EDITOR’S NOTE: As part of our Explore Canada Like a Local campaign, we cosponsored a contest whereby one photojournalist was awarded a free trip to go on assignment up to the Arctic. Travel photographer Bill Drumm caught our attention for his progression in wildlife photography, and this tweet:
- The largest #polarbears are 12 feet tall and weigh 2,200 lbs. Or 2,365 lbs after eating a photographer. bit.ly/Q2A19z #ExploreCanada.
Together with Frontiers North Adventures, Travel Manitoba, and ExploreCanada, we sent Bill to Churchill, Manitoba, on a journey to find and photograph the world’s largest terrestrial predators. Bill noted afterwards, “The opportunity to photograph and film them was indescribable, giving me a connection to the arctic I never before felt, but now carry with me always.” The following photo essay is taken from that trip.
