Iceland Summer Adventure

Come join us for an incredible Iceland Summer photo workshop adventure during the summer solstice. Unlike other tours in Iceland that confine you to specific locations based on your accommodation, this 8 day educational photography workshop/tour is focused on making sure you have the best opportunities to capture epic light each night. We have no set itinerary as we will base each days shooting location based on the latest weather reports, road conditions and our team’s experience photographing in Iceland (this will our 30th trip to Iceland). Each night we will set up camp in an incredibly beautiful and serene location, allowing us to rest before heading out to repeat the process all over again.

Photographers Jokulsarlon Iceland Winter Photo Workshop
Jokulsarlon Glacial Lagoon Icebergs Iceland Photo Workshop

Iceland is located in one of the northern most locations on this planet. In June/July, you will witness what is called as the “Midnight Sun”. This is where sunrise and sunset converge and you have hours of amazing light to shoot every night. However in order to capture this amazing light, you have to be awake, so we will be reversing our sleep cycles, shooting at night and sleeping during the day in order to maximize our time in Iceland.

In order to avoid the restrictions placed on a trip because the location of our hotel each night, we will be camping instead, occasionally near some of the most gorgeous and impressive locations you have ever seen. This trip is certainly tailored slightly for the more adventurous, but instead of leaving Iceland unhappy with your images because of poor weather, we will have the freedom to chase the light and weather, allowing me to put you in front of the right locations with the right kind of epic light you are looking for.

F.A.Q

The workshop starts on June 28th, 2019 in the morning. You can either fly in the night before (June 27th) and get a hotel or arrive early in the morning on the 28th, before 8am.

The workshop ends on July 5th. We will drop you off at the airport between 2-3pm or to a hotel of your choosing if you are staying longer in Iceland.

You will fly into the Keflavik Airport (KEF) located roughly 50 minutes outside of Reykjavik, the capital of Iceland.

Be sure to check in us before purchasing any flights to make sure things line up correctly.

In the Summer in Iceland, you get to experience the "Midnight Sun". This is when Sunset and Sunrise converge, providing the opportunity to have 6hr+ of incredible light every evening.

No, for this workshop we are camping each night, which gives us the flexibility to move around the weather systems in Iceland. It gives us the freedom to get all of you to the best spots with the best light each and every day. That said, the campsites we use do have bathrooms, showers and often electric outlets.

Each vehicle that we rent will be outfitted with a series of splitters allowing you to charge your gear as we move from location to location throughout the day. These splitters will take US wall plugs. Camera battery chargers that use USB will also work great!

If you have your own sleeping bag, sleeping pad and tent that is rated for high winds, you are free to bring it, otherwise, we can rent the gear for you via an Icelandic Outfitter for an additional cost (usually around $200 USD).

Every day we will have at least one sit down meal while relying on snacks most of the rest of the time. Every 2 or 3 days we will stop at a local grocery store and stock up on food and snacks.

Pedro Kin

WORKSHOP MANAGER/PHOTO INSTRUCTOR

Pedro is a Portuguese landscape photographer based in Slovakia but you’ll often find him in the most scenic mountains, forests, and fjords of Europe. Favoring the cold landscapes and the unspoiled nature of northern Europe, the higher latitudes do not stop him from going after the perfect shot. When not traveling the world with his camera, you can find him back home teaching workshops, testing new gear and experimenting with photography.
