Discovery Photo is an actual photo account of two Central California
business men who team up to explore the wild and magical waterways of
Alaska from a 14 foot inflatable Zodiac.Our
love and respect for the outdoors have lead us to avoid the traditional
cruises and guided charters. Our goal is to experience the raw and powerful
essence of nature and interface with the rough and ready residents of
this great frontier. Over the last few years, we've taken hundreds of
photos and dozens of hours of broadcast quality video to share these
rare moments with you. We hope you enjoy our web site as we strive to
provide you with affordable photographs, interesting stories, valuable
information and links to the great Alaska adventure.
Months of extensive
planning includes purchasing appropriate gear and gathering information
on the area from numerous sources such as the Forest Service and the
locals, often via the Internet. We air cargo our gear to a designated
small Alaska community, inflate the Zodiac, uncrate the gear, store
the crates, repack the gear and head for the wilderness for weeks at
Once we establish
base camp, we take trips of 2 to 3 days in length traveling the waterways
stopping to observe frequently. Space is an extreme premium reserved
for our gear. Packing little food, our diet is mostly fish and berries
with a few snacks we bring.
titled Iceberg 65 was taken at Tracy Arm Alaska. The winds and tides
have shaped this piece of ice into floating modern art.
On these expeditions, we must be alert and be prepared for all types
of weather. We are totally on our own and usually outside of radio range
where it could take days to get help. Of the small communities we visited,
about all that was available for purchase was gasoline. None the less,
the scenery, the wildlife, the extreme silence, the physical challenge
and total exhilaration of it all is worth every wet and chilling moment.
These are once in a lifetime glimpses of wildlife wonders and spectacular
scenery most only see on the Discovery Channel. We hope you enjoy them
as much as we do.

I have traveled all over the world for exploration and adventure and
it never ceases to amaze me how honest and refreshing nature really
