Beginner and advanced photographers can explore Spitsbergen in the Norwegian 
Arctic and hone their photography skills at the same time on the 11-day 
Spitsbergen Photography: Under the Midnight Sun voyage, which Quark Expeditions 
is offering in July 2023.

Inspiring guests through snow-topped mountains, massive glaciers, deep-walled 
fjords and tundra of Spitsbergen will be award-winning photographer, filmmaker 
and lecturer Chris Linder. "July is a magical time to visit Svalbard, when the 
light-filled summer days fuel a brief but intense explosion of life from tiny 
tundra flowers to polar bears, walruses, and whales," says Chris, who has 
photographed more than 50 scientific expeditions after transitioning from naval 
officer and oceanographic researcher to visual storyteller. "The diversity of 
subject matter and enchanting low-angle light make this expedition a 
photographer's dream."

Guests will enjoy this photography-themed journey aboard the 128-passenger 
Ocean Adventurer, a past winner of the Travel Weekly Magellan Silver Award for 
Best Overall Small Cruise Ship.

"We're so proud to have created this unique itinerary specifically geared to 
Arctic photographers," says Thomas Lennartz, Vice-President of Sales for Quark 
Expeditions. "The impetus for this itinerary came from our guests who've 
expressed a desire to perfect their photography skills in Spitsbergen, which is 
known as the Wildlife Capital of the Arctic. We're also pleased that our guests 
can learn from an award-winning photographer like Chris Linder who has many 
years in the Arctic."

In addition to learning amazing photography skills from an award-winning 
professional, guests can also look forward to:

    -- Presentations from polar experts including marine biologists
    -- Zodiac cruising and shore landings
    -- The Polar Plunge
    -- Kayaking
