Many of Zapwater’s first clients were in the digital photography industry. Charter clients included Moab Paper and RIP manufacturer ErgoSoft. As Zapwater continued to grow and work in other industries, the photo industry remained a special place in my heart. Every year, I looked forward to my trips to industry shows such as CES, PhotoPlus and PMA.

So when I was given the opportunity to be a real photographer, I jumped at the chance.

Recently, one of my clients, renowned wildlife photographer Andy Biggs asked me to tag along with him on a Photographic Polar Bear Expedition. Of course, I said yes.

On Tuesday, November 11, I be joining Biggs, a BBC Wildlife Photographer of the Year Finalist, and a dozen other photographers on a trip to the Churchill, Canada and the arctic tundra. Yes, that is pretty much the North Pole. Just for reference, Churchill is Canada's only port to the Arctic Ocean.

Today, I will be packing in all of my new gear from SONY into my gura gear bag and preparing for a once in a lifetime trip. A huge thanks to SONY for lending the group some of their new products to test out on the polar bears. Some of the gear SONY sent us includes a DSLR-A900 and SAL-300F28G Lense, as well as some of its other new products. I’ll be sure to get some great shots!

I’ll be be posting about the trip daily on Zapwater’s blog. So definitely make sure you check back for updates.
