Discover Svalbard with photographer Florian Schulz!
We want to share with you the unique opportunity to join Florian on a 14 day arctic adventure to explore the archipelago of Svalbard. For his new companion book "To The Arctic" to the upcoming IMAX film Florian explored the Arctic in the course of 18 months in the past years. Svalbard has become one of his favorite spots. Now you can join him on this expedition.
We will embark on this arctic expedition to explore the Svalbard archipelago from June 04 to June 18, 2012.
Interested? Please contact us by, Thursday March 1st, 2012!
While we certainly hope to discover polar bears, this expedition is more about exploring and documenting the arctic ecosystem as a whole. We will visit large bird colonies where animals number in the hundred-thousands, look for walrus haul outs, look for arctic foxes and spend time capturing the magic of the arctic landscape.
A good amount of our effort of course will be searching for the great white bear. In the past expeditions we had great success finding and photographing polar bears but we will all have to work together scanning the landscapes and taking turns on polar bear watch while we are at anchor. As the light is best during the night hours, we might turn around our clocks to sleep during the day.
The total cost per person for the14 day expedition is 9,000.- EUR.
This includes all meals, snacks, soft drinks, zodiac and guide. The cost of the trip does not include your flight to and from Svalbard nor any hotel accommodations. It only includes the boat trip. We will of course, pick you up at the airport.
On board the sailboat we will have two zodiacs that we can launch once we are anchored to head out to explore the coast or visit bird colonies. Overall the trip should be seen as an exploration of Svalbard for nature enthusiasts that enjoy photography.
While it is not a photography workshop Florian will give insights into his photography, share tips and tricks and give little photography "seminars" in the evenings.
The skill level of photography is not that important as is the passion for taking pictures and the interest in observing wildlife as we sometimes may spend an extended amount of time photographing in one single area.
