KEYNOTE SPEAKERS

Dominic Barrington | After 23 years working as an international geologist and mining industry professional, Dom has spent the last 10 years working as an award-winning Polar Expedition Photographer for Hurtigruten in both the Arctic and Antarctic. Dom will be sharing the true Polar experience; what to expect when venturing to the Polar regions, followed by a presentation of his award-winning photography to showcase the magic of the Polar regions. Take home some pointers on how to capture breath-taking photos.

Anika Paust | Growing up in Perth, Western Australia, a life in the high Arctic was never plan A for Anika, although a fascination with the Polar regions started early, after seeing pictures from Qantas’ flights over Antarctica. After studying Aerospace Engineering, the plan was to travel for a year before starting a job in that field. This trip took her through Northern Europe to Svalbard, ending in Longyearbyen. Now, 9 years later, Anika is excited to still be living in the most incredible place in the world, and representing this fantastic area and Hurtigruten’s incredible products everyday. Listen to Anika as she talks about what, where and why Svalbard should be at the top of your bucket-list.
