Join Aurora Explorers Marv Heston and Ken Sklute in Fairbanks, AK to photograph the dancing lights of the Aurora Borealis. The natural phenomenon of the Northern Lights provides astrophotographers with opportunities to photograph the night sky with colorful displays of green, pink and violet. You will quickly see why Aurora Borealis has been called Nature’s theater.
Ken and Marv will take you out each evening for an adventure chasing the Aurora and provide on-location instruction on how to capture this celestial wonder creatively. Of course we are at the mercy of the weather and the cloud cover. The September trip is a wonderful time to visit as our team has many beautiful locations to choose from since the area has not yet frozen over. This is the time to be comfortable outside at night and use the reflections of the many lakes, rivers and streams for spectacular compositions!
The March trip is a remarkable experience as we often get to photograph mush dog races, visit Denali National Park, shoot images of colorful ice sculptures and many other daylight adventures all depending upon our nighttime Aurora chases! Marv and Ken make every effort to find open skies in order to provide you the ability to capture magnificent imagery.
