This photo camp is for everyone who likes to enjoy the nature with a camera. We will focus on taking photos and exploring the beautiful wintery nature. We will focus on improving your photography skills and finding some inspiration from nature as we will spend most of the time outdoors. The environment of Oulanka National Park and areas nearby are offering the best possible places to experience and photograph the Finnish Winter.

First we’ll have a short sessions inside about nature photography & editing. After the introduction we will continue outdoors, and focus on shooting for the weekend. We have a transportation though the weekend so we’ll visit several destinations around the area.

During the weekend we will go through some tips for editing, and you can ask personal advice from your guide, professional photographer Eeva Mäkinen.  We will explore the best times of the day and night in the area nearby and on top of a fell. We will shoot sunset, stars, northern lights or campfire and sunrise where it’s the best. Proper winter gear is essential but you can also as some items for rent. Renting is strongly advised if you don’t have a proper winter shoes and jacket.

This trip includes full board, so do not worry about spending time on anything else than photographing.
