The pandemic (and now Putin’s war) are still having an ongoing effect on travel for many and as a result, there are a number of places that have become available on upcoming workshops and expeditions. Please drop me an email if you would like any additional information or would like to register for one of the remaining open places.
Bookings are closed until further notice for the planned expedition this July to Wrangle Island (Russian Territory). Further details on the viability of this expedition will be provided as soon as possible.

SVALBARD KINGDOM OF THE ICE BEAR – July 6th, July 15th, 2022
In July 2022 I am leading an expedition to the pack ice north of Svalbard to photograph Polar Bears and other wildlife and landscape of this incredible archipelago. This expedition has been designed to provide the very best possible opportunities to Photograph 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. July and August are the ideal times to photograph the landscape and Polar Bears north of Svalbard due to the dwindling ice around the archipelago. 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. There are three places available – Full details at www.jholko.com/workshops
WILD WOLVES OF THE TAIGA FOREST – October 10th, October 17th, 2022
This unique workshop is dedicated to photographing the magnificent Wolves and Brown Bears of Northern Finland, in a fiery Autumn / early Winter setting. After much research and highly successful on-site location testing, I am very excited to offer you the opportunity to get up close and personal with these magnificent predators. On this workshop you will have EXCLUSIVE LAND ACCESS, which means it’s only us and the wildlife, no other photographers or visitors permitted.
We will be photographing in late Autumn / early Winter conditions: We can expect everything from sunny days to clouds, fog, and even the first snows of winter. This variety of weather, landscape, and lighting conditions will provide you with the opportunity to create a diverse, creative and professional portfolio of these predators.
