We booked this excursion via the ship (Azamara Quest). It was a very small group - just 6 of us. Not very homogenous, as there were big differences in photographic equipment (from cellphones to "very good" SLR cameras) and also in experience. But our guide - Cindy Schultz - was excellent. She brought us to beautiful spots and pointed out the best views ( and wildlife). Also let all of us benefit from her expertise, without trying to impose her ideas. Nice suggestions and tips - for the SLR as well as the cellphones users.
Altogether it were lovely 4 hours.
Highly recommended!

We are so happy to work with Azamara this year. We know that passengers on smaller ships prefer small group experiences. Cindy does a great job and she knows not only how to take great photos, but where to go to get them. Thanks for mentioning that our tours are for all levels....there is lots you can do with a cell phone nowadays and Cindy knows all the tricks!

So glad to hear you enjoyed our Private Photography Tour to Haines. We like offering this private option so that we can customize it to your skill level and interest. David has so much to offer and I'm so happy you enjoyed your time in Haines. Perhaps next time you can join us for our Bald Eagle Preserve raft tour!

It was a good experience, the excellent guide, with a great career as a photographer his name is Cindy Shultz, he took me to the best places, the only thing that wildlife is unpredictable, we could see the eagle in the trees and hopefully before the end of the tour, a bear went out to the river. For running away because my ship was already leaving, I left some of my photography equipment, which kindly they called me and sent it to my house without any charge

So glad to hear that you had an amazing experience with us. Cindy is a great guide and I'm glad she was able to find you a bear! Of course, they are unpredictable but we do all we can. We were happy to get your photo equipment back to you. As a photographer myself, I know how distressing it can be when you've lost your equipment! Hopefully, you can return for a visit in November to see the world's largest gathering of bald eagles.

While booked through my Seabourn cruise, I was fortunate to only have one other person on my tour with Cindy. We had a marvelous 3 hours, visiting different sights and benefiting from personal guidance. I was excited to be able to share "my original photo" and the "one I ended up with", after Cindy's questions and recommendations. I knew this was a worthwhile tour when my millennial son told me one of my shots was spectacular! We saw eagles, forest vegetation, totem poles and breathtaking water-mountain views. It was a wonderful morning.

My mom and I did the photography tour with Paul and he was great. We only had 6 people in our tour so we all had plenty of opportunities to ask questions and troubleshoot with Paul. He took us to some great locations and it was wonderful to be able to learn from experience as opposed to just sitting in a classroom. I feel like my photography improved a lot just from the few hours in this class. I would definitely recommend this to anyone interested in photography.

Thanks so much for your kind review. Paul is an excellent guide and photographer. I'm glad to hear that you learned something valuable on our tour. Our goal is to help you become a better photographer, and it sounds like the tour was a success on all levels!

I scheduled a private photography tour with Paul. He was incredibly knowledgeable about the area and really helpful when taking photos.
He took me to some great locations that tourists don't visit and I felt like I got to see the "real" Alaska
I got some amazing landscape photos as well as pictures of bald eagles.
This was easily the best excursion of any cruise I have ever been on and cannot recommend highly enough.
Phenominal experience!

Joe from Rainbow Glacier Adventures picked me up at the hotel and took me along for a whole-day tour of photography. He had even brought snowshoes in case we would take a little hike....
According to my request he took me to all the places where the movie "White Fang" was filmed - Joe has a very well-founded knowledge of the area and of wildlife and nature, as well of all the connections and backgrounds - he has lived in the area for more than 30 years.
I had a great day, and Joe was just the perfect guide - very friendly, very committed, customizing the tour to my requests, being very flexible and accomodating, yet giving me a lot of personal space to process the impressions of the trip....
A perfect day, and I highly recommend Joe and his company - I will definitely book them again!

Felix this was a special trip for me, too. I enjoy customized and personal trips, and its always fun to guide in the "off-season." We'll see you when you return next year with your wife to stay in our Swan View Cabins! Joe
