I am excited to announce today that Canon Australia and the Canon Collective have joined my photographic expedition to South Georgia Island and Antarctica this November. Full details of this expedition are available on my website HERE. There are now only a few places remaining before the expedition will be sold out. Full Press Release Below.
Canon Collective joins Photographers First Light in Antarctica for Ultimate Photography Event
Antarctic cruise specialists Aurora Expeditions have unveiled their brand new partnership with the Canon Collective – the social community of leading photography and camera brand, Canon Australia. The partnership will see the two companies align to bring travellers an exclusive Antarctic photography experience on an expedition to Antarctica and South Georgia this November.
The collaboration between Aurora Expeditions and the Canon Collective will provide the ultimate Antarctic photography experience for photographers of all levels. An on-board photography program will be delivered by award-winning professional polar photographer Joshua Holko and inspiring environmental photographer, Martyn Lucas.
Travellers can expect to develop their photography through a series of lectures and workshops as they sail through the stunning landscapes of Antarctica and South Georgia. Guides will assist in the field with camera skills, one-on-one tuition as well as assistance with editing and post-production skills.
Travellers will also be treated to the opportunity to trial a range of Canon’s photography equipment with support from two Canon Collective ambassadors, who will be on hand to teach and assist passengers more about the products as well as support the photography guides with tips and tricks for capturing the best photographs.
What can travellers expect to photograph on this amazing expedition? They’ll capture the early-season light as the days grow longer and skies change from blue to all shades of pink. Soaring seabirds will be photographed as they follow in the ship’s wake along with at least three species of penguin as they come ashore in the thousands for the short, intense summer.
From small inflatable crafts ‘Zodiacs’, passengers will cruise past and snap intricately-shaped icebergs and giant glaciers, piecing out of the snowy backdrop into the clear, icy waters. Daily shore landings offer opportunities to explore and capture the wildlife and landscapes most only dream of.
Whether you’re a professional photographer or just enjoy taking stunning holiday snapshots, this dedicated photography voyage will offer you the best experience to capture the unique beauty of Antarctica and South Georgia.
The 18-day Photographer’s First Light expedition featuring the Canon Collective departs Santiago, Chile with a flight to Stanley in the Falkland Islands on 19 November 2016, and ends in Punta Arenas, Chile on 6 December 2016. Prices start from US$14,300 per person and includes all on-board accommodation and meals, daily excursions, expert guides, photography workshops, and use of Canon’s latest equipment.

Martyn travels the world with his camera, with a particular interest in the Polar Regions. His recently published work and exhibitions highlight the Poles and focus on the environment and what is profoundly at stake in these regions. His aim is to make photographs that draw viewers into the now. Most people see the world in colour: lustrous, radiant, glossy and saturated… while the world of black and white offers the basics – light and shadow falling on various surfaces, beautiful, rich and inviting shadows, geometries, lines, shapes and bold designs.
