Photography Symposiums Shines Bright Light On Antarctica

December 3, 2018 Cruise No Comments Email Email

One Ocean Expeditions (OOE) begins its 2018-2019 Antarctic season with every photographer’s dream voyage to the white continent. Appealing to nature lovers, adventurers, and amateur and pro photographers alike, One Ocean Expeditions’ Photography Symposiums takes guests on a visual feat and adventure of a lifetime.

A world leader in polar expedition cruising, OOE is known for unique, interest-led, small group programming. Featuring hands on tutorials tailored to each guests’ individual needs, OOE’s signature Photography Symposiums are led by world-renowned and award-winning Photographers such as Daisy Gilardini, Photographer-in-Residence for OOE and The Royal Canadian Geographical Society. Operating in the most remote and pristine environments on the planet, the symposiums create ambassadors for these fragile regions through photography and expert-led excursions. The voyages are rich in active adventures and educational experiences with exceptional encounters with wildlife and the surrounding landscapes.

The first OOE Photography Symposium of the season took place in the sub-Antarctic island of South Georgia with the ‘South Georgia In-DepthPhotography Symposium’ led by Daisy Gilardini, and a team of talented professional photographers; Boomer Jerritt, Ron Clifford and Guts Swanepol, as well as Artist-in-Residence David McEwon. Daisy’s next symposium will be held on the ‘Spitsbergen Encounter’ voyage in the Norwegian High Arctic departing June 19th, 2019.

New for 2019, OOE’s specialized photography programming has expanded to include the 10-night ‘Antarctic Peninsula Adventure– including Antarctic Circle Crossing and Photography Symposium’ voyage, departing on March 11th, just as the polar summer comes to an end. This is also when whale season is in full swing and juvenile penguins are learning to swim. Shorter daylight hours offer spectacular sunrises and sunsets, perfect for photography. Staggering numbers of king penguins can be seen and Macaroni penguins are in their greatest numbers.

Leading the group will be award-winning photographers Dave Brosha and Paul Zizka. Guests are offered daily pre-excursion meetings, dedicated photography Zodiacs, specialty landings and excursions based on light, interactive workshops and group or personal reviews. The workshops are led in an encouraging and fun environment with technical and creative support.

Joining Brosha and Zizka are world-class photographers Curtis Jones, Kahli April and Colleen Gara, each offering insight into their personal specialties such as Landscapes, Portraits, Wildlife, Night and Nature.

These talented professionals will share their expertise in photographing wildlife and landscapes in a place that has often been referred to as the ‘greatest wildlife show on Earth’. They have all been selected for their exceptional ability to prioritize excursions in order to maximize the light for photography, whilst also managing weather conditions and itinerary commitments.

With OOE’s specialized Photography Symposium voyages, passengers can make the most of the exceptional photographic opportunities. With a broad spectrum of opportunities for budding photographers, expert guides will contribute fantastic insight as they guide guests beyond obvious images into the realm of unique and compelling story telling.
