Southern Contrasts - Glaciers, Volcanoes & Waterfalls
This early season photographic holiday combines some of Iceland’s classic and iconic sights with many off the beaten track locations. Although the 1st May is the official first day of summer in Iceland, the mountains and highlands will still have a covering of snow making this the perfect time for those spectacular and unusual shots with a wintery back-drop.This end of May departure is just three weeks from the summer solstice with the sun disappearing for around three hours only; almost twenty four hours of brightness and plenty of magical ambient light will ensure sunrises and sunsets that go on and on affording maximum time behind the lens to capture some memorable images. Outside of Reykjavik the hotel accommodations have been chosen for their spectacular situations, comfort and modern amenities. Partners of photographers will be welcomed. Photography tutor Martin Sammtleben will work throughout enabling participants to return home with a unique Iceland portfolio. Lightroom tutorials from beginner to advanced will be offered allowing participants to learn how to develop their images to a high standard.
“We felt privileged to see your truly incredible country, words cannot do it justice, you just have to go there and see, we had no idea that it would be so amazing… we came home with some really unusual pictures of the excellent locations that we visited...the Lightroom tuition really opened our eyes to the myriad possibilities of developing images, thanks Martin!”
Megan and Michael Whittaker, May 2010
