement is $500.  It does not include airfare to and from Nome, Alaska, meals and items of a personal nature.
