2018 Yukon Wildlife and Aurora Workshop

 

 

Overview of Workshop

Calling all photographers that have always wanted to photograph Canadian wildlife and the northern lights in one of the best locations in the world to capture the Aurora. 

I am referring to the Yukon. It is here where you will close your eyes and breathe in crisp Yukon air. Smell spruce sap and the earthy scent of tundra, and listen for the excited howls of husky sled dogs. But the real magic happens when you open your eyes and drink in Yukon landscapes under dancing aurora borealis.

Come with me on a vacation in Canada's Yukon, it is a larger than life experience.

Now after five years of running workshops in Northern Canada, I’ve decided to take a small group of photographers to focus on the wildlife. Our target species are Canada Lynx, Red Fox, Silver Fox, Artic Fox, Muskox, Dall Sheep, Mountain Goats, Caribou, Woodland Bison, Elk, Moose, Mule Deer.  

This is the perfect trip for someone that wants to focus on capturing once in a lifetime aurora images over some of the most majestic landscapes Canada has to offer. And, photograph some of the most exotic animals Canada has to offer.

Our animal photo shoots are custom tailored private photo shoots up close and personal with some of the most desirable animal species in Canada at the Yukon Wildlife Preserve.

Because this group is small it will also allow us to be flexible and photograph these animals in an intimate setting with backdrops of mountains and forests. The size of the group will also allow us the flexibility to get to the locations I know produce the best aurora I have seen in Canada.
