HOW IT WORKS
This workshop is focused on maximizing your time "on the ground" photographing the beauty of Iceland. Instead of hotels, we will be renting individual (or couples) "Camper Vans". This gives us the flexibility to follow the weather and Auroras in Iceland. For our main meals, we will visit the great home-style restaurants in Iceland.
We will be using Happy Campers of Iceland (pictured above). You can check out the different campers on their website. We are traveling after the end of their "main" Season, so prices are reduced! (And there will be less tourists!) Check out their FAQ.
- Driving - We are not expecting to be driving on snow/ice - we will be on/near the main roads - which are well serviced.
- A Valid Drivers License is required (from your country of origin).
- No strenuous hikes - Most photography locations are near the vehicles.
- Meals - We will generally eat two meals a day, with snacks in between. We will probably eat at a local restaurant every night.
- Showers - We will be "on the road, but our goal is to camp at a campground every night with services.
To get the most of your trip to Iceland, bring a DLSR (or Mirrorless) camera(s) which allow for manual settings of Aperture, Exposure duration and ISO. The camera should support interchangeable lenses - FAST (F2.8 or faster (F1.4)) and WIDE (20MM or wider, 14MM is preferable) are best for nighttime/Aurora photography (lenses can be rented on-line). You should also bring a tripod and an Intervalometer. Bring a laptop for storing your images and Lightroom CC training. Full preparation instructions are provided upon registration.
