Michelle Valberg's Cape Churchill Photo-Essay

Frontiers North Adventures is pleased to announce that for the second year in a row International Award-winning Adventure & Wildlife Photographer Michelle Valberg will join our 2016 Legendary Cape Churchill Expedition as a Photo Specialist Guide.

Renowned and sought after as a landscape, wildlife and portrait artist on the global stage, Michelle has built a reputation for capturing unnoticed details that change our perception, as well as the unsettlingly vast landscapes that alter our perspective. Known for her arctic photography, Michelle has made over 30 trips to Canada’s Arctic, as well as Antarctica.

"I am thrilled to be joining the amazing Frontier's North Adventures team again this year for the Cape Churchill trip, “ said Valberg. “The whole experience including the Tundra Buggy, clients, food, staff, extraordinary landscape - including northern lights - and of course, the incredible polar bear viewing, is out of this world.  It is a once in a lifetime trip and I am so happy to be able to share it again with photography and wildlife enthusiasts from all over the world.”

By joining the Legendary Cape Churchill Expedition, Michelle lends her vast knowledge as an arctic photographer to guests who have travelled from around the world to capture breath-taking imagery of polar bears in the pristine environment found on the frozen tidal flats of Cape Churchill.

Below are just a handful of images that Michelle captured during our 2015 Legendary Cape Churchill Expedition.
