And the Aurora Borealis!

The Wild Bunch!

Gallery of Iceland Images

Join us in Iceland in March of 2018 for a fascinating photographic journey along the south coast of Iceland as we seek beautiful landscapes and intriguing winter waterfall images by day – and hunt the Northern Lights at night!

Iceland gives us an outstanding opportunity to combine landscapes and Northern Lights in the same image – and we’ll have several opportunities to “reflect” the Aurora in bodies of water!

We’ve designed an 11 day odyssey with our friend and guide Siggi Stefnisson, who has published a photography book on Iceland’s Auroras.  The four aurora images in this group are from Siggi.

This adventure is limited to eight participants.  We have secured a large adventure-capable vehicle for this adventure, with ample space for each participant to manage camera gear. 

Our journey will begin and end in Reykjavik, Iceland.  The majority of the meals are included.  We have a base-camp approach to the adventure, minimizing moves and maximizing our opportunities for daytime and nighttime photography.

 

We’ll start with winter views of Iceland’s Strokker (active geyser) and the famous Gulfoss Waterfall. 

 

Then we’ll work our way along the south coast of Iceland, staying 3 nights in the Vik area, where we’ll photograph mountains, coastlines, waterfalls, basalt columns, black sand beaches and other nature shots by day – and seek the Aurora at night.

Then we’ll move to a new base camp right next to the famous glacial lagoon enabling us photographic opportunities of the glacial lagoon, icebergs on the black sand beach, and ice blue glaciers. 

 

 

 

We have scheduled a "designed for photography" outing into an ice cave! 

This base camp will put us in perfect position for interesting compositions with the Northern Lights at nightfall.

 

 

We’ll head back to Reykjavik for a night before the journey home.

Please note that the Aurora does not show up every night – and that Iceland does experience cloudy conditions that could prevent us from seeing the Aurora often (or possibly at all). We worked with our team in Iceland to choose the region of Iceland, the time of year, and the phase of the moon to give us the best possible odds of photographing the Aurora!

Build the exposures that support the designs you intend in your images! Meet us a day early for a one day intense classroom workshop that will give you the skills to take control of your camera. We make it simple to move to manual exposure - and give you the tools to understand what you are doing and how to do it. Most people we teach never look back because it is easier than letting the wizards in the camera make your creative decisions for you. Then, we'll spend some time looking at our workflow - and how you can take great exposures and follow them to final images in Lightroom or Photoshop.
