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!
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!
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!
This year 2017 has provided amazing displays of Northern Lights up in Northern Finnish Lapland. Check out my own 7 favourite pictures of the year.
On 6 December 1917 Finland declared its independence from Russia. This marked the birth of the Republic of Finland as we know it today. The 100th anniversary of the declaration of independence on 6 December 2017 was widely celebrated in Finland and even throughout the world. Because Finland has been giving me so much in my photography journey during the past few years, I decided to write this blog post to say: happy birthday Finland!
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.
