I swear this gorgeous Polar Bear was smiling for the camera

There is so much that goes into getting an opportunity like this. From planning, traveling, knowing your gear and overcoming your fear. On this trip with @oneoceanexpeditions though, along with all the searching, our amazing spotters, and some good old-fashioned luck, it was our Captain that maneuvered our ship nearly silently and skilfully so not to alarm the bear and she approached us with curious enthusiasm. An encounter I doubt one could ever forget.

Meet Tom The Visionary
This portrait holds a special meaning for me. To date, it's one of the best portraits I've taken. It seems odd to say that about my own work but after getting to know Tom even more and after spending a few moments absorbing the image,(the printed large image needs to be seen) It affected me on a level I had not yet experienced with a portrait. In his eyes, I see compassion, wisdom, experience and integrity.

What is a Character Portrait?
For me, a character portrait is an honest moment captured that reveals a part of a person's unique character and personality. My goal is to not simply take a picture of what someone looks like, but instead, capture a glimpse into who they are. The portraits, therefore, are not typical in nature but instead can be quirky, expressive, stately reserved or even a bit uncomfortable.
One of the questions I ask my clients is "How do you want to be seen"?

This is Brandon's other Character Portrait, revealing a completely different side, the one we have all come to know so well.

Humpback Whale

Just before going down for an extended periood, the humpback whale will have an exaggerated arch and often lift it's fluke before diving.

This is a pano stitch of 12 verticle images showing the amazing scale of the landscape at Neko Harbour on the Antarctic Peninsula. Notice our ship in the mid-left on the water.....yeah. It's like that.

Cape Petrel over a frothy blue ocean

These amazing seabirds are amazing flyers. They fly over the southern ocean on the wind and wind currents created when the waves pick up and they love a good stiff breeze.
