As per an announcement by Peregrine Adventures, World renowned photographer Steve Davey will be accompanying a photography group traveling on the Spitsbergen Explorer voyage to the Arctic commencing on the 9th of June, 2014.
Davey will be sharing his invaluable experiences with the photography group while they exercise their skills and explore the western edge of Svalbard, and sail to the extreme northern areas to watch the hunting polar bears in their natural habitats, walrus, puffins, entire colonies of rare seabirds numbering into thousands and the whales which inhabit these cold Arctic waters.
Discerning photographers traveling on this voyage will receive expert advice, tips and suggestions from Davey in the form of a series of illustrated talk sessions, activity sessions with the whole group, assigned photographic tasks and personal review sessions. Davey will also share vital inputs on how to tackle the extreme conditions of the Arctic when photographing here. A private group, Zodiac convoys, will be making this happen by having Davey traveling with the group and sharing from his vast experience of photographing in the extreme Arctic conditions.
Erica Hazen from the Peregrine Adventures mentioned, that the Arctic voyage is a special one, thanks to the rugged yet beautiful landscapes teeming with life. The beauty of the fjords and the icebergs will simply take your breadth away. Steve will be at hand throughout the voyage, inspiring, sharing and guiding the budding nature photographers, helping them to capture and bring home some truly fascinating images of this unique world; and hopefully in the process develop their travel photography skills.
