Glad to be back on solid ground here after an unforgettable journey to Antarctica on assignment for @natgeo @sea_legacy. As luck would have it we crossed back across the Drake Passage during a huge 4 day storm that tested us all. Thanks @paulnicklen for your tireless leadership, artistic direction and belief in us. Paul says it best below. Honored to be part of this talented and humble team. Looking forward to solid ground and time with the family!
Video by @paulnicklen while on #assignment in #Antarctica for @natgeo // After four long days of enduring winds in excess of 60 knots and seas as high as 30 feet, as we crossed Antarctica’s infamous Drake Passage, we were finally able to go out on deck to capture the trailing edge of the dying storm.
The expedition vessel, Hans Hansson, piloted masterfully by Captain Dion Poncet, carried our team on the story-telling mission of a lifetime. For the first time in my career, I led a dream cast of talented individuals to tell one of the most important stories of our time. @cristinamittermeier, @ladzinski, @andy_mann, @shanemoorefilms, @craigwelch @jeffpatterson and I poured our hearts and souls into this project to tell the story of this changing land and seascape across all story-telling platforms. With @sea_legacy and @natgeopristineseas. #CCAMLR2017 #MPA #nature #naturelovers , #gratitude , #photographersforAntarctica #expedition #science #journey
