Nature Photographer, Guide and Instructor Michael Bertelsen is proud to welcome you to one of North America's Leading Loon Photography Tours and Workshops.
To North Americans the loon is a symbol of wilderness and solitude. It's stunning beauty has made it one of the most sought after birds to photograph.
What makes this trip so special
The very stable one of a kind boat is specifically laid out for Loon photography. Very comfortable swivel seats are designed to drop down to allow extreme low angle photography; just a mere 16 inches from lens to the surface of the water. The boat has a flat floor as well as an outboard motor that will get us to our destination quickly. When we arrive a silent electric motor gets us in close to the loons & offers you up close photo opportunities.
Michael monitors 11 pairs of nesting loons on 9 different lakes. This has made it possible to offer photographers a 90% loon chick success rate since 1997. Offering different lakes gives the photographer a selection of water colors and reflections as well as other wildlife such as moose, black bear, beaver, muskrat and a selection of marsh birds like blue herons, kingbirds, bitterns, kingfishers to name a few.
Your certified Captain, guide and instructor is on the boat with you, offering helpful tips, answering questions and explaining what to expect next. As a result, you have the very best chances to capture some of the finest loon images.
