Join award-winning landscape photographer Brian Rueb as he leads a photography tour through the rugged beauty of Iceland.
Iceland is a magical destination for photography any time of year…but winter is out of this world. Frozen waterfalls, Glaciers, steaming geothermal areas, Ice berg filled beaches, and the bluest ice caves, are all part of this surreal landscape. Of course, there is always a possibility of witnessing the spectacle of the aurora as it dances across the night sky. Join us as we'll spend 8 days exploring the best of the southern half of this country looking for the best light and locations to capture some of the winter magic.
Rugged mountains, geothermal hotspots, enormous waterfalls, lush moss-covered valleys, glacially-fed lagoons, and black sand beaches. Iceland is a landscape photographer's dream location.
During the summer months, Iceland never sees the sunlight fully disappear. Winter brings more "normal" schedule for light. Sunrises occur around 9am and the sun sets around 6-7pm. This means on nights where the chance of aurora activity are minimal...you'll get a full night of sleep. During those sunrise and sunset times Brian will be working hard to put you into position to capture the best locations with the best light! Frozen Waterfalls, Ice Caves, rugged and desolate seascapes and steaming geothermal vents...there's something wonderful just waiting to be captured.
Experience is everything when selecting the right photography tour or workshop. Brian has over 11 trips under his belt in Iceland since 2010. Together he has logged well over 250 days worth of experience within Iceland doing photography related activities. While most tours will have a single location in mind. Brian has plan A, B, C and sometimes D for each day of your workshop. He KNOWS this area because he has explored it. You're in great hands. Brian is also excellent at photographic instruction so whatever level you're at they can help push you to the next level in terms of composition, creativity, and post-processing.
If you're serious about your photography, or just looking for an experienced guide to help you find some of the best Iceland has to offer, why not pack up and head to Iceland? There's an amazing photographic adventure awaiting....
