    Saskia Coulson & Colin Tennant: Two Photographers Capturing Nature in Antarctica

    Saskia Coulson & Colin Tennant: Two Photographers Capturing Nature in Antarctica

    Photography is all about capturing the moment. From events, to landscape to scenery, wildlife and more, a photographer's goal is to always tell a story through still and moving images. 

    This is our 10th and final episode of season 2 on Design Atlas, and to celebrate, we’re going to take you somewhere extremely cold - and I mean really cold - and that location my friends is Antarctica. Meeting up with two professional photographers, we’ll be exploring what it’s really like to go on an expedition to one of the most sparsely populated regions of the world. Well, maybe not if you’re a penguin, but you won’t find many other humans down there. Antarctica, being the fifth largest continent of the world, is almost entirely covered in ice. In fact, only about 0.4% of the rocks have ever been exposed and studied due to the massive ice sheets covering the region.

    Given the distance and remoteness, Antarctica is an untouched natural paradise for photographers. In today’s episode we’ll meet with award-winning photographers Saskia Coulson and Colin Tennant. Residing in Scotland, they’ve been to Antarctica 12 times, and each time they go they’re there for at least one third of the year. We’ll learn about the equipment they use, the precautions they need to take, and challenges they face to capture the most captivating imagery, always keeping in mind the story they are trying to tell.
