Alaska Adventure (full/waiting list)
April 27 - May 4. Adventure from $5,499
There are a several reasons why I keep running workshop to Alaska with Light Photographic Workshops: great wildlife and scenery photo ops, great boat with gourmet food 24/7 and I enjoy teaching with Hal Schmitt, director of Light.
I hope to see you on board. We make great pictures and have a ton of fun!

Want to find the best light on a workshop? Check out my latest app for your iPhone and iPad running iOS 6 or greater: Rick Sammon's Photo Sundial – the all-in-one app that gives you the sun, the stars, the moon - and much more. Never miss another sunrise or sunset again.
The app is great for on-site shooting, as well as for trip planning. Twenty-five photo tips, too!
Hey, if you find a better priced and more fully-featured sun-finder app, please let me know.
Here's a movie I made on photographing sunrises and sunsets.
