Learn how to shoot your dream pictures of the Aurora Borealis.
Your Northern Lights Photo Workshop begins right at your Fairbanks accommodation, so you don’t need to plan how to get to us and you will save additional taxi costs. Free guest pickup from 8:00pm to 8:30pm.
This workshop was developed for our guests to learn how to make the best possible aurora pictures during their vacation. It was not arranged for the advanced photographer.
Join us for an aurora photo course at one of our prime viewing lodges.
To photograph the Northern Lights is a task that baffles many an experienced photographer.
The Aurora Borealis tends to come quickly and there is no time to fumble with cameras.
We will teach you to handle your own equipment, using the right settings and adjustments.
Advanced photographic equipment is a clear advantage and cameras should have a few features such as manual operation options, adjustable ISO settings and long exposure capabilities and be tripod mountable.
Our groups are small (2-9 people) so we can concentrate on our guests one on one to ensure you come back home with the best Northern Lights pictures possible.
