MANSHAUSEN2020 Workshop is hosted by Christin Eide Photography with special guest speaker; Nikon Ambassador and acclaimed Photographer Frøydis Geithus. This will be an adventurous workshop with a laid back atmosphere in and around the area of Manshausen, Steigen, just north of the Arctic Circle, Norway, 4-6th May 2020.

We will be staying in specially designed cabins situated on the waterfront in a magical landscape. Every cabin houses 2 /3 people and as a tight knit group, networking will be as important as building your portfolio. There will be 2 masterclasses and 2 photoshoots each day. We will be using two real couples to make it as authentic as possible, each couple will have two sets of wedding attire. We will focus on both natural and flash lighting.

Join us for fun & adventure at MANSHAUSEN2020


Frøydis Geithus

Frøydis is a traveler born by the fjords in the West of Norway.

Photography found her at a young age, when she explored different ways to express herself.

Her passion for weddings and travel has sent her around the world. She is published in numerous Magazines and Blogs, and she specializes in destination Weddings. This has taken her to places like Canada, Singapore, The Seychelles, Iceland, Italy, France and many more. But she also loves to photograph in Norway, and most of her awarded pictures are from her childhood “backyard”. 

She has been teaching at multiple workshops and events around the world.

And her mission is to make people braver and go inwards, as she stronlgy believe that the only way to make real magic is to find it within yourself.

Christin Eide

My name is Christin Eide, born and raised in Norway, worked as a professional Photographer for more than 12 years, awarded Photographer of The Year in 2014 and Best Wedding Photographer of The Year 2014-2019 by NFF – The Norwegian Photographers Association.

The recent years I have travelled the world doing weddings and elopements, that has brought me to; Spain, Greece, Denmark, Sweden, Italy, France, USA, Ireland, Bali, Iceland, Austria, Thailand, Hong Kong and Croatia. As you might have noticed, I am a big fan of hiking and adventurous elopements. In Norway I am hanging in my own backyard with Lofoten, Senja and Aurland as my definite favorites…

I would proudly call myself an Elopement specialist. Be outdoors in the nature, hike to a mountain top and share magical moments with adventurous couples, lies closest to my heart…

Hope to see you at Manshausen2020
