Kyle O'Donoghue, cameraman and adventurer, is treking to the South Pole

A father and son, Robert and Barney Swan, were treking to the South Pole using entirely renewable energy resources.  Sadly father, Robert, had to return to base camp, but Barney is plugging on and with him is Kyle O'Donoghue, cameraman and adventurer.

Kyle O’Donoghue, team cameraman, has plied his trade as a freelance cameraman and director. His adventures have taken him down the last unpaddled tributary of the Amazon, in search of a lost underwater city in Zanzibar and deep into the rain forests of Madagascar to film the elusive Aye Aye. Over the last 6 years he has also joined Polar Explorer, Robert Swan, in the Antarctic, to document climate change on the Antarctic Peninsula filming in one of the harshest environments on earth. Kyle is an avid rock climber with lots of climbing experience in South Africa, Mt Whitney USA, trekking in Cordillera Blanca, Peru, Yosemite, and Joshua Tree. Kyle’s extensive filming in harsh conditions and mountain experience makes him the ideal cameraman to take along.
