Local Expert: Visiting and Photographing Antarctica
Our local expert this week is Gary Arndt from everything-everywhere.com and This Week in Travel. Gary has been a full-time traveler since 2007. He could give a Local Expert interview about a lot of places around the globe. Photographing Antarctica obviously left a big impression on Gary. It is the first place he though of when I asked him to be part of our Local Expert series.
Photographing Antarctica is probably on a lot of our “bucket lists”. The remote location makes it more difficult to visit than your average spot. Traveling to the southern tip of South America and catching a boat can certainly be an intimidating prospect!
Gary shares some interesting tips for getting on a ship and saving some money while you're at it. You might have to show up in Ushuaia without a reservation to save some bucks, so it's not for the faint of heart!
Images from Antarctica conjure up dreams of adventure on the sea and ice. Whether you want to shoot landscapes, wildlife or even decaying industrial sites, a voyage to Antarctica has a lot to offer the adventurous photographer.
