Iceland Summer Photo Adventure!!
Having been to Iceland twice already in winter under my own steam the initial attraction of the summer workshop with Colby was the fact that everything would look totally different without the snow and ice. I soon realized what a great advantage it was not to be concerned with accommodation (in this case camp sites), transportation or timing for the good light. In fact the light was incredibly good for most of the trip, with the sun dipping below the horizon for a just few short hours between midnight and 3AM. Colby has been to Iceland more than anyone else that I know and has intimate knowledge of the island and where to be at which time of day to maximize the chances of a productive shoot. There is a high level of preparation with realistic back up options in place should the light or weather not cooperate. Colby’s has a natural sensitivity towards the individual photographic needs of his customers as well as a profound empathy for people in general. He is fun to be around and is probably also the most traveled person I’ve met. The high number of repeat customers on each trip is in itself testimony to how good his workshops are. It is always great to see old friends on Colby’s trips and equally good to make new ones. I would absolutely recommend any of Colby’s workshops to anyone looking to shoot at some of the world’s premier photo locations as well as at many perhaps some people might not have considered. Pros: Friendships, Relaxed & Stress-free, Meticulous Planning, Great Locations Cons: I needed to buy a bigger tent, sleeping pad and sleeping bag when I returned!
