Over the last few years, I have penned a number of different guides to help with the selection of Polar expeditions for Photographers. There are many ‘gotchas’ to watch out for in the cruise industry and these guides are designed to help both first-timers and season travelers navigate their way onto the best expedition experience. Whether it is your very first Polar expedition, or if you are a long-time veteran, you will find useful information in these guides that will help ensure you have the best possible experience. All three guides are now available for download both here on my blog and on my website
HOW TO CHOOSE THE RIGHT SHIP-BASED PHOTOGRAPHY EXPEDITION
Choosing the right ship-based Polar Photography expedition can be a bit of a minefield if it’s your first time traveling to the Polar regions. There are a lot of places where what might seem the smart or logical choice at first blush will end up resulting in a sub-optimal experience if photography is your primary goal. Choosing a large luxury cruise liner will certainly secure you a wonderful luxury experience, but it does come at the cost of significant photographic opportunities. One of the first decisions you are going to have to make (after deciding where you want to go) is are you going to choose a dedicated photographic expedition; or a mixed tourist trip? And what are the differences between the two?
HOW DO I CHOOSE THE RIGHT EXPEDITION TO ANTARCTICA?
Choosing the right photographic expedition to Antarctica is a critical decision that is going to have a very significant impact on the portfolio of photographs you collect during your experience. For many, a photographic expedition to Antarctica is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. As such, be sure to read our guide on how to choose the right expedition for your photographic needs.
THE ART OF POLAR BEAR PHOTOGRAPHY

We are going to cover a number of different aspects of polar bear photography and look at how can you maximize your chances of capturing a fantastic photograph of this increasingly endangered and rare mammal.
