POLAR BEARS OF SVALBARD

July 25th - August 4th, 2017

In July 2017 I am leading a very exciting expedition to the pack ice north of Svalbard to photograph Polar Bears living and hunting on the sea ice. This expedition has been designed to provide the very best possible opportunities to Photograph Polar Bears in their natural environment. With the reduction in Arctic sea ice the Polar Bears in Svalbard are dwindling in number and the number of years left to photograph them is unfortunately limited. Late July and August are the ideal times to photograph Polar Bears north of Svalbard due to the dwindling ice around the archipelago. On this expedition we will be carrying a naturalist/biologist who specialises in locating Polar Bears and an expedition leader and captain who has years of experience in placing us in the ideal position to make the best photographs. Their expertise will allow us to approach the king of the Arctic as closely and safely as possible and make incredible photographs under wonderful polar light. The expedition is for a strictly limited number of just 12 participants plus leader and is dedicated to the photography of Polar Bears living and hunting on the sea ice. Our intention is to sail directly north from the small town of Longyearbyen in Svalbard to approximately 80 degrees North to the very edge of the permanent pack ice. At our northerly most point we will likely be less than 600 miles from the North Pole. We will be using the ice hardened expedition ship M.S Origo which will enable us to skirt the edge of the pack ice searching for and photographing Polar Bears. M.S Origo is widely regarded as the best ship in the Arctic for Polar Bear Photography. With low decks and operable portholes a mere 50cm above the water line we can photograph at eye level with wild Polar Bears. Our expedition ship is also equipped with sufficient zodiacs and crew for all photographers to be shooting simultaneously with plenty of room to spare for camera equipment - So bring what you need! On this expedition we will also likely photograph Walrus, Seals, Whales, Arctic Foxes and the many Arctic sea birds including the rare and angelic Ivory Gull. To get an idea of the sort of wildlife photographs you can take on this expedition please visit the Svalbard portfolio on this website. All of the Polar Bear photographs on this website were taken from the very same ship we will be utilising for this expedition.

GREENLAND EAST COAST EXPEDITION

September 12th - September 22nd, 2017

Good friend and Pro Nature Photographer Daniel Bergmman and I have teamed up with one of Greenland’s most experienced expedition leaders, for a unique and very special expedition to photograph the incredible landscapes of the Scoresby Sund fjord system on the remote East Coast of Greenland. Greenland is an incredible place to inspire the imagination and fuel your photographic desires. Home to some of the most extraordinary geology to be found on earth, the red and orange glacial scarred landscape of Greenland stands in stark contrast to the electric blue icebergs that carve off its many glaciers and drift slowly down its spectacular fjords. It is a remote land of untamed and unbridled beauty that is rarely visited and even less rarely photographed. The landscape and geology of the East Coast of Greenland is both stunning and extraordinary. Photographing this incredible landscape under soft golden Arctic light will be our main objective. We will also see and photograph incredible castellated icebergs that have calved off the many glaciers of Greenland. We will also search for walrus and the other wildlife of the region. Dramatic glaciers, plunging cliffs and beautiful drift ice formations will be present as well. The expedition is for a limited number of approximately 16 participants plus leaders and is dedicated to the photography of Greenland landscapes. Our intention is to fly from Iceland to the remote East Coast of Greenland where we will board our expedition ship and spend the next ten days exploring and photographing in the worlds largest and most spectacular fjord system - Scoresby Sund. We will be using the schooner ship the Rembrandt Van Rijn, which will enable us to explore the fjord system and get close to giant icebergs. Our expedition ship is also equipped with sufficient zodiacs and crew for all photographers to be shooting simultaneously with plenty of room to spare for camera equipment - So bring what you need! This is a unique opportunity to join two professional Nature photographers, Joshua Holko and Daniel Bergmann, along with one of Greenland’s most experienced expedition leaders, on a once in a lifetime expedition to the remote East Coast of Greenland to photograph the incredible landscapes and icebergs of the Scoresby Sund fjord system.

HIGHLIGHTS:

- Spectacular Winter Mountains and Landscapes of Lofoten

- Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights)

- White Tailed Sea Eagles

- Private Transport in Winterized Vehicle

- Strictly Limited to 6 Photographers

LOFOTEN WINTER AURORA WORKSHOP

February 10th - February 18th, 2018

The Lofoten Islands are approximately 100 miles north of the Arctic Circle, west of Norway. Lofoten’s natural beauty, with incredible mountains and magnificent fjords offers our small, and intimate group (maximum six participants plus leaders) a chance to explore these remarkable and unique landscapes and seascapes.

The breathtaking village of Reine on the island of Moskenesoya will be our base for six nights situated in some of the most picturesque mountain scenery rising precipitously out of the fjords. Reine has often been described as one of the most beautiful places on earth. If we are lucky and blessed with clear skies, we will be able to witness the Aurora Borealis and the magic of the Northern Lights as they flicker across the night skies. Besides the incredible wealth of photographic locations in the vicinity of Reine, we will use local Fjordskyss ferry service to Vinstad and to the tiny hamlet of Kjerkfjorden, both of which are surrounded by towering granite mountains. Our private transportation will allow to access some of the iconic beaches near Leknes which might be covered in snow. The weather in Lofoten can change quickly in late winter, so please be sure to read the recommended clothing and equipment list.

Our home away from home while on Lofoten and in Reine, will be a quaint and venerable traditional house (built in 1906) which makes it a very cosy, but basic place that we will have all to ourselves. All guests of the house share one bathroom. Additionally, we will also have the use of a Rorbu, a style of housing historically associated with shermen now converted into homely accommodations complete with private bathroom and small kitchen. Our second base for two nights is Leknes where we will stay at a comfortable hotel. From here we can easily access the beautiful coastal beaches of Utaklieve, Haukland and Skagsanden.

During February, the days are short with sunrise at approximately 8:25am and sunset around 4:15pm. Given our northern location, the sun will be low in the sky providing soft, magnificent light conditions, for all day photography.

From the moment the exploration begins in Leknes, Lofoten until it ends 9 days later, all costs are included - transportation, food, drinks (excluding alcoholic beverages), and accommodation based on a single room per person. If you have special dietary requirements you will be accommodated - please be sure to advise when booking. Packed lunches will be taken in the field and we suggest you bring a thermos flask for soup, coffee or tea.

We will be using a large 9-seat winterized mini-van to move us from location to location during the workshop. However, the Lofoten Islands are best explored on foot and we plan to visit some of the more spectacular viewpoints which are only available by hiking. Given suitable conditions we will access a number of hiking trails that offer far reaching and incredible views of the mountain spires and sea. The trails range from easy beach walks to steep, mountain trails with switchbacks. One of the grandest viewpoints on the island is the epic panorama of Reinefjorden and the improbable Lofoten Wall a (two-four hour round trip) with some steep scrambling. All hikes are optional but please contact us if you have any concerns about the fitness requirements for this workshop.

This is a unique opportunity to travel and photograph with two experienced professionals who have a combined total of more than 40 years of photographic experience and can take you to the best locations that are off the beaten track, and at the right time – when the light is best.

ICELAND WINTER FOXES EXPEDITION

February 22nd - March 1st 2018

This is a unique and special opportunity for a small group of just five photographers to photograph wild Arctic Foxes in the remote north-west of Iceland during winter. We will travel to the remote Arctic peninsula in the Hornstrandir Nature reserve to photograph what is perhaps Nature’s greatest survivor - The Arctic Fox.

Arctic Foxes are unfortunately hunted and shot across most of Iceland making them extremely shy and difficult to find (and even more difficult to photograph). In the remote north-west however the Arctic Foxes are protected inside the Hornstrandir Nature Reserve and can be more easily approached and photographed.

This photography expedition will last for 8 days (7 nights). We will be staying in a small remote cabin that is rustic, but functional and clean. During our stay in the cabin we will have a dedicated staff member to clean and prepare breakfast, lunch and dinner for us (all included). However, this expedition is all about photography and we will be putting in long hours in the field in order to ensure we give ourselves the best possible opportunities to photograph the Arctic Fox. We may take food and drink with us into the field to ensure we are in position and ready to photograph when the foxes are active. We will have up to 10 hours of good light during the day with which to photograph the Arctic foxes. With luck, we may also see and photograph the spectacular Northern lights.

April 30th - May 11th, 2018

In late April / May 2018 I will be co-leading a landscape Masterclass workshop to the South Island of New Zealand with Pro Landscape Photographer Phillip Bartlett. Our workshop will take us on a photographic journey into ‘Middle Earth’ – The spectacular South Island of New Zealand. We will be photographing in the style of a professional landscape photographer, setting ourselves up with three main ‘base camps’. This means we will have extended stays in areas which offer exceptional photography in all directions, allowing us to select our shoot locations based on the prevailing weather. This approach will give us the best possible chance to capture professional-quality imagery. The South Island of New Zealand is home to some of the most spectacular scenery and landscapes in the world. It is no co-incidence that Peter Jackson chose the South Island of New Zealand to film the Hobbit and the Lord of the Rings movies. Perhaps nowhere else in the world can one see and photograph precipitous alpine mountains plunging into temperate rain forest and wild ocean beaches in so short a space. New Zealand is home to an incredibly diverse range of subject matter in a small island. Glaciers, waterfalls, spectacular valleys, imposing mountain ranges and black pebble beaches. It is an island of ever changing weather and spectacular light conditions. It is a country made for photography.

NAMIBIA DESERT FIRE SAFARI

October 6th - October 18th, 2018

On the South Western Coast of Africa, where the icy Atlantic ocean meets the world’s oldest desert lies a place that is known for its landscapes as much as the Serengeti is known for its abundant wildlife. The unique combination of desert, grassland and cold ocean current form a one-of-a-kind terrain found only here. For this reason landscape photographers from all over the world journey to the Namibia Desert to try and capture its ethereal beauty.

In this captivating region of Namibia lies a maze of mountainous valleys that look like they were carpeted from slope to slope by ivory colored grass, criss-crossed by ancient riverbeds and dotted with a collection of photogenic acacia trees. The final unique touch is added by the large snake like dunes that rise from the grasslands like the roof of some subterranean world. These stark and compelling landscapes are something to behold with the human eye, but when it’s sweeping meadows, barren mountains and blood red dunes are captured and transformed into a two dimensional image, it becomes obvious why this place is so beautifully addictive to photographers.

The goal of this safari is to photograph the breathtaking desert landscapes and wildlife of Namibia. We have complete flexibility to stop to take photographs at any time along the way with plenty of room for gear and equipment - so bring what you need! This safari has been designed to a good balance between flexibility, photographic opportunities and comfortable accommodations.

This exciting new safari has been custom tailored to take in the very best of Namibia and includes such iconic areas as the mystical Deadvlei, the ghost town of Kolmanskop and the Dune landscapes of Sossusvlei. We will also visit Etosha at the best possible time for wildlife. We also have opportunities for photography flights from helicopter over the spectacular Skeleton Coast.

This exclusive safari is for a strictly limited number of just 10 participants plus leader and guide and is dedicated to the photography of desert landscapes and the wildlife of Namibia.
