Hurtigruten Escorted Photography Tour
Our newest tour & voyage on offer is an exclusively escorted photography tour of Northern Norway.
Lonely Planet Photogapher, David Evans joined 50 Degrees North for this exclusively escorted photography voyage & tour of Norway’s Lofoten Archipelago & North Cape under the midnight sun. One of our Scandinavian staff will host this journey, taking care of all services throughout the tour program and providing insight into the local culture and history. In addition, David will be providing photography tuition and support.
This was an unique and very special itinerary, photographing and experiencing the rich culture and landscape of the far north of Norway. This 12-day tour departed in 26 May 2018 and was limited to 10 participants.
David is an experienced and awarded Lonely Planet photographer who will guide you through many aspects of travel and landscape photography, covering topics such as;
- Sunrise and sunset
- Long exposures
- Wildlife and macro photography
- Food photography
- Post-production of images
- Image review and professional critique
Our activities and excursions were tailored towards seeing and capturing the best light and most photogenic locations. Tuition was mostly hands on, with much of the time spent outdoors with our cameras.
The tour was suitable for photographers of all abilities, and also suitable for non-photographers.
