I’m honored to announce that I’ll be joining the January 2015 Muench Photography Workshops tour as their guide to the Lofoten section of the tour.

The complete tour is 10 days, from January 15-25, 2015 and will be led by world renowned landscape photographers and workshop leaders Marc Muench and Andy Williams.  I will be guiding the group on the Lofoten part, January 15-20, after which the group will travel north to Vesterålen for several days spent whale and sea eagle watching.  It will be exciting tour to say the least, and is one of the earliest tours offered in the year, which is looking like it will be a crowded winter on Lofoten, which is perhaps becoming the ‘new Iceland’ for landscape photographers.

Our base for the Lofoten part of the trip will be Elaissen Rorbuer on Hamnøy, with fantastic photo opportunities just out the front door (and even from inside the cabins themselves!).

As of June 1, 2014, the workshop is fully booked – sorry for not announcing earlier, if anyone was interested.  Still, I suggest getting in contact incase free space becomes available.  Or perhaps a 2016 workshop will be scheduled if enough people express interest.


I myself will likely spend the remainder of January and most of February on the islands.  My skis got no use this year, so I’m hoping for better snow conditions in 2015!  And I really want to be somewhere high and alone in the mountains and watch the northern lights dance overhead.  I’m also thinking of maybe giving another go at the Kungsleden trail, if I can somehow afford it again.
