2016 Autumn Northern Lights Timelapse Workshop in Iceland

September 19th– 25th, 2016

Join Evosia Studio’s Henry Jun Wah Lee and Icelandic photographer/filmmaker Thorvardur Arnason for a breathtaking timelapse and photography adventure in Iceland in September. Autumn is one of the best times to shoot the Aurora Borealis and to capture many of Iceland’s epic landscapes. Through our small group workshop, we will show you why Iceland is a photographer’s paradise.

This epic 7-day timelapse and photography workshop will be held September 19th to 25th, 2016, and is limited to only 5 participants. We will start and end in the city of Reykjavik.

Workshop Highlights:


You will be in good hands as you learn from an incredible team: one of the premier timelapse shooters in the world assisted by an expert Icelandic photographer with intimate knowledge of Iceland’s hidden locations, fickle weather patterns, and various kinds of Northern Lights.

The workshop is open to all skill levels and covers everything from the basics, to shooting motion-controlled time lapses, to processing and editing your photos into professional quality stills or video.

Please note that while the highest priority for the workshop will be shooting Northern Lights, it is ultimately up to mother nature and what the prevailing weather and solar conditions allow for.
