Photo Workshop

Join our expert-led photography workshops

It is impossible to fully describe the experience of visiting the polar regions. Fortunately, our photography workshops will help you add incredible photos to your poetic descriptions. On select voyages, our professional photographers will help you get the best pictures out of your personal camera equipment with our free photo workshop activity.

The two-part process of our photography workshops

One part of our photo workshop takes place on the vessel, the other takes place in the field. The onboard segment takes the form of engaging lectures that will further familiarize you with your camera equipment and the basics of photography. The in-field segment takes place during excursions, when our guide-photographers will help you practice your photo skills in real polar conditions.

Do I have to bring photo equipment?

Yes, you have to bring your own camera gear. Choices in photography equipment are largely matters of personal preference, so there’s no way we can accommodate everyone.

You can bring more than just a basic camera if you choose, but keep in mind you may have to carry your gear over long distances. Photo equipment also has to fit safely on our Zodiacs. For detailed packing tips, check out our photography packing blog and photography packing video, made in cooperation with one of our veteran guide-photographers.

Are photography workshops included in the price of the cruise or are they supplemental?

There is no extra charge for participating in our photography workshops, but please book your spot well in advance - preferably three months prior to your departure. Our photographers are in high demand, so we need to recruit them early.
