Our photography workshops to Iceland are always so much fun to run. The country is just full of photo opportunities and worthy challenges. The harsh weather that carves this land can leave you with a worthy adversary, but the results always make the battle worth the ride. On days, you can photograph the landscapes of Iceland all day and all night long.
In the winter of 2022, we’ll be heading back for yet another incredible trip to this land of fire and ice.
Iceland Photo Tour and Workshop
Who’s ready for a winter adventure in Iceland? The hope is for brilliant sunrises and sunsets (only 6 hours apart) mixed with beautiful light throughout the day. At night, we’re hoping for northern lights and starry skies.
Of course, the reality is that Iceland is a total wildcard. The weather could be perfect, or it can be wild. And, often times, it can be both in the same hour. Regardless of the weather, we’ll have a great photography adventure, and make the absolute most of the conditions. It’s going to be brilliant. There is a reason Iceland is one of the most photographed locations in the world; it is just unreal.
Dates: To Be Announced.
Start/End City: Reykjavik, Iceland
Price: To be Announced.
Participants: Max 10
Skill Level: Any
Activity Level: No major hiking, only walks. Low fitness requirements.
Even if you’ve been to Iceland before, you might not have been in the winter months. And, locations change greatly depending on the conditions. So, in planning this trip, Ivan and I have blended a mix of classic locations and some things you likely haven’t done. The full itinerary will vary greatly due to the conditions. Essentially, in the winter in Iceland, we will play things by ear a bit to ensure everyone has the opportunity for as many amazing photos as possible.

How is The Winter Iceland Photography Workshop Different?
It is worth noting that this workshop is slightly different than most photography tours simply due to the fact that there’s not a whole lot of daylight in Iceland in February.
Since we only have 6-7 hours of daylight, we’ll likely shoot most of those hours. We’ll arrive before sunrise at a location and shoot until the light changes. Then, we’ll find another location to shoot. We won’t spend a lot of time driving in the middle of the day as we don’t want to waste the light.
Moreover, since there will be so much time without daylight we’ll be doing more photography tutorials and classroom work. We’ll have one-on-one time almost every day. And, there will be 2 classroom sessions: 1) on the business of photography, and 2) on building a presence as a photographer.
Of course, this could all change if we get clear skies and northern lights every night. Which, is the other difference. This tour is set in where we spend the night, but we’ll shoot where/when/what the conditions allow.
Who is Ivan Thor Olafsson?
Ivan is an Icelandic photographer and a fantastic guy. He worked with Jeff Bartlett and I on the last trip in Iceland. He’s a great teacher, and an even better person. He’ll be our local source of knowledge and help with photography instruction. You can follow Ivan and his work on Instagram.
Who is Greg Snell?
By now, I think most of you know Greg. Greg is a film maker and videographer. He assists a lot of these photography workshops shooting b-roll and helping participants with video-related items. Go and check out Greg on YouTube.
