Griz & Wolf Adventure ’14

In my thirty years, I have never been to such a magical location or magnificent place to be with and photograph grizzly bears! This very unique piece of private property provides opportunities you will find NOWHERE else on Katmai (why Disney was there for ten weeks in 2013). The Adventure is 08-13 August, 2014. We are going these dates because they are the best for photographing both the griz and wolves salmon fishing. This is biology rarely seen, but at Hallo Bay, something we can count on. It is something you WILL have UP CLOSE and personal. The price is $6995 and includes photo instruction and bear guide, roundtrip airfare from Homer, AK to/from the lodge, wilderness camp lodging for 5 nights plus meals while at the lodge. We are only taking 5 photographers on this wilderness adventure. There is one spot available. Give Sharon a call 760.924.8632 / 661.204.1506 if you can join us on a once in a lifetime adventure. We won’t be going back until...

Keep in mind the answers are just my $.02 worth and you have to take what works for you and embrace it and ignore the rest. So here’s this weeks questions …. Moose A year ago I bought a Nikon D-800 that I was happy with although the pictures weren’t tack sharp. Later I bought a 24-70 f2.8 which also wasn’t sharp. Took the camera and lens to the local camera shop and they told me that even using the maximum AFA fine tuning it was still off. I returned the lens. Later bought the 80-400 Nikon and couldn’t get a tack sharp photo. Bottom line-send the camera to Nikon and now it is tack sharp. Question-What do you do when getting new equipment to ensure that it is functioning properly and focusing accurately? Do you just shoot...
