Nature photographers like Donald have to be in the right place and the right time to capture stunning images. It’s all about the perfect moment and with the light just so.
One photographer who goes to extreme is the acclaimed environmental photographer, James Balog. Once a climate change skeptic, he has since changed his stance having seen the evidence of a rapidly warming planet for himself.
What he does is take incredible pictures and videos of the dramatic losses in polar ice. His recent documentary, Chasing Ice opened earlier this month in select cinemas. It won the 2012 Sundance Film Festival’s Excellence in Cinematography award.
The trailer shows how his breathtaking pictures were taken in a very hostile environment and under extremely challenging conditions for for both man and equipment! To say that he risked his life to take such images is putting it mildly!
