Andy Skillen

Polar bear

Andy has spent much of his career flat on his face in the mud, snow, water and, well, anything else that happens to be there, in his quest to photograph grizzly and polar bears on foot. As one of just four photographers worldwide to take people to see the Arctic giants on their terms, as well as frequenting a whole host of ‘off the beaten track’ brown bear locations, Andy has a unique take on what it is to work with and photograph these icons of the wilderness.

Join Andy to hear about some of the more hair-raising moments he has experienced in his pursuit to record ursine behaviour.
