Today I’m excited to announce a new photography adventure for June 2017, to a location we have not previously run a photo workshop: Russia! In fact the Russian Far East, and to be more specific: the Sea of Okhotsk which is north of Japan.
Like our recent polar workshops this trip is ship-based: we live aboard our ship and make daily outings by Zodiac as we explore the region. Strictly speaking this is a “sub-arctic” voyage, although we do expect to encounter ice part-way through the voyage. However it is a smaller group of photographers than our other recent voyages. Like those I’m running this expedition alongside my friend (and fellow pro photographer and tutor) Michael Snedic, but we’re limiting this group to only 10.
We expect to encounter literally millions of birds during this voyage. Iconic species such as Horned and Tufted Puffins (distinct from their Atlantic cousins), Steller’s Sea-Eagle, and many many more. Lots of mammals too, from the brown bear to the Steller’s Sea-Lion, the Ringed Seal (one of my personal favourites), and many more!
