On an Adventure



Antarctica 2020

On our expedition to the Antarctic circle we were not expected to see emperor penguins. However, to our surprise this emperor penguin and a buddy had made their way possibly hundreds of miles from their colony to our location. Being such a rare occurrence, our experts rushed us in our zodiacs to catch a glimpse of this beautiful Antarctic animal. When we arrived it almost decided to dive in not to sure of our presence. Thankfully, it stayed around for 10 minutes allowing us to create beautiful compositions instead of just snapping photos of proof. This is one of my all-time favorite series of compositions of any animal I’ve been lucky enough to photograph.
