Shoot the Light’s Charles Glatzer applauds recent ground-level polar bear photo shoot at Seal River

Are you ready for this?

Shoot the Light is all about capturing subjects in that perfect light, which as you know, can be quite elusive.

Thankfully, our lodges at Dymond Lake and Seal River have been blessed with an abundance of fabulous lighting over the seasons!

Much to the polar bears’ delight, temperatures have recently dropped well below normal, and along with the cold weather have come welcome clear skies from the northwest.

Charles Glatzer deemed his photography adventure here a few days ago today as one of the finest ground-level bear photo shoots we have done with him at Churchill Wild, despite wind chill temperatures that reached -35C!s

Red foxes are in abundance, but the arctic foxes should be here soon!

World-renowned professional photographer Charles (Chas) Glatzer was among the first group to experience our sold-out Arctic Safari in 2011 and he had glowing praise for Churchill Wild.

Just wanted to say thanks again for a fabulous trip. As in past years, the staff and service was impeccable, the lodge inviting, and meticulous. And, the meals WOW! I just hope CalmAir does not start weighing guests on the return flight.

Your family’s warm heart and good nature make all who visit Churchill Wild feel like you have invited us into your home. Your family values obviously carry over to your business, as both are equally beautiful and a pleasure to be around.

Our guides Andy and Tara, both highly skilled professionals, always put our safety first. We often got close, but at no time did anyone ever feel the least bit threatened, surely a testament to their years of experience and incredible knowledge. Rest assured I will be back again with more groups for years to come.

Thank you Charles!
