Our program also leaves plenty of time to relax and enjoy all that Gili Lankanfushi has to offer…and it may just be the only photography workshop in the world with butler service!

Reindeer Sledding in the Arctic Circle!

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be pulled on a sled by a reindeer in the arctic circle?

It is a very peaceful and beautiful way to travel. Shot with a Go-pro. Check it out!

Swedish Lapland & Aurora Borealis Photography Tours

Swedish Lapland & Aurora Borealis Photography Tour announced for 2016!

Join David in early 2016 for this unforgettable photography tour in the arctic circle. Places are limited! Book here.

The Northern part of Scandinavia is an extraordinary place of beauty, intrigue and extremes. Inside the arctic circle, Lapland is an expansive region of snow, reindeer, the Sámi people and the infamous Aurora Borealis, or Northern Lights.

Traditionally, the Swedish believed the Aurora to be the souls of their ancestors, and something to be somewhat feared. The Finnish believed it to be the tail of the fox, swooshing across the sky. These days we know it to be the interaction of the sun’s radiation with the earth’s atmosphere and magnetosphere. Although we now have this scientific explanation, there is no denying the incredible, uplifting experience of seeing the Aurora….and photographing it! Here is a breathtaking time-lapse video created by David on his recent journey in December 2014.
