Taming Inhospitable Camera Places w/ Pro Wildlife Photographer Dan M Lee

Professional photographer Dan M Lee specializes in adventure, outdoor, and wildlife photography, and often leads tours and photo workshops to Alaska. Originally from England, Dan has been based in NYC for several years.  You can learn more Dan's accomplished career in his Outex Ambassador page here.


Outex underwater housing co-founder JR joined Dan recently for an epic adventure covering 1,600 miles of Alaskan territory by land, sea, and air. The itinerary included stops in Anchorage, Seward, Homer, Talkeetna, Denali, and Valdez, with multiple stops and exploration in between.

This short video summary above highlights one of our boat outings from the port of Seward, on the southern side of the Kenai peninsula, just outside Kenai Fjords National Park. Dan used the Outex waterproof housings to protect all of the camera gear during the outing.

Birdwatching in Alaska with Outex and Dan M Lee

Alaska weather is notoriously fickle and can change dramatically in a manner of hours, in part due to the wild vastness of the Alaskan territories and an abundance of large bodies of water, dry air, and tall mountain ranges.  A simple drive down the Ken Peninsula may encompass sunshine in Anchorage, torrential rainfall by Cooper Landing, and snowfall in Seward near Ken Fjords National Park.

Dan is using a Sony A9II and A7R4, coupled with 70-200mm f/2.8 and 200-600mm f/5.6-6.3, as well as a Nikon Z7II with a 24-70mm f/2.8. The video shows the Outex Pro Kits used for all 3 cameras, with the Regular size for the Nikon camera/lens combo, and the Pro Kit Large with Tripod Add-On accessories for the A7R/70-200mm and the Pro Kit Large for the A9/200-600.

Pro photographer Dan M Lee uses Outex waterproof camera housings to protect his Nikon Z7II, Sony A9II, and Sony A7R4, along with various lenses; 14-24mm f/2.8, 24-70mm f/2.8, 70-200mm f/2.8, and 200-600mm f/5.6-6.3 during a wildlife photography tour in Alaska.  Environmental conditions can change quickly in Alaska, and you're often traveling in boats, water-landing planes, or trekking thru rough terrain.  So it's important to protect your camera gear from the elements.
