We go on an Arctic adventure with wildlife pro Rick Tomlinson

I specialize in guiding sailing and high-latitude private photography expeditions on vessels that explore remote areas, offering advice to passengers and documenting their voyage for books and photo albums. 

This series was taken while guiding on two different high-latitude assignments, while working as a guide with Secret Atlas, who provide small-ship micro-cruise expeditions to the remote areas of the Arctic: one in Svalbard/Spitsbergen, the other in Greenland. Each of these excursions lasted about two weeks.
