CHASING NORWAY


Welcome to one of the most adventurous trips, this will not only be a photo workshop to be able to capture the queen of the night, the beautiful northern lights, it will be a real journey to discover the fascinating Arctic landscape, both during the day and during the night.
The affected area will be northern Norway, a vast area where it will be possible to range from the beautiful Lyngen Alps, to the Tundra in the far North. Everything will be dictated by the laws of mother nature. Once we have identified the area of interest we will work well on that. There will be the possibility of making a trip both itinerant and more stationary depending on the area of interest. When we are in our home the time will be used to study the area well and work on the shots of the past days; groups can be both private and mixed with a maximum of six people.
The Northern Lights is a natural phenomenon that to be photographed well you need time, for this you need at least seven nights; the Arctic is a world apart, with its times, its storms and its magical days, my goal to make you live its splendor at 360°. Your journey is my priority.

After a hearty breakfast we will set off north. We will drive our cars along the coast, crossing beautiful fjords, depending on the winter period there will be different situations in terms of landscape, a combination of light and atmosphere very special and suggestive. We will make some stops along the way to admire and photograph the wonderful charm of the Lyngen Alps, the beautiful mountains overlooking the fjord that during sunny days create a completely symmetrical reflection, a fairytale landscape. We will arrive at our destination in a beautiful house in front of the fjord where we will spend two nights to be able to capture the best of the surrounding area. Once settled we will go out to shop at the super market. Afterwards we will wait for the right moment to go out and go hunting for the Northern Lights. dinner and overnight at home.
