Falklands, South Georgia & Antarctica Photography Expedition
Discover the wonders of the Falkland Islands and South Georgia on this photography expedition to Antarctica!
This incredible workshop is designed to have you immersed in the spectacular surrounds of the White Continent as you hone your photography skills with expert guidance and education. Across 23 incredible days, you'll sail from the tip of Argentina across the South Atlantic Ocean to the Falkland Islands, before continuing on through the Southern Ocean to South Georgia Island. From there, you'll make your way over the Scotia Sea before reaching your penultimate destination in the South Shetland Islands and Antarctic Peninsula. Your aim will be to capture the breathtaking and diverse landscapes as you traverse the seas, taking in the wondrous icy mountain peaks, soaring cliff sides, pristine beaches and majestic icebergs that you'll encounter during each leg of the journey.
Aside from snowy wilderness, this remote part of the world is home to some of the most amazing wildlife. You'll have plenty of opportunities to photograph rare and endangered whales, seals, dolphins and many species of penguins, as well as sea birds such as albatross, Giant petrel and Falkland steamer ducks.
The M/v Sea Spirit will be your warm and cosy base for the duration of this expedition. With up-to-date technology and comfortable fittings, this polar-class expedition vessel is well-equipped to carry you safely to the end of the world and back. The Falklands, South Georgia and Antarctica are best explored on foot, so we'll make several shore landings and excursions during the workshop to ensure that you'll be best placed for mindboggling photographic opportunities.
This photography expedition will be guided by world-renowned photographer, Daniel Kordan. Throughout the tour, he'll share all of his in-depth knowledge with you to ensure that you'll take your photography skills to a whole new level.
