Frequently Asked Questions: Artica Adventures

 

1. Are you tours just for photographers?

 

Answer: No, not at all! Our trips are approximately 50/50% split of photographers and non-photographers. These trips are called photo tours as Jenni and I are instructing photography lessons hands on while we explore and sail. We have non-photographers (with iPhones, etc), beginners to expert photographers on our trips. It's the perfect learning grounds where you get to immerse yourself in nature and be surrounded by great people.

 

2. What fascinates you guys about Greenland?

 

Answer: Greenland is very difficult to explore because there are no highways, there are small airports, the towns/villages and settlements are spread out quite fair. The best way to explore Greenland is by boat and foot (by air it is visually amazing as well!). It's the land that offers mountainous extreme peaks, icebergs that are as tall as skyscrapers, colourful river valleys, Arctic wildlife, and the summer sun that never sets. It's the land that needs the most attention in our destructive world today. Greenland and the Arctic are so susceptible to climate change forces that we need to focus our attention on the areas and regions that need our help the most. As photographers we have the ability to share stories with powerful images that represent climate change.

 

3. Why Artica Studios Adventure Photo Tours vs. Other Tours?

 

Answer: Jenni and I are so passionate about our tours we take small groups that are more intimate where we can connect with each one of our guests. We also pride ourselves on taking you to these remote locations that are extremely difficult to get to and otherwise unaffordable. Our tours are never over-priced as we want you to have a life changing experience and for you to share your experience (and photos) with family and friends and for them to be able to afford to have their own Artica Adventure experience.

 

Our tours are not just photography workshops, they are life changing experiences that will shape you as a person. Whatever your current understanding is of photography, our workshops will help you improve in a variety of areas, including composition, editing, business acumen, personal style development, work flow and more!

 

We are looking for positive, like-minded people to join our trips as it is most often the people who make the experience and everything else is just a bonus. We love animals and the environment and we care deeply about creating inspiration and action to help make the world a better  place. Your photos and videos from this Greenland workshop will help tell a story of the importance of the preservation of the Arctic. One of the most important aspects of photography is story telling. When you are in the Arctic Circle, you will be inspired to create more, to tell more and to share more.

 

Let's fall in love with the Arctic together. Join us to explore and photograph Greenland in 2019!
