Travel to Denali National Park and Southeast Alaska with award-winning photographer Ralph A. Clevenger. Home to North America's tallest mountain, the scenery of Denali is punctuated by encounters with grizzly bears, moose, caribou, wolves, migrating birds and wildflowers. In contrast, Southeast Alaska contains the greatest diversity of habitats found along the entire Pacific Coast, with thousands of miles of islands, bays and coves providing homes for a myriad of shorebirds, waterfowl and marine mammals. Ralph will share his experiences photographing these dramatic landscapes and wildlife and will also talk about the photo gear he uses on his trips, how he deals with weather issues and other logistics that this wilderness environment presents.
Ralph has followed his passion for the natural world by specializing in location photography and video projects of eco-travel, environmental portraits, wildlife and undersea subjects. Ralph grew up on the coast of North Africa and began diving in the waters of the Mediterranean Sea at the age of 7 with his father. He eventually went on to study zoology at San Diego State University and worked as a diver/biologist for the Scripps Institution of Oceanography in La Jolla, California before attending Brooks Institute of Photography in Santa Barbara, California. Ralph is the author of Photographing Nature, published by New Riders and has traveled throughout the world on assignment. Ralph’s stock images are represented worldwide by Corbis Images.
