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.

With the ongoing COVID pandemic and the continuing uncertainty surrounding international travel I have taken the decision today to delay the planned 2021 Arctic fox expedition to Northern Iceland until 2022. New dates for the expedition are the 9th – 14th February 2022. A detailed PDF itinerary of the expedition can be downloaded HERE and more details are available on my website.

For those who are interested in this expedition to the remote north of Iceland to photograph Arctic Fox in a beautiful winter setting I have put together a short Adobe Spark Presentation and Website  with some teaser photographs and some information on the expedition. Of course, more photographs are also available on my website at www.jholko.com.

COVID Update Antarctica Emperor Penguins Expedition Delayed until 2022

Photo of the Month August 2020 – Finland Grey Wolf

Finland has rapidly become one of my favourite destinations in the world for wildlife photography. In fact, if I could only choose one place on earth to photograph wildlife for the rest of my days it would certainly be Finland (Greenland for landscapes). It’s not just the sheer variety of  incredible wildlife on offer, but its also the wonderful seasons that form the perfect backdrop. Winter presents a snow and ice covered landscape that forms the perfect clean white canvas for wildlife, whilst Autumn is a combination of fiery yellows and oranges, soft grasses and gentle light. The differing seasons and transitions in between provide a dynamic, fresh and constantly changing environment for photography that provides limitless opportunities.

This photograph of a Grey Wolf in no mans land between Finland and Russia was taken late last year from a private hide I had set up in an area the wolf pack was frequenting. Shot on the very cusp of winters arrival, the Autumn colours have faded and we are presented with a soft pastel forest beginning the inevitable transition into to its winter coat. The muted colour pallet really speaks to me, along with those wonderfully piercing eyes of the wild Wolf.

Workshop and Expedition Delays 2020

As a direct result of the ongoing COVID-19 crisis the following two 2020 workshops have unfortunately had to be delayed and rescheduled. Although these workshops and expeditions were still some months away, I have taken the pre-emptive decision to reschedule based on the continuing uncertainty surrounding international travel and personal safety of the participants. More information about each of these expeditions is available on my website at www.jholko.com/workshops. Registered participants have already been notified and will be contacted individually in writing again if any further changes are required. There is no cost increase to any of these workshops and all payment dates have also been extended in line with the delays.
