One day with the sami people.

I always hope that i can bring photographers to do a session when the Sami peole gathering the Reindeer. It’s not easy and i have done it only once before. Why is this difficult?



The Sami people do not know about the winter/weather  condition and that meens they are not sure when the Reindeer is in the fence. They have the reindeer in there only for one day.



But i know the leader of the Sami people and i am calling him every winter. Lots of photographers ask me “ is it possible to see the Reindeer when the Sami people have the animals in a fence” I must always say - we would need a lot of luck.





So 3 weeks ago i send the leader of the group an SMS, how are you doing with the Reindeer? Could you call me? Fourteen days later, a Sunday evening i got an SMS from him. “ You can come tomorrow!!” So i went down to the group of photographers i had from Reisen-in-die-nature,  Joachim Griesingers group, and asked them. “ Should we let the eagle sleep tomorrow and would you like to have a day with the Sami people?” I also said that this is just like to win in a lottery!!



I could just see how the smile got wider and wider So next day we went earlie and had a wonderful session with them. I normaly do not take pictures with my guests but in this kind of situation it’s possible and they said that they would be happy if i took the camera with me.



So with my Nikon, who is almost sleeping , i could have a great day with the Sami people and my happy guests. And with Reindeer is fun to do  so arty farty.What a day. I know a few other Reindeer owners around and i must try to get in touch about the possibilities to do this more than once. I know lots of you would like to go!! 






Have a nice week.
Ole

  5. Hallå Ole!
    Hoppas allt är bra hos er. Fina bilder på Renarna du fick med dig hem. Måste ha varit en fin dag med kameran och Renarna. Kom precis hem från Syd Afrika, en härlig upplevelse med the Big Five. Nu väntar vi på våren så det blir lite fart i skogen.
    Ha de så gott så ses vi snart.
    Mvh / Kenny
