Creative Mountain Photography in Abisko National Park

The evening light of summer gives the Lapland landscape a surreal glow. Lush subarctic hillsides, rivers shimmer, skies deepen, purple and fiery mountaintops dotted with stubborn snow. The scenery shifts with each blink. The light – the landscape – the beautiful shift of seasons – this is Lapland – learn how to capture it!

LaplandMedia & PhotoAdventures invites you on a one week photo course on how to capture this beautiful region in the best possible way. Join professional photographer Peter Rosén for an eye-opening experience and bring home fantastic memories from Lapland.

Here you will learn creative mountain landscape photography from the very beginning. You will be shown all the skills and be guided from the beginning in capturing the perfect images in an inspiring summertime environment. The course leader, Peter Rosén, has had a long career as an environmental researcher in Abisko, where he has lived for 16 years. His comprehensive knowledge of the area guarantees the best guiding to exquisite photography sites.

This course is included in Canon’s Photography School and is also sponsored by Manfrotto, giving you the exclusive chance to test the latest digital camera equipment, lenses and tripods on the market. Also included in the course is a trip to the Polar Park – Arctic Wildlife Centre in Norway for photographing wolverine, lynx, wolfs, bears and more in a subarctic environment. We are also allowed to go inside the fences to the lynx for cloose up images. Per Karlsson from Canon will be one of the teachers on the course. We do have access to an Inspire 1 drone and advanced time lapse equipment from Ditogear. Time lapse movies are getting more and more popular these days. Therefore I will teach you the latest techniques for time lapse photographing using the new software LRTimelapse and how to use a motorized rail for nice motion in your scene.
