Saimaa Seal Photography Course

The subject of the course is Saimaa Ringed Seal in it's own habitat. Our course leader on Saturday is an award-winning nature photographer Pasi Lensu. He is also known for the Järven Tarina -movie released in 2016.
You can sign up for one day or for two days. On the secaond day we make an early bird boattour with an experienced nature guide. Accommodation is not included in the course fee.

On this course we'll focus on taking pictures of the seals. Both days include taking pictures on water (from boat) and on land. . You can use any kind of camera from a SLR camera to a smartphone. Since we don't want to disturb the seals we'll take photos from a distance. For seal photos you need a zoom to at least 20m. Please see the full initiary!
