I'll admit it: the northern lights are intoxicating. For many years I've been drawn to cold, northerly destinations, both as a photographer and an adventurer. And beyond the desolate beauty and landscapes of these locations, whether it's Greenland or Canada's northern territories, it's icing on the cake that they also provide us with the best opportunities to shoot the aurora borealis.
A few years ago, French filmmaker Mathieu Le Lay reached out to me with the idea for a film. Little did we know that the journey to capture footage would take us to the top of Mt. Whitehorn here in the Canadian Rockies, twice to the remote glaciers and fjors of Greenland and to the desert dunes of Namibia. I'm thrilled to finally be able to share the trailer of the film, which premieres on Ushuaïa TV this month. Follow In the Starlight on Facebook for updates on more screenings!
After a night shooting the northern lights, and running around to try to find breaks in the cloud cover, I finally decided to return to the Naiset Huts to catch a nap since I could no longer escape the clouds. Just as I was about the enter the cabin (which was already nearly full of fast-asleep people), I spotted a few stars glowing above the mountains.
Antarctica. It always seemed so unattainable to me. But after two days at sea, and a year of anticipation, I was mesmerized when we first caught sight of a few rocks off Elephant Island through the thick fog – harbingers of our imminent arrival on the fabled White Continent. There is no wilder place on Earth, nowhere more remote, more inhospitable.
I’m proud to announce that I’ve teamed up with NiSi Filters to create a custom product for the astrophotographers out there: the Clouds-B-Gone filter! The cutting-edge optics of this filter cut through cloud cover and allow you to photograph what’s hidden beyond. You’ll never miss a display of aurora borealis or a meteor shower ever again!

As a photographer, I love to take some time each December to review what was created over the last year. I know I've taken a few images that are compelling to me if I can look at them and re-live my year through them. So, please allow me to share 16 images that are special to me, as well as the stories behind them. These are not necessarily images that others liked or that made a killing on social media, but they're shots that got me fired up creatively. Enjoy!
