Shooting in Black & White

In Antarctica, The Craft, Thoughts & Theory, Tutorials &Technique by David9 Comments

I couldn’t bring myself to shoot a single black and white image in Antarctica last year. To me the place was all about colour. This year it was very different. Last week I was on Deception Island in Antarctica, walking around an old whaling station in the crater of a still-active volcano. It’s a fascinating place, full of texture, contrasts, …

Desktop Wallpapers – Antarctica

In Antarctica, Travel, Wallpapers by David17 Comments

I know, it’s been a while. I hope it’s worth the wait. I stopped putting these out there because I felt I was on the edge of giving you stuff that’s already had so much exposure, or worse, of giving you photographs I wasn’t 100% happy with. Thanks for the patience. I shot these in Antarctica this month. Clicking the …

In Antarctica, Postcards From..., Travel, Within The Frame Adventures by David20 Comments

Top, Bivouacked in Antarctica. Not my warmest night ever. Antarctica and the Drake Passage are behind us now. One last day to look through our work together, then we all go separate ways.

Another day in Antarctic waters. Yesterday it was Pleneau Island and Peterman Island. This morning we woke to more sunshine and dramatic mountains rising, seemingly, straight out of ice-strewn water, black, clear and deep.

Packing For Antarctica

In Antarctica, GEAR, Travel by David40 Comments

If there’s an upside to jetlag, it’s productivity. I was up all night so I packed early. Nothing to do now but sit on my thumbs and wait. On Sunday, Nov. 25, I fly to Toronto, then Buenos Aires via Santiago, then on to Ushuaia in Tierra del Fuego, the far southern tip of South America. I’ve got a couple …
