Sweden - Norrbotten
In the far north of Sweden the indigenous Sami people have traded their reindeer-sleigh for snow mobiles. Mostly. They still have a close connection to the wilderness, the snow and a few thousand reindeer in the forest. Every spring when the skies turn blue the Sami people get together to share some fun and friendship. The snow is deep and the lakes are frozen, perfect conditions for ice-fishing.

Photography for Travellers
Ewen's guiding principles are simple...
"Go slow. Get closer. Look for the light."
"Photography is about showing other people how to see, to share the beauty of life. It's not a job, it's a lifestyle. We only get one lifetime, one chance to add some light into the world. Photography competitions are mostly silly. Cats are excellent."
