BEHIND THE SCENES: 'Ghosts of the Arctic' DIRECTED BY Abraham Joffe

'Ghosts of the Arctic' was a passion project for Staff Pro Abraham Joffe. The kind of project that his dreams were made of. This project follows wildlife photographer Joshua Holko through the glacial, white expanse of the Arctic in -20 degree temperatures. Their goal was to venture out into the frozen beauty of Svabald and document the polar bears. Days spent driving endless miles through harsh terrain in search of wildlife left Abraham and his team, battered, bruised and sore, but in spite all that, he couldn't be happier with the footage he got for this beautiful video:
