Fast Company's Co.Create profiles the work of Antarctica cinematographer and resident Anthony Powell, who most recently shot the documentary Antarctica: A Year on the Ice.

Says Powell of his work, "It took a few years of trial and error to figure out how to make my cameras work in 60-degree-below-zero weather. When I’d try to set up the LCD viewfinders, the liquid inside would freeze solid. I’d hold a corner of my hand to function as a view finder but I could only do that a couple of times before my hand would go numb from the cold. At a certain point you just point the camera in the right direction and hope you’re doing it right."
