Yesterday, Cory and I returned from the Arctic, we were on assignment for @beautifuldestinations to photograph and document Polar Bear activity in the high Arctic. Over the course of 7 days we were fortunate to see 14 bears, multiple mothers with cubs at different ages, lone males and even a male and female hunting together. Our scouts saw over 40 during the week. Through conversations with our local Inuit scouts and other wildlife experts on the ground we learnt one thing for sure, the population of bears in this area is on the rise, a great sign and some positive news for these beautiful animals.
@cory.s.martin and I witness some incredible moments during this trip, these are some of my favourite photos.
In the coming weeks @beautifuldestinations will release a short film of what we saw, I can’t wait for you to see it!
P.s for anyone curious about my camera set up for this i used...
