Polar Bear Learning Wildlife Photography

by Roie Galitz

“My life project is Polar Bears in their environment, and if there’s one thing I’ve learned is that Polar Bears are very bright and curious,” says Roie Galitz. “That’s exactly what happened here. As I was photographing this big male for days, he was very curious about what I was doing there and mostly about the camera gear I’m using… suddenly he turned around and started to walk directly at us, we had no time and immediately drove our snowmobile out of his path, he approached the cameras and after examination from the photographer’s side and looking through the viewfinder – he carried on his path and climbed the glacier. I think he wanted to learn what it’s like to be a photographer.”
