NORTHERN LIGHTS PHOTOGRAPHY HOLIDAY – Nature, culture and photo guiding
Northern lights and Swedish Lapland. The pristine wintertime landscape, Scandinavian wildlife and Sami culture all contribute to the magic of this region. We welcome you to celebrate your New Year’s Eve holiday in a unique and relaxed way far above the Arctic Circle.
Your guide will be professional photographer Peter Rosén, who has his background in biology and is associate professor in environmental science but works now as a full time photographer. He offers you an in-depth photo course on how to capture the aurora, stars, galaxies, Sámi culture, wildlife and the spellbinding midwinter landscape in the best possible way.
Peter will bring you the full story behind your beautiful images. The history of the breath taking nature and exciting culture of Lapland is an essential part of every tour. Your will learn about the Sámi culture which is an integral part of this region, the fascinating science behind the northern lights, the unique ecosystem you are in and how it has been shaped by natural forces over the millennia. The animals and vegetation are specialised to survive this climate, from the lichens clinging to rocks up to the majestic moose. Every photo you shoot captures some aspect of Lapland culture, science and history.
The fleeting nature of the Northern lights means it is naturally difficult to guarantee you will see them, but to date we have been thrilled! All previous guests participating on the 3+ day tours over the past eight years have seen and captured the northern lights in beautiful environments (75 groups).
Photo equipment free of use
The tour is part of the Canon Photography School and thanks to Canon and Manfrotto, we can offer amateur and professional SLR cameras, lenses (14-500mm), tripods, an astro star tracker – without any additional cost.
