Located in Alaska’s Lake Clark National Park and Preserve, Silver Salmon Creek offers exceptional opportunities to photograph coastal brown bears in their natural environment. David’s program “The Magic of Silver Salmon Creek” will include a selection of his favorite photos and a discussion on the techniques he used to capture them. Some of the topics covered will be equipment, light, composition, and moment. David will also share tips on planning your own visit to this magnificent wilderness area.
