Trip Details:



We are stoked to announce Moment Trips: a new way for you and your friends to travel and enjoy Moment. On a Moment Trip, you can be sure you’ll travel to the most incredible places on earth, test your limits, and learn photography from the very best. This will be an experience you’ll be talking about for years to come.

That’s why, for our first trip, we’ve chosen Juneau, Alaska. Nestled on the Alaskan panhandle, it’s America’s most remote capital city -- inaccessible by road. Surrounded by mountains, rainforests, glaciers, and pristine waterways, it is a stunning visual feast that you can only visit by plane or boat.

We’ll begin our adventure in the quaint downtown area before exploring its surroundings by foot, tramway, kayak, and even helicopter. We’ll rappel into ice caves, explore abandoned mining settlements, and improve our photo skills with landscape, portraits, and wildlife.




Your Teacher:


Our itinerary is unreal! And so is our trip leader, Dan Rubin. Dan is a designer, photographer, and creative director based in London. In addition to helping startups and established brands solve design problems, he travels the world on photographic commissions for American Express, Barbour, Ducati, Land Rover, O2, RedBull, Starwood Hotels, Travel + Leisure, Williams Martini, and more. Dan is no stranger to destination workshops having led a successful workshop similar to this in the Faroe Islands last year. Dan will be sharing his vast knowledge of landscape photography that’s made him a highly sought after creative. Learn more about Dan by visiting his website and Instagram @danrubin.
