I took the tour to the musher's cabin with the photo instruction option. Ronn and Marketa made everyone comfortable and instructed those of us with DSLR camers how to set them for the best photos. Very pleased with the whole experience!

“Awesome Awesome!”
Reviewed 4 March 2014

I joined the aurora + chena hot spring tour with Ronn on early March. While the hot springs soaking was a very nice experience, the aurora viewing + photo part was just memorable. We joined other tours on the first 2 nights (we stayed 3 nights overall), and they were more like do-it-on-your-own type. Ronn gave a very good estimate about the start of the aurora viewing (how he could have done that is still a mystery to me) so that we didn't have to stand outdoor at -10deg. We could spend more time on soaking or just chilling at somewhere indoor. At the time of the viewing, he helped everyone in the tour to adjust their cameras so that we all had the best chance to take some unforgettable pictures. And he would also use his camera to take pics for us too, and they are all awesome.

“Most amazing experience ever!”
Reviewed 4 March 2014

We had always wanted to see the northern lights, and after months of research, we decided Fairbanks was THE PLACE to go.
As part of our research, we found Ronn Murray Photography and Tours, and booked with them the only two nights we were going to spent in town.
Ronn and Marketa are the BEST tour available! They are great!!! So professional in all they do. Their explanation about the auroras, how they predict the aurora, their service, the pictures they take, are AWESOME!!
I really recommend them! They will make your trip be perfect!
As per number of nights, we spent 2 nights but would have liked to stay longer. We would recommend at least 3 nights.
We came back home having achieved our dream... Thanks Ronn and Marketa, you are the best!!

“Great Experience”
Reviewed 26 February 2014 via mobile

You don't have to be a skilled photographer to have a great experience with Ronn & Marketa. I really appreciated all the information they provided on the science behind Auroras, the great location they took us to, and of course the amazing portraits that Ronn takes of you with the Aurora! If you are a skilled photographer, they provide you with loads of instruction on how to take Aurora photos.

“Northern Lights and Arctic Circle”
Reviewed 23 February 2014

We did two photography workshops (Northern Lights and Arctic Circle) with Ronn and Marketa, both of whom are outstanding photographers, and could not have been more pleased. Prior to the trip, Ronn had excellent suggestions regarding both equipment and clothing (it ended up being -25 F). The trip was well organized and very educational, both in terms of night photography techniques as well as the underlying science. If you want to chase the aurora and/or visit the Arctic Circle, this is the way to do it. The only thing that I wished I had done was to ask him about dog sled tours. From what I later learned, I would have been much happier with his friends at Sirius. In addition to the pictures that we shot (under their expert guidance), Ronn and Marketa also sent pictures that they shot of us as well.
