Northern Lights in Norway!
A NEW Photography Workshop with Joe McNally and Tamara Lackey
February 20, 2023 - March 1, 2023
Tamara Lackey and Joe McNally recently taught together in the bustling city of Quito, Ecuador and the extremely remote Amazon Rainforest and they join forces again to teach photography in the North - the Lofoten Islands of Norway. The Northern Lights are on the "bucket list" of many, and now we are excited to announce an opportunity of a lifetime. Experience the glorious phenomena of the Northern Lights and learn from two of the top photography instructors in the industry.
Highlights of the Norway workshop include two full days in the vibrant city of Oslo, Norway where we will kick-off the workshop and not only hit the streets shooting a wide variety of architecture, cityscapes and waterfront scenics but we'll also have a mini-camera clinic to dive into camera and flash settings before our adventures commence. As a group we will fly to Svolvaer, Norway and begin our exciting adventure which will include photographing magnificent Sea Eagles in flight, chasing Northern Lights and a photo shoot at the Lofotr Viking Museum. Learning from these two acclaimed photographers in this wonderful natural setting will not only improve your photography skills but enrich your spirits.
The 10-day and 9-night adventure is an immersion into photography, storytelling and exploration and will focus on landscape, portrait and travel photography. An integral part of the workshop includes lectures and hands-on instruction, including lighting demonstrations combining flash and natural light. The Lofoten Islands are a perfect bucolic setting for breathtaking landscape photography and opportunities to work on environmental portraiture. We will photograph from land and sea! One of the trip highlights is to capture the famed lights of the North with the beautiful array of colors and shapes that are other-worldly. Chasing the Northern Lights will provide an excellent opportunity to work on night landscapes, tripod techniques and time-lapse exposures. Don't miss this amazing, unique new opportunity to learn from two of the world's best photography instructors in a truly magnificent setting.
