Snow Leopards of Mongolia and Pallas Cat 2021 Sold Out

In December next year I will be leading a brand new small group expedition to Western Mongolia in winter to find and photograph the enigmatic Snow Leopard. Originally planned for December 2020, the expedition has been pushed back a year as a result of the ongoing COVID situation. Due to the initial interest I received after my Pallas Cat report the expedition is sold out. Some of us will also be partaking in a small group extension to find and photograph the Pallas Cat. If you were keen to photograph Snow Leopard in winter my drop me an email as there is already a waiting list on a possible future 2022 expedition. Photograph below courtesy my guide in Mongolia.

Greenland Arctic Expedition Feedback

Just wanted to share some wonderful feedback I received this morning regarding one of my previous Greenland expeditions.

Had a terrific time on this trip – enjoyed every single minute. The greenlandic landscape/ icescape is everything I hoped for and more. Enjoyed the geographic isolation. Good mix of locations and shooting from ship, zodiac and shore. Met some great people. Josh was a great host – so I’m anxious to join several of his other Arctic trips in the near future. Jerry.

You can read the trip report fromt his expedition HERE. You can also check out the Spark presentation on Greenland HERE.

I will soon be announcing a new expedition into Kaiser Franz Josef on the East Coast of Greenland in August of 2023. Stand by for further details and information on this new expedition that will take us deep inside the rarely visited National Park region of East Greenland.
