Iceland Summer Adventure 2019
Come join us 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 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 28th 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.
June 28th – July 4th, 2019
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.

A Truly Tailored Experience
I’m a full time working photographer who is always looking to further my skills. After chatting with Colby I decided that his Iceland photography workshop would be a great fit for me and I was right. Colby pays special attention to individual needs and will keep handing out the knowledge for as long as you keep asking for it. I would recommend a Colby Brown workshop for anyone from a pure beginner photographer to a… Read more “A Truly Tailored Experience”
Out of a handful of Iceland Photography Tours I’ve researched, Colby’s quick responses to my queries put me at ease with what was expected. The trip itself was an absolute blast – I’ve never traveled with a nicer group of people, and Colby, with his sidekick, Peyton, made sure everyone was well taken care of. The weather in Iceland is unpredictable, and can change in a matter of hours. Colby and Peyton used their extensive… Read more “Amazing adventure”
I Got To Visit Another World
Colby’s Iceland workshop took me and my son, Parker, so far beyond any vacation experience. It was a chance to see parts of this planet most never get to see, in the kind of light that leaves you without words to describe. Fortunately, words aren’t required to bring home a piece of it. We were all able to capture images of some of the most spectacular sights you can imagine. With Colby’s expert knowledge of… Read more “I Got To Visit Another World”
trip was absolutely amazing
In June 2013 I had the privilege of attending a workshop in Iceland with Colby. The trip was absolutely amazing, to say the least. Iceland is full of stunning and diverse landscapes and is easily one of the most beautiful places that I have ever visited. I had never been on a workshop before and did not know what to expect, but it was clear to me immediately (from the very first contact e-mail) that… Read more “trip was absolutely amazing”
The Epitome of Adventure

It is a land like no other that will capture your heart as you capture… Read more “The Epitome of Adventure”
Love the workshops
I’ve been on two trips with Colby. Iceland in the summer and Norway in the winter. Both were very different experiences, but I could see my skill growing with each trip. Colby knows great spots to hit for amazing light and can answer any question you throw at him. I love the groups because I learn from the questions they have and the different views everyone has. The trips are fun and beneficial. I will… Read more “Love the workshops”
