Lysefjord 1-week Outdoor Photography Workshop

Price: 23,990 NOK per person

You can travel to the most beautiful places in the world, but that’s still no guarantee for good pictures. How can you convey the vastness of a landscape or show the feeling of a special moment? And how do you ensure that your photos won’t become snapshots but look just as impressive as the journey you make?
That’s what outdoor / travel photographer Frank Peters wilI explain in our new week long photography workshop in the Lysefjord. An adventurous workshop where we really get to experience the fjord.

Combine outdoor experiences & photography workshops!
During the week long photography workshop we will visit not only the highlights of the Lysefjord, including the most famous viewpoints of Norway; Preikestolen and Kjerag, but the workshop also gives you a unique outdoor experience. Together with local nature guides from Outdoorlife Norway and photographer Frank Peters, we go out on day tours kayaking and hiking, and undertake one overnight camping to Kjerag. Our time outdoors is interspersed with accommodation at mountain lodges, incl. photo editing sessions to learn from each other and get the most out of your pictures.

We photograph sunrises and sunsets, we take pictures of the stars and learn about the local culture through local stories. We are going to experience the real Lysefjord and the better you get to know an area, the better your pictures become!

Dates 2017:
September 16 – 23

Suitable for beginning and advanced photographers.
Hiking difficulty: Suitable for adults (at least 16 yrs.) in very good condition, with previous experience with hiking.

A mountain that has been photographed thousands of times, but since he pictured it in a totally different way (at night with a slow shutter speed), the picture stood out. It´s the same principle we´ll also comply during the workshop.
