The Nordic Sami reindeer herders

Last month i had the privilege to join a group of Sami people from the Vilhelmina Norra Sameby as they herd their reindeers.

It is something that i wanted to photograph for a long time now. 

As the days are short, I had to take advantage of every minute. I had to make the best out of the days I was given to follow the herders.  

I am really happy with the result of the first shooting and looking forward to next time which will probably be around Spring time.

I have a lot of respect for the Sami people. They work harder than most of the people around the world.

Here are some pictures from my days in Norrland:
