Target Group

The Photo retreat is aimed at beginners of photography. Advanced
photographers wanting to capture the magic of Swedish Lapland in
midwinter could also benefit from the retreat.
Due to the small group size, we have the opportunity to specifically
address the individual needs of the participants.
We give you a overview of the most important topics of landscape and
especially aurora photography. The mix of theory and practice will quickly
bring you from the ’know-how’ to the creative captures.
For non-photographing partners, this trip also offers a great nature and
travel experience.
