    Adirondack High Peaks
    July 10-13, 2014 : The oldest mountains in the United States still get our juices flowing, especially when we venture into the High Peaks region. Our cameras will focus on gentle mountain streams, crashing waterfalls, peaceful secluded lakes and ponds and grand vistas as far as you can see.

    Glacier National Park, Montana
    July 10-14 : I am again offering this wonderful class on the east side of Glacier National Park based in St Mary. This is the best time to be in the park as the wildflowers are at their peak blooms in the meadows of scenic valleys like Many Glacier and St Mary. There will great opportunities to photograph large game such as moose, bighorn sheep, mountain goats and bears (from the safety of the road). If you havent been to Glacier before, now is the time. It is truly my favorite national park and basically in my backyard. I have been photographing the park for over 20 years and know it well. We will also spend an evening in nearby Browning for the annual North American Indian Days celebration where we will be able to photograph pow wow dancing in colorful regalia and capture a real fast moving rodeo. This class offers a great opportunity to sharpen and improve many aspects of photography skills. Though most of the locations are near the roads, be prepared for some hiking as that is when Glacier really reveals its beauty.

    Last year this workshop sold out rather quickly so make sure to register early to ensure your spot.

    2014 Alaska Whale-Watching Photo Expedition I
    July 11 - 18, 2014 : Imagine sitting on the deck of a private 60-foot boat off Alaskas coast. A humpback whale as long as a bus leaps out of the water nearby. Another whale swims by with her calf, touching fins in what looks to be a gesture of affection. Watch, photograph and get immersed in the experience with professional wildlife photographer Daniel J. Cox...

    Peek into the lives of these gentle giants as they migrate from their summer feeding grounds in the Arctic to winter breeding grounds around the equator. In addition to whales, well see glaciers and fantastic scenery, luminescent icebergs, sea birds, and plenty of other wildlife. We may see bald eagles, harbor seals, sea lions, Dalls porpoises and orca whales. Enjoy your summer in Alaska with Natural Exposures!

    Lake Clark National Park Coastal Brown Bear Tour
    July 21, 2014 to July 26, : Join me for 6-days/5-nights of photography at the historic Silver Salmon Creek Lodge of Coastal-living Brown Bears (Grizzlies). During this workshop we anticipate seeing females with one to three first-year cubs, possibility of females with second & third-year cubs, males & females w/cubs clamming and sedging. With a bit of luck we will see a female nursing her cubs. Salmon fishing does not normally occur during this time but the bears will be clamming along the tidal plain. Also included will be a trip to a nearby puffin rookery island  for a minimum  day of shooting.  

    Included with workshop is my Brown Bear Photo-Technique How-To Guide and Photoshop Techniques/Actions. This guide will cover those aspects of photographic technique that I find most important when photographing Coastal Brown Bears. Included are in-the-field techniques you should be using when photographing the bears and post-processing techniques I find useful.
