Yukon and Alaska

Photo Adventure

2020 Yukon and Alaska Expedition is a wildlife safari and night sky dream come true.

Join Greg Johnson, Tornado Hunter on another amazing photography excursion — this time for 5 nights in the Yukon territory and 2 nights at Haines, Alaska. We will be staying in off-the-grid in Yukon and in the picturesque community of Haines. Sept 2020

Love your camera again

Your advanced photo experience begins when we meet in St Johns. We will get aquainted during an evening of socializing and shooting while enjoying a traditional lobster boil on the shores of the North Atlantic ocean. The following days will be an intense camera experience as we tour Canada’s historic east coast. We will view from boat; whales and bird habitat and North America’s easternmost coastline. Then we will be off to central Newfoundland and the fishing villages of Dildo, Old Perlican, Grates Cove, Bay de Verde, Ferryland and many more. There will be a kitchen party or two, screeching in, kissing the cod and many laughs. Bring extra batteries!!

Hear what others are saying

Thanks, I learned how to operate my camera! So much information shared by Greg. I was on info overload after the 1st day, but on the 2nd day everything made sense. Greg you are a great teacher, your course simplified my camera.

I attended Greg's 1st Photo Excursion trip to the Yukon in 2016 and then attended his Intermediate Workshop in 2018. I have never had so much fun learning how to be a better photographer. I traveled from Ont to take the workshop and I learned more in those 2 days than any of the previous courses I have taken. I will keep trying to step outside of my comfort zone and have fun doing it!

I was one of the many of amateur photographers who probably believed that the way cameras are evolving, its hard not to take a bad picture, yet not all my pictures were clear or it wouldn't allow me to take a photo because my settings wouldn't allow it. Gregs course simplified my camera to make troubleshooting easier. Greg's course took the fear out of the camera and made it fun shooting with others who had similar fears/problems. Thanks Greg!
