Antarctica 2014

Did you know that I am going to Antarctica next winter- and that you can join me?

In collaboration with One Ocean Expeditions, (OOE) Canada, the photography workshop on this expedition, is co-organized by Iconic Images International (Denis Glennon), C4 Images & Safaris (Shem Compion), and myself. OOE is an innovative, service-first, small ship Polar cruise company that offers comfortable, affordable and educational nature-based expeditions to Antarctica. We collaborated with OOE because of their common sense approach to pricing, limited passenger numbers and their commitment to ecological preservation and conservation. These values sit very comfortably alongside those of Denis, Shem and myself. OOE’s cooperation allows us to deliver a specialized on-board and zodiac/land-based small group photographic workshop, to make this polar expedition a very special photographic event.

I have a feeling this is going to sell out quick- so if you are interested contact Denis Glennon soon- and tell him I sent you!

On Location – ANTARCTICA

I just returned from another eventful and gut-wrenching Antarctica sailing.  I was one of the few not affected by seasickness in the brutal crossing of the Drake Passage.

This was a very lucky trip.  We managed to dodge two major storms, one of which disabled the boat I sailed on last year.  When we returned to South America, there were tours and boats backed up waiting for a break in the weather.

While waiting to embark the Ushuaia in Ushuaia, I photographed psychedelic macros of peeling paint on metal buildings and the next day we were at sea heading to Half Moon Island in the South Shetlands, and then on to the Lemaire Channel and other ice-bound islets.  On one of our exploratorations off the boat I saw young Gentoo penguins play-acting nesting behavior.  They were trying to “hatch” rocks and build nests.

Take a look & enjoy!
