September 20-28, 2019

Workshop Cost
$8,250- Per Person

ALL INCLUSIVE

Iceland is a stunningly beautiful place if you enjoy strange and desolate landscapes, and what photographer doesn’t love strange desolate landscapes.

 

From a geological standpoint, Iceland is a very young country, still in the midst of its own creation. Shaped by the forces of nature, the, barren landscapes demonstrate the creativity powers of the four basic elements—earth, air, fire, and water—in a dramatic way. Active volcanoes, bright green valleys, glacier-cut fjords, black sand beaches, and roaring rivers are the most distinctive features of the Icelandic landscape. And although they are very accessible, they still remain virtually untouched by human civilization. In a fast-paced world of sprawling development, Iceland's pure nature and empty expanses stand out as a luxury.

These sights are paired with the expertise of on-hand professional photographers Peter Lorber and Courtenay Gilbert as they teach you how to get the most from your gear and show you some new techniques to capture the unique beauty of Iceland. In addition a local guide with vast experience in landscape photography of Iceland, will make sure you get to the best locations at the best possible light.

There is no telling what you may discover during our Iceland workshop, but with unparalleled guidance, a group of likeminded people, and a location without limits, the doors are wide open for a world of possibilities. 

 

And as in all of our workshops we enjoy great restaurants, stay in upscale accommodations, and share lots of laughter while surrounded by breathtaking scenery. This makes our workshops perfect not only for you the photographer, but also for your non-photographer travel partner looking for an amazing vacation!
