The Story

Join us for a truly exclusive expedition into the Canadian Arctic to witness Polar Bears. An all-inclusive secret cabin will be our home as we photograph Polar Bears in this unique setting. Limited to a small, exclusive group of only 6 guests, to ensure an intimate setting for each participant. Secure your place today for an unforgettable venture into the remote Canadian Arctic.

Our journey will begin in Churchill, Canada where we will enjoy a welcome meal with Martin and our group.  From there we will travel north via Zodiacs and ATVs to our remote cabin. Here we will settle in to our home away from home before Martin shares tales of living with Polar Bears made famous from his documentary "33 Days Among The Bears".

This 8-day arctic adventure aims to show you the often-misunderstood beauty of the Polar Bear as they playfully play together in the summer Fireweed. Open your eyes to a new world, using photography as a creative medium we will gain a deeper understanding of our relationship with the mighty Polar Bear. 

Throughout this trip, participants will be given the opportunity to delve into the fundamentals of nature and wildlife photography and photo editing with Martin Gregus. The trip will also host a variety of masterclasses and talks delivered by Martin and your Expedition Leader. This expedition promises a truly unique and once in a lifetime adventure with a true master of his craft.

STORYTELLER

Martin Gregus

The Arctic: Polar Bears in Fireweed

Why Travel With Martin?

His journey with photography started at the age of 7 and rapidly evolved after moving to Canada in 2004, where he received his first camera. Martin's keen eye sees patterns and movements in landscapes that many overlook, capturing the beauty of ordinary scenes and once-in-a-lifetime moments. His work tells the story of our planet, filled with detail, natural dynamics, and a creative transformation of nature into visual art.

As the youngest member of the Gregus Creactive Group, Martin has honed his skills in wildlife photography, often using custom equipment, remote cameras, and camera cars to capture the perfect shot. His talent has been recognised globally, with accolades from prestigious contests like the Wildlife Photographer of the Year and publications in National Geographic, Canadian Geographic, and BBC Wildlife Magazine.

Martin's contributions to the field extend beyond photography. He has exhibited his documentary and street photography, delivered presentations, led youth camps, and now operates as a Director of Photography and drone pilot with Avia Eye. His collaborations with Photo Fabrica and Matko Pictures continue to bring exceptional visual stories to life.

Martin's philosophy is simple yet profound: adventure awaits when you're willing to jump for it. His work not only showcases the splendor of wildlife and nature but also inspires a deeper appreciation and understanding of our planet’s diverse habitats.

The Arctic: Polar Bears in Fireweed
“Thanking the stars I found Airguides and Jono Allen's trip. We were totally taken care of! Paul answered all our questions and took care of the details so all we had to do was get there. Jono is an amazing, talented photographer who created a special group experience. The WHALES were mind blowing. What a gift to be in Tonga staring into the eye of a baby whale! This trip was a lifelong dream come true. I highly recommend it so much we’ve already signed up again for next year!"

"The Airguides trip to Tonga to swim with humpback whales was the experience of a lifetime. I have traveled all over the world, and nothing compares to being in the wild, rustic, deep blue waters of the South Pacific while interacting with whales and their calves. A wonderful and caring team made our adventures stress free. Absolutely amazing, so much so, that I am doing it again this year! Thanks a million Paul, Jono, Al, Alistair, Christian and Polly!"

“ We recently organised our trip to Heron Island with Bibi and Paul as a last minute getaway. Seamlessly dealt with and an added bonus of having a world-class photographer/ free-diver as our story teller. The trip has only whet our appetite for more positive and relaxing experiences with the Airguides team- Awesome “
