Disclaimer and Weather
My goal is to send you home with incredible images from the stunning Lofoten Islands featuring all the incredible lighting conditions it can offer. However, weather particularly during the winter months can be stormy and unpredictable and may feature rain and snow. Although these storms can present a challenge, it is important to remember that they also bring great opportunities to test new concepts and techniques and to think creatively. Furthermore, the moody weather creates dynamic lighting situations with dramatic cloud cover which is part of the artistic appeal of the Lofotens.
The Lofoten climate during the winter tends to average 0 C (32 F), but can feel much colder in the wind and near the water. There will be opportunities to warm up in the heated van, but shooting sessions can last several hours. Be sure to come prepared by checking the “What to Bring” section below.
The schedule provided above retains flexibility to accommodate the fickle weather, and I will use my expert local knowledge to shift plans to more ideal locations if necessary. Your safety is my priority, so I will not take you outside during dangerous storm conditions. If conditions are unsuitable for shooting, we will use that time productively to conduct the master classes and for editing and image feedback sessions. Worry not, no time will go to waste!
Although the Lofoten Islands are perfectly located for ideal Northern Lights viewing, the Aurora may be blocked by cloud cover and viewing them cannot be guaranteed. To ensure the best chances, I will check the aurora and weather forecast several times each day. Although I am not responsible for the weather during this workshop, I will make every effort to ensure you capture some incredible images of this very special place and leave safe and with fond memories.
