Photographer works as chef at South Pole to capture incredible photos, videos

DENVER – If you’ve wondered what it’s like at the South Pole, one Denver photographer spent nearly a year there and took some unbelievable photographs.

Hunter Davis “wintered over” to the South Pole Station in Antarctica where he served as a sous chef for a group of scientists while also taking tremendous pictures and videos.

Davis worked six days a week and when his shift ended he ventured out into temperatures around 100 degrees below zero to take pictures and video.

Davis said getting a picture in those elements required him to pack his camera into a styrofoam box full of towels and warm water bottles with only a little hole for the lens to poke out of.

The South Pole features six months of pure darkness and six months of daylight.

“It’s like being on a spaceship because you go out at noon and the Milky Way is right above you and the Auroras are right there,” Davis told KDVR.
