New 2020 Winter Photography Workshop Dates

Lofoten And Senja Photo Tour 2020

My first winter photo workshops are now online over on my PHOTO TOURS PAGE.

All my winter 2019 tours are now full. There will be several more winter 2020 dates announced soon as well. As with 2019, all 2020 dates will be with me co-guiding with other tour operators. I simply don’t have the time to run my own tours anymore – which is a good thing!

There will be some additional summer and autumn 2019 dates announced soon as well. But the schedule will be lighter than previous years, as there just doesn’t seem to be too much interest in summer here for some reason, so I will mostly keep summer free for me to be out in the mountains…

New 2020 winter dates:

January 21 – 30 – Lofoten and Senja with Muench Workshops

February 3 – 10 – Lofoten with Arctic Exposure Workshops

February 10 – 17 – Lofoten with Arctic Exposure Workshops

Stay tuned for more dates to be announced soon…

2018 Lofoten Photo Tour Schedule

2018 Midnight Mountains - Lofoten Photography Tour

It has been a busy finish to the autumn, with the best September weather that I can remember, and a pretty good October as well: Seeming endless days of sun and nights of northern lights – the past five nights in a row as I write this on Wednesday. But now the weather has finally turned a bit and snow is falling on the mountains above my house. So I have finally gotten around to publishing my photo tour schedule for 2018.

Group tours for 2018

Exploring Winter: March 10 – 16

Midnight Mountains: June 30 – July 6

Summer Twilight: August 4 – 10

Exploring Autumn: September 29 – October 5


I’m keeping a light schedule for my group tours this year as I have already been booked on a number of individual private tours and guiding for other companies. If you are interested in a private tour, then contact me soon, as my schedule is about as full as I want it to be, so I wont be taking on many more trips for 2018.

New 2017 Summer And Autumn Lofoten Photo Workshops

2017 Lofoten Islands Photo Tour - Midnight Mountains

Along with the already Scheduled workshops, I have just published 3 new Lofoten photo tours for summer and autumn 2017.

Midnight Mountains – June 24 – 30, 2017

Summer Twilight – August 12 – 18, 2017

Exploring Autumn – September 23 – 29, 2017

Overall, I will be keeping a slightly lighter tour schedule in 2017 than I did in 2016.  I had more private tour bookings than I was expecting, which at times left me away from home for weeks on end. I am also simultaneously working on several new ebooks for both Lofoten and other areas in Norway and Sweden, all of which all take a lot of field, photography, and research time. I have already fallen a bit behind my deadlines for 2016 and had to cancel a few photo/hiking trips all together – which in the short seasons of the Scandinavian arctic, basically delays things by a year. Being busy is a good problem to have, but the key is finding balance…

New Lofoten Photo Workshops


Lofoten Senja Road Trip October 2017

I’m happy to announce I have two new Lofoten Photography workshops available.

The first workshop is a cool road trip from Lofoten to Tromsø via Senja. This is from October 5 – 10, 2016. Not a standard photo tour, we’ll use camper vans from Acrtic Campers as our portable homes for the trip, giving us ultimate flexibility to chase the best autumn light.

The second workshop is an winter photo tour on Lofoten. March 10 – 16, 2017. Based around the last full moon of the winter season, this will give us some nice conditions for photographing the northern lights should they appear.

For information about both workshops, visit my tours page:

Lofoten Islands Photo Tour – Last Days Of Summer – August 2016

Lofoten Photo Workshop - Last Days of Summer 2016

Lofoten Islands Photo Workshop – Last Days Of Summer – August 20 – 26, 2016

The end of August brings the last days of summer to Lofoten. This is a period of transition, where a hint of autumn color can be seen across the land while the growing nights still have a faint glow in the northern horizon. The weather can become turbulent and yet summer still is still here, keeping the islands open for exploration. And if we are lucky, the first hints of northern lights might make an appearance in the midnight sky.

Come join me on this exploration of Lofoten. We will chase the light and storms along the coast and take advantage of any fair weather to head up to some nearby peaks, for world class views across hidden beaches and distant mountains. We may even decide to ‘stay up’ for sunrise, while enjoying a campfire and bbq at a scenic seaside location.

Lofoten Photo Tour – Distant Beaches – July 2016

Lofoten Photo Workshops Summer 2016

Lofoten Islands Photo Workshop – Distant Beaches – July 23 – 29, 2016

With the sun setting just below the horizon each night, the end of July brings the twilight nights to Lofoten. No longer the midnight sun, and not yet dark, the ‘night’ is one long transition from sunset to sunrise. We will use these long days and glowing nights to explore and camp in some of Lofoten’s best destinations.

This Photography workshop is more than just a tour of Lofoten, it will be a total outdoor experience of the Islands. The heart of this trip will consist of a 4 day – 3 night hiking and camping tour across the wild northern coast of Moskenesøy, where we will take turns watching the sun sink into the sea from sandy beaches and mountain summits.

Lofoten Photo Tour – Midnight Mountains – July 2016

Lofoten Photo Workshop - July 2016

Lofoten Islands Photo Workshop – Midnight Mountains – July 2 – 8, 2016

We will become nocturnal on this workshop and time will cease to be of much importance. Our goal is to hike to scenic mountain views and photograph the hours-long sunset to sunrise which occurs around midnight. And when our legs are tired, we might pick up a grill and spend an evening around a bbq and campfire with our cameras shooting time-lapses down by the sea.

This is a photography workshop about experiencing the best of Lofoten’s outdoors.

Muench Workshops – Lofoten and Vesterålen Photo Tour – January 2017

Muench Workshops - Lofoten and Vesterålen 2017

Muench Workshops – Lofoten Landscapes and Vesterålen Whale Safari – January 20 – 29, 2017

After the success guiding their 2015 Lofoten Photo workshop, I will once again be guiding for Muench workshops alongside Andy Williams for their 2017 Lofoten and Vesterålen photography workshop.

The tour begins on Lofoten, where we will focus on capturing the winter landscapes and, if we’re lucky, nights full of northern lights. We will first be based on Sakrisøy, near Reine, to focus on the western parts of the Islands, with the iconic peak Olstind just out the front door. Next we will travel to Leknes, so we can be near the fantastic beaches of Vestvågøy.

After Lofoten, we will drive several hours north to Andenes on Vesterålen. Here, we will take to the sea on private rib boats for two days of whale watching in the dramatic winter light.
