Shetzer’s photography specializes in one-of-a-kind wildlife photography workshops in some of the world’s most breathtaking locations. Our professional expertise and small-group philosophy allows us to cater to each individual’s photography goals while capturing stunning images of spectacular animals in their natural habitat.



Grizzly Bear Photo WorkshopJoin award-winning wildlife photographer Matt Shetzer for a trip of a lifetime on our grizzly bear photo workshops in the pristine environment of Lake Clark National Park, Alaska.

During the grizzly bear photo workshops, you will capture stunning images of grizzly bears in their natural habitat and perfect your wildlife photography skills while enjoying the picturesque setting of the Alaskan wilderness. Guests on the grizzly bear photo workshops will be immersed in the region’s spectacular scenic beauty, photographing coastal brown bears while enjoying home-cooked meals and staying in an exclusive and strategically-located lodge, where bears can often be seen just outside the deck.


Hummingbird Photo WorkshopsExplore the vibrant rainforests of Ecuador with us during our 8-day hummingbird photo workshops and learn specialized techniques to create stunning images of hummingbirds as they feast on native flowers.

Over the course of the hummingbird photo workshops, we will journey over mountain passes and across the equator into lush rainforests to three different bird lodges.

Each destination we stop at is home to unique species of hummingbirds and a diversity of flowers, giving you the opportunity to create your own exclusive portfolio of exotic hummingbird images.



Bald Eagle Photo WorkshopsJoin us in capturing the majesty of America’s national bird at the Chilkat Bald Eagle Preserve during the largest bald eagle migration in the world. Our bald eagle photo workshops are centered on the more than 3,000 bald eagles in southeast Alaska that congregate from far and wide to feast upon salmon during the last major run of the season.

Every bit of the 48,000 acre Chilkat Preserve is inhabited by the American Bald Eagle at some point during the year. But a unique natural phenomenon attracts a breathtaking amount of birds to the picturesque landscape near Haines, Alaska in the early winter months.
