This was amazing! I’ve done three different tours with Mr. Bill And highly recommend his photography workshops. The knowledge he has of Alaska and the geography make it even more memorable. I’ve become a much better photographer thanks to his coaching and patience.

Northern Lights in Alaska from the end of April to mid August are not viewable at all.. We have lots and lots of summer light in our skies here. They do call us the Land of the Midnight sun.
