We took our three-year-old son to Lapland for Christmas. The experience was magical for him. We sledded down huge hills, experienced temperatures of -16 (which was quite warm considering it was -24 the day before we arrived). We got pulled on a sleigh by a real reindeer, saw the Northern Lights fully dancing (unfortunately my La Sardina couldn't capture this). We even met the real Santa!

I have only been shooting film properly for two years so I'm very much an amateur. I own a Sprocket Rocket, Spinner 360 and have recently got a LC-Wide, which is capable of some stunning shots.
