Hotel Rangá, a luxury hotel located on Iceland’s southern coast, just 90 minutes away from Reykjavík, is offering the gig of a lifetime.

The hotel is one of the few in Iceland to have a northern lights wake-up call for its guests, and now it’s pushing the aurora borealis perks even further.

It’s calling all aspiring photographers to come and stay for free for one month if they agree to capture photos and videos of the northern lights during their stay.

The job opportunity, titled “lights catcher,” will allow one lucky person to build up their portfolio by taking a trip to one of the most beautiful destinations in the world.

The gig will start mid-September and end mid-October, during which the “lights catcher” will be working the night shift, shooting the night sky to capture the impressive celestial phenomena.

In exchange for their high-quality images of the northern lights, the photographer will receive room and board at the hotel (including the hot tub and the access to the hotel’s stargazing observatory), free flights to and from Iceland, and access to the hotel’s sister property, Highland Center Hrauneyjar.
