This year, for the very first time I travelled to Inari, Lapland in September. The northernmost region of Finland is famous for its colourful foliage during this time of the year, but I could never make it in the fall before. So, let me tell you why autumn in Lapland is now a new favourite of mine. Lapland in autumn After being bathed 24 hours per day in daylight during…
We saw only one bear from a "photographic distance" during our expedition around Svalbard at the beginning of May 2018. It looked like he was stranded on Karl-XII island, after the sea ice had already retreated a few hundred kilometres further. Read more about him here.
A photography workshop with the main goal to find and photography the mighty Aurora Borealis in Finnish Lapland, but not only this! Reindeer, the unique light of the Polar Night, and visiting the Arctic Ocean will also be some of the highlights of this trip!
This workshop will take place in July 2020 (around middle of the month) in the very north of Finland and Norway. We will explore the far north of Europe for 8-10 days. The cost and full itinerary of the workshop will be announced soon.
The Alkefjellet bird cliff is probably one of the most famous ones on the Svalbard archipelago. It is the home to approximately 100,000 Brünnich's guillemot that come there to breed after winter. Knowing this, the translation of Alkefjellet from the Norwegian language makes a lot of sense: the guillemot mountains. It is located on the west side of the Hinlopen Strait, on the island of Spitsbergen. Now let's just stop…

This was a long time dream for me so you can imagine how excited I was to step on the ship in Longyearbyen on 4 May 2018 for our departure. This first blog post about the Svalbard expedition is like a diary. I will write a few words about each day, with of course many photos. Each photo is accompanied by the settings that I used.
Join us between 6 and 12 January 2019 for this Northern Lights and Polar Night photography workshop in Utsjoki, in the very north of Finnish Lapland! We will photograph the winter landscapes in the unique twilight of the polar night, meet reindeer and their herder, and of course attempt to catch the beautiful Aurora Borealis.
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.
Aurora Photography 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!
