              from Stephen Gorman / Added

              In partnership with Photo Life Magazine, Cruise North Expeditions, and Adventure Canada, Stephen Gorman led a two week photography expedition in the Arctic this past summer. Based aboard an ice-hardened vessel built for polar waters, the expedition traveled throughout the eastern Arctic, from Cape Dorset and Killiniq on Baffin Island in the Canadian Arctic to Ilulissat Icefjord and Kangerlussuaq on the west coast of Greenland. Along the way the expedition explored ancient Inuit settlements, saw whales, icebergs, and polar bears in abundance, and visited remote Inuit villages that receive few, if any, visitors in any given year. Here is a selection of Stephen's photographs from the expedition. The soundtrack is "Wicked Twisted Road" (Reprise) by Reckless Kelly.

When I found out the two babies were here I couldn't resist doing a portrait shoot with them. This was their first real shoot, we're sure they will both be big stars.
