Cambodia and Burma (Myanmar) 


Sorry, this is the page for our last trip. To learn more about our upcoming December trip:
December Myanmar trip with Angkor Wat extension.



Angkor Wat

Southeast Asia is one of the world's most exotic destinations, and one of the most photogenic. The great monument sites of Southeast Asia are unique in their variety and scale. Taken together, sites in Siem Reap (the Angkor Wat temple complex and surrounding sites) in Cambodia, along with Yangon, Bagan, and Mandalay in Burma (Myanmar) offer the opportunity of a lifetime to discover the legacy of several of the important cultures which form the Southeast Asian mosaic and to capture stunning images of lasting interest.

It seems like just yesterday, but 2011 will be my 12th year returning to the Cook Inlet in Alaska to photograph America's most spectacular animals.

Spending a week with Alaskan Coastal Brown Bears, often called Grizzlies, is truly a life-changing experience. Unlike the bears at Brooks Lodge in Katmai, which are stressed out and offer very limited viewing, we'll be able to see bears in their native and un-stressed environment.

One day the bears will be grazing on the nutrient rich grass and the next they'll be up to their shoulder digging in the mud for clams. Without question these are my favorite weeks of the year.

We'll have an entire small lodge to ourselves, and the bears are right in the area, so our shooting opportunities are maximized.
