Last chance for Antarctica?

My November photography workshop to the Falkland Islands, South Georgia, and Antarctica is almost full. We have one and a half twin cabins still set aside for us, but this reservation is about to expire (tomorrow!). If you've been thinking about joining us, now is the time to act!

There are apparently people outside our group ready to pay deposits on these spots so after the reservations are released while you can still try to book a place, you'll probably end up on a waiting list hoping that another passenger has to cancel for some reason. To get your name on one of these berths, email or phone Aurora Expeditions ASAP (see our booking form for the contact details). Note that final payments are due 90 days prior to the voyage (which in this case means early August).

Looks like we have a great group so far. Mostly Australians, and also several participants from North America. Wherever you live, I hope you can join us!

News about this did the rounds last week on Twitter, Facebook, and the Antarctica 2010 site, but for some reason I missed posting it here!

Workshop coverage: link-o-rama!

More and more photography workshop calendars are turning up around the web. Photoworkshoptours.com has been growing for a while, and now pixelcal has also arrived on the scene. Of course my workshops are listed on both!

Other recent mentions we've had include:
  • Photographer Glenn Guy has kindly mentioned the Antarctica workshop on his Blue Sky Photography blog.
  • Martin Bailey (my fellow instructor on the trip) and I recorded a conversation about it which is now Episode 232 of Martin's podcast (available through iTunes or directly through that link).
  • If you can speak French there was a short mention of it at Pixfan last month.
Thanks to everyone who has been helping to spread the word! As we find more references I will try to post return links here.

Antarctica bookings are steadily progressing so if you're considering coming with us, don't put it off for too long!


And for those of you not considering Antarctica (or even those who are) please remember that I also have a series of other photo workshops/tours in Victoria during 2010.
