David,
You will have to travel with a guide that is provided by the lodge, as part of the package. If you are with a photo workshop you will be with 5,6 or 8 others depending on the group size. If you go as we did (a couple) you will be considered a "single" and will have a guide all to yourself .... much better in my opinion.

We live 20 minutes from the Great Smoky Mountain National Park .... annual # of visitors = 9 million Lake Clark NP # of annual visitors = 9,000

The only way to get there is by small plane or boat

Can you send me a link that could give me an idea as to what it would cost to travel with a guide like you did? That sounds like an ideal way to do it.

David, I viewed the photos provided by your link and would wager that you would fall in love with Denali just as I have and all of Alaska actually. We took our 2nd trip to Alaska this past Sept, starting in Fairbanks and ending in Vancouver, Denali was the high light of our trip IMO. The Grizzlies in Denali are not as large as the coastal bears but the background scenery is awesome. We also saw Sheep, many Moose and Caribou, Eagles, waterfowl and the landscapes are endless.
If you would have any questions about the route we traveled and our transportation I would be glad to answer them, just send me a PM.
There have been many other great suggestions made too, it is difficult to go wrong in Alaska if your passion is shooting Wildlife and Landscapes.

Otherwise, any other suggestions are welcome and appreciated.

Kruger park in South Africa. You will be there in their winter dry season. It is without doubt our favorite summer destination. You can rent a car and drive yourself or, sign onto a photographic safari.

Avoid general tourist safaris where they pack a dozen or so folks to a truck. :(

One thing for sure is you will NEVER forget your flight out of Lake Clake NP. I think our single engine cesna was making at best 40mph considering the 50 mph head wind...it took forever to get to and through the pass. This was via Lake Clarke Air. The pilot spent most of the flight looking out the side window and pointing out brown bear fishing the river. For stunning vistas the flight in and out is nonpareil. We contrasted it with the stark black and white landscape of the flight a week prior into Kaktovik and there is just no comparison.
