Join me on a unique photographic voyage onboard Ponant's Le Charcot

I have had the remarkable fortune to develop my photographic practice in some of the most inspiring locations on the planet. From the Geographic North Pole, to the most southerly maritime point ever reached - the Bay of Whales, Antarctica.


In partnership with French luxury expedition company, Ponant, Photo Ambassadors Sue Flood, Cindy Miller Hopkins and myself have been documenting the unique Polar voyages of their new hybrid, luxury icebreaker "Le Commandant Charcot" through uncharted waters.


On these voyages, we have the opportunity to collaborate closely with guests. To inspire, educate and expand their photographic skills and knowledge through workshops, lectures and exclusive one-to-one sessions


If you are eager to discover more, and would like to join me for an incomparable journey of discovery onboard Le Commandant Charcot, you will find a comprehensive drop down list of my own polar sailings - including links to further information.

As always, I am more than happy to discuss the finer details of each itinerary so please feel free to get in touch here. For reference, when you choose to reserve your trip of a lifetime, please use the reference IANDAWS at booking.
