Workshop Information – The North in Focus

Are you looking to experience something a bit different in Iceland? Do you want to leave the crowds behind? Our northern Iceland photography workshop is geared towards people who want to see a less visited part of this amazing country. Icelandic locations, amazing waterfalls, stunning seascapes, thermal areas and the possibility of northern lights without the other tripod legs.

We will be taking super jeeps into some of Iceland’s most unique and beautiful waterfalls, exploring the thermal areas of Myvatn plus taking in some stunning locations on the way back to Reykjavik. Expect to visit locations such as Goðafoss, Aldeyjarfoss, Námaskarð, Dettifoss, Selfoss, Hrafnbjargarfoss, Hvítserkur rock and more.

Workshop Weekend Programme

We do not set out a specific location itinerary, as Peter and Thor will bring you to the best locations under prevailing light conditions. The workshop will, however, commence from Akureyri in Northern Iceland on the evening of 21st November. Exact times to be confirmed upon booking. The idea will be to fly in on the 21st or before to Reykjavik and catch a short and inexpensive domestic flight up north. We will be spending 3 nights in the Myvatn area, before beginning to travel by car back towards Reykjavik. We have a stopover along the way for one night near the stunning Hvítserkur rock. Our final night will be at Keflavik so people can catch onward flights on 26th November.

The workshop will include 4 sunset shoots, 4 sunrise shoots, afternoon shoots each day, super jeep excursion,  plus lots of northern lights we hope.
