STANLEY

Aaron Stanley has experienced Antarctica in many ways – a scenic flight, an exhibition cruise and most recently living and working at Davis Station. The scenic flight was a great introduction to the icy continent, a round trip from Melbourne to welcome in the New Year. Then testing the waters, Aaron embarked on a two week exhibition cruise down the Antarctic Peninsular, crossing into the Antarctic Circle. After leaving his job as an Aircraft Maintenance Engineer Aaron was successful in obtaining a contract job with the Bureau of Meteorology as a Technical Officer – Engineer / Weather observer.  With a few months training he found himself flying down to Antarctica again, however this plane landed and Aaron hopped off to spend an amazing 13 months at Davis station. His main role was to maintain the automatic weather station network, carry out daily weather balloon releases, routine weather observations and daily life as an expeditioner. Aaron enjoys severe weather, landscape, wildlife, photojournalism and travel photography.
