Greenland’s remote and little-visited ice fjords hold a wealth of arctic grandeur. Towers, arches and walls of ancient blue ice thrust skyward from the water’s surface. Steep-walled fjords, soaring coastal mountains, tundra in autumn color, the vast Greenland Ice Sheet and the Aurora Borealis combine to form an incomparable landscape. Join a world-class team of leaders – Daisy Gilardini, Daniel Beltra and Jerry Dodrill – for this expedition to photograph this arctic wilderness in all its glory. With generous photographic instruction and attentive support throughout, explore the largest fjord system in the world – Scoresbysund, covering 14,700 square miles and penetrating over 200 miles into Greenland’s interior – aboard the three-masted expedition vessel Rembrandt van Rijn. We are booking the entire ship for our exclusive use to ensure ample space for our group both on the ship and in zodiacs.
We will make frequent landings by zodiac to photograph in morning and evening light, and as serendipity presents us with compelling opportunities along the way. In addition to the arctic landscape, we will photograph whales as we encounter them, as well as a variety of coastal and pelagic birds such as fulmars, kittiwakes and gannets. Excursions by Zodiac take us in among the icebergs. The ethereal glow of the Aurora Borealis dancing in the night sky over the iceberg-dotted fjords and bays will be the sight of a lifetime. One thing is for certain: this expedition will yield extraordinary photographic opportunities. This is a floating workshop and while underway, Daniel, Daisy, Jerry and the ship’s expedition staff will make instructive and inspiring presentations, answer your questions and offer constructive feedback on participants’ photographs during group critique sessions, with the aid of the ship’s four large LCD screens.
