Inspiring Photography Tours & Workshops

Intro

Skogafoss,-Iceland-0719High mountains, volcanoes with huge craters, majestic glaciers, bleak rocky deserts, mountain lakes, immense lava fields and geothermal hot springs. Welcome to the highlands of Iceland.

The Icelandic Highlands are where man has never made his home and is still a rare visitor. This area has never been inhabited or cultivated. Here, nature is still at its rawest.

View-from-Hnausapollur-Crater-2290The Highlands of Iceland seem forbidding, especially to a landscape photographer, but only at first. Once you start exploring the inner secrets held within the realm of fire and ice, a sense of adventure takes hold and guides you through a world that you could never have imagined.

Jökulsárlón-Icebergs,-Iceland-1367Vast and fascinating, the Icelandic highlands is an isolated, raw and rugged expanse which once visited, can never be forgotten. This is a region where you feel humbled by extraordinary scenery and breathtaking views.

Equipment requirements

Camera and lenses

cameraPlease make sure you know how to use your camera or at least the basic functions – make sure you bring the camera’s manual along with you. Focal length of wide angle to 300mm will be required.

Tripod

tripod-layerA sturdy tripod is strongly recommended. If you need advice on purchasing a tripod, we recommend the Manfrotto 055 or similar. If you own a low budget light aluminium tripod such as Jessops and you are wondering if it is good enough, no, it is not. It will not allow you to trust your gear on it and it will not allow us to help you with tuition.

ND Grad Filters

filtersNeutral Density Graduated filters are highly recommended for balancing exposure difference between land and sky. We recommend a 1.5 stop hard and a 3 stop soft (if you are just starting with filters). Full instruction can be given during the workshop to help you with the correct use of filters.

ND Filter (optional)

To get the very best out of your images and the locations, we suggest that you bring a good Neutral Density filter with you such as the Lee Little Stopper or Big Stopper or the Singh-Ray Vari-ND filter for long exposures.

Shutter Release Cable

You will need one for longer than 30 seconds exposures.

Clothing

Warm and weatherproof clothing and neoprene wellies (if possible) is a must as the weather can be quite cold this time of year, especially during twilight times that we will be photographing. Temperatures can range from -4 to +10. ☀ ☁ ❄. We also encourage you to bring some digital files of your previous work as there might be opportunities to discuss your portfolio and supply you with beneficial feedback.

Insurance

Although all ‘Inspiring Photography Workshops’ clients are covered by our public liability insurance, we recommend that you take your own travel insurance also.

Post Processing

Testimonials

Wendy Collens from England

wendy-collens-iceland-photo-tourThe photo tour to Iceland far exceeded my expectations – it was a full itinerary with a view around every corner. Dimitri was professional in his approach, gave everyone his time and energy and I much appreciated his assistance when I needed it most.

I learned a lot from his obvious knowledge and passion for landscape photography and I can’t thank him enough for his help whilst maintaining a pleasant manner, with lots of laughter and a fun time.

Truly inspirational!


Bruce Smith from Canada

Bruce Smith • Iceland Photo TourIt was a fabulous time in Iceland in August. The tour was planned perfectly – from meeting us at the airport to dropping us off at the end, and everything in between. The weather even cooperated!

Iceland is not to be missed and we saw some incredible sights, both along the coast and in the interior highlands.

Thanks, Dimitri!
