Alaska trip II. Partners, advice ? : LUSENET : Large format photography : One Thread

I will be returning to Alaska this June to explore the coastal national parks (sorry, I have been too busy to write a report about last year's trip, but I promise to make good before the end of this year :-)). I plan to visit, in this order, Glacier Bay, Lake Clark, Kenai Fjords, Katmai. I'll try to do a few wildlife shots, but my main interest is photographing the landscape with a LF camera.

First, since most of the travel and photography would be done in very isolated wilderness areas, for the sake of safety I am looking for fellow photographers who would be interested in joining for parts of the trip.

Second, I'd like to hear about suggestions with respect to those locations. I've done a fair amount of research, but I am still unsure about the most photogenic parts of the parks and the logistics of getting there with a load of large format equipment.

Try those volcano areas. About 50 miles southwest of the capital. A good day trip. Have fun!

Can't go this time around, but if you do something similar in about 4 years, count me in. In the mean time, good luck with this and future trips.

If you were leaving in the next few weeks, I would be able to join. Being between jobs is the most refreshing experience. Time to hone my LF skills over the next month, until my next job starts.
