The photographer of the month award for September 2017 goes to Finnish photographer Ghita Thomé, who sent us a selection of spectacular photos of polar bears and walruses from Better Moments’ workshop in Svalbard.
Better Moments CEO and founder Christian Nørgaard says about this shot:
“It’s always difficult to catch wild animals in their natural surroundings with beauty and respect for the animals. Ghita Thomé captured this special and quiet moment of a sleeping polar bear on Svalbard.”
“I find nature fascinating and like to take pictures of the world, big or small, around me. Special places like Svalbard I find inspiring,” says Ghita, who is an amateur photographer and now retired physiotherapist from Helsinki
