They say the best laid plans of mice and men, well the plan was to get down to Antarctica, gets some helicopters, see some Emperor penguins and come home content. However in Antarctica, things don’t always go to Plan and you usually have to deal with what you get. In this instance the trip of a lifetime did not quite deliver. But despite the various mishaps and not reaching our goal, Antarctica is the most beautiful pristine place on the planet, and what you do get to see is quite spectacular to say the least. so focussing on the positive here is a glimpse of what you can see in Antarctica.
Ansdif you like this, then save your pennies and join us in 2016 on an expedition to South Georgia and the Antarctic peninsula, I can ensure you it will be a trip of a lifetime as you visit the most amazing parts of Antarctica and the Sun Antarctic Islands.
I have been visiting Tonga for 13 years and spent many hours on the water photographing Humpback whales and I can tell you, every time I get in the water with these magnificent creatures, I am just as excited as the first time. Tonga has so much to offer, picturesque landscapes and underwater environments makes this place paradise for Photographers, and don’t forget the added bonus that you can swim with whales. every year I see something different or have one of those unforgettable encounters. This year I had a baby whale shoot up from the depths and breach half a meter in front of me, exhilarating to say the least. This year Travel & Fashion Blogger, Laura McWhinnie from This Island life did an interview piece about her time in Tonga with us, check out the article here:
This year we started the Tongan Fluke Collective, which encourages visiting photographers to donate Fluke shots to help ID the different individual whales that come to Tonga each year. You can find out more about the program here: https://www.facebook.com/

One of the most spectacular things I have done recently is fly across the top part of Australia in a small Cesna 206 Photographing aerial views of this amazing diverse landscape. It is is so vast and vivid with colour and texture. you think you are on another planet when you look down. The expedition consisted of 33 low level flights covering more than 10,000km of some of Australia’s most remote regions. camping in remote areas of Australia only accessible by plane was a treat. it is unfathomable how big our country is til you cross it in a small plane. Although quite challenging to take photos out of a moving plane where temperature and wind speed are against you, we still manage to come back with some unique views of Australia that few people have ever seen.
