Yukon Photo Tours – Our Philosophy
Yukon Photo Tours offers photography tours and wildlife viewing adventures intended to get you to the most scenic places and exceptional wildlife photography locations in Canada’s last undisturbed wilderness areas, the Yukon and also in Northern BC, the Northwest Territories and Alaska for a reasonable price with very small groups of like-minded photographers.
We offer strictly photo tours with the focus on Wildlife photography, Northern Lights photography and Landscape photography which are geared towards getting out and getting great shots. These tours are not workshops that place the focus on learning and photography instructions, however myself or one of the photo tour leaders will be photographing always alongside with you and will make sure that we will be at the best spots at the best times with the support and guidance of the tours operators we have chosen to work on this tours. If you do have photography-related questions, we will be always there to provide answers and advice throughout your tour.
With this in mind we have carefully chosen tour operators familiar with working with photographers and exactly know the special needs our clients have to get the best possible shots. We work only with selected, small personal companies and we have contracted these companies to book entire trips at their regular rates and pass these rates along to our customers with very little markup.
Yukon Photo Tours offers photo tours and wildlife viewing adventures for the enthusiast who wants to explore all that what the Yukon has to offer through their lens and each tour is specifically designed with our partners with the needs of the photographer in mind.
Wolfgang Bublitz – Owner and founder of Yukon Photo Tours
Wolfgang started photography 30 years ago and his knowledge is entirely self taught and he has never received any formal photographic training. The photo shooting for a multi-vision slide show led him in 1995 for the first time to the Yukon and Alaska and during this four month photo journey, he realized that the Yukon would eventually be his new home. The grandiose nature, the magnificent wildlife, native culture and the adventures stories of the Yukon have not released him since.
After he had he’s first outdoor and photography experiences in his native homeland Germany in the Black Forest and all over Scandinavia, he returned year after year to the Yukon and Alaska sometimes on month-long wilderness trips. In 1998 he started guiding as a canoe and hiking guide for local tour operators and on self organized wilderness tours throughout the Yukon and Alaska. Wolfgang made the Yukon he’s new home in 2009, he is also the co-owner and operator of Northern Lights Resort & SPA near Whitehorse, Yukon.
His goal with Yukon Photo Tours is to provide a small, personal-run company that offers great trips to great locations, working together with small but highly professional tour operators that are familiar with working with photographers and offering an outstanding service for a good price for the fellow photographer who wants to go on a fantastic and exciting trip with a good group of like minded people.
