Antarctica’s Adorable Emperor Penguins

Photographer David C. Schultz of West Light Images arranges photography tours of the Antarctic, helping photo enthusiasts capture pictures they’ll never forget. Six years ago he made his first trip south after seeing expedition photographer Frank Hurley’s incredible Antarctica images, which he took under some very harsh conditions.
