At this time of year, the sun never really sets, casting the sky in dramatic hues of pink, icy blue, purple, blazing red and orange as it barely skims across the horizon. We will sail amongst the fascinating icebergs of the icefjord that have calved from the nearby Sermeq Kujalleq glacier, capturing their many different shapes and sizes.  The captain of the Maria is very experienced and will work closely with us to scout for the best locations in Disko Bay from which we can capture the many incredible sights. Due to the unpredictable weather conditions in this area, our itinerary will be flexible and our guides will aim to have you in all the right spots to take advantage of the fantastic light.

This photography tour is an adventure through the rugged waterways of Scoresby Sound, a network of stunning fjords that will take your breath away. To take a trip through the icy wilderness of this region is to go back to a time when things were simpler, when our collective will was worth little in the face of nature’s supreme power. There are few places left in the world where landscapes, weather and the seasons combine to leave you feeling both small and in awe, but the eastern coast of Greenland is certainly one of those remaining wonders. We will spend ten spectacular days sailing through pristine arctic landscapes, gazing up at imposing basalt cliffs, capturing icebergs as they make a break for the open ocean, and delighting in the rare wildlife that calls Greenland home. It will be summer when we sail, so we will travel beneath the ethereal light of the Midnight Sun, shooting in the near-constant glow that comes from being this far north at this time of the year. Rare arctic plants, serene icebergs, towering cliffs and spectacular glacier formations are just the tip of the iceberg; we are also likely to witness whales in their natural habitat and countless species of birds. The bulk of our traveling will take place on board our ship the Donna Wood. It’s a fitting way to explore this part of the world, and we will sail along in silence without disturbing areas that have stood quietly for thousands of years. While the deck of the ship will offer incredible views throughout the tour, we will be using zodiac boats to take trips onto shore and extend our exploration of the many glaciers and icebergs.

One Week Photography Tour in Russia | Lake Baikal & Olkhon Island

Lake Baikal is one of the main wonders in Russia. It is especially beautiful in winter. Where else can you see a huge lake not covered with snow? When you step on the ice you feel like in outer space, there is a meter of clear ice and a kilometer of the purest water under your feet. We make this tour with maximum comfort and safety precaution as possible: most experienced drivers, rescue service at hand and best possible brand-new hotel of Baikal lake. Photographers adore the Baikal. You can see ice texture, Olhon rocks and a great number of ice grottoes and caves on your way. It is comfortable to travel around the Baikal today –there are comfortable modern lodges with room facilities and cafes in Olhon. You may travel on a specially marked by EMERCOM ice track. 2,000 km of coastline means there will be plenty of spots on this epic photo tour from which you can peer out over the icy expanse. The parts of the ice that aren’t bewitchingly clear are covered with a delicate blanket of snow, so as we step out onto the lake we will wander across a winter landscape that offer textures and colour like nothing you will have witnessed before. It also happens to be the world’s deepest lake, and we will step forward in the knowledge that over 1.5km of water sits underneath the frozen surface. It’s not hard to understand why photographers adore the mighty Baikal in winter. This is the textbook prototype of a picture-perfect landscape; a powerful reminder that sometimes all we can do is look on and admire as nature takes its course. This tour will take place in January, around the time of year when the ice has had time to reach peak thickness and clarity, and the snow has begun to cover the lake beneath. Aside from Baikal we will see the island of Olkhon and its famous rocks, along with ice grottos and caves perfect for photography. Travel around Lake Baikal is relatively despite its vastness and remoteness. There are a number of modern lodges with room facilities and cafes on the island of Olkhon.

Russia's Kamchatka Peninsula | 15 Day Photo Tour

The vast wilderness of Russia’s Kamchatka peninsula is perhaps one of the great unknowns for even experienced outdoor enthusiasts. Understandably, too; as well as being pretty remote (it’s a 4,000 mile, 10 hour flight from Moscow) little more than a decade ago it was a military zone almost completely closed to outsiders. Considering it’s about as big as Austria, Germany and Switzerland rolled into one, this photography tour will make you wonder how the Russians managed to keep Kamchatka a secret for so long. Luckily for you, the curtain of the cold war has lifted to reveal one of planet the world’s most vast and spectacular natural destinations. On this photography tour you and your camera will be exposed to incredible wildlife, from roaming bears to reindeer, wolves and rare birds. The water isn’t bad too: rivers are packed with fish and the open ocean is home to marine mammals aplenty. But for all the wildlife, Kamchatka’s biggest draw is without doubt the landscape. Sure, plenty of countries have volcanoes, but on this peninsula you’ll find about 300, along with thermal springs, geysers, thousands of lakes, and more scenic rivers than you can count. Our aim is to take you deep into Kamchatka’s great wilderness, on a journey into uncharted territory alongside expert photography guides. Where better to improve your photography skills than in a land with every subject you could dream of? So here’s the plan. Over the course of two unforgettable weeks, we will visit as many of Kamchatka’s photogenic sights as possible with our specially modified 6WD off-road vehicle. Expect shoots of imposing volcanoes, optional hiking trails through lava fields, and the opportunity to get up close to the local brown bears. We will also enjoy a day onboard a luxury boat, photographing the shores of Kamchatka and the magnificent ocean wildlife, with whales, seals, and a number of rare sea birds. All of this will be in the company of a team of skilled professionals, including a driver, a local guide, a chef and a ranger. Not to mention an English-speaking photography expert, who will hold daily workshops and discussions to ensure you make the most of your time here.

Greenland Photo Tour in Scoresby Sound | Sailing on Schooner

Join us on this 10 day adventurous photo expedition to the rugged land of Scoresby Sound in east Greenland, capturing otherworldly scenery like you have never witnessed before. This photography tour is an adventure through the rugged waterways of Scoresby Sound, a network of stunning fjords that will take your breath away. To take a trip through the icy wilderness of this region is to go back to a time when things were simpler, when our collective will was worth little in the face of nature’s supreme power. There are few places left in the world where landscapes, weather and the seasons combine to leave you feeling both small and in awe, but the eastern coast of Greenland is certainly one of those remaining wonders. We will spend ten spectacular days sailing through pristine arctic landscapes, gazing up at imposing basalt cliffs, capturing icebergs as they make a break for the open ocean, and delighting in the rare wildlife that calls Greenland home. It will be summer when we sail, so we will travel beneath the ethereal light of the Midnight Sun, shooting in the near-constant glow that comes from being this far north at this time of the year. Rare arctic plants, serene icebergs, towering cliffs and spectacular glacier formations are just the tip of the iceberg; we are also likely to witness whales in their natural habitat and countless species of birds. The bulk of our traveling will take place on board our ship the Donna Wood. It’s a fitting way to explore this part of the world, and we will sail along in silence without disturbing areas that have stood quietly for thousands of years. While the deck of the ship will offer incredible views throughout the tour, we will be using zodiac boats to take trips onto shore and extend our exploration of the many glaciers and icebergs. What are you waiting for? Ten spectacular nights aboard the Donna Wood in the spectacular surrounds of Greenland await. Secure your place today!

One Week Photography Tour in Russia | Lake Baikal & Olkhon Island

Lake Baikal is one of the main wonders in Russia. It is especially beautiful in winter. Where else can you see a huge lake not covered with snow? When you step on the ice you feel like in outer space, there is a meter of clear ice and a kilometer of the purest water under your feet. We make this tour with maximum comfort and safety precaution as possible: most experienced drivers, rescue service at hand and best possible brand-new hotel of Baikal lake. Photographers adore the Baikal. You can see ice texture, Olhon rocks and a great number of ice grottoes and caves on your way. It is comfortable to travel around the Baikal today –there are comfortable modern lodges with room facilities and cafes in Olhon. You may travel on a specially marked by EMERCOM ice track. 2,000 km of coastline means there will be plenty of spots on this epic photo tour from which you can peer out over the icy expanse. The parts of the ice that aren’t bewitchingly clear are covered with a delicate blanket of snow, so as we step out onto the lake we will wander across a winter landscape that offer textures and colour like nothing you will have witnessed before. It also happens to be the world’s deepest lake, and we will step forward in the knowledge that over 1.5km of water sits underneath the frozen surface. It’s not hard to understand why photographers adore the mighty Baikal in winter. This is the textbook prototype of a picture-perfect landscape; a powerful reminder that sometimes all we can do is look on and admire as nature takes its course. This tour will take place in January, around the time of year when the ice has had time to reach peak thickness and clarity, and the snow has begun to cover the lake beneath. Aside from Baikal we will see the island of Olkhon and its famous rocks, along with ice grottos and caves perfect for photography. Travel around Lake Baikal is relatively despite its vastness and remoteness. There are a number of modern lodges with room facilities and cafes on the island of Olkhon.

Russia's Kamchatka Peninsula | 15 Day Photo Tour

The vast wilderness of Russia’s Kamchatka peninsula is perhaps one of the great unknowns for even experienced outdoor enthusiasts. Understandably, too; as well as being pretty remote (it’s a 4,000 mile, 10 hour flight from Moscow) little more than a decade ago it was a military zone almost completely closed to outsiders. Considering it’s about as big as Austria, Germany and Switzerland rolled into one, this photography tour will make you wonder how the Russians managed to keep Kamchatka a secret for so long. Luckily for you, the curtain of the cold war has lifted to reveal one of planet the world’s most vast and spectacular natural destinations. On this photography tour you and your camera will be exposed to incredible wildlife, from roaming bears to reindeer, wolves and rare birds. The water isn’t bad too: rivers are packed with fish and the open ocean is home to marine mammals aplenty. But for all the wildlife, Kamchatka’s biggest draw is without doubt the landscape. Sure, plenty of countries have volcanoes, but on this peninsula you’ll find about 300, along with thermal springs, geysers, thousands of lakes, and more scenic rivers than you can count. Our aim is to take you deep into Kamchatka’s great wilderness, on a journey into uncharted territory alongside expert photography guides. Where better to improve your photography skills than in a land with every subject you could dream of? So here’s the plan. Over the course of two unforgettable weeks, we will visit as many of Kamchatka’s photogenic sights as possible with our specially modified 6WD off-road vehicle. Expect shoots of imposing volcanoes, optional hiking trails through lava fields, and the opportunity to get up close to the local brown bears. We will also enjoy a day onboard a luxury boat, photographing the shores of Kamchatka and the magnificent ocean wildlife, with whales, seals, and a number of rare sea birds. All of this will be in the company of a team of skilled professionals, including a driver, a local guide, a chef and a ranger. Not to mention an English-speaking photography expert, who will hold daily workshops and discussions to ensure you make the most of your time here.
