Workshop Information -Snæfellsnes in Focus

Our Snæfellsnes and Reykjanes photography workshop takes in some of the most amazing views in Iceland. It’s a great opportunity to take an extended weekend away and still get 4 solid days shooting in. Our focus on this workshop will be primarily seascapes but we will also shoot many iconic locations in Snæfellsness such as Kirkjufell and the Black Church.

Both peninsulas boast some amazing seascapes. The area is especially famous for its unique sea stacks and formations. As always we have teamed up with local guide, and one of Iceland’s top photographers Thorarinn Jonsson. Thor is a native of the Snæfellsnes Peninsula and boosts an incredible knowledge of the area.

A trip to Iceland would never be complete without the hope of shooting those amazing green lights. We will do are upmost to get you that perfect northern lights image. We so so many images of simple green skies. What most photographers don’t realise is a great northern lights image is all about great foreground too. We will make sure to have you in the best position possible to get that knock your socks off image.
