2018 Iceland Landscape Photography Tour

It’s February in Iceland, and, consequently, it will be cold! The Iceland Landscape Photography Tour, however, is run in February because this can be an amazingly captivating time of year, breathtaking landscapes, unrivalled starlight, and of course Aurora!  

Therefore, this Icelandic photographic workshop focuses on catching all the aforementioned, over a stunning winter wilderness, and in iconic locations, embraced by winters’ grip.

Nightscape Photography Tuition

This workshop includes innovative night sky photography planning, shoots and tuition; Northern Lights planning, hunting and shooting is also included.

Expertise 

The Iceland workshop is open to photographers at all levels, although previous landscape photography experience is highly advantageous (please contact Ollie to discuss where you are with your photography).

First of all learn, or develop, existing skills whilst visiting the breathtaking landscapes Iceland has to offer;  Iceland boasts some of the most unique and consequently diverse landscapes on planet Earth. Therefore, there will be plenty of opportunity to photograph sunsets, sunrises, and quite probably dramatic skies and weather along the way.

The 2018 Iceland Photography Tour will also focus on night sky photography over the majestic winter landscapes.

Furthermore, hunt the Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights) and capture the magic under expert guidance from a renowned night sky landscape photographer.

The main objective of this photographic tour will be to maximise chances of viewing and capturing the Northern Lights on camera. Although there is an itinerary for this workshop, it will be subject to amendment due to revolving around clear skies, mapped out via weather surveys, prior to the workshop commencing. 

In addition, landscape locations could include, but are not indicative of, Reykjanes Peninsula, Jokulsarlon Glacier Lagoon and Iceberg Beach, Hofn, Eystrahorn, Snaefellsnes Peninsula (Mount Kirkjufell & Kirkjufellsfoss Waterfall); furthermore, exact locations will also be determined by the weather as a whole, as it is possible for Route 1 (Iceland’s main road circling the country) to be closed off at various sections in the winter.

Although the trip will include late nights’ stargazing, by no means will the amazing Icelandic scenery and light be overlooked in the day, as a result, locations selected will capitalise on Iceland’s beauty by both day and night, on this photographic Iceland adventure.

Finally, especially relevant is the group size, capped at four, thus as a result of the small number of participants, valuable one to one and group tuition can be delivered far more effectively, ultimately ensuring everyone not only has a great trip, but in addition learns new skills.
