Mid of September, season comes slowly to an end at Lofoten, and with the autumnal equinox on Sep 21 the likeliness for Northern lights to be visible at the nightly sky increases significantly. While the weather is to some extent unpredictable at that point in time, photographers will be rewarded with ever changing light moods and soft light during sundowns.
Scenery is dramatic – rough mountains rising steep from the long fjords, beautiful beaches – Lofoten is a dream location for any landscape photographer, and we are more than happy to share our knowledge with you in this Northern part of Norway.
Date Sep 22 – Sep 29, 2018

We will choose accomodation that is typical for the country we’re visiting. All places are carefully selected to allow for best overall experience. Our photo adventure starts right outside the front door.
Date & Duration
The workshop takes place close to the end of Northern lights season. As we will spend almost a week at Lofoten, the likeliness to observe Northern lights during one of the nights is pretty high.
Group Size & Price
The workshop fee is reasonably low given the group size. With a small group for seven participants, there is sufficient time to instruct and support each attendee individually.
Sun will be shining from approx. 6:45 am to 7:15 pm. Our main focus will be on photographing landscapes during sunset. During the nights we will watch out for Northern lights.
We will meet at Leknes, Lofoten, Thursday evening, and will take our rental cars to head towards beautiful Reine. During the entire workshop, we will stay in local fisher huts close by.
We will take photos of the most beautiful landscapes from sunrise to sunset (if weather conditions permit). We will visit the famous beaches of Skagsanden, Ramberg, Utakleiv and Haukland. If conditions support we can also include Kvalvika, Bunes and Horseid beach. The visiti of the wooden church of Gimsøy will be another highlight of our workshop.
In the late evening hours, we will watch out for Northern lights that are likely to be visible in case of clear skys.
Our accomodation is located in one of the most scenic areas of Lofoten, so we can start photographing right outside the front door of our traditional fisher huts.

…to express everything with only a few words: simply impossible! Lofoten are breathtaking! The workshop was perfectly organized from arrival until departure, and I learned a lot with regard to using filters in landscape photography. Big thanks for this great experience, Jens, and hopefully I will be able to join one of your upcoming workhops again!Klaus Porada
