Herbert George Ponting (1870-1935), British photographer, operating a camera on a tripod in January 1912 as official photographer and cinematographer on the British Antarctic Expedition (1910-1913). Also known as the Terra Nova Expedition, the primary expedition objectives were scientific. Led by Robert Falcon Scott, the shore party of 34 spent two seasons exploring on and around the Ross Ice Shelf. Scott and four others died in 1912 returning from their attempt to be the first to reach the South Pole. Ponting's 1700 photographic plates, some published in 'The Great White South' (1921), are now held by the Scott Polar Research Institute.
