We’re announcing a brand new “drone-focused” photography adventure in Iceland.  After literally a year of research and planning, we have designed a great itinerary and secured unique tourism licenses to put you in exciting situations to make images unlike any you can make without leaving the ground!

For the most part, we’ll avoid places where normal tours go, instead finding ourselves well away from the beaten paths.  Those locations, plus our ability to “see” the scenes from unique positions will unveil exciting waterfalls…

Volcanic craters…

 

Thermal features…

Geological formations…

Rivers…

Glacial perspectives…

 

 

And abstract patterns!

You can choose to document these beautiful natural features from new and exciting angles.

 

Or, you can “find the art” in angles, patterns, designs, colors and more!

 

We fully recognize that sometimes weather conditions (think wind and rain in Iceland) “ground” the drones.  We have designed this adventure in a way that gives us options for exciting conventional photography when drone flying is not advised.

Drones arrived rapidly on the planet, catching those who manage public places and resources off guard, and leaving drone pilots without guidelines for operation that took in the safety and well-being of people, animals, and other resources.  Bad judgements and negative impacts have, recently, reduced the opportunity for drone photography, planet wide.  This adventure complies with local laws and has secured appropriate licenses to give you unique opportunities that simply don’t exist in most places.

 

 

 

The drone images on this page were created by Siggi, our Icelandic guide, and a quite capable photographer who has published photography books on Iceland and was recognized for his outstanding image of a volcanic eruption and lightning!

The Pantanal, in Southwest Brazil, is probably the best place in the world to photograph jaguars. And that photography is largely accomplished from a boat. We have concocted a photography safari that will take you to the best spots at the best time with a great local operator. Jaguars are the object, but we'll also find giant river otters, ocelots, macaws, caiman, capybaras, monkeys, anteaters, tapirs, and toucans!

Winter brings out the "ice" in Iceland. Glaciers photograph with strong blues. Waterfalls are often ice encrusted or even frozen solid. Ice, stranded on the beaches is in a better position for backlight - and looks much more dramatic in close-ups. And, Iceland presents an outstanding opportunity to compose great images of the Northern Lights at nigh! We'll also take time to explore an ice cave!
