Day 1:
Just before noon you will be arriving at the campsite, located in Ramsvik. After your arrival you will be welcomed and we will have a delicious lunch together. After lunch there will be a tutorial about the different categories in nature photography, together with an inspirational session. After this session you will have time to check in and we will have a nice fika (Swedish coffee break). Then we’ll put the theory into practice by an evening session landscape photography. We’ll admire the beautiful archipelago from a high and breathtaking viewpoint. Satisfied, we will return to the campsite after this session to enjoy a 2-course dinner.

Day 2:
We start the day with a nice breakfast and then leave for Nordens Ark. Nordens Ark is a large park dedicated to the protection of endangered species and biodiversity. Because the park is so large and offers so many photo opportunities, we will eat our lunch on site. We’ll return in the late afternoon to enjoy a well-deserved break. During the evening we will take spectacular macro photos in amazing light conditions. After this intensive session we can once again put our legs under the table for a tasteful dinner. If the weather conditions allow it, a night photography session is scheduled later on in the evening.

Day 3:
After enjoying a late breakfast, an image review session is on the program. Constructive feedback will be given on your images during another great fika. After this session you can collect your luggage and your memory cards which will hopefully contain a lot of images. After check-out we eat lunch together to end this unique adventure.
