ITINERARY

After running over 200 workshops to date and many years of photographing landscapes across Scottish Highlands and Norway
I learned that weather is always unpredictable, local and ever-changing and it does NOT care about our itineraries at all!

The best way to run successful landscape photography workshop is to be flexible, work around the weather and adapt to current conditions.
Days will be planned individually during our workshop after checking latest weather and Aurora forecasts so we can be
at the right time and place for best lighting/weather opportunities.

No-one is able to predict or control weather therefore I can't guarantee anything weather-wise or Aurora-wise but I can promise
to help you photographing the best opportunities that weather has to offer during our workshop.

DAY 1

We will meet in Harstad-Narvik Airport, Evenes and depart before 8:00 pm to our base near Ramberg in Lofoten
where we should arrive around midnight.
If anyone books flight to Leknes Airport I can collect you in Leknes around 11:00 pm, on our way to the house.

DAYS 2-7

During the workshop we will visit locations listed below and other lesser known spots between locations
for more unique views and angles. We will also do night sessions when there is chance for Aurora activity
and sky clear enough to see it.

During Autumn workshops on most days we will arrive to locations 45 mins before sunrise for the morning session
and finish after 3-4 hours, drive back to the house for few hours break and lunch.
After the break we will leave house and arrive around 2 hours before sunset at the location and finish 1 hour after the sunset.

During the Winter workshops we will often do one longer session per day with 1 hour break in the middle,
starting before sunrise and finishing after sunset as days are around 8 hours long so there is no need
to drive back to the house.

DAY 8

We will depart early (5:00 am) to arrive to Harstad-Narvik Airport around 9:00 am,
anyone flying back from Leknes Airport will be dropped off there around 6:00 am

CUSTOMER TESTIMONIALS

'It was an awesome trip to the Lofoten Islands with Land of Light Photography. Tom and Adrian were both really
helpful and were always on hand for any questions. I felt that I was able to improve on my skills and try new things
due to the variety of landscape. I would definitely recommend others to go with them to the Lofoten Islands; it was
a trip that had both; the classic locations that Lofoten offers as well as some very unique spots which made the experience
so much more memorable, especially when it came to the aurora on our last night there!'
- Ali Ayaz / UK

'I recently went on the workshop with Land of Light Photography to Norway. Tom provided excellent guidance and communication
prior to this trip, a well organized week of activities and beautiful locations and expert photographic expertise. It was a fun,
challenging week with a great group of people.'
- Cynthia Rees / USA

'My girlfriend and I recently attended the Norway workshop and had an great experience. The locations were stunning,
the workshop was planned well while remaining flexible to adjust to the conditions, and Tom does an excellent job tailoring
his instruction to each person's experience level. Thanks for another excellent workshop!'
