A new photography-themed voyage in Spitsbergen has been released by Quark Expeditions for the Arctic 2023 sailing season, aboard the 128-passenger Ocean Adventurer.
Beginner and advanced photographers can explore Spitsbergen in the Norwegian Arctic and hone their photography skills at the same time on the 11-day Spitsbergen Photography: Under the Midnight Sun voyage, which Quark Expeditions is offering in July 2023.
Inspiring guests through snow-topped mountains, massive glaciers, deep-walled fjords and tundra of Spitsbergen will be award-winning photographer, filmmaker and lecturer Chris Linder.
“July is a magical time to visit Svalbard, when the light-filled summer days fuel a brief but intense explosion of life from tiny tundra flowers to polar bears, walruses, and whales,” Linder said. He has photographed more than 50 scientific expeditions after transitioning from naval officer and oceanographic researcher to visual storyteller.
“The diversity of subject matter and enchanting low-angle light make this expedition a photographer’s dream.”
“We’re so proud to have created this unique itinerary specifically geared to Arctic photographers,” said Thomas Lennartz, Vice-President of Sales for Quark Expeditions. “The impetus for this itinerary came from our guests who’ve expressed a desire to perfect their photography skills in Spitsbergen, which is known as the Wildlife Capital of the Arctic. We’re also pleased that our guests can learn from an award-winning photographer like Chris Linder who has many years in the Arctic.”
In addition to learning amazing photography skills from an award-winning professional, guests will experience presentations from polar experts including marine biologists, Zodiac cruising and shore landings, The Polar Plunge, kayaking and more.
Prices for the 11-day itinerary start at AU$14,000 per person twin share.
