Fotokurs i Katterjokk

fotokurs-katterjokk

Helgen 20-22 September hölls en foto helgkurs på Katterjokk´s turiststation. Desto närmare kursdatum blir väderprognosen värre och värre med 60 mm regn under lördagens kursdag… man kanske inte ens kan gå ut. Dock har jag vackert väder inom mig. Inget kan stoppa oss att få en fin kurshelg. Kursen är fullbokad sedan länge och då är det bara på med Skalplaggen, ett stort leende och ge sig ut. Temat är action och äventyr och det blir lätt i strilande regn med lera och vattenpölar. Det regnar hela tiden men ok att vara ute med kameran utan att riskera för mycket.

En fantastisk helg med mulet och mycket regn. Supernöjd med deltagarnas resultat och inte en sur min under hela helgen. Ett stort tack till er!

Det kommer säkert en ny kurs till våren 2014. Galleri från kursen kommer också läggas upp inom kort.

Arctic Photoworkshop Day 2

arctic photoworkshopDay 2 with great conditions. We started at the old liftstation and worked with foregrounds, light and composition. Tua and Viggo, our skimodels put a lot of effort into their side and got some great shots. We headed up the mountain and found some good spots. But after a few good ones we decided to go for lunch due to very cold conditions and cold feet.

Arctic Heliski

arctic heliskiEpic conditions in Riksgränsen and we are going Heliskiing at sunset. Its great to meet up with Anders Bergwall and Arctic guides for his expertise this evening. Skiing i better and mountains more promising than we ever could expect. Some turns in sunset was the end of an outstanding day.

A short theory session and then we head up the mountain were its still sunshine, fresh powder and NO wind at all. Tua and Viggo, our great skimodels are eager to get started and we find a great spot straight away. Viggo charging and get buried in snow!

Missed the train to Riksgränsen

missedthetrainTrain is leaving at 22.12…  Missed a phone call… next one i was busy… then i get a text from Glenn at 20.47, if i got some earplugs for the nighttrain?. 22.31 I reply that i will ask my wife… Glenn a few seconds later, are you not on the train?. I reply in a very relaxed way, that it is tomorrow we are leaving. At 22.35 i realize i missed the train and i was not even close to catch it. I would have been 24 hours late. Then a long night followed trying to get a connection to Riksgränsen and Haglöfs Arctic weekend were i will be giving two photoworkshops and packing all the gear.

In stores now!

Arlbergmania!

arlbergI did many winter seasons in St:anton, Austria and remember the great playground this area offered to offpiste skiing and touring. After 12 years i wanted to go back to see if it really was that good. I persuaded journalist Anders Wingqvist to come with me and show him the great Arlberg resorts. We met up with skier Fredrik Andersson and Hanna Lättström on a 4 days smorgasboard. When going back i was still impressed about the skiing that you could do in Arlberg. Impressive.
