Nature, culture and photo guiding
Your main guide will be professional photographer Peter Rosén. His background is as a biologist and associate professor in environmental science but work now as a full time photographer. Peter and David offers you an in-depth photo course on how to capture the aurora, stars, galaxies, Sámi culture, wildlife and the spellbinding midwinter landscape in the best possible way. Peter will also bring you the full story behind your beautiful images! The history of the breath taking nature and exciting culture of Lapland is an essential part of every tour. Your Sami guide will tell you about the Sami culture that is an integral part of this region, the fascinating science behind the northern lights, the unique ecosystem you are in and how it has been shaped by natural forces over the millennia. The animals and vegetation are specialized to survive this climate, from the lichens clinging to rocks up to the majestic moose. Every photo you shoot captures some aspect of Lapland culture, science and history.
