Jenni Lisacek and Chase Teron are the proud founders of Artica Studios Inc. A Vancouver Island based creative company and photo tour company, called Artica Adventures. They take a small group of clients on unique, adventure based vacations and expeditions. Including sailing in Greenland, swimming with wild Orcas in Norway, meeting Polar Bears in Svalbard and Churchill, exploring remote regions of Iceland, hiking in the Canadian Rockies and the Norwegian Arctic in Lofoten and offer custom photo tours. Chase and Jenni are wildlife advocates and all of their tours are focused on respectfully viewing and photographing bait free wildlife while in their natural habitats.
Join us on one of our nature expeditions which are for all ages (18+ or 16+ with a parent or guardian. Your fitness level requirement depends on the tour and they are for non-photographers and for beginner to expert photographers. We teach a variety of lessons on an individual client basis and these trips are focused on building your portfolio if you are already an expert.
Jenni and Chase produce breathtaking media visuals for commercial clients and partners. Whether you are a Tourism Board, Private Tourist Company, Travel Agency, Apparel and Equipment Brand or are in need of fine art prints Artica Studios has a private portfolio for your viewing.
Wildlife conservation and habitat protection are shared passions of Jenni and Chase. Their ultimate goal with photography and videography is to be putting 80% of their time towards conservation efforts, and 20% exploring the Arctic and remote regions of Canada.
In addition to photography, Jenni and Chase are artists in the tradition sense. They have a portfolio of paintings which will be coming soon to the website.
All prints that you see on the website or Instagram are available for purchase.

Photographer, Videographer, Wildlife Guide, Environmentalist & Conservationist
I have always felt a deep pull towards creating and a desire to capture the beauty of nature. I'm captivated when I find little treasures of raw, hidden beauty, whether it's a beautiful fence full of suspended flowers and vines that I found when I was walking in the city, an incredible mountainous landscape with sunlight cascading through its peaks in the early morning while camping or a person with 1000 stories written across their face and eyes full of emotion and soul. My art is a collection of all the pieces of beauty I have found in the world that inspire me, fill me with happiness and bring me inner stillness and peace. My biggest passion is spending time with animals and sharing their stories in order to help people feel connected to them and care to help them.
