It’s the experience of a lifetime to witness the epic beauty of the Northern Lights. Katie Linendoll received a special invite to head to Fairbanks, Alaska with Canon experts, including Canon Explorer of Light Ken Sklute, to learn how to photograph this celestial light show in person. During her time in Fairbanks she enjoyed the unparalleled beauty of the landscape and met some of the kindest, most accommodating people of anywhere on her travels. She realized that capturing the Northern Lights requires a trifecta of the right camera equipment, cold weather gear and ideal weather conditions. Together with photographic guides, who led her to secret locations, she was extremely lucky to witness jaw dropping Northern Lights displays and capture the perfect shot.
