Your Photo Guide
My name is Adrian and I come from Poland. I was living and working in Norway almost 9 years. From the beginning I was exploring Norwegian beautiful landscapes, improving my photographic skills, my gear and my knowledge about the photography itself as well as Scandinavian nature and culture. I also learned a lot about shooting in a very dynamic light and weather conditions which are common in Norway and especially on Lofoten Islands.
During my workshops I will lead You through the most scenic, beautiful and breathtaking locations across western parts of Lofoten Archipelago.
Each day I will share my knowledge about landscape photography. Together we will explore many different places finding interesting compositions and using different photography techniques to capture the light in the best possible way.
During the evenings we will be hunting for Aurora Borealis - I will show You how to shoot at night and if we will be lucky - how to capture dancing green lights in the best possible way!
I will also find some time to sit down with You and work on Your shots, discussing the best compositions and some post-processing techniques which can improve Your works.
I was visitng Lofoten multiple times already and I have learned how to work around the extreme weather and fast changing light to get the most of it in various locations.
Hope to see You soon!

'I spent some great winter days with Adrian on Lofoten in January 2020.He brought us to awesome locations and knew them all in detail. So I saw some of the places I had been before with new eyes.And he gave us some great tips for Lightroom and Photoshop too.'

'After catching up at work and home, I finally finished culling through my images. As I was processing them, I could not help but realizing what an amazing trip that was. The unique landscape at Lofoten during the winter in great light had really captivated me. With a bit of PS magic, they really popped. With Adrian’s guidance, we had really maximized the short time there given the weather constraints that we faced. Thank you, Adrian!'

'It was an awesome trip to the Lofoten Islands with Land of Light Photography. Tom and Adrian were both really helpful and were always on hand for any questions. I felt that I was able to improve on my skills and try new things due to the variety of landscape.
I would definitely recommend others to go with them to the Lofoten Islands; it was a trip that had both; the classic locations that Lofoten offers as well as some very unique spots which made the experience so much more memorable, especially when it came to the aurora on our last night there!'

'I can thoroughly recommend a workshop with Adrian. He knows the area so well and where to go in the ever changing weather conditions. I went to places and at times when I was sure there would be no photo opportunities and yet came away with images different from many that can be seen on the internet.
Adrian can take you to locations away from the normal tourist hotspots and yet still provide the full flavour of what Lofoten has to offer.
He is an attentive leader and knowledgeable photographer and offers advice which ensures you get the best out of the experience.
If ever you get the chance to book one of his workshop places I would highly recommend that you go for it. You will not regret it and will certainly come back with more skills than those you went with in all aspects of photography.
Thank you Adrian for such a memorable trip, it was a pleasure to meet and learn from you.'
