November 14-20, 2015 : Join Roy Toft and Justin Black at Seal River, a remote wilderness lodge positioned in prime polar bear territory on the shores of Hudson Bay about 40 miles north of Churchill, Manitoba. This is a very special opportunity to intensively photograph polar bear behavior close-up in the wild. Forget the diesel-belching tundra buggies at Churchill and the crowded cruise ships at Svalbard. Our small group will photograph the bears from eye level, on foot, via short excursions onto the tundra and from the grounds of the lodge, where polar bears walk within inches of the fence line.
- Polar bears in their native habitat, easily approached on foot in a pristine and untrammeled wilderness setting perfect for first-rate photography.
- Roy Toft and Justin Black draw upon their combined forty years of experience as professional nature photographers to provide insightful guidance, recommendations, and feedback.
- Constructive critique of your images to ensure that the quality of your work improves significantly over the course of the trip.
- Wildly rugged and remote the conditions in November at this costal tundra location enables us to dedicate full days in the field getting up close and personal with Arctic wildlife.
- Excellent photo opportunities for other Arctic wildlife, including caribou and Arctic fox.
- Seal River Lodges position on Hudson Bay experiences the most clear days and nights in the region, delivering great light by day, and and unobstructed views of the nights for photography of the Aurora Borealis.
- Excellent dining, featuring the finest food and wine in the Arctic. Mealtimes will be adjusted or delayed as required to ensure maximum photo opportunities.

The workshop experience will be broad-based, emphasizing manual exposure for long lens flight photography (either hand held or with a tripod). The other major emphasis will be on image optimization with Lightroom and Photoshop. All 3 instructors are well versed in image processing, but Keith is a true expert who teaches classes on both Lightroom and Photoshop. We'll be doing formal and informal computer sessions every day. Additional workshop highlights will include environmental avian photography (one of Greg's specialties), landscapes (including sunrises, sunsets, nighttime shoots), long exposures, and silhouettes. We'll also devote some time to captive raptor photography with a fantastic collection of birds from a local raptor education and rehabilitation center (Hawks Aloft). A contribution of $1,000 !
from the workshop proceeds will be donated to Hawks Aloft to help support their important educational and research programs.
