About the workshop.

During this week long tour, the Lofoten Islands will be covered in snow from top to bottom and the landscape is about to be graced with the beauty of moon light.

You can expect long days, but never stressful. The sun rises relatively late in February as it has just returned a few weeks prior to this workshop. So 9 am sunrise and a sunset at 4pm. This gives us a nice amount of time to shoot during the day and gives us a chance to do either post-processing or similar before dinner and northern lights later in the afternoon.

We will pick you up at Evenes Airport and take you and the rest of the eager photographers to the Lofoten Islands where we will start off with a proper meet and greet. At this point, you will get to know us a bit better as well as the other participants. 

During this week you will get courses in night photography specifically oriented towards capturing the northern lights aka the aurora borealis. We will tutor in our ways of post-processing as well and in-field techniques.

This workshop is for everyone, whether you are a novice or a professional. We will easily adapt to your level and make sure you leave this workshop with new knowledge!

Included

Transport from and to Harstad/Narvik Airport Evenes (EVE), accommodation at Hattvika Lodge for the duration of the workshop, photography guiding both in the field and also post-processing session at Hattvika.

Not Included

meals are not included - but rest assured, there will be plenty of chances to buy groceries and prepared meals during this workshop. We will plan it so we can eat some meals together. Also not included are any private insurances and any costs required to travel to and from Harstad/Narvik Airport Evenes (EVE) from to to your home location.


 
 

About The Lofoten Islands

Lofoten is an archipelago famous for its dramatic scenery. A string of islands is connected by road, bridges, and tunnels. In each of these islands, you will find picturesque villages and hidden beaches. In total, the region has a population of about 24500. 

Our base camp will be at the heart of Lofoten, at the beautiful Hattvika Lodge in the small town of Ballstad. 

How to get to the meeting point?

The quickest way to get to the meeting point at Harstad/Narvik Evenes airport (EVE) is via Oslo Airport Gardermoen (OSL). Domestic flights in Norway can be purchased from SAS and Norwegian.

Should you need to come in the day before, we recommend you staying with Tjelsundbrua Hotel.

"You’ll never forget your first approach to the Lofoten Islands.

The islands spread their tall, craggy physique against the sky like some spiky sea dragon, and you wonder how human beings eke out a living in such seemingly inhospitable surroundings. The beauty of this place is simply staggering."

-Lonely Planet


 

What To Bring

- You should bring a camera you are comfortable using. We recommend you to bring a camera with full manual control as well as interchangeable lenses.

- We will be photographing a variety of locations, so having a selection of lenses to chose from is nice. A wide-angle lens, as well as a telephoto lens, is recommended. It is also highly recommended that you have an ultra-wide-angle lens with an aperture of f2.8 or faster to capture the aurora borealis. A full frame equivalent range from 14mm to 200mm is recommended.

- Since part of this tour is about capturing the night sky as well, you will need a sturdy tripod to be able to do long exposures. If you don´t own one, you can rent one from us.

- Filters are optional but recommended.

- A laptop able to run Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop is highly recommended as you´ll be able to receive personal tutoring in those applications. Make sure you have the latest versions before you arrive.

- Extras like batteries, memory cards, and lens cloth are also highly recommended. Batteries will drain fast in the cold.

Clothing

- Lofoten Islands will be at its peak of winter at this time and temperatures will most likely be cold. The weather can change very fast, so proper winter clothing is necessary. Being able to protect ourselves from the elements is key to a successful workshop.

A good set of base layersmid-layers for warmth such as fleece and down. A shell jacketand quick-dry hiking pants will help to protect against the elements as well. Good snow bootsor insulated hiking boots are advised. Having a warm hat and gloves is essential. A face cover, such as a balaclava, may also help you to be more comfortable in windy conditions.

We will spend a good amount of time outside in the dark, so bring a headlamp.


Itinerary

We will prioritize catching that dramatic light, so we will be on the move for sunrises, sunsets and of course the northern lights. 
The weather in the Lofoten Islands is highly unpredictable, so we will have to adapt as we go. You can, however, rest assured that we will visit amazing locations up to several times per day!
