We were very fortunate to have Cheryl Mullins show us around Haines AK. The adventure was more than site seeing but a view into a way of life that captured my heart. A way of life that focused on family, friends, and community...the way life is suppose to be. Yes the sites and sounds of this beautiful community captures you... More

This was one of the best excursions that Lynn and I took while cruising with Princess. Tom took us to places off the beaten path, helped us with some great photo tips and entertained us with his knowledge of the area and its history. I would highly recommend this to anyone who wants photograph parts of Alaska not normally seen... More

One of the best tours we took on our recent Alaska cruise was a photo tour with Thomas Pickerel in Skagway. There was just my wife and I and one other couple on the tour. Thomas took us to some great location and provided both local insight and photography instructions. It was great way to get away from the crowds... More

After finding Rainbow Glaciers on Tripadvisor and reading all the wonderful reviews, we decided to sign up for a photography tour in Haines. We arrived in Skagway and took the fast ferry to Haines. Everything was well organized and simple. We were greeted immediately when we got off the cruise ship and taken to the ferry and were immediately greeted... More

We couldn't have made a wiser choice than to go on a photography excursion in Skagway and we couldn't have been luckier than getting Thomas Pickerel to lead us in our adventure. This was our first time in Alaska but if "the good Lord's willing" we'll be back to take another tour with him. He helped make our trip the... More

Whilst on a Holland America cruise to Alaska I opted for a photo session when we stopped at Skagway. Thomas Pickerel was our guide and he provided a first class service. He is himself a top class photographer and he took us to several superb sites where all three of us were able to capture some great shots. Thomas did... More

I recently had the opportunity to go on a photo excursion lead by Tom Ganner with Marty assisting Tom. I had high expectations for this tour and had been looking forward to it for months. Tom and Marty not only meet my expectations, but they far exceeded them. We had a wonderful day. Our guides not only knew where to... More

We had a wonderful time with Tom. He was informative, entertaining and he did a great job getting us down the river. The scenery was awesome. A very special place!

I had the good fortune to spend a day in Skagway with a very knowledgeable, professional guide, Tom Pickerel, who made our trip memorable on many levels. I was traveling with my teenage grandson who thought Tom was "very cool." Tom was funny and interesting and he was so accommodating, there was no part of the day that could've been... More

As a long term photographer myself, I found the whole outdoor class experience truly refreshing and informative. Tom has a unique presentation style that allows you to explore your own approach to capturing the beauty of Alaska while helping you understand some of the complexities of "making that shot work". I was part of a group of 10 on June... More
