I have been meaning to announce a new workshop to the Lofoten Islands for sometime now but due to my travel commitments it has been sitting on the back burner along with a number of other projects. The Lofoten Islands are approximately 100 miles north of the Arctic Circle, west of Norway. The village of Reine on the island of Moskenesoya will be our base for six nights situated in some of the most picturesque mountain scenery rising precipitously out of the fjords. Reine has often been described as one of the most beautiful places on earth. If we are lucky and blessed with clear skies, we will be able to witness the Aurora Borealis and the magic of the Northern Lights as they flicker across the night skies. Besides the incredible wealth of photographic locations in the vicinity of Reine, we will use local Fjordskyss ferry service to Vinstad and to the tiny hamlet of Kjerkfjorden, both of which are surrounded by towering granite mountains. Our private transportation will allow to access some of the iconic beaches near Leknes which might be covered in snow.
During March, the days are short with sunrise at approximately 6:30am and sunset around 6:00pm. Given our northern location, the sun will be low in the sky providing soft, magnificent light conditions, for all day photography. Please note that due to the initial expressions of interest and subsequent bookings the trip is already sold out. If you would like to be added to the wait list please just drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
