Participants will be able to 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 some of them under sunsets, sunrises, and probably dramatic skies and weather along the way.
Iceland Photography Workshop and Tour which also focuses on night sky astrophotography and traditional landscape photography, alongside Northern Lights hunting and photography where possible.
Trying to capture the Aurora will be a high priority on this workshop, and the timing is carefully planned around a new moon, and dark sky dates to maximise chances. Ollie has spent months on end photographing Iceland in the winter months, capturing winter landscapes, Aurora, and also phenomena known as Mother of Pearl, or Nacreous Clouds, but also photographing the country under the starlight and producing landscape astrophotography shots.
Naturally having built a reputation on running landscape astrophotography courses (the first of their kind in Europe), structured astrophotography tuition will be delivered to the group at all available opportunities; at the time of writing, this is still the only Iceland photography workshop that offers this as an additional aspect to the course with a tutor with a proven published track record within the genre.
While the trip will include late nights stargazing, it is important to mention that it will still have a strong emphasis on capturing the amazing Icelandic landscape scenery and unrivalled winter light. In addition, landscape photography shoots will capitalise on some of the renowned Icelandic locations such as Jokulsarlon, Skogafoss, Diamond Beach, Snaefellsnes Peninsula, Stockness and Vestrahornbut, alongside some lesser known Iceland landscape photography locations.
Finally, especially relevant is the team size, which is capped at four; therefore, as a result, valuable one to one and group tuition can be delivered far more effectively, helping to ensure that everyone not only enjoys travelling and seeing the sights but in addition acquires new photographic skills.
Due to 7-seater, 4x4s not really providing enough space and comfort for five people, luggage and camera gear, 4×4 minivans are now used for over four people (plenty of space).
