Photograph Antarctica Alongside National Geographic Channel’s ‘Tales by Light’ Photographer Peter Eastway
Expedition cruise company, Aurora Expeditions, is encouraging budding photographers to act fast to secure their place on an exclusive photography expedition featuring Peter Eastway, AIPP Grand Master of Photography and one of the world’s elite photographers starring in National Geographic Channel’s new ground-breaking documentary series Tales by Light.This unique opportunity will allow photographers of all levels to develop their skills under the eye of one of Australia’s best landscape and travel photographers as Peter guides students through a tailored program of lectures and workshops on essentials camera skills, photographing in the Polar Regions and post-production techniques. Peter will also be on hand on shore to assist with questions and help photographers capture that perfect Antarctic photograph.
Joining Peter is award-winning cinematographer Abraham Joffe. As one of Australia’s top DSLR filmmakers, and the creator and cameraman behind the Tales by Light television series, Abraham will share his passion for storytelling and filmmaking, offering workshops and guidance for those interested in cinematography.
Photographers can expect to capture Antarctica and South Georgia’s stunning, pristine landscapes and amazing wildlife as they travel to the same locations that Peter and Abraham captured while travelling with Aurora Expeditions during the filming of the final episode of Tales by Light. Discover what it is like to stand in front of hundreds of thousands of penguins, see cute seals linger on ice floes and be memorised by seabirds as they glide gracefully in the tailwind. As the days grow longer photographers can expect gorgeous sunsets with hues of pink and icebergs reflecting all shades of blue.
Travelling aboard small ship Polar Pioneer, the expedition accommodates just 54 passengers plus a team of expedition experts including naturalists and historians. The small-ship experience ensures regular shore excursions for the chance to truly maximise photographic opportunities. Polar Pioneer is supported by a fleet of Zodiacs and crew allowing all photographers to be shooting simultaneously with plenty of room to spare for camera equipment.
The complimentary photography workshops will be run on Aurora Expeditions’ 18-day ‘Scotia Sea Springtime‘ expedition to Antarctica and South Georgia departing Santiago on 21 November 2015.
Prices start from US$14,300 per person and include photography workshops, ship accommodation, all meals on board, all guided shore excursions, lectures, a customised expedition jacket and hard-back photo book.
