Lights Over Lapland - Arctic Nights is my second major film that focuses on the aurora borealis in Abisko National Park, Sweden. The video was captured in its entirety during Lights Over Lapland's aurora borealis photo tours in Abisko between 2012 and 2013. All of the sequences in the film were created using DSLR cameras and a time-lapse technique that required countless hours and thousands of images to create. Several of the sequences in the film have been reproduced in a way that allows the viewer to see the lights dancing in virtual real time just as I saw them while capturing the footage. I am overwhelmingly proud to be able to say that none of the images have been altered in any way.
I am extremely thankful to be able to call Abisko my home. The opportunity to live and work in such an incredible environment capturing this phenomenon has been one of the most amazing experiences of my life.
I would like to thank our video editor Tom Malkowicz (Thomas Malkowicz) for his contribution and creative assistance. Without his help this film would not have been possible. I would also like to thank my wife Linnea. Her patience, and willingness to allow me to follow my dreams have been the driving force behind this film. Finally I would like to thank each and every one of the guests that have joined our aurora photo tours in the Park. Due to their kindness I have been able to spend the last several years of my life chasing the northern lights and sharing my images with the world. Their support has enabled all of my wildest dreams to come true.
All of the images in the film were captured in Abisko National Park, Sweden. Due to its location in a rain shadow, Abisko is one of the best places on Earth to see and photograph the northern lights.
