Get expert tips on how to set up, capture, and edit the best possible wildlife photographs on a 9-day micro-cruise with Chase Teron. Chase is a professional wildlife and nature photographer as well as an environmentalist, and he’ll be giving group tutorials and one-to-one photography sessions to prepare you for wildlife sightings. Our small expedition vessel will take us up close to nature, and reach places larger ships can’t get to. We’ll travel up the north-west Spitsbergen coast, searching for photo opportunities, with the 24-hr May daylight on our side.
And there are plenty of incredible photo opportunities along the way.
We’ll visit walrus haul-out sites, explore areas where polar bears roam and get up close to some of Svalbard’s largest, and most impressive glacier fronts. We regularly see walruses, seals, and land-based mammals including Arctic foxes, and reindeer. There’s an excellent chance of encountering marine life too, such as beluga whales, blue whales, and fin whales. Conditions-allowing, we’ll also attempt to explore the sea ice to the north of the archipelago that stretches to the North Pole.
