Antarctic cruise specialists Aurora Expeditions have unveiled their brand new partnership with the Canon Collective – the social community of leading photography and camera brand, Canon Australia. The partnership will see the two companies align to bring travellers an exclusive Antarctic photography experience on an expedition to Antarctica and South Georgiathis November.
The collaboration between Aurora Expeditions and the Canon Collective will provide the ultimate Antarctic photography experience for photographers of all levels. An on-board photography program will be delivered by award-winning professional polar photographer Joshua Holko and inspiring environmental photographer, Martyn Lucas.
Travellers can expect to develop their photography through a series of lectures and workshops as they sail through the stunning landscapes of Antarctica and South Georgia. Guides will assist in the field with camera skills, one-on-one tuition as well as assistance with editing and post-production skills.
Travellers will also be treated to the opportunity to trial a range of Canon’s photography equipment with support from two Canon Collective ambassadors, who will be on hand to teach and assist passengers more about the products as well as support the photography guides with tips and tricks for capturing the best photographs.
What can travellers expect to photograph on this amazing expedition? They’ll capture the early-season light as the days grow longer and skies change from blue to all shades of pink. Soaring seabirds will be photographed as they follow in the ship’s wake along with at least three species of penguin as they come ashore in the thousands for the short, intense summer.
Travelling aboard the 54-passenger Polar Pioneer and a fleet of small inflatable crafts ‘Zodiacs’, passengers will cruise past and snap intricately-shaped icebergs and giant glaciers, piecing out of the snowy backdrop into the clear, icy waters. Daily shore landings offer opportunities to explore and capture the wildlife and landscapes most only dream of.
Whether you’re a professional photographer or just enjoy taking stunning holiday snapshots, this dedicated photography voyage will offer you the best experience to capture the unique beauty of Antarctica and South Georgia.
The 18-day Photographer’s First Light expedition featuring the Canon Collective departs Santiago, Chile with a flight to Stanley in the Falkland Islands on 19 November 2016, and ends in Punta Arenas, Chile on 6 December 2016.
