Project Description

Iceland Photography Trip

Chase the Northern Lights across the land of fire and ice.
Capture the breathtaking natural beauty of Iceland’s southern coast, with glittering ice caves, frozen black sand beaches, and so much more.

Home to stunning natural beauty year-round, Iceland transforms into a breathtaking dreamscape each winter. With so much to see and so much to shoot, you’ll take incredible photos of a trip you’ll never forget.

Staying at comfortable lodging along the way, we will travel as a group across Iceland’s southern coast and back in a 9-passenger van. Together with our French- and English-speaking photography instructor, we will take in some of Iceland’s most magnificent sights, both above and below ground. If we are lucky, we will have the chance to see and shoot the Northern Lights.

February 2020
Trip Dates: From From Saturday, February 8th until Saturday, February 15th.


Iceland’s volcanic origins have produced some of Earth’s most stunning natural landscapes. Whether you are a novice or a professional, you will develop your skills as a photographer while practicing on glittering ice caves, monumental waterfalls, expansive glaciers, and even the streets of downtown Reykjavik. This tour has it all.

On this trip, you will expand your skills in taking beautiful photos even in challenging light conditions. Take magnificent photos from dawn to dusk: from the sun shining on sparkling “Diamond Beach” to the underground beauty of the ocean-blue ice caves, to aurora-hunting in the early darkness.

You will have the chance to master the skill of composition by practicing on beautiful landscapes with fascinating histories. Apply your creativity to the basalt sea stacks of Reynisdrangar, which legend says was formed when two trolls failed to land their ship on the black sand beaches and found it turned to stone by morning.

Not only will you go home with images to be proud of, but you will also be able to use your new skills to improve and expand your photographic technique when you return home. Apart from the technical aspect of learning your camera capabilities, you will learn how to turn an ordinary image into an extraordinary image by using your own creativity.
