About this trip

PHOTOGRAPHY CRASH COURSE in NORWAY


LEARN HOW TO WORK YOUR CAMERA LIKE A PRO, in the most photogenic country in Europe: Norway! 


On this trip we'll take the professional photographer Jurjen Rozeboom who will teach you all about your camera. Shutter-time, diafragma, white balance, ISO, how to make the perfect shot and what not. You'll get assignments to work on different techniques, at night we'll have a look at all photos. Jurjen will give you hands on feedback that you can put into practice right away! 


Jurjen Rozeboom is a professional photographer specialized in travel & outdoor photography, dedicated to capturing moments based around landscapes, lifestyle, and outdoor adventure. As Jurjen will say; He really like to capture active lifestyle, outdoor and the beauty of mother earth. Besides photography he's a fanatic skater, kitesurfer and trail runner and loves to go outdoors to create the most beautiful shots. Back in 2016 he won the Dutch award for the best weather photo of that year and has a lot of experience in portrait-, landscape-, and sports photography.

Small group

We'll be a small group (max 6 guests) - so you'll get a lot of personal attention and tips on your photos. Every day we drive to a different location, with different scenery to learn in. From fjords to mountains, to small villages. 


And while you're learning, you'll also be on a unique roadtrip through the Stunning Fjords & Mysterious Mountains of Norway!


Join us on this epic roadtrip through the area of Bergen. Imagine yourself looking out the window in our unique old timer double decker bus. Some nice tunes coming from the speakers, making new friends and cruising along the coast, while the sun warms your face!

We’ll go to fjords, get amazed by the photogenic views on the hike around Hardangervidda, we’ll visit canyons and see Norway’s highest waterfall from up close. Where would you rather learn how to master your camera? Here there's always something pretty to photograph.


And of course..we’ll take the time to relax and enjoy as well! 


Let's make some memories!


Please note: it could be that we do this trip the opposite direction.
