Photo of the Month August 2017 – Reindeer White Out

As featured in the credits of my recent Ghosts of the Arctic short film, the photograph of the month for August 2017 is of Reindeer in winter in Svalbard. Taken during freezing temperatures and howling wind the simplicity of this photograph greatly appeals to my penchant for simple, but evocative and powerful photographs. The making of this photograph was anything but simple though as conditions were extremely difficult to work in with temperatures below -30º Celsius with wind chill. Nevertheless the resultant photograph for me captures the essence of Reindeer in winter.
