Earlier this summer I spent a week or so in Iceland leading a summer workshop there with fellow photographer Andrea Livieri and we had some spectacular conditions. We had a fantastic group of six people, none of whom had visited Iceland before and spent our first evening in Reykjavik getting to know everyone over dinner.
Iceland is one of those countries that must be near the top of most Photographer’s bucket list, it has such a diverse range of incredible landscapes that it’s just a pleasure to go there to shoot. On my first visit about 5 years ago I tried to get around as much of the country as possible, spending a couple of days in the highlands, in the southeast, in the north and in the westfjords. It was a great trip, but Iceland has incredible changeable weather and for large parts of the trip I never saw the sun or had any decent light.
