Iceland Photography Tours

This trip includes everything except your flights and food. Once you arrive, I’ll look after you, airport transfers, transport during the tour, accommodation, guiding, and all tuition.

This Iceland Photography Tour has been planned with the photographer right in the center, we’ll go where the light is at it’s best or getting you to where you’ll have clear skies to watch and photograph the Aurora Borealis. Although we are working from a fixed itinerary, do not despair, it won’t be a case of getting 15 minutes to photograph each location, we’ll have plenty of time to explore the areas and if we’re driving down the road and you spot something you like, if safe to do so, I will stop!

Each day we will be on location before sunrise and shooting all day until after sunset.

As with all my Iceland Photography Tours & Workshops I like to keep the numbers small, and this photo tour is limited to only five people! This allows me to spend more one on one time with you, helping you with any questions you may have.

The South Coast & Snæfellsnes / North tour we will use a 9-seater minibus or a similar vehicle. The Highlands camping adventure, on the other hand, will involve a Land Rover Defender for transportation.

From my experience of running over 30 photography tours, having a fixed daily itinerary is limiting your chances of going home with the best possible images.

I work with the weather as much as possible and visit locations based on the best forecasted weather conditions. This ensures that I’m putting you in the right place at the right time.

Each morning will be on location 1 hour or so before sunrise, and each sunset we’ll be there until 1 hour after sunset.

The tour will start and end at Keflavik, Iceland (KEF). When looking at flights, please arrive no later than midday on arrival day. If you need to travel the day before, please let me know and I can collect you from your accommodation in the Reykjavik area.

Please note the itinerary below is a sample for the Iceland South Coast Photography Tour, it will be adjusted for the Highlands & Snæfellsnes & North Tour.

Day 1 – Arrival Day

You will fly to Keflavik (KEF) airport. I will collect everyone from the airport in our nine seater minibus, timings will be arranged in our private WhatsApp group leading up to the tour. We’ll start making our way to our first accommodation in the Vik area with a stop on the way at the supermarket to gather some groceries for a few days. Once we’ve all settled in, we’ll run over the plan for the week and if time allows we’ll squeeze in a sunset shoot or if clear skies allow we’ll head out on a thrilling aurora chase.

Day 2 to 3 – Vik Adventures

This is where the real adventure begins.

Over the next few days in the Vik area we will be photographing at every opportunity we can get. We’ll be getting up early every morning (regardless of weather) to be on location 1 hour before sunrise, after each sunrise shoot we’ll head for breakfast before heading to our next location.

Each sunset location, we’ll be there roughly 2 hours before so that we can each scope out our sunset composition.

Day 4 to 5 – Jökulsárlón/Höfn Exploration

Our journey then pivots to the enchanting Jökulsárlón/Höfn area. We’ll be focusing on Diamond Beach, Vestrahorn & Eystrahorn! Maintaining our dedication to capturing the best shots, the early mornings and pre-sunset hours will remain our prime focus, with each locale promising unique photographic treasures.

Again, if clear skies allow, we’ll be out chasing the Aurora again.

Day 6 – Vik Return & Keflavík Transition

As the day concludes, we’ll head to our final accommodation in the Keflavík area to be positioned optimally for those with early departures the next day. We’ll finish off with a sunset shoot at Reykjanestá .

As most people will have early flights the next morning, aurora chasing on this night will be optional.

Day 7 – Departure Day

Goodbyes are forever, I’ll be saying see you later as I hope you’ll join me on another adventure. We’ll head to the airport where everyone can catch their flights home.

Your Guide

Photographer, Light Chaser, Aurora Guide, Web Dev, Biker, Daddy and I’ve got a very understanding girlfriend in no particular order.

What you’ll learn

On this Iceland Photography Tour I’m at your complete disposal to help and teach you everything I know about photography.

Here are a few of the key skills that I’ll be covering:

Camera Settings: It starts with the basics. RAW, Aperture, Shutter Speed and ISO. Learn how and when to use the various modes on your camera to get the shot you want.

CompositionComposition is everything in landscape photography. Learn how to compose a landscape photograph.

Long Exposures: Learn how to use long exposures so you can create dramatic and interesting photographs.

Histogram: Learn how to read your histogram so that you’re exposing correctly and capturing maximum data with no clipping.

Low Light: Learn how to photograph the night sky and if luck is on our side, we’ll also shoot the Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis).

What’s included?

  • Airport Transfers
  • Transport throughout tour
  • Accommodation (Twin Share Room)
  • Any entrance fees.
  • Photographic guidance if required
  • Flights/Travel to/from Keflavik, Iceland
  • Breakfast/Lunch/Dinner and alcohol or snacks.

Good to Know

Flights November – Fly to Keflavik (KEF) airport. Most major European airports will have direct flights to Iceland.

Accommodation: Due to constraints in availability and the shift of many houses to dorm-style accommodation, we’ll be transitioning to multiple stay locations. This actually works in our favour as we’ll be able to stay closer to locations and maximise shooting time and reduce driving time! On the final night, we’ll be staying in twin rooms in the Keflavík area, optimally located for those with early morning departures.

Self Catering / Meals – All my tours are self catering. We will visit the supermarket (Bonus) on the day we arrive and gather what’s needed for a few days so that we can bring packed lunches with us each day. We will revisit the supermarket a couple of times throughout the trip too. There will be opportunities throughout the trip to visit cafes and the odd restaurant if we have time. But primarily, we will be eating as we go.

Hiking – Many of the locations are easy access from the car. You must be able to walk on uneven, sometimes steep and slippery ground.

Spending Money – I average between £200-300 for the week. Card is accepted everywhere, cash isn’t needed.

UK Mobile Network – If coming from the UK, your data roaming will work and come out of your data back home.
