A Photographers Travel Log

Tim Schumm, Neko harbourWe are all familiar of the scene of a couple torturing their friends with slides displaying their latest horrid travel photos, while relating mind numbing stories of using Pepto Bismal because the food was ‘so different.’

Tim Schumm and his girlfriend Debbie Garside are not that couple. They took an amazing journey through Argentina, Chile and Antarctica, and one of the best parts of their travel are their posts and photography from the trip.

Tim’s photography is amazing, and the images from their trip are what you expect in National Geographic. You really get a ‘feel’ for the locations that Tim shoots. Tim’s posts are very interactive and he willingly takes the time to answer your comments and questions on his post.

I feel very fortunate that the interactions I have had with Tim are like sitting down and having a conversation over breakfast. You can follow Tim’s travels on ACDSee’s blog. Tim is a guest  “Pro Star” poster on the ACDSee blog. The Pro Star series is:

a place where the pro community will be able to share their stories, travel journals and photos from around the world.


The posts concerning Tim’s travels are well worth the time to read, and there are a lot of great images. The travel posts are as follows:

  1. Tim and Debbies travel itinerary (at a glance)
  2. Sick N Twisted
  3. Argentina, equestrian wonderland
  4. Dust, Wind, Drama and Spanglish
  5. Ushuaia, Bottom of the world
  6. Polar Star, the ice breaker
  7. Exploring a Cerulean Land of Ice and Stone
  8. Neko Harbour, Exploring the Penguin Rookery
  9. Zodiac, the Leopard Seal’s Toy near Danko Island

Leopard Seal before biting the ZodiacThe last entry about the Leopard Seal details an encounter with a Leopard Seal as big as the Zodiac that carried the group. Tim calmly relates an interesting game of ‘stalk the Zodiac’ the Leopard Seal plays. I knew they were big, but I did not realize they tipped the scales at a ton.

You can view additional images from his trip on the UseFilm.com website. Thanks to ACDSee for having Tim post his photos and relate his travels.

    Those are excellent photos. Yes, elephant seals can get fairly large. They received their name because of the males snout. It resembles an elephant. I’ve always been fascinated by them. šŸ˜‰

    I sent you an email.

    Mike – Thanks for the stumble. After all this time when I hear ‘stumbled’ I still think of a drunk person with a bottle of wine slurring ‘didja hear da one about . . . ‘

    teeni – Tim is a very cool photographer who is very willing to interact with the public.

    Opal – I just didn’t realize how big they were . . . wow. Tim’s travel log has me wanting to visit secluded locations to take photographs.
