Every autumn polar bears concentrate along the shores of the Hudson Bay, eagerly anticipating the annual freeze-up which provides them access to their favorite prey, seals. Churchill, Manitoba, on the southern tip of the bay, is one of the first places where the Hudson freezes solid. That’s why Churchill is known as the Polar Bear Capital of the world and the premier place to capture portfolio worthy images of polar bears and other arctic wildlife in their natural habitat.
Days are short this time of year, but the sun never climbs too high in the sky, so it’s golden hour most of the daylight hours.
We have timed this adventure to coincide with the darkest skies of the month. With any luck, we will be able to capture the Aurora Borealis (northern lights).
Ken Lee will be there throughout the expedition to provide tips, critiques and coaching. Formal instruction, discussions and one-on-one coaching are all parts of the toolkit that Ken uses to help you reach the next milestone on your journey as a photographer.
Practice is just as important as knowledge and you will have tons of distraction-free time among a small group of like-minded individuals to practice what you have learned, refine your skills and sharpen your creative vision.
