Portait: Ben Saunders, polar explorer

Spent today with the polar explorer Ben Saunders and his Expeditions Director, Andy Ward. Ben's about to embark on a very ambitious new polar expedition and flies out next week, I was very lucky to catch him today and take a few snaps as he was manically doing last minute packing for the trip. Fantastic guy who already achieved a lot (youngest and the third person in the world to reach the North Pole solo) but seems destined for even bigger and better things, you can read more about him here. Fantastic guy, incredibly friendly and welcoming, keep an eye out for him in the coming months.
