Moose Photography Tours & Workshops
Join wildlife photographer and certified Captain, Michael Bertelsen as he ventures into the heart of Algonquin Park's world renowned moose country. Experience moose photography at its best aboard a comfortable very stable boat with a flat floor and a shallow draft, perfect for photography. Once on our destination, your guide will use oars, push pole or electric motor enabling us to slip in quietly.
Capturing Sharp Images
The very stable wide bottomed boat with your monopod or tripod set up makes getting razor sharp images an easy task. Quick adjustments to camera direction is made using comfortable swivel seats mounted down the centerline of the boat to prevent movement.
Quality Not Quantity
Workshops are limited to a maximum of 4 people. This ensures that everyone's photographic needs will be addressed, giving the highest quality experience possible.
It is best to dress in layered clothing (temperatures range from a warm 20C to a chilly -3C). Rain coat and pants is a must have as is comfortable shoes, long pants, and warm jacket or sweater.

Our trip to Algonquin Park was all about
moose photography and it was truly awesome! The combination of Michael
Bertelsen and Algonquin Park is unbeatable... Michael's expertise and
non-invasive approach to wildlife gets you in close to the moose without
impacting their normal behavior, perfect for getting those special
images. The perspective from the boat is unique and provides a
background of the beautiful shoreline and trees as the moose indulge
endlessly on lily pads. We are already planning our next trip. Thanks
Michael for a great adventure, Larry K
Michael, Overdue in thanking you for your wonderful Loon\Moose
photo workshop last month. As you know I do a fair bit of wildlife &
landscape photography around North America, including attending a
number of well known workshops. My experience with you in Algonquin was
world class. Not only because of the scenery & wildlife but largely
because of your knowledge & enthusiasm. I am already making plans
for another trip with you. Thanks, Jack P
Contact Michael if you have further questions or to check availability and to request a booking.
