Denver photographer Hunter Davis worked as a sous-chef for scientists at South Pole Station while also capturing amazing photos and videos.

Davis’s chef job was six days a week. When his shift ended, he ventured out to continue his photography work.

Since the temperatures were around 100 degrees below zero, Davis packed his camera into a styrofoam box full of towels and warm water bottles, leaving only a little hole for the lens to poke through.

The South Pole features six months of daylight and six months of pure darkness, which was a real benefit for this photographer.

“It felt like being on a spaceship because you could go out at 12 o’clock in the afternoon, and there’s just like the Milky Way right above you, and the Aurora’s is just like right there,” said Davis.
