(PRESS RELEASE)_Photography helps capture the beauty of the world that can tell a visual story just from a series of images. In celebration of National Photography Day on August 19, Aurora Expeditions invites guests to travel to the ‘White Continent’ aboard the Greg Mortimer or Sylvia Earle (debuting in November), where they will leave with more than just memories. Aurora Expeditions is an award-winning, Australian owned expedition company designed for global discovery, with life changing experiences to Antarctica. Travelers on these voyages will be transported to enthralling subantarctic islands rich with human adventure and unique wildlife, coming across magnificent icebergs, colonies of lively penguins or even some great orcas. The memories of all these incredible sights are likely to remain for a lifetime, but images will ensure they’ll never be forgotten.
All Aurora Expeditions voyages allow photographers and videographers of any skill level to learn from an expert photography guide on each expedition. Throughout the voyages, these photography experts will provide unique lectures and presentations, share their tips and tricks to help guests improve on their skills behind the lens and help to capture their expedition experience like a professional.
Aurora Expeditions’ 2022 expert photography guides include Scott Portnelli, an Australian multi-award-winning wildlife photographer, who specializes in underwater, aerial and nature photography. A member of the Australian Institute of Professional Photography (AIPP), he has captured some of the most powerful polar images on the planet. In addition, guests can learn from Massimo Bassano, who explored and photographed 83 countries from National Geographic. Massimo has an immense passion for photography, sharing that “Looking at the planet through a lens is one of the best ways to travel and explore new places. The camera does not just immortalize your memories, but it also lets you immerse yourself into a situation that you would not look for.”
Guests can prepare to take the best photographs upon these expeditions using these tips and tricks from expedition experts.
The saying is true, after all - take a picture, it’ll last longer.
