NEW ZEALAND SOUTH ISLAND MASTERCLASS

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. If you are excited by the idea of travelling and photographing with a small group of dedicated photographers in the South Island of New Zealand now is the time to register your place by using the Register Online link at the bottom of this page. Places are extremely limited and once spoken for thats it.

POLAR BEARS OF SVALBARD

July 25th - August 4th, 2018

In July 2018 I am leading my annual expedition to the pack ice north of Svalbard to photograph wild Polar Bears living and hunting on the sea ice. This expedition has been designed to provide the very best possible opportunities to Photograph Wild 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 80º 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.

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.

ICELAND WINTER ARCTIC FOXES

February 22nd - February 28th, 2019

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 7 days ( 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.

MYSTICAL FAROE ISLANDS

August 8th -August 16th, 2019

The Faroe Islands are comprised of eighteen small rugged and rocky islands located in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, approximately halfway between Scotland and Iceland. The island’s position is unique and is the frame for breathtaking views; beautiful mountains, majestic fjords, dramatic sea cliffs; all in all a photographers paradise. The islands have a rich bird life, Including the largest colony of storm petrels in the world and over 305 bird species including Razor Bills and Atlantic Puffins.

Having no indigenous people, the islands were most likely first visited by Irish Monks in 400-600AD followed by the arrival of the Vikings in 900AD. Recent unearthing of Celtic Crosses gives credibility to the theory that Irish Monks were the first to set foot on the islands. Today, the islands are self governing under the territory of Denmark, with a population close to 50,000 people and some 80,000 sheep.

Variations in altitude, ocean currents, topography and wind mean the climate differs greatly, even though distances between locations are small. This makes for unpredictable and highly changeable weather. It is not uncommon for one location to experience rain, the next snow, and a third location sun. You can literally experience all four seasons in one day. Average summer temperature is approximately 11º Celsius , and the air is always crisp and clean no matter when you visit. Along with ever changing weather and spectacular light conditions.

This workshop is for dedicated landscape photographers who are willing to work for their images. A small group of participants (maximum of 6 plus leaders) guarantees a more personal and intimate experience than bigger tours can provide.

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 expedition ship Donna Wood, 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!
