“The Colony Glacier workshop with Jeff Schultz was an excellent learning experience. The location was amazing with excellent views of the glacier and the surrounding watershed and lake. Jeff method of instruction is practical and easy to understand. By using on location examples he demonstrated practical applications of photography techniques to apply to my landscape photography. I was delighted with this workshop experience.”

“I’ve been to over a dozen photo workshops and none of them compare to the quality of trip that I had with Jeff Schultz. The attention to detail on the logistics, meals, lodging and locations was superb. Nothing was left wanting. Every time we were out shooting, Jeff was not taking his own pictures but rather took the time to go to each participant to see what and how they were shooting and the results they were getting. He then made suggestions if the participant wanted or taught more on how to make it a better image if needed. Very few of the instructors I’ve had do that. I will be booking another workshop with Jeff very soon.”
“I was very impressed with this trip. Jeff was an excellent instructor and a highly skilled photographer. He was very patient and adapted very well to the weather and the various needs of the people on the tour. I came away with a ton of amazing photos and memories that will last a life time.”
“Jeff has been a native photographer for the last 30years+. He knows the location and weather. That’s the most important for a tour because weather changes with a day so much that only someone like Jeff can plan and yet change the plan to get you to the place with the right light and weather for the photo shoot. That’s what he did with my trip.”
“Since our experience was a customized tour, we enjoyed an appropriate level of material for our skills, interest and patience. We got the most out of our equipment, more than I have ever before. We also learned the limitations of our gear and an appreciation for more capable tech.”
Why Jeff Schultz Alaska Photo Tours?
Jeff has been photographing Alaska’s wildlife, landscapes, adventures and people for 40+ years.
As you likely know, Alaska is extremely vast and quite varied as much as it’s 665,000 square miles. It is a very unique destination and as such has equally unique opportunities… if you know the State’s secrets.
Many Alaska Photo tours are guided by non-Alaskans. If you are wanting an Alaska insider’s expertise to guide you to stunning Alaska locations at the right time of day and in the right season, Jeff Schultz is the right choice. If you want the real deal to get to the off-the-beaten-path locations Jeff’s scheduled or private, custom Alaska Photo tours are for you.
Whether you are a beginning photographer or have advanced skills, Jeff will cater your experience to increase your photography to the next level.
What’s Unique About The Tours?
Jeff Schultz offers very few scheduled tours each year. Each one is popular and sells out quickly. These scheduled tours are limited to only six clients which allows Jeff to give personal attention to each participant and increase their photography knowledge. Jeff is NOT there to make his own photos, but rather to give you the attentiveness you desire.
All of Jeff’s scheduled tours are to locations that are tried and true to give you the best opportunity for creating stunning, one-of-a-kind images of wildlife and landscapes.
Jeff’s private, custom Alaska photo tours are all designed with exactly the type of images you are looking to create. Based on the Alaska subject of your dreams (wildlife or landscape or BOTH), Jeff will create an itinerary that allows you the VERY best possibility of making great photographs. Jeff uses his 40+ years of connections and relationships with Alaska’s finest lodges, helicopter and airplane operators to get you out to exceptional & exclusive locations.

“I have had several trips with Jeff over the past few years. Jeff is incredibly knowledgeable but also patient to explain things so you can understand. Jeff knows the Alaska area so well that he will get you to a spot where you can use your expertise for incredible photo ops. I have experienced Alaska landscapes, Bears, Moose, Whales, Sled Dog races, and Northern Lights photography far north of the Arctic Circle. Every trip has been great, and more importantly, working with Jeff has helped me improve my photo game immensely.”

“This should be on your bucket list! If you like nature and wildlife, you need to join Jeff on one of his Alaskan tours! One of the highlights was our helicopter ride (doors off!) to a local glacier! I am a fairly novice photographer, with OK equipment, and Jeff was able to work with me to achieve the best photographs I could. He worked with everyone and provided tips and tricks to help us all. He is incredibly present for everyone. I wholeheartedly recommend this trip for anyone interested in nature and photography!”
Danielle L — Colorado
“The first afternoon alone was so full of real-world, wildlife photography experience and teaching, it felt like 3 days because we did and learned so much about wildlife photography (in this case, of bears). I learned so much about not only my camera and lenses, but also the foundations of focus, focal distance, filters, exposures, and how to adapt for shooting everything from fast-moving bears to waterfalls to slow-moving icebergs in a glacier lake. On top of that, it was one of the most amazing experiential workshops I have ever done. I thought I was a pretty decent photographer before this trip; spending a week doing this kind of real-world and personal training by Jeff Schultz just made me that much better!”

Three Trips with Jeff
I’ve been to over a dozen photo workshop some of them compared to the quality of trip that I had with Jeff Schultz. The attention to detail on the logistics, meals, lodging and locations was superb. Nothing was left wanting. Every time we were out shooting, Jeff was not taking his own pictures but rather take the time to go to each participant to see what and how they were shooting in the results they were getting. He then made suggestions of the participant wanted or taught more on how to make it a better image if needed. Very few of the instructors I’ve had to do that. I’ll be booking another workshop with Jeff very soon.

Bears, Glacier, Fall Colors Tour
A week in photography heaven !
Jeff Schultz’s Photo Workshop was absolutely Incredible. He Far Exceeded my anticipation of a Photo Workshop.
His meticulous planning to the details, needs of everyone and above all the accommodations and the meals (imagine that on a landscape photography) speaks volumes of his experience. It is immediately apparent that he is a very knowledgeable, kind, patient and a brilliant photographer. He imbibes his knowledge to you in such a manner that you feel it’s your own idea.
Unlike a lot of other leaders, who are busy loading their own portfolio at our expense, one never saw Jeff taking his own images. He was always with the group moving from one individual to the other. He was always giving positive suggestions.
The opportunities for Moose, Bears, Landscape were incredible and unlimited. The Helicopter (no doors) photography was breathtaking and an experience to savor. The environ at Crystal Lake felt like “A Piece of Heaven”.
If you or someone you know, likes this kind of photography, you should seriously consider Jeff Schultz Photography Expedition.
Thank You Jeff, for giving me an experience of a lifetime.

Bears, Glacier, Fall Colors Tour
Coming Back Again
I just spent the last week with Jeff on a photo tour. It was a fantastic time. We had great opportunity to photograph moose, bear, glaciers and great fall landscapes. Jeff has a great love for Alaska and it is contagious. we plan to find another chance to travel with Jeff to see more of Alaska and hone my photography skills.

Custom Photo Tour
An experience of a lifetime!
I just finished up at 2.5 day custom workshop with Jeff, and it was beyond incredible. I wish I could give this 10 stars instead of 5. Jeff was able to pack in all the things I wanted to capture (and more) and he was wonderful to work with from the start. I am a professional photographer, but I still managed to learn a lot from Jeff both about composition and camera technique. In such a short amount of time we saw coastal brown bears, eagles, salmon, moose, various types of birds, and landscapes galore. If you are looking for a once of a lifetime opportunity to create some breathtaking images then Jeff is your guy.
