About

Greenland 2012: Sea to Summit is a world first polar route from the remote east coast to the highest summit in the Arctic.

A small team of 5 will ski and pull sleds over a dramatic and diverse route, beginning at Scorsby Sund fjord, traveling through mountain ranges rarely visited by man, and finishing on Gunnbjornfjeld, the highest peak in the Watkins mountain range and the Arctic at 12,116ft. We also plan to make ascents of previously unclimbed peaks en route.

The Greenland icecap is undergoing massive change, and that makes this expedition a once in a lifetime opportunity in more ways than one. As team photographer, it is my aim to record images from these amazing landscapes and to bring them home to share with my supporters. 

I only have until the end of February 2012 to raise the $13,000 needed to secure the ground logistics in Greenland and my place on the team.  Rewards for backers include limited edition prints and pictorial 2013 calendar 'Greenland: Untrodden Landscapes'.

My heartfelt thanks for considering to support me in this project, and my wish to photograph these untrodden and disappearing landscapes of the Greenland icecap.
