SAARISELKÄ, FINNISH LAPLAND, JUNE 30-JULY 2, 2017
Next summer we will challenge you to experience the arctic summer and photography in a totally new level.
The three-day Workshop will lead you through three stages designed to make use of those extra hours and the endless daylight the Midnight Sun has to offer. The workshop takes place in the far North of Finnish Lapland, in Saariselkä and its surroundings where the endless wilderness bathes in the light of Midnight Sun for over two months during the summer.
Get inspired – get re-energized – get your cameras ready!
Stage 1 – Increase your knowledge
Take a seat and learn about photography and social media. Your guides at this adventure are top experts in their own areas and each of them has an interesting story to share. Christoffer Collin (@wisslaren) is a self-taught travel, landscape and lifestyle photographer from Sweden. Eeva Mäkinen (@eevamakinen) is a photographer and wilderness hostess from Finland. Jan-Eerik Paadar (@paadar_images) is a subarctic explorer and photographer based in Inari, Finnish Lapland.
Stage 2 – The practical phase
Three different locations – three different ways to discover the summer in the North of Finnish Lapland and the Nightless Night. Let’s step outside and get inspired about the surrounding wilderness. Dive into the secrets of landscape photography, storytelling and photography in extreme conditions with like-minded group of people.
Stage 3 – Your turn to shine
This is the event finale, this is the Nightless Night Photo Marathon. At this finale stage, you will be challenged in everything you have learned during the first two phases. You have a mission, 12 hours of time and certain number of photos to return with when the time is up. Do you prefer gathering a team or going on a mission by yourself? You make the call. We can guarantee that your efforts will be well rewarded!
