Lindblad Expeditions-National Geographic Partners with B&H Photo Video

Exclusive Gear Discounts & Pre-Trip Recommendations, Itinerary-Specific Shooting Tips

NEW YORK, NY, JUNE 2014 --- Capturing once-in-a-lifetime memories has always been at the heart of the Lindblad Expeditions-National Geographic travel experience. Now, thanks to a special partnership with world-renowned retailer B&H Photo Video, Lindblad guests will have access to exclusive discounts on gear, pre-trip gear recommendations and customized shooting tips that will help them make the most of the magical scenes set to unfold before their eyes and lenses.

Each booked Lindblad guest will receive a guests-only link to B&H gear recommendations and discounts of up to 15% that are tailored specifically for the chosen itinerary.  The initiative is curated by Lindblad’s Director of Expedition Photography Ralph Lee Hopkins and B&H experts, and includes a private webinar that will offer itinerary-specific information - from the equator to the South Pacific, and from the southern to the northern Polar Regions - that will have each photographer positioned to succeed before the first image is snapped.  Guests will receive a special B&H customer service number and email where knowledgeable specialists can consult on specific gear needs and tips based on the unique conditions of the geography.  Finally B&H experts will join select Photo Expeditions to offer new gear for guests to test and lead interactive workshops onboard.

“B&H Photo Video is an unquestioned mark of excellence throughout the photography world, “ Hopkins said. “We are delighted to work with our friends there to give our guests unprecedented access to our combined and specific expertise as well as to a range of exclusive discounts that will help them outfit themselves in the best way possible for the adventures to come. This program is designed for every level of photographer and camera, and customized to fit the literal world of conditions we encounter.”

Lindblad-National Geographic’s unmatched Expedition Photography initiative is born of the company’s storied expedition heritage and alliance with the National Geographic Society.  The program features National Geographic photographers aboard every departure of National Geographic Explorer and National Geographic Orion as well as specific departures fleet-wide. Each ship in the company’s fleet is staffed with a Lindblad-National Geographic certified photo instructor, and offers a range of special photographer-designed-and-led Photo Expeditions plus a series of talks, presentations and sharing sessions with the pros onboard. The only two requirements for participation are a camera or a smart phone and a sense of adventure.
