Aurora Photography Workshop September 2012, March 2013
While enjoying his stay at the Bettles Lodge Al Piecka fell in love with the arctic through a camera lens. Al decided to come back and teach a class dedicated to Northern Lights Photography. This will be Al’s third annual workshop, in 2011 the workshop was a great success with many photos taken and lots of smiles and memories had.
Al Piecka is a freelance photographer living in East Wenatchee WA and spends most of his time teaching photography seminars and hosting various on-site nature and wildlife workshops. He has been fortunate to have been published in several magazines. Al believes that “Bettles is the best place to photograph the Aurora.”
Fly into Fairbanks, Alaska and let Al take care of the arrangements from there. Roundtrip tickets to Bettles, meals, lodging & activities will all be included in the tour package. Show uip with a camera & tripod, the Bettles Lodge will provide Arctic Gear to keep you warm while capturing the lights on camera. We do recommend that you bring a pair of light gloves and a head lamp for a hands free light & warm fingers while working that shutter! The Aurora Viewing Cabin provides the perfect warming hut to visit while you wait for the Lights to appear, or to step in and warm up. Hot beverages and home bake goods provided during the evening to keep that pep in your step while you eagerly see what Mother Nature has to offer from night to night.
