When & where
May 21st and 22nd, 2024
Leknes will be our base for the workshop. Travelling to Leknes can happen in a variety of ways:
• Ferry over from Bodø to Moskenes
• Fly to either Leknes or Svolvær (Widerøe and SAS both have options)
• Travel to Narvik via rail or road and drive four hours through the most insanely beautiful scenery imaginable
Format & Size
This workshop places a strong emphasis on photography and involves physical exertion, including hiking on safe, flat trails with uphill verticals. We aim to explore as many locations as possible within a condensed timeframe, so there’s no doubt – this workshop is centered around photography.
What sets this workshop apart is its timing. Taking place during the Midnight Sun, our sessions could extend into the night. This is, of course, dependent on the weather. By joining this workshop, be prepared for photography to occur at unconventional hours, as we strive to capture the best possible light.
Beyond photography, we’ll engage in group conversations midday between sessions. These discussions will cover business topics and reflect on your journey as an artistic entrepreneur. However, based on the experiences of previous participants, we understand that photography and exploration form the heart of this workshop.
Cole Roberts grew up in Canada and adopted a nomadic lifestyle early on, thanks to his involvement in hockey. His hockey pursuits took him across North America, eventually leading him to settle in Vancouver.
After a decade of working in restaurants and earning a master’s degree in marketing, photography became his career path. This journey led him to establish Nordica in 2009, launch Way Up North in 2015, attain the title of Fujifilm X-Photographer in 2016, and co-found Kolla in 2018.
Currently, Cole resides in Gävle, Sweden, with his wife and three children.
