Testimonials
Hi Michael, I just want to thank you for the wonderful trip to Alaska to photograph the brown bears. It is the most awesome feeling to stand on the ground with one of earth's most powerful creatures. One of the best times was seeing the female dig a hollow in the sand and then lay down to nurse her twin cubs. The lodge you picked for us to stay at was beautiful and the food was great, especially the fresh salmon. You are a very knowledgeable guide and you really know your wildlife. I have been on many trips with other guides or workshop organizers and they are not even close to you. You're very considerate of your clients, you don't leave us, you are always available for help {not worried about getting your photos at any time} and give us some of
the best photo advice and opportunities ever. I am looking forward to going on many more trips with you in the future. Wendy M.
