LAPLAND TRAVEL & LANDSCAPE PHOTOGRAPHY COLLECTION
BY MATTHEW WILLIAMS-ELLIS, UK BASED COMMERCIAL TRAVEL PHOTOGRAPHER LIVING IN LONDON
Below are a few of my favourite photos taken over the past couple of years during visits to Finnish Lapland. The commission from Magic of Lapland has been two-fold. Firstly to create a new library of images for use on their website and in advertising, and secondly to set up travel and landscape photography holidays!
This brief was fairly broad, which I love. I was asked to capture landscape photographs of the local scenery that could be headline images in large advertising campaigns, but also to produce new accommodation photos and to focus on the details of activities that clients would take part in on a day to day basis. I captured images of everything I came across, from the northern lights and stunning snow-covered landscape to snowmobiling, husky-sledding and even got to photograph the real santa!
We have now also set up an action-packed, adventure-filled Lapland photography holiday. Using husky sleds, snowmobiles and snow-shoes, we will explore Pallas-Yllästunturi National Park and the area surrounding Akaslompolo. I can’t even begin to describe how beautiful the area is, especially at the start of December. As times, the sky is filled with cool pink and bright red sunset colours for hours at a time! We will of course also head out to hunt for the northern lights. So watch this space, and if you would like to be the first to find out, then do get in touch.
If the photos below leave you wanting more, my full collection of photos of Lapland can be found in my Lapland travel photography archive.
