Could you hold your camera lens steady with a polar bear walking towards you? Or focus on two massive carnivores sparring when all you’d rather do is watch? The only way to find out is to do it, and as with all wildlife photography, learn something about yourself. That’s always the best part.
Will the northern lights mesmerize you? Probably, but you might just enjoy being enveloped in a fantasy world for a few moments. You can always capture them when you return to earth. And let’s not forget about the cute and curious Arctic and red foxes. They might just make a face for you! And there’s always the polar bear in the sea ice mist, or the apparently unaware Arctic hare that will pose for you, on purpose.
A mom and cubs may even wander by, and if you’re nice, the ptarmigan might reveal the secret polar bear they’ve saved, just for you…
