It's time to check off another line item on your bucket list. With pleasure I invite you to join me in remote coastal Katmai National Park for 7 nights in mid-September, 2020 to photograph brown bears chasing salmon.
 
Arrangements have been made with a highly-respected, long-term (over 2 decades) coastal Katmai NP boat operator to host our group. After a 1-hour floatplane flight from Kodiak, AK, we will set down on a remote coastal Katmai NP bay where we will be met by a skiff and shuttled to the "Ursus", the original "Time Bandit" boat from the TV show Deadliest Catch, our home for the week. This is a solid ship that I've had the privilege of staying on and the Katmai NP bays we will be visiting are incredible (Geographic and Kukak Bays for example). While we will be boat-based (extremely convenient in this location), the skiff will transport us to the shores of the salmon streams where we will get up close and personal with the bears while photographing them. The amount of time allocated for this trip means that the ship can move from bay to bay, targeting the best salmon runs and providing variety in our images.
 
The Ursus
 
The September timeframe is ideal for bears looking good with new coats and a huge size, up roughly 40% from August. The lighting is softer at this time of the year with a low angle ideal that is ideal for photography. Also, the number of dark hours is adequate for a decent night of sleep while still taking advantage of the ideal lighting hours. Humpback/pink, chum/keta/dog, and sometimes sockeye/silver salmon, a bear favorite, run at this time of the year. There are no promises that we will see wolves, but this time of the year holds an increased chance of this encounter.
 
Float Plane
 
Plan on hanging out with a small group that shares your passion for wildlife photography in a spectacularly scenic location. Note that this is not Katmai NP's popular Brooks Falls where there is often a waiting line to get onto the observation deck.
 
When and Where
 
Thu, September 17 to Thu, September 24, 2020 in remote coastal Katmai National Park, Alaska.
 
Who
 
Hopefully you, along with up-to-7 other participants. Sign up with your friends!
 
Cost
 
The cost for the 7-night Kodiak-to-Kodiak trip is $7,695 per person plus crew tips. Meals are included. Email me at Bryan@Carnathan.com to sign up or ask questions!
 
Shaking Brown Bear, Katmai National Park, Alaska
 
What are We Photographing?
 
Our primary photo subject will be brown bears. Wildlife, by definition, is "wild" and that means it is unpredictable and there can be no guarantees. That said, coastal Katmai National Park is an extremely reliable location to photograph brown bears and, as mentioned, the bears should be chasing salmon in the small streams at this time of the year.
 
In addition to brown bear, we could see other animals including sea otters, whales, and potentially even wolves. We will be opportunistic and take advantage of any interesting subjects that we encounter – and discovering those moments are part of the excitement. In addition to the immersive wildlife photography experience, there will certainly be opportunity for some landscape photography. The views from the boat are awesome.
 
Brown Bears and Epic Katmai National Park Landscape
 
Tour/Workshop/Adventure/Expedition
 
While the implied definitions of these terms vary, I see "workshops" typically laid out with a planned schedule and "tours" typically designed to put you in front of subjects at the right time. I'm calling this trip a "tour" because the primary goal is for you to get great images and we will be opportunistic in that regard, making a firm schedule difficult to implement. That said, we will spend a lot of time together and I will teach (including as we are actively photographing), answer questions (please bring many), critique images, assist in editing, etc. throughout our time together. Thus, the educational element will also be a primary part of our time together – an "Instructional Photo Tour".
 
In the field, we will photograph side-by-side. You taking great images home will be a primary goal, but you capturing those images yourself is important and I can best describe what you should do if I am doing it myself at the same time. This also provides the participant opportunity to watch how it is done. Your constant feedback and questions during the IPT are important and will enable me to provide you with the best experience possible.
 
An "expedition" is another type of immersive photography experience and this event involves multiple daily mini-expeditions. Certain is that we will have an adventure.
 
Physical Requirements
 
This will be an only modestly strenuous trip, with much of the strain dependent on the size and weight of the gear you are carrying. Sometimes the hike from the skiff to the bears will be short and sometimes we might eventually end up as far as (roughly) a mile up the streams. Thus, one needs to be in reasonable physical condition.
 
What is Included
 
From Kodiak and back to Kodiak, all food and lodging (on the boat) is provided. In the boat's current configuration, lodging is two bunks per room and two rooms per bathroom.
 
What is Not Included
 
Transportation to/from Kodiak and any lodging prior to or post trip. Note that flights to Kodiak are typically out of Anchorage.
 
Tips for the crew are not included.
 
Brown Bears Fighting, Katmai National Park, AK
 
Schedule
 
The schedule may vary, but a typical day looks like this: We will wake up in the morning, eat breakfast, slip into waders (hip waders provided, bringing your own chest waders is a better option), board the skiff with our gear, and, along with a bear guide, will head for the streams holding both salmon and bears. Typically, we come back to the boat for lunch and go back out for another round of photography later in the day. Staying out all day is an option we can request.
 
Cancellation Policy
 
Please note: travel insurance is very strongly recommended for this trip. While the operator has had "only three trip cancellations in the past twenty-two years due to weather (guests didn't schedule buffer days)", they "cannot accept liability for costs incurred due to weather or other forces of nature." They are "a small company, servicing relatively few clients each season, and the nature of [their] trip presents some variables over which [they] have no control." Safety comes first. If conditions are not safe, they don't fly. Allowing some flexibility in travel (buffer days) is highly recommended in this part of Alaska.
 
This trip will fall under the operator's booking guidelines as follows:
 
To reserve your space, a 50% deposit (not refundable unless your reserved space can be rebooked) of trip price within 10 days of verbal confirmation of your desired dates. Final payment is required 90 days prior to trip departure date. Reservations made within 90 days of trip departure dates require full payment. Credit card payments are welcome. Cancellation fees are in effect. Anyone requiring a different payment plan can ask about the Custom Pay Plan.

Camera Gear Needed
 
Aside from a great attitude and a strong interest in wildlife photography, you are going to need some gear and while most cameras with a telephoto lens will work fine, mid-upper-grade gear should be considered for best results from this event.
 
There will be times when a fast frame rate is beneficial (bears chasing salmon for example), but I will likely opt for higher resolution cameras that typically do not have the fastest-available frame rates. A DSLR camera or a late-model MILC (Mirrorless Interchangeable Lens Camera) should be in your bag.
 
A telephoto lens or lenses will be needed with a full-frame equivalent of at least 400mm (250mm on an APS-C) suggested and having longer focal lengths available will be appreciated at times (full frame 600mm equivalent is ideal and a 1.4x may even be appreciated behind this lens). Wide apertures are often an advantage, especially on dark days, and the wide aperture's ability to blur the background can be useful. Any telephoto lens can work, but there may be times when an f/4 or wider aperture is preferred. This is a great event to break out your big lenses for and it is also a great time to try a new one, perhaps via renting.
 
My current plan is to take a pair of high-resolution cameras such as the Canon EOS 5Ds R along with a 600mm lens such as the Canon EF 600mm f/4L IS III USM Lens (probably along with a Black Rapid shoulder strap to carry it with) and a telephoto zoom lens such as the Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II USM Lens for my primary wildlife kit. In this location, I plan to carry both setups in a MindShift Gear FirstLight 40L.
 
We will sit together in a line on small folding stools while photographing streamside and a strong tripod with a gimbal head is ideal. I'll leave my backpack on the ground/sand beside me (on a garbage bag to keep it clean) with the second camera and lens ready to grab when the bears get too close for the big lens (expect them to get very close at times).
 
Bring some basic landscape photography gear.
 
Bring adequate memory card capacity, enough batteries to last at least a day and enough chargers to restore that capability overnight. Bringing a laptop is highly recommended, enabling review of your images throughout the time we have together. Bring an external hard drive (or multiple of them) for an additional level of backup. Bring a flashlight.
 
Consider what failure of any piece of gear means for your experience and consider bringing a backup for items identified as critical.
 
As always, feel free to ask us for gear advice.
 
Weather / Clothing
 
The weather in Katmai in late September is typically very nice, though cool and sometimes even cold (mostly mornings and late evenings). Dressing in layers is the best plan. Rain protection may be required at times, including rain covers for camera gear while in the field.
 
The wildlife we are pursuing is acclimated to humans and does not seem to care what we are wearing. Thus, camo clothing is not necessary. Just in case you were wondering, bears think salmon taste much better than people.

Huge Brown Bear, Katmai National Park, Alaska
I've just returned from an awesome 17-day trip to Colorado, hanging with some great people, and taking (more than) a few pictures. As I began unpacking, I thought I'd keep track of what I removed and share with you what was in my backpacks for this trip.
 
While leading photography workshops was my primary purpose for being in Colorado, I can instruct best when I am shooting myself. Those, I needed gear appropriate for what we were photographing — wildlife and landscape. As this site is also a higher priority than my personal photography, I needed to do field testing of as much new gear as possible at the same time.
 
Flying meant my gear was limited to what would fit in my max-airline-dimensions checked bag, a carry-on, and a personal item. My photo trip packing strategy is to put the items with the most value (both financially and for the shoot) and the items most sensitive to damage in my carry-on and personal item camera backpacks that go with me onto the plane. Unless my checked bag is under the 50 lb weight limit (it seldom is and the bag I checked for this trip registered exactly 50.0 lbs on the scale), I'm also interested in putting the densest (think metal) items in my carry-on and personal item packs (I've not yet had these bags weighed for domestic USA flights).
 
The MindShift Gear FirstLight 40L and MindShift Gear BackLight 18L are my current favorite camera backpacks for travel. The larger pack goes on my back with the waist belt tightened enough for the weight to be supported on my waist — not my shoulders. The smaller pack goes on in reverse direction — a front pack — with the waist belt clipped around the front of the case (to get it out of the way). Here is the list of what is (or was) in the two backpacks along with some interspersed reasoning:

Camera gear in the checked bag included:

  • Really Right Stuff TVC-24L Mk2 Carbon Fiber Tripod. As already mentioned, the larger lenses were supported on a monopod most of the time, leaving the tripod needs to landscape purposes and this model was perfect for that use — light and solid.
  • Really Right Stuff MC-34 Carbon Fiber Monopod
  • 3 LensCoat camera rain covers
  • 4 battery chargers — 2 for each camera brand. These mission-critical items were in my carry-on on the flight out, but they had reduced value to me on the return flight (they could easily be replaced). Being relatively light, I put them in my checked bag and moved heavier items to the backpacks. I needed to remove enough weight from the checked bag for the Sony a7R IV box to be packed home. Yes, having the original box helps with resale value — it is psychologically important to some and therefore monetarily important to me.
  • BlackRapid Breathe Sport Camera Strap (I opt for the "Left" model for big lenses) with a Really Right Stuff B2-FABN Screw-Knob Clamp.

Note that all of the links in this post lead to reviews on this site or the product pages of our affiliate retailers. Hopefully you have found this information at least entertaining and watching me carry the gear through the airport is probably even more so.

From Sigma:
 
2019.10.04 – SIGMA Corporation is pleased to announce the upcoming launch of interchangeable lenses for the Canon EF-M mount digital camera series with APS-C image sensors. SIGMA will gradually introduce the lenses as members of the Contemporary line.
 
The new Canon EF-M mount models will feature a newly and exclusively developed control algorithm that optimizes the autofocus drive and maximizes the data transmission speed. In addition, these lenses will be compatible with Servo AF and lens aberration correction.
 
The lineup will include the Contemporary line set of three prime lenses 16mm, 30mm, and 56mm. While retaining the compact, lightweight and outstanding image quality concepts of the Contemporary line, this new large-aperture lens series covering from wide to mid-tele angle provides the amount of bokeh and admirable brightness expected from F1.4 to be enjoyed on Canon EF-M mount cameras.
 
Key features
 
  • Impressively compact construction with image quality rivaling SIGMA’s Art line.
    To achieve such a compact construction, the lens design is considered based on the capabilities of the camera body function to correct peripheral light amount and distortion. A compactness and lightweight construction combined with superb image quality is achieved.
  • Smooth AF ideal for video shooting
    The combination of optical design for video AF and use of the stepping motor enables smooth and quiet autofocus. This lens is also compatible with the camera’s Face + Tracking AF.
  • Data loaded for compatibility with in-camera aberration correction
    The lenses will be fully compatible* with in-camera aberration correction, which includes corrections for peripheral illumination, chromatic aberrations and distortion. By matching corrections to the optical characteristics of the lens, this function takes image quality to an even higher level.
  • Available Mount Conversion Service
    This service converts the mount of SIGMA lenses to that of a different camera body, allowing photographers to continue using their favorite lenses over the long term regardless of camera system.
* Only when the camera is compatible.
 
EF-M Mount Models
 
  • SIGMA 16mm F1.4 DC DN | Contemporary
  • SIGMA 30mm F1.4 DC DN | Contemporary
  • SIGMA 56mm F1.4 DC DN | Contemporary
Mount Conversion Service is available to convert other mounts of SIGMA 16mm F1.4 DC DN | Contemporary, SIGMA 30mm F1.4 DC DN | Contemporary and SIGMA 56mm F1.4 DC DN | Contemporary for Canon EF-M mount. In order to apply for the service, please contact your nearest authorized SIGMA subsidiary or distributor.

From Canon UK:
 
United Kingdom, Republic of Ireland, Wednesday 25 September 2019 – Canon Europe announces the highly anticipated successor to the hugely popular EOS M100 - the Canon EOS M200. Upgrades to this mirrorless camera include the latest Canon DIGIC 8 processor, improved autofocus and the addition of 4K movie. Complete with a guided user interface, boundless creative functions and vertical movie shooting, it has never been easier to step up from a smartphone and start sharing stand-out images and video with the world.
 
Capture sharp and striking images effortlessly
 
Superior storytelling is made effortless with the Canon EOS M200. Its guided user interface is perfect for first-time camera users, with useful on-screen guidance as well as hints and tips on how to get the best results. The camera’s APS-C sized 24.1 megapixel sensor is larger than that of a typical smartphone, producing highly detailed images that look sharp and striking, even when cropped or enlarged for sharing on social media.
 
The camera features Dual Pixel CMOS AF - a Canon-developed technology that delivers professional-looking movies and images, by keeping moving subjects in sharp focus with a pleasing background blur – perfect for capturing pin-sharp memories at a party, festival or concert with low-light AF sensitivity down to EV-4. The addition of Eye Detection AF also makes capturing the natural expressions of friends and family simple, by automatically maintaining focus on a subject’s eyes.
 

The introduction of Canon’s latest processor, DIGIC 8, delivers new functionality as well as great quality. With a maximum ISO speed of 100-25600 (extending to ISO 51200 equivalent), DIGIC 8 guards against image blur and reduces image noise when shooting in darker locations, such as a bar or music venue.
 
DIGIC 8 also adds a new dimension to storytelling, powering 4K movie for the highest level of movie clarity. The Canon EOS M200 takes the storytelling potential one step further with a 4K time-lapse feature and the ability to take 4K stills from 4K movies, perfect for capturing memories in detail.
 
The LCD touchscreen on the Canon EOS M200 flips 180 degrees, helping elevate selfies beyond what is achievable with a smartphone. The camera’s Self Portrait mode also allows settings such as background blur and brightness to be easily adjusted in real time. A first on an EOS camera, the movie record button is displayed on the touchscreen when in Movie Mode, ideally positioned for easy operation when recording a vlog with the screen tilted 180 degrees. Movies can even be recorded and played back on mobile in a vertical orientation so they are optimised for sharing on social media after they are captured.
 
Unlock your creativity:
 
The Canon EOS M200 features an array of settings and tools empowering those stepping up from a smartphone to capture memories in artistic and imaginative ways. It includes Canon’s Creative Assist feature, a suite of effects, filters and colour adjustment tools to apply to photographs when composing an image or after it has been taken. It is also possible to add effects to the photos taken, just like a photo app, with a range of creative filters including Grainy black & white, Fish-eye and Soft Focus.
 
Compatibility with the affordable and creative range of EF-M lenses expands the potential of the Canon EOS M200 even further. A variety of image expressions are made possible with wide-angle, telephoto and macro lenses EF-M lenses and the entire EOS lens range can be accessed with an EF-EOS M Mount Adapter.
 
Share special moments anywhere, anytime
 
Once content has been captured, customised and is ready to be shared with the world, the Canon EOS M200 connects seamlessly with smart devices¹ via Bluetooth² and Wi-Fi using the free Canon Camera Connect app for iOS and Android. From here, images and videos can be downloaded, reviewed and shared manually. Images can also be automatically sent to a smart device as they are taken. As long as the camera is in Bluetooth range, a constant connection to a smart device can be maintained, even when the camera is switched off.
 
The Canon Camera Connect app also facilitates shooting remotely with a smartphone or tablet, perfect for capturing group shots or a hands-free selfie.
 
Stylish and compact for everyday use:
 
The Canon EOS M200 is a compact and lightweight camera that can be conveniently carried anywhere. Weighing just 299g (including battery and memory card), it is perfect for daily use as it takes up limited bag space. It is also sleek and stylish in appearance, available in black or white with a high-quality crosshatch leather pattern. The Canon EOS M200’s appearance can even be customised with a range of colourful face jackets to complement a variety of outfits.
 
Incredibly simple, simply incredible, the Canon EOS M200 will be available from Canon’s online store and official Canon retailers from October 2019.
 
Pricing and availability:
 
The Canon EOS M200 will be available from October 2019 with an RSP of £499.99 / €569.99.

From Sekonic:
 
Tokyo, Japan – Sekonic Corporation, Light Meter Sales Department, has announced that the new firmware for SPECTROMASTER C-800-U is available.
 
The C-800-U SPECTROMASTER is the industry-leading handheld spectrometer for cinematographers and photographers around the world. Sekonic strives to keep this meter on the cutting edge of technology and works with top lighting manufacturers, standards organizations, and organizations such as The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, Science and Technology Council to keep the C-800-U the most relevant tool for cinematographers and photographers.
 
The newest firmware will update the TM-30 metric from TM-30-15 to TM-30-18, which Rf is identical with Rf of CIE 224:2017, international standard. This is a standard that many feel will replace CRI (Ra) as a more accurate way to measure the color fidelity (Rf) because TM-30 measures 99 colors chosen from more than 100,000 measured objects vs CRI's 8 colors. TM-30 also measures gamut (Rg) which helps the user better understand how saturated colors will look.
 
This recent firmware update also shows the CCT, LB and CC properties of a preset when chosen in the Tool Box under the Preset Selection menu.
 
C-800-U firmware update can be done by C-800-U Utility, downloadable from the Sekonic website.
