The Classic Norway

Lofoten Photo Workshops

Do you find it hard to get the pictures as beautiful as the real life experience?

We will teach you the secrets of the pro-photographer, and get you comfortable using the manual mode on your camera. You’ll learn how much more fun photography is when you take control, and the pictures you shoot come out the way you planned them. We also pride ourselves to say we can offer some of the best locations a photographer could possibly want.

 

We will bring you to the next level in photography.

We provide great sceneries for nature photographers, classroom sessions to enhance your skills and top notch camera gear for you to try out with your camera on location.

 

The Photo-workshops are presented to you in these outstanding Classic Norway locations in collaboration with pro-photographer Thomas Eckhoff and Interfoto Norge through the year and shifting seasons.

 

Nyvågar, and the eastern Lofoten

They say staying here is like having a small house in Lofoten. It’s idyllically located at the Lofoten Sea, in the historically important area called Storvågan. The scenery just outside the doorstep invites you to bring out the camera. We’ll stay out beyond the magic hour for a chance of chasing auroras here and on our photo excursions to Henningsvær and Gimsøy in the eastern Lofoten.

We’ll explore the hidden secret Nusfjord, combined with the world famous Reine and its iconic Olstinden mountain that rise straight out of the salty fjord. Drizzled with authentic fishermen cabins, framed by white frosted peaks. The intimate authentic fishermen villages offers the most beautiful vistas, great hikes and awesome opportunities for the dedicated landscape photographer.

Dancing auroras over Henningsvær, Lofoten. Check out the Thomas Eckhoff photo-workshops in Lofoten islands

In the very mouth of the fjord, frequently touched by stunning auroras, there is a charming fishing village with 400 inhabitants. Behind the islets that make up Henningsvær, mighty mountains circled by white tailed eagles rise from the salty waters of Lofoten. Here you’ll find small cosy shops, galleries and eateries. A living fishing community with cheery residents. Henningsvær offers great sceneries for landscape/seascape photography, and we’ll stay out way beyond sunsets chasing auroras.

What to bring

 

  • Clothes for the season. For winter, we recommend wool undergarments and protective layers of outdoor clothes to keep you dry and warm during sessions. Expect snow and temperatures below freezing. If you don’t already have the proper clothings, ask your local outdoor reseller for advice.

  • Camera gear. For the best outcome, we recommend you to bring a DSLR camera. If you have a  widangle lens, a telephoto lens and a tripod it will enhance your experience. If you don’t own the extreme lenses, no problem. Interfoto will make sure you get to try it out on our workshops.They even offer special prices for registered clients.

  • Mac/PC with editing software. We recommend Adobe Lightroom for the best experience
