Let Nick know some details from the questions below so he has a better understanding on what you are looking for to plan your trip to best meet your needs.
Remarkable Adventures is only one person. May be out in the mountains and unable to respond quickly, will respond as soon as possible.
Booking option: Inquire about having a professional photographer join your custom trip. Ralph Kristopher with AK Adventure Photos is the man for the job. If Ralph is unavailable Nick may be able to get another good photographer friend to do the Job. Nick enjoys taking photos and is happy to share with you what he may take; however being the guide is priority number one and he can't do what a true professional photographer can do.
