Cunard Photographic Journey

We recently were invited to be part of the Cunard Photographic Journey to the fjords of Norway

We embarked on our 12 day voyage to the ‘land of the midnight sun’ from Southampton on Cunard’s fabulous Queen Elizabeth. I was one of a team of three photographers that also included Landscape photographer Sir Malcolm MacGregor and Travel and Portrait Gemma Day. Our role on the ship was to host talks about photography and accompany excursions to various locations and ports during the voyage providing help, advice and some photography tuition for the passengers on board.

The cruise took us up the coast of Norway with stops at Bergen, Geiranger, Bodo, Narvik, Trondheim, Andalsnes and Haugesund before heading back to the UK.
