Return of the Arctic Sun

This 6-day photo workshop around Äkäslompolo in Finnish Lapland takes place just after the end of the polar night. We will have very special light conditions, because the sun appears only for short times. Before sunrise and after sunset there will be usually several hours of moody light. Photo subjects range from winter landscapes, snow-covered trees, details in the snow, huskies in action, reindeers and of course the ever-mesmerizing Aurora Borealis.

A maximum of six participants make this an intimate workshop. Each person will have a lot of time for in-depth discussions regarding photos, gear and anything else.

As always and everywhere, the weather is an unknown. The program and its order might change depending on the weather conditions.
