Recently, I traveled to an incredible place called Haines Alaska. The beauty was stunning and the people kind & fun. But one of the highlights of my trip there, was taking a private photography workshop with resident Tom Ganner. Tom is a retired teacher, but I say that he’s not retired at all – Tom’s natural teaching abilities, come to the forefront on a trip with him. I was very much an amateur photographer, with all the wrong equipment, but Tom calmly & coolly made me feel like I had been shooting great shots forever. He knows his stuff, and brilliantly imparts it into everyone who rides along on a photography tour with him. And, did his teaching mark success? Well, from the moment my workshop ended, I have seen a major improvement in my personal photography! From better knowledge of lighting, challenging new angles and proper equipment usage – my photography has improved ten-fold! But hear me, Tom puts so much more into his workshops than photography and ways to greatly enhance your pictures - he also supplements each trip with his vast historical knowledge of the area, which adds meaning & value to every picture you take! Having the historical background knowledge about the Haines area, really changes how you view every shot thru the camera’s lens. So, it’s a must - if you are visiting Haines Alaska, contact Tom and treat yourself to one of his awesome workshops; you will not be disappointed!

We were gifted a photography tour with Tom Ganner as an early Christmas gift and it was amazing! Our main goal was to photograph eagles at the Chilkat Bald Eagle Preserve. Tom took us out the road and hooked us up with an amazing lens - he was able to attach it to the camera we brought and it was eye-opening to see first-hand the difference in sharpness a lens like that can make compared to our own. He gave us a lot of useful tips about composition, exposure, shutter speed, and even the best place to go for printing of our photos whenever we decided to do so. We even learned some interesting things about eagles from Tom that we didn't already know. It was a very chilly day but he kept us entertained with stories and some jokes. He took us to look for swans as well and found us about 20 of them swimming together on a pretty lake which made for some great photos. On the drive back, we came across a HUGE bull moose right on the side of the road and we were able to safely pull over and photograph him. Overall this was a great experience that I'd highly recommend, not just for those with a photography interest, but also for anyone who wants to see some beautiful scenery and wildlife.

Tom Ganner provides an excellent experience! With a mixture of photography, history, wildlife info, and local lore, Tom makes the tour a memorable and exciting adventure. Tom provides a relaxed pace and knows the area well enough to know where to visit based on the weather conditions, time of day, and wildlife activity. This tour was an enjoyable experience worth repeating when my travels again include Haines, Alaska. My suggestion is to contact Tom as early as possible if you are considering booking a tour.

My husband and I had been to Haines several times and this time wanted to try something new. Since we have been interested in improving our photography skills, Tom's tour sounded like a good choice. I contacted him prior to our arrival and arranged for him to pick us up at our RV park. The afternoon turned out to be an outstanding adventure filled with photography advice and great stories about Haines past and present. Tom knows his craft and has the unique gift of making learning fun. We visited some of his favorite spots, saw some great birds, and spectacular scenery. We came away more knowledgeable about our cameras, photo composition and the Haines community. I would highly recommend spending some time with Tom. It was the highlight of our time in Haines and I'm sure it will be for you too!

Thank you Tammy ... being able to share the beauty and bounty of this very best corner of Alaska with folks such as yourself who appreciate finding themselves in such a special environment helps to remind me how lucky I am to live here myself. I hope you get to come back to Alaska, and relive the rendezvous of the eagles. It never gets old. I truly enjoyed your company and I look forward to a continuing friendship.
