Kingdom of the Ice Bear – Movie Release

In August this year (2015) I took a small film crew (Untitled Film Works) with me on a photographic expedition to the very edge of the permanent pack ice, high above the Arctic circle. At our most northerly position we were a mere 500 nautical miles from the North Pole. The film crew documented our expedition as we searched for and photographed the increasingly rare, elusive and threatened Polar Bear. During the expedition we also photographed stunning Arctic landscapes as well as other Arctic wildlife including Walrus, Arctic Fox, Reindeer, and more. It was our intention to capture and share the experience of what it is actually like to travel on a dedicated photographic expedition with a small group of passionate photographers. I am now thrilled to release the short movie of our experiences – Kingdom of the Ice Bear. Be sure to dim the lights, crank up the volume and enjoy. My sincere thank you to Untitled Film Works and all of those participants who partook in this extraodinary expedition – thank you.

  1. I follow your blog. I really enjoy the nature and wildlife photos, but find the Arctic ice has a certain draw to it also. Your photos from those trips are amazing. I know you are busy getting ready for your next trip, but could not help notice the inclusion of a drop-in polarizer for your Canon 600mm. I have one for my Canon 500mm and have used it sparingly. When do you use yours? What scenarios make you think “I need to add the drop-in”?

    1. Hi Doug,

      Honestly, I hardly ever use the drop in polariser – but every now and again I come across a situation where its helpful for removing reflections from water. Can be useful at the waters edge to take the sheen off sand as well. Its small and light so I usually pack it – but I think more often than not it probably doesn’t get used. Cheers.

  3. Josh;

    What a beautiful and lyrical 6 minutes I have spent in watching your excellent documentary. It really saddens me to know that these animals, the Polar Bear, may only survive for a short time before we may never see them again. Really makes me want to be there with you to see these magnificent creatures, maybe for the last time.
