Polar bear, Alaska


I'll be heading back to the Arctic in November to photograph polar bears in Canada. In previous years, I've gone to Alaska for polar bears. I photographed this precocious cub several years aback. Polar bears are an amazing species to see in person, I can't wait to be back with them!


Hi Ian, the perfect polar bear image! I really like it. How did you manage to shoot from this low angle?

Hi Olaf! I was in a boat offshore, so I was close to being at eye-level with the bear on the shore.

  • We saw two different polar bears today but did not have the best sightings, so consequently I took zero photos in the blizzard like conditions. Hopefully tmr will be better!
  • Zac and I are getting ready to meet up in Churchill for some polar bear photography. Can't wait to be back with the bears! I've done all my previous polar bear photography in Alaska, this will be my first time in Manitoba, I'm looking forward to it. Zac and I have a live video event on October 30 to discuss our preparation for the trip, and we hope to send dispatches from the field while we are up there. Wish us luck!
