At this time of the year in Iceland, the golden light can last for up to 6 hours each night creating magical conditions for dramatic landscape and nature photography.
Iceland is an island country located just south of the Arctic Circle in the North Atlantic. Natural features include glaciers, volcanoes, mountains, sheer rock cliffs, pristine black sand beaches, roaring waterfalls, and much more. Wildlife opportunities include whales, seals, reindeer, fox, shorebirds, various waterfowl, raptors, and the ever-present iconic Icelandic ponies.
In order to capture this amazing light, you have to be awake, most of the night, so we will be reversing our sleep cycles, shooting at night and sleeping during the day.
In order to avoid restrictions placed on our trip because the location of our hotel each night, we will be camping instead, usually near some of the most impressive & epic locations you have ever seen. This trip is certainly tailored towards the more adventurous, but instead of leaving unhappy with your images because of bad weather, we will have the freedom to chase the light and weather across the island, allowing us to be in the right place at the right time.
Focus on making great images
We will be keeping the group size small, only 5 photographers, so you get maximum attention and an intimate shooting experience.
Itinerary: We will literally be chasing the light everyday! Who knows where we will end up, it may be far north at a remote waterfall or on a say beach filled with chances of glacial ice. What I can tell you is you will visit epic locations every single day and get some amazing images all the while having a fun and adventurous time with a small group of like minded and enthusiastic photographers.
Tour begins at 3pm on the 23rd of June and ends on July 1st at 2pm. We will pick up and drop off clients at the same hotel listed below.
