After countless nights under the stars for the past 10 years, I have gathered a very large collection of aurora photos. Check out my favourite ones here, from all over the world!
We just returned from Utsjoki in the far north of Finnish Lapland, where we held a very successful Northern Lights photography workshop. Together with Australian photographer Lisa Michele Burns and local company Aurora Holidays, we guided a group of 7 enthusiastic photographers from all over the world through the wonderful landscapes of Finnish Lapland during the so-called Polar Night. First things first: northern lights photography workshop The Aurora (aka the…
For several seasons I wanted to make a real time northern lights video, but due to the lack of adequate equipment, I did not get a chance to do it. In March 2019, just before my last trip of that winter season, I acquired a Sony A7s mirrorless camera, which is famous for its clean very high ISO capabilities. Time to shoot my first real time aurora video!
The solar minimum may be on its way but it does not mean that we will not see Auroras anymore in Lapland. A coronal hole created enough disturbance to spark bright Auroras in Inari. Check out all the pictures from the best northern lights display that I have ever witnessed.
Northern Lights Tours are the best way to increase your chances to see the Aurora. In January, my Italian guests booked me 2 nights in a row for a tour, and we were in for quite some adventures. Check out how it went!
With unreliable weather forecasts, we had a very challenging Northern Lights Excursion around Inari with my guests from Australia. They came from so far away and it was their only chance to see the Aurora Borealis! Check out how we find the Northern Lights between Inari and Utsjoki after so much driving!
When I travelled to Lapland at the occasion of the Inari Camera Borealis festival, I also guided a few guests to see and photograph the Aurora. On 18 November, despite the rather weak forecast, we were in for a treat!
Many people think that in Europe, it is only possible to see Aurora, aka the northern lights, deep in winter, and north of the Arctic Circle. However, under the right conditions, this is not necessarily true. I show you here that yes, you can see Aurora in south Finland for example.
Where is the best place to see Northern Lights is a question that is frequently asked to me. I have done extensive research before travelling myself to see the Aurora, and have concluded that Inari is the best place for this. There are scientific, cultural and touristic reasons for this.
