Discovery is the Path to Creative Photography

Categorized as Articles

Does your inner photographer crave more creativity?

Maybe you have access to a woodland, beach or city skyline near you.  You have probably approached your local photography hot-spot in different weather, different times of the day and in all seasons just for the subtle differences in your photos.  Our creative minds crave novelty.  Something new or a different challenge can help our minds to see the world differently and develop your creative brain.

The diverse landscapes combined with the dramatic weather of Iceland is a sure way to raise your creative game.  Creative photographers challenge their skills and raise the bar each time they develop camera skills to a new height.  Because of such unique Nature, a trip to Iceland can put you in a different league altogether.  Although you are unlikely to  excel in the new league without a very long trip or with the help of an experienced photo guide. Our experienced photo guides take all the driving,  background research and guessing out of your trip and deliver you to the right places at the right time.  In most cases you will be enjoying quality time at great locations with a photo guide who knows all the angles and is happy to help and instruct.

Make it happen

If you are still reading, this could be a sign that your inner photographer is craving a trip to Iceland.  So what are your options?

  1. Give up, it’s not going to happen – I will stick with local photo shoots and slowly develop my camera skills.
  2. Self drive – allow plenty of time to scout locations to get the best out of your trip.  It can take a full day + hotel fees, just to scout a small part of Iceland for hidden gems. Ice road experience is essential in the Winter and you need to know ahead of time if a road is likely to close or dangerous weather is approaching.
  3. Join one of our small group workshops for unbeatable prices.  For a fraction more than a self-drive, you will enjoy an intensive 5 days of guided photography in the most beautiful parts of Iceland.
  4. For a serious investment in your photography our private tours could be just the ticket. We offer a bespoke service or we can suggest an itinerary to suit your interests.  Private tours are expensive for solo travellers, but are great value for a group of 4 and everyone is welcome.
