nopolarbears.co.uk has been setup to showcase and make available to you an exclusive set of photographs taken by Andy Barker in Antarctica.

As a child one dreams of going to Antarctica: this site gives you an insight into this continent from someone who has been privileged enough to live and work there.

Andy has always had a keen interest in photography and 16 years ago purchased his first SLR camera and headed off to Antarctica. He has subsequently visited this amazing continent every summer season since and has over wintered 3 times.

In 2005 he was awarded the Polar Medal from Her Majesty the Queen in recognition of the support he has given to Antarctic Science and Exploration.

If you have any questions or would like any information about any of the photos shown then please contact

All photos are available to purchase, please contact
