Denali Photo Guides has been offering small group, instructional photography excursions since 2010. Tours are designed to benefit visitors to Denali National Park who have an interest in photographing the beautiful landscapes in Alaska. Tours travel in luxury trucks along the boundary of Denali National Park, into Broad Pass, and on the Denali Highway, stopping several times to get out and shoot pictures. Tours are typically 3 to 4 hours in duration. Guests may have their own camera, rent one from us, or they may bring a smart phone. No matter what type of gear guests have or what their skill level is, our guides help visitors progress as photographers. With a maximum of 4 participants per tour, our guides spend a significant amount of one-on-one time with each guest. In addition to photography, guides also provide information about the area’s natural history, geology & culture. The small group size allows guests the freedom to ask any question they want (as many times as they want!). The combination of the small group with our selection of pristine locations fosters a truly immersive experience leaving guests with a lasting impression of the vastness, wilderness, and specialness of the Denali area.
