Learn how to take wow photos that stand out from the crowd! With the camera in hand, we go on hikes in the wild and beautiful western landscape. The Interrail trip is planed together in the class.

Do you enjoy catching special moments with your camera? Together we will experience the best Norwegian nature has to offer and we will explore creativity through practical photo assignments - both in the studio and outdoors.

We focus on easy outdoor life where the aim of each trip is to capture unique images. You will learn to master your camera and what you should think about in order to get the most out of each situation.

This year's travel highlight will be a 2-3 week Interrail trip through Europe. We plan the trip as a team. Berlin, Prague, Budapest, the Alps, Milan, Barcelona, ​​Paris. The choice is yours. Regardless of where we go, we will be left with lots of great experiences and, not least, many nice photos. The camera comes along whereever we go!

At the end of the year, we organize a magnificent photo exhibition with all the best photos you have taken.

In addition, you can take part in kayak trips, sleeping in tents and under the open sky in hammocks, a boat trip with the veteran ship MS Sunnhordland, a ski and snowboard trip to Hovden and lots of other fun experiences!
