Join professional photographer Loren Fisher on his fifth trip to Iceland in less than two years. We’ll have seven days of glorious photography as we explore the beauty of Iceland in the summer. There are many reasons why Iceland has become one of the world’s premier photography locations: the people are friendly (most speak English!), the scenery is unmatched and the locations are unique. We will explore well known and little known parts of the country, getting the most out of the long summer days. We’ll shoot as many sunsets and sunrises as we can and grab naps when we need to during the day! We will be there right at the beginning of Aurora Borealis season, so if we are lucky we’ll see the Northern Lights! We will cover a lot of territory, see lots of sites and make many memorable photos.

We will start on the Reykjanes peninsula where we’ll photograph historic sod roof houses and then head to the Snaefellsjokull Peninsula for a special waterfalls and mountain scene, rock formations, black stone beach, rock bridge, a black church and quaint villages. Next are more spectacular waterfalls, Europe’s largest glacier up close, black sand beaches reaching out to haunting sea stacks, glacial lagoons and the amazing diamond beach where chucks of ice float up on the black sand making for amazing compositions. Even if you aren’t a wildlife photographer you’ll have fun shooting puffins, those crazily cute birds that have a permanent sad face. You won’t need more than a 300mm lens to get great shots. Sunrise and sunset on black beach make for special photos. We’ll see so many spectacular things that even the worst photographer ever would make great photos!

There is a limit of seven participants so you won’t be crowded as we drive or shoot. We will be in a large passenger van, we’ll have plenty of space for you and your equipment.

Who should attend
If you want to see the beauty and splendor of one of the world’s most spectacular places, this trip is for you – your photographic experience doesn’t matter. Loren will be working with you to help you improve your photography, no matter your level. If you need it, Loren will help with mastering your camera settings, using the proper lens, composition and how to capture what you are seeing with your camera. Most of our shooting locations will near our van, some walking will be required, including wandering on sand beaches and glaciers. There won’t be long, strenuous hiking but you could be walking over rough and narrow paths.
