Two polar bears, a mother and her cub, clamber over the sea ice with the pink winter sky glowing behind them. “These are the moments I live for,” says nature photographer Joshua Holko.

High in the Arctic archipelago of Svalbard, Holko is on a mission to document polar bears in the wild. Braving the elements for up to 16 hours a day, he is joined on his quest by cinematographers Abraham Joffe and Dom West of Untitled Film Works. Despite technical issues and frostbite due to the subzero temperatures, the crew persisted in the depths of winter to capture the haunting beauty of this frozen expanse.

In Ghosts of the Arctic, get up close to polar bears in their natural habitat and experience the breathtaking Arctic landscape in stunning detail.

  1. catching this polar bear would be easy….
    1. Drill a hole in the ice
    2. If you don't have a Coca Cola for bait, then put 3 green peas by the hole
    3. When the bear comes to take a pee, kick it in the hole.

  2. The happened like 10 years ago, these animals will all be dead……except the polar bear if it can avoid global warming.

  3. 1. More like polar bear and seal not CAT AND MOUSE. 2.cant the guy shut up for two seconds. 3. It's nature happens everyday. 4. Enjoy the new year and that seal needs his milk Give him his MILK!!!!!!!!! 🙂

  4. Honestly, it's videos like this one that make me excited and motivated about college. I'm only a sophomore in highscool now, but I've known for years that I wanted to go into Biology and Environmental Studies. Something about nature and animals is so breathtaking; I just cannot WAIT for it to be my career😆 Beautiful video👏👏👏

  5. I feel so much awe for the photographers at NG. Such compassion. Working there is like reaching the highest point on the career. They spend days and weeks in freezing conditions, searing heat and humid jungles with all the problems they cause for the equipment. After all this they get a few minutes of their material on television. And still they go on, driven by their passion.

    Bravo!

  6. I am curious about how your DJI drone's Lipo battery can operate at that extreme cold for those aerial videos. Unless you use a nitro/gasoline power micro helicopter, I can't think of how you can fly a drone like that.

  7. To be honest I don't contribute much towards conservation. I wish I could but sometimes getting bogged with day to day living can make me forget about other important issues such as this. Thank you so much to those who make a career to specialise in this area and to those who dont but still make the effort to contribute!
