Lofoten Islands Norway Photo Workshop with Colby Brown

NORWAY WINTER WONDERLAND 2018

Come join me as we explore one of the most amazing winter photography locations on the planet, Norway’s own Lofoten Islands. Located above the arctic circle, these islands are home to some of the most spectacular seascapes in Europe. Additionally, because of its latitude, you have a greater chance to see the Northern Lights here than most places on the planet. During our 7 day adventure, we will split our focus between the famous town of Reine and the mountainous beaches of Leknes. This will put your right at the heart of some of the most incredible photographic location in the world!

Hiking in the Lofoten Islands of Norway in Winter
Photographer's exploring the Lofoten Islands of Norway

Our photo adventure in the Lofoten Islands will base just outside the town of Leknes for the duration of our workshop. There are multiple daily flights from Oslo to the Leknes Airport (LKN), giving you plenty of options to choose from when it comes to getting to this incredible part of the world. We will be staying in a series of fully renovated Rorbuer cabins that come equipped with not only private bathrooms in each room (with heated floors), but a living room area and full kitchen. It is here that we will make our own meals each night, allowing all participants to not only choose what they wish to eat, but save a little money in the process (eating out in Norway is VERY expensive).

When we are not out chasing the northern lights at night, we will be exploring a series of incredible fjords, beaches, inlets, lakes and mountain scenes through the region that stems from Leknes to the town of Reine and beyond. In addition, we will spend time photographing a number of the gorgeous red and yellow cabins that line the fjords in this part of the world. The Lofoten Islands are a photographers paradise and I can’t wait to show you why it is one of my favorite places to photograph in the winter.

Very Professional Photo Adventure Tour

Colby and Peyton did a great job. Everything was well organized and we had an awesome time, most importantly I learned a lot of new techniques and got new insights of how to become a better outdoor and landscape photographer. Congrats Colby!

A great experience

I really enjoyed Colby’s workshop. I learnt a lot about photography and also a lot about the business side of photography (which I found really useful). Be it website advice, social media advice, equipment advice Colby was always happy to help. There were all different skill levels on our tour and Colby adapted seamlessly to each participant. While we were there, Iceland had been hit by a lot of snow meaning the Ice Caves were impossible to reach unless you had a 30ft monster truck. Some people might have just apologised and said it’s the weather they’re unreachable. Colby found …

Magical Myanmar!

There are not enough good words to describe the experience of the workshop in Myanmar. Breathtaking scenery, excellent tutoring and a great group of people to travel with pretty much sums it up! It was such a positive learning environment thanks to Colby, Erin, and the other participants. My confidence in my camera skills progressed daily, as the constant change of locations and subjects constantly pushed my skills outside of my comfort zone. I can’t wait to book another workshop! 🙂
