The photograph of the month for January 2022 comes from my last visit to Finland in the Autumn of 2021 (Read the Trip Report). Photographed from private hide during some of the first snows of the season, it consists of the entire wolf pack together. This is a photograph I have been attempting to get for some years now as it is quite uncommon for the pack to come together in the open like this. The addition of the fresh snow adds that magical quality that makes it a very special moment.
I have just published Episode #35 of my Wild Nature Photography Podcast. This podcast includes an introduction to 2022 with my thoughts on travel, travel restrictions as a result of the ongoing pandemic, and where I want to head with the podcast this year.
It has been some time since I last did an update on workshop and expedition availability and with COVID still wreaking havoc on the travel industry, there are a number of last-minute places available on upcoming trips.
I have a number of places available on my Spring Light Svalbard expedition this April. This expedition will run April 8th – April 16th 2022. Full details are available on my website at www.jholko.com/workshops. Please just note, currently Norway requires an EU certified vaccination certificate to avoid quarantine on entry.
There are also two places that have become available on the 2023 September Greenland expedition. Please contact me for further details.
I would like to thank all the readers and followers of my blog, those who follow my work on social media, who have purchased prints, cards, and books as well as workshop and expedition participants for your continued support throughout 2021. It has been an extraordinarily challenging year for many (myself included) and I am hopeful things improve for all in the coming year. I wish all of you a very happy and safe New Year and all the very best for 2022. If you are traveling with me in 2022 on one or more of my workshops or expeditions I look forward to shooting together in some of the world’s most beautiful and remote locations. I hope your year is full of beautiful light, stunning locations, good health, and great times.
