Aurora Northern Lights Photography Workshop & Tour
Epic Aurora watching!!
, Jan 2020
My husband and I had just recently went to Fairbanks Alaska. We booked Aurora Northern Lights Photography Workshop & Tour. We have to say it was amazing! Bill (our tour guide and teacher) was amazing! He was so knowledgeable in the Aurora Lights and how tot take pictures. Bill taught us how to put in the right settings on our camera to take great pictures. Coming to Alaska the Aurora lights was on the top of our list to see and Bill made it happened. He was patient and went out of his way to accommodate us. We enjoyed the time we spent with Bill. The highlight of this trip is the Aurora Nightcap that Bill served us. It was soo tasty and just what we needed during the cold night of Aurora watching. I recommend this tour to anyone who wants to see the Aurora lights. Thank you Bill for an amazing time!!! We are looking forward to coming back for more aurora watching in the future!!
After hours of waiting in a comfortable and cozy warm vehicle, the clouds passed and the northern lights came out to play. Mr. Bill supplied rental camera equipment to those of us who needed it, and made sure all cameras were using best settings. Lots of useful info for northern lights photography with emphasis on best practices for quality shots rather than shots that need edits in Photoshop. Looking forward to another night if the weather cooperates.

This tour, which takes you to a carefully selected location outside of Fairbanks, does just that. Rent a camera, tripod, lenses, and spend at least three hours taking photos of the lights phenomenon.
