 Arctic Self Portrait 
   An Arctic self portrait taken less than 600 miles from the North Pole, while we search for polar bears near the pack ice.   Thanks for joining me on this wild adventure. It’s difficult to describe my experience in the Arctic as a photographer in residence, but I definitely have a greater appreciation for our planet. I’ve learned a tremendous amount and had the wonderful opportunity to be part of a gracious, knowledgable, and talented expedition team. I’m excited to be back on the ship headed to Antarctica next February, which would mark my 7th and final continent. Antarctica has actually been on my bucket list ever since I did a school report on it in third grade.    
   I will leave you with this quote by Paul Nicklen, a National Geographic photographer and biologist, that truly resonated with me:   
   “I want to bring back images of this remote, raw, unforgiving, beautiful, and yet extremely fragile world to you. I want you to care about these regions as much as I do, and I hope to inspire you to help avert the warming trend that is changing them quickly and irreversibly.”

I woke up at 7 am and nearly froze my fingers off taking this self portrait this morning in Central Park, hence the mean look. It took quite a bit of patience waiting for the mall to clear out and enduring the cold to get this shot. I also wanted to show off my merino wool scarf, that I commissioned   Gretchen Kreutz   to make for me after searching for a bright orange knit scarf for a year. She’s a freelance knitwear designer for Rag & Bone and has mad skills!
