Think puffins.  And glaciers.  Waterfalls.  Birds!  Volcanos.  Lush green volcanic landscapes.  Black sand beaches.  Oh and Geysir – the geyser after which all the others are named!  But you have to see Strokkur!  Join us in July of 2019 as we explore southern Iceland with cameras and a vehicle and guide that can get us where we need to go!


Puffins?  Iceland is the breeding grounds for a huge percentage of the world’s puffins.  And, we have arranged a special outing, away from the crowded visitor stops, where we may find puffins coming and going from the sea, feeding their young.

Glaciers?  Oh baby, these glaciers are amazing – and they are approachable.  We have arranged a 3 hour glacier walk so that you can compose those amazing blue against white glacier images with wide angle lenses.  And we’ll find other places to explore the very foot of glaciers, fresh icebergs in glacial lakes, and icebergs stranded on black sand beaches.  A photographic feeding frenzy!


Waterfalls?  The typical tourist trips (and many photography groups) go to a couple big volume, relatively uninspiring waterfalls complete with bus parking and hot dog stands.  We may make a quick stop at one of those, but we have scoped out some amazing waterfall photography opportunities – where we can move around to great angles and don’t have to shoot between the shoulders of the point and shoot crowds!

Birds?  There are a number of species of birds that show up for the Icelandic summer – when there is plenty to eat – to court, nest, and raise young.  We will have great opportunities to photograph artic terns, fulmars, wimbrels, oystercatchers, greater skuas and artic skuas (and don’t forget those puffins)!

Volcanos?  Iceland sits of a huge rift between the North American and European plates, which are spreading at the rate of an inch a year!  And it sits over its own Iceland hotspot.  All that combines to make this a very, very active volcanic region.  We’ll have the opportunity to photograph craters – and crater lakes.

Landscapes.  We’ll find volcanic features everywhere we look!  Basalt columns, lava flows, hot springs, and old islands stranded by volcanic debris which displaced the sea around them!

Those volcanos and the features they have spawned combine with snow and ice and vibrant greens in ways that absolutely demand photographic attention.  Oh and don’t forget that we’ll work a number of compositions, both close up and at infinity, of the famous black sand beaches!

Old Geysir is not so regular these days.  But we’ll pay homage.  And just a few feet away Strokkur begins its eruption unlike any geyser we have photographed anywhere else in the world!  You have to capture some of these images – it’s just something you have to do in photography!

Iceland tourism has grown slowly, and is finally beginning to take off.  For years, we held off offering an Iceland Photography Adventure because we couldn’t offer you an appropriately sized vehicle, decent dining, and rooms with private facilities.  Now, things are falling into place and we have a great combination of logistics to support our adventures.

And, the company we are working with has consented to build the tour “our way”, which is to scrap the notion of a fixed itinerary (the weather was going to change it anyway) and set up well-situated base camps where we can watch the weather and make a daily call on what will be performing best!  We’ll weave together a set of photographic outings to give you access to most or all of the great photography opportunities noted above – when the weather conditions are likely to support great photography.

We are keeping this group small – 5 to 10 participants and one or two of us as photography guides.  And our Iceland driver guide is, himself, a fine photographer.
