Winter Extreme

This 6-day photo workshop around Äkäslompolo in Finnish Lapland takes place just at the end of the polar night. We will have very special light conditions, because the sun appears only short times. This does not mean that it would be 22 hours darkness. Before sunrise and after sunset there will be several hours of moody light. During the workshop we will concentrate on winter landscapes, snow-covered trees, snow details 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.
