Learn How to Take the Best Possible Aurora Pictures!

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 save additional taxi costs. Free guest pick-up is from 8:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

Join us for an aurora photo course at one of our prime viewing lodges. Photographing 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 teach you to handle your own equipment, using the right settings and adjustments.

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.
