​​​​​​General Description: The SE Alaska/Yukon Autumn Photo Adventure Tour/Workshop is a photographic adventure tour/workshop hosted by Beyond Skagway Tours, (Most often #1 on Trip Advisor under Things to Do in Skagway), and featuring award winning Alaskan photographer guide, Peter Hines of Tao of Light Photography and is designed specifically for photographers of all stripes from amateur to advanced, enthusiast to pros. It is intended to create an immersive and intimate photographic experience with follow photographers that will offer, over the course of a week, many opportunities via “sub-tours” from land, sea, river and air to photograph wildlife* and SE Alaska/Yukon scenery during the peak of the autumn season’s “fall colors” ranging from majestic mountains and lakes to awe-inspiring glaciers and beautiful water falls. In addition to these photographic opportunities the “workshop” portion will include in depth discussions of photography topics and special tips, sunrise/sunset and moonrise/moonset photo shoots and include a round table critique session and special field sessions with two additional guest Alaskan photographer guides.
