History

Originally, photographer Christian Noergaard wanted to be an explorer. Later he channeled his passion for photography towards the travel business. Organized tourism, however, proved to be a bit tame for his adventurous spirit, and in 2009 he founded Better Moments with Philip Boissevain. They got around the tameness, and took anyone anywhere including locations where only few photo enthusiasts had gone before.

As noted environmentalists, Better Moments was among the first in Scandinavia to bring photo enthusiasts from around the globe to some of the most exotic parts of the world including Svalbard, Abisko and Bhutan. The focus was to create exciting experiences where the guests came home with unique and amazing images. These legendary pioneering adventures led Better Moments to be known as the Scandinavian founder of Photo Workshops.

Cooperation with the best
In 2010, Better Moments embarked on a number of strategic partnerships with some of the industry’s most important players, e.g. National Geographic Nordic, Digital Photo and Profifoto to further inspire the world through photo workshops and expeditions.

Today with offices in Copenhagen, Better Moments works with some of the best providers and experts in the travel industry. Christian Noergaard and his team continue to pioneer and search for new outstanding destinations around the world, such as Greenland and the Faroe Islands.
