Iceland Summer Adventure 2017

After selling out of my first 2017 Iceland Summer Photo Adventure (June 24th – July 1st), I have decided to offer a second workshop. Come join me for an adventure in Iceland during the summer solstice. Unlike other tours in Iceland that confine you to specific locations based on your accommodation, this 8 day educational photography 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 my experience photographing in Iceland (this will be my 16th 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.

Reflections of Icebergs from Jokulsarlon 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.
