Keith Ladzinski

A young cub nipping at mom’s heels playfully on the frozen sea ice of the Svalbard Archipelago under the midnight sun. This adorable moment was fleeting, photographed on a brief rest the pair took as they roamed the sapphire landscape in search of food. As heat index continues to rise the summer season in the Arctic has become elongated, making it debatably the hardest season for bears who depend upon sea ice for ambush hunting. Polar Bears are the icon of the Arctic, but are exceptionally vulnerable to the effects climate change is taking on our planet.

BIO: Keith Ladzinski is a contributing photographer at National Geographic and an Emmy nominated director. His early subjects mirrored his polarized passions, skateboarding in the city and exploring the quiet mountains of Colorado. One, built around an immersed subculture, skating from concrete place to place with friends, trespassing, shooting photos in the dead of night with rushed artificial light setups and running from security guards. The other, alpine starts in the mountains, long approaches alone while patiently hunting for natural light, thoughtful composition and searching for wildlife. It was an unintentional education in two styles of photography and wasn’t long before the two merged, initially into his love for rock climbing. It was here that Keith forged his roots, rising quickly to the top in the world of extreme sports and working tirelessly with the industry’s top athletes, clients and ad agencies.

Keith lives in Boulder, Colorado with his Wife Dana and son Gray.
