Hi, I'm going to Saariselka 18th Dec 2013. We're doing the Santa thing for the children during the day but it's my 40th also and I've always dreamed of photographing the Aurora.
I'm intending being out each evening with my camera, but, not knowing the area (and I could probably do with some photography tips) would anyone know of any local guides/photographers I could book to take me out to some of the best places to take photos of the Aurora. I know some of the local firms do 'aurora hunts' but I believe these are all early evening and not during better times for Aurora watching. As I said I could probably do with some help with actually taking the photographs also.
Any recommendations or advice would be really appreciated, failing that if anyone fancies meeting up to go out with cameras between 18th and 21st Dec let me know.
Thanks a lot.
