The dynamic mountain ranges combined with the temperate rain forest and glaciers has created a diverse and unique habitat. Whether you’re looking to photograph epic landscapes or hope to have a close encounter with bears, Juneau, AK has it all.
Juneau Photo Tours are led by Peter Nestler, an award winning photographer who was born and raised in Southeast Alaska. He has spent years hiking, exploring and photographing the Juneau area. His dynamic images are known for their attention to detail and vivid scenery. Peter’s photography has been featured in many locations, including National Geographic.
Juneau has a very diverse landscape. Getting to the best locations is more than just knowing where to go. The weather in the Juneau, Alaska area is notoriously all over the map. Sometimes we have clear, sunny skies. Most of the time, it’s raining. Certain locations are best under specific conditions. We can help you get there at the right moment.
Juneau has a very diverse wildlife population. We have bald eagles flying overhead constantly (and sitting in trees and on lightpoles, etc). Black bears can pop out on the trail at any moment. We will help you find the wildlife you want to photograph.
We don’t believe in large groups jostling for the best shot. All of our tours are private so that everyone has a great experience. If you’re interested in learning how to take better photos, we have extensive experience in all types of photography.
