This is a preliminary announcement for The Antarctic Quest, a 20 day photographic expedition to the Falkland Islands, South Georgia and the Antarctic Peninsula. Taking place just 13 months from now, this will be my second photographic expedition to the bottom of the world. You can read about the first trip on the page titled Antarctica 2005, view all of my published photographs from that trip on Antarctic Archive, and enjoy some behind-the-scenes images at Antarctic Snapshots. You can also read the background to our 2005 Expedition on that trips announcement page.
But, that was then and this is now. Time to consider going to Antarctica yourself in 2007, just over a year from now. Time to save up, time to dream.

This expedition in February 2007 is not a repeat of the one undertaken so successfully in December, 2005. It has a 20 day rather than an 11 day itinerary, and brings us to the Falkland Islands and South Georgia, as well as the Antarctic Peninsula. Though standing on the Antarctic Continent is a major draw, the reality is that for both landscape and wildlife photography the sub-Antarctic islands are where the action is found.
You can read a draft itinerary on this page.
All of the instructors who participated in the December 2005 Expedition have indicated that they will be joining this new adventure – Jeff Schewe, John Paul Caponigro, Steve Johnson and Seth Resnick. Other of the world's leading instructors are also discussing their participation with us. You can be assured of sharing this adventure with some of the world's preeminent photographic educators.
Firm pricing for this expedition is nearly finalized. You can figure on between $11,500 and $16,000 per person depending on the type of accommodation. This is an all-inclusive cost, covering the expedition, all meals, transfers, gratuities, alcohol during meals. and airline flights between Buenos Aires and Ushuaia, including your hotel room in Ushuaia on the night before departure.
