Frontiers North Adventures Welcomes Renowned Photographer Michelle Valberg as Photography Guide on Legendary Cape Churchill Expedition

WINNIPEG, MB--(Marketwired - May 31, 2016) -  Frontiers North Adventures is pleased to announce that for the second year in a row International award-winning Adventure & Wildlife Photographer Michelle Valberg will join our 2016 Legendary Cape Churchill Expedition as a Photo Specialist Guide.

Renowned and sought after as a landscape, wildlife and portrait artist on the global stage, Michelle has built a reputation for casting unnoticed details that change our perception, as well as the unsettling vast landscapes that alter our perspective. Known for her arctic photography, Michelle has made over 30 trips to Canada's Arctic, as well as Antarctica.

By joining the Legendary Cape Churchill Expedition, Michelle lends her vast knowledge as an arctic photographer to guests who have travelled from around the world to capture breath-taking imagery of polar bears in the pristine environment found on the frozen tidal flats of Cape Churchill.

"We are very excited that Michelle will be joining us again this year for our Cape Churchill expedition," said John Gunter, President & CEO of Frontiers North Adventures. "This adventure is our most exclusive and in-depth departure, with only 40 guests per year granted access to Cape Churchill in Wapusk National Park. Offering our guests guidance from a high-calibre photographer like Michelle will allow them to return home with the high-quality polar bear images they are seeking."

Cape Churchill, located inside Wapusk National Park, is known as the best location on earth to view and photographer polar bears in the wild. Frontiers North Adventures is the only company in the world who can offer this exclusive arctic expedition to the heart of polar bear country.

It is a once in a lifetime trip and I am so happy to be able to share it again with photography and wildlife enthusiasts from all over the world."
