Herbert George Ponting (1870-1935) was a professional photographer during the late 19th and early 20th century. He is most known for his work as the expedition photographer and cinematographer for Robert Falcon Scott's Terra Nova expedition, which saw Ponting journey to the Ross Sea and South Pole from 1910–1913. During this time, he captured some of the most iconic images of the Antarctic from vast ice bergs to indigenous wild animals.
