Preston Cavner

Your licensed Guide and Outfitter for the trip, Preston Cavner, has enjoyed living in the remote Alaska Bush and will show you firsthand this spectacular area where he and his wife live. Cavner has always loved the outdoors and naturally, chose the guiding occupation that presented him with a worldwide outdoor office. After first seeing the Lake Clark region, he knew from that moment that all trips would return here--a place that he calls home.


Cavner has vast knowledge and experience of the Lake Clark and Katmai area, whether it is from hiking through its majestic mountains, the hours spent in small bush planes flying over the area, or boating on the lakes, rivers, and ocean coastline that surround the peninsula. As a licensed Guide and Captain, he will navigate the group to a new and exciting location each day while overseeing all the events. He, along with his company Cavner and Julian Inc., will provide lodging, modes of transportation, experience in the area, appetizing meals that are well balanced and close to gourmet, and make sure that all the details of the workshop are attended to.

Both Cavner and Lockwood will be a great informative source on local wildlife, vegetation, mountain peaks, berries, history of the area and National Parks, and will help to give you a better understanding of this incredible area. From the first night orientation session to the end of the week, the trip will offer great instruction and photographic opportunities for landscape, scenery, and wildlife. With areas already chosen for incredible prospects in landscape and wildlife, you can be sure that your trip to Alaska will be amazing and unforgettable, and that you’ll have plenty of astonishing photographs at the weeks end! With the combination of both Cavner and Lockwood, this workshop will offer a great chance to gain more of the professionalism you desire and present an incredible environment to work on or polish your photography skills.
