Video: Photographing Polar Bears in One of the Most Extreme Environments on Earth

While they donโ€™t get the same level of recognition as explorers and extreme athletes, adventure and wildlife photographers also go to the ends of the Earth to get that perfect shot. Takeย nature photographer Joshua Holko for instance. In this video, we join him on an expedition to Svalbard in Norway, where he battles some harsh arctic conditions to photograph polar bears in their natural environment. The place is beautiful and unforgiving, and sometimes he must brave the cold for hours to get the photo he is looking for. But when everything comes together, it can be spectacular.
