Incredible pictures, and well put together with information and reminiscences. This isn't a small book - it is expensive but you get a lot for the money!

I went to a talk Doug Allan gave in Bristol and was captivated. The pictures shown were made so much more interesting with his humour and facts - and they were stunning to start with. An hour just wasn't enough to immerse yourself in his visions of the world, luckily his book takes you much further.

It would be a shame if this was just a coffee table book. Read it. Love it.

Ever since I saw Doug on Ocean Giants I've become fascinated with his work and have always shared an interest for the wild, especially the poles. Having worked in the Antarctic and other extreme climates for thirty years, this book marks a real achievement in the world of photography. Whether you're interested in more of what programmes such as Frozen Planet have to offer, or you want to find out more about what it takes to get these phenomonal pictures, then look no further. This collection of outstanding photos and captivating stories is a work of art and worth every single penny. Truly inspirational and well worth the wait!

A wonderful book full of amazing photographs but what makes it truly outstanding are the fascinating and detailed accounts that go with the images as well as stories behind some of the most memorable wildlife sequences ever seen on television (like a female polar bear and cubs emerging from her winter snow den).
I am a wildlife cameraman and I can tell you that Doug Allan is the modest type who doesn't indulge in exaggeration so the facts speak for themselves and you can appreciate every little detail for what it really is.
Well worth waiting 30 years for !

Freeze Frame: A Wildlife Cameraman's Adventures on Ice
A wonderful book, stuffed with an amazing range of photographs taken by Doug Allan, mainly to complement David Attenborough's TV programmes in Arctic regions over 30 years, culminaring in his work for the latest blockbuster 'Frozen Planet'. The text which accompanies the photographe is informative and entertaining. The book is beautifully printed and represents exceptional value value.

Format: Hardcover
This is a splendid collection of images from the cold places of the world - the Artic, the Antarctic and high mountains.

As you move through book you follow the career development of Doug Allen, and he gives you enough information for you to understand that he has a great talent, but that he has also managed to be in the right place at the right time on more than one occasion.

The book manages to steer a course between giving enough technical detail for readers interested in the photographic elements of the photographs, enough biological information for wildlife lovers and enough material on climate change for people concerned about the fate of these cold environments. And the pictures make all this text come alive.

As with many photographic books, a number of the images are printed across two pages and this does reduce their impact. I have to say that I don't think this a very wise move here. Many of the double page images only have about 1/5 of the image on the second page - so the whole image is compromised to some extent without there being a significant increase in the size of the whole print. Most of these split page image could have been reproduced on a single page, with no annoying valley and at almost the same size. This is the only reason for giving this book four stars.

Great picture, great story, great book, great read - slight annoying presentation.

But still recommended.
