Iceland Photography Workshop with The Wandering Lens!
In a land where glaciers meet volcanoes and rugged cliffs lead to icebergs resting on a black sand beach, photo opportunities are never ending.
Iceland should be on every photographers wishlist.
With snow falling and the northern lights dancing above, winter is a magical time to explore this country that’s like no where else on earth.
Join me for seven days of aurora chasing, ice caving, waterfalls and winter landscape photography.
Silfra Snorkelling between continents
Gulfoss Waterfall + Geysir
Skogafoss and the Seljalandsfoss
Reynisfjara + Vik’s black sand beaches
Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon + Iceberg Beach
Ice Cave Photography Advenuture – Vatnajokull Glacier
Stokksnes + Vestrahorn
and…AURORA! (cross your fingers and toes)
Dates: February 20th – 26th, 2017
This workshop is seven days of outdoor adventures and thrilling experiences . Travelling along the South Coast of Iceland, we’ll visit some of the most scenic locations in the country photographing waterfalls, glaciers and dramatic coastal scenery.
As a small group, we will convoy in two 4WD’s stopping at the known and sometimes unknown places that take our breath away.
With the weather in Iceland playing a bit part in what and when we photograph, a flexible itinerary will be followed and is noted below. It’s all about letting nature tell us where to go and I’ll be ensuring we have the best opportunities possible to see as many of Iceland’s highlights and will of course be tracking the aurora predictions and cloud cover.
Group Size – Numbers will be restricted to 6 participants to ensure a comfortable journey and plenty of time for one on one photography tuition.
Trip Style – Comfortable Adventure. We will be spending the majority of our time outdoors in temperatures around zero degrees. While we will be sleeping in hotels and guesthouses, this isn’t a tour for those hoping to relax as we will be up from sunrise (7-8am) to sunset then those keen to photograph aurora can join the chase each evening. If you’re keen to capture incredible images and see all the beauty Iceland has to offer in the wind, rain and snow, this is the tour for you. That said, I do get cold too so heater breaks in the car or cafes are totally allowed, you’ll have to race me to a hot chocolate!
The following are included in the workshop price:
– 6 nights accommodation in hotels/guesthouses (twin share)
– Transport for the duration of the tour
– 7 days of photography tuition + creative guidance (as much or little as you wish)
– Ice Caving photography experience to the magnificent Blue Ice Cave in Vatnajokull Glacier

I just heard about this through your Instagram stories and thought I’d check it out. It sounds like an amazing opportunity… I’m in awe of your photography, and I can’t think of a better place to photograph and learn from you. Sadly I don’t think I’ll be able to make it this time, but I’ll start saving for the next workshop!

Great to hear Nadine, I’m sure there’ll be many more opportunities and hopefully another Iceland tour in the works for later next year!
