THE DESTINATION

This cultural photography workshop will take place in the very northern part of Norway; an arctic landscape of snow-covered plains, vast lakes, and rugged mountain ranges. Wondrous wintery vistas will form a striking backdrop for the reindeer trek that we’ll be witnessing and photographing.

ACCOMMODATION

During this trip, we’ll be living with the Sami people. We’ll sleep in traditional lavvu tents, cook on open fires, and spend our days in the stunning outside. This ensures a full immersion into the experience. It’s no ordinary touristic experience!

THE PHOTOGRAPHY

Your photographic opportunities on this workshop are phenomenal. There’s a wealth of stories to tell through our lenses. You’ll be living with the Sami people, which offers a unique insight into their traditions and way of life. And, of course, a chance to document this with your camera. During the trek, you can photograph the reindeer as they speed through the snow-covered landscape. And then there’s the snow-topped, otherworldly landscapes themselves; an absolute treat for any photographer.

YOUR WORKSHOP

There’s a maximum of four participants on this photography workshop in Norway, and you’ll be guided by two professional photographers. This means you’ll enjoy very personal tutoring; a brilliant opportunity to learn at your own level, sharpen your photography skills on all levels, and come away with an impressive portfolio of images.
