Alaska Photography Workshops

“Every day was filled with wonder.” –  Denise L., Trimble, MO.

Photography workshop in AlaskaWhy choose a small ship adventure aboard the David B for your next photography workshop?

  • Because the 65-foot David B will take you to wild, remote, and unbelievably beautiful locations in southeast Alaska, including Glacier Bay National Park.
  • Because you will have the time to immerse yourself in nature while you practice the art of photography.
  • Because our instructors are there to help you as much or as little as you want so that you can focus on your craft.

As far as travel on the boat goes:

…there is no mail to read and answer; no newspapers to excite you; no telegrams to fret you or fright you—the world is far, far away; it has ceased to exist for you—seemed a fading dream, along in the first days; has dissolved to an unreality now; it is gone from your mind with all its businesses and ambitions, its prosperities and disasters, its exultations and despairs, its joys and griefs and cares and worries. They are no concern of yours any more; they have gone out of your life; they are a storm which has passed and left a deep calm behind.

Following the Equator

We think that Mark Twain expresses life aboard best, and after the year that was 2020, we would like to offer you all of that, plus a fun, creative, and active way to enjoy creating photographs.Photo workshop in Tracy Arm Alaska
