The Arctic photography program presents us with a lot of exciting ways to improve your nature, wildlife and landscape photography skills.
This is an active photography adventure which covers the multitude of landscapes in the region; among which there are glacier-carved cliff sides, canyons, riverbeds, waterfalls, and wide variety of flora. Tourists may also have opportunities to take plenty of photos of polar bears, arctic hares, beluga whales, and foxes. Cruise Companies usually make workshops in order to prepare photographs for hard weather conditions. These are geared toward nature and landscape photographers seeking photo assignments in the field, talks on techniques, and, of course, edit-and-critique sessions.
Nansen Weber is a professional Arctic photographer. He has spent many summers exploring landscapes and studying the behaviors of arctic wolves, caribou, polar bears, arctic foxes, as well as belugas. It is safe to say that he has seen them all. He uses to share his experience with people who are interesting in Arctic photography. Nansen has made a guide, so that guests could capture the unforgettable memories of Arctic on camera.
And now, let me show you some exponents you may encounter on your voyage to the Arctic.
The Arctic fox is also known as the white fox, polar fox, or snow fox. It is a small fox native to the Arctic regions of the Northern Hemisphere and common throughout the Arctic tundra
The Arctic hare, or sometimes known as polar rabbit, is a hare, which has adapted to in the extreme conditions of Africa. The polar rabbit has a thick coat of fur and digs holes in the ground or under snow to sleep and keep itself warm. Arctic hares are just like rabbits but their ears are shorter. They are taller when standing in comparison to common rabbits, and also can thrive in extremely cold temperatures.
The polar bear is a carnivorous bear whose native range lies largely within the Arctic Circle. It is a large bear, approximately the same size as the omnivorous Kodiak bear. A boar (adult male) weighs around 350–700 kg, while a sow (adult female) is about half that size.
The walrus is a large flippered marine mammal with a discontinuous distribution about the North Pole in the Arctic. Adult males in the Pacific ocean can weigh more than 2,000 kg.
The muskox, also spelled musk ox and musk-ox, is an Arctic mammal of the family Bovidae, noted for its thick coat and for the strong odor emitted during the seasonal rut by males.
These are the main exponents of Arctic fauna. We hope you will have plenty of opportunities to take photos of these marvelous animals.
