Alaska Coastal Photography Adventure

  • Basecamp Retreat
  • Active adventure
  • 6 days; 5 nights
  • 4 to 6 travelers
  • Homer

Come join us as we explore the incredible coastal wilderness of Alaska. We'll visit places most locals only dream of during our voyage aboard the reinvented fishing vessel m/v Milo. This mind numbing (no it's not that cold, just beautiful!) wilderness was what inspired your photography coach/instructor to start his career as a commercial photographer 20 years ago. It's hard for photos to do this adventure justice, but with Scott Dickerson's help you'll likely bring home your best photographs ever. This trip is a one way journey between the small coastal communities of Homer and Seward, Alaska. Favorite sights include calving glaciers, towering granite cliffs, bird rookeries, whales, mountain goats, and bears. And that's all without getting out of the galley. You'll also enjoy exploring trackless beaches and surfing or paddleboarding, hiking, free diving etc. Throughout each day's sites and activities you'll receive tips about your photography goals. At the end of the day you'll have a photography critique and coaching session to review the days images. Besides landscapes and wildlife you'll also have the opportunity to work on outdoor lifestyle imagery so your friends will look amazing on instagram. Trust me, they'll be thanking you.

Scott Dickerson

Photography and Alaska's wilderness coastline are a match made in heaven. I realized this at a young age while commercial fishing. I was overwhelmed with the natural beauty surrounding me and yearned to share it with the world. I've been following this passion and have made it my career for the last 20 years. After much success licensing the publication of my photography I decided it was time to share more than just my photographs. Now you have the chance to learn the techniques, equipment, and creative approaches I've taken to make my images. The m/v Milo is literally a dreamboat for photography. Many of my most successful images used by magazines, and companies worldwide were taken from my many adventures aboard the Milo. There is no better way to experience Alaska. Trust me, I've done them all.
