Adventure in Iceland 2018, with Erin Babnik, Alexandre Deschaumes, and Xavier Jamonet (filled, waitlist available)
September 1, 2018 - September 10, 2018$6495
The itinerary of this unique trip will take us to a variety of magnificent highland locations in Iceland, far away from the crowded hotspots. We have assembled a team of three acclaimed professional photographic artists to be your creative coaches and location guides, and in addition have secured two native Icelandic guides to accompany us through our adventure. This trip comes complete with eleven nights of accommodation, full board, airport transfer, and transportation between locations. We will spend eight of our nights in beautifully situated highland huts that will allow us to maximize our time in the most majestic, remote areas of Iceland while still enjoying the comfort of indoor bunks. The other three nights we will stay in single-occupancy hotel rooms. This will be a rare opportunity to get off of the ring road and into the highlands to photograph some of the most spectacular, surreal landscapes anywhere in the world.
Participants will have the benefit of a small group and three instructors, allowing you to get all of the help that you need with creative mentoring, field technique, and post-processing. On the first day of the workshop we will hold an introductory seminar on composition and creativity. We will also have a substantial post-processing session in the comfort of a hotel conference room on the final full day of the workshop.
This trip is designed for people with a spirit of adventure who want to experience and photograph some of the more remote locations of Iceland with instructors who place a high value on creative expression. The focus is on helping you to create outstanding photos that speak to your own experiences and interests. Whether you are just getting started in photography or are already a seasoned pro, we’ll put you in the right place at the right time and will provide you with whatever guidance you require to get unique shots of Iceland for your portfolio. Because we have a total of five guides, there will be options for doing some hiking during the workshop in order to reach even more remote destinations, but these excursions are optional. For the optional hiking excursions, a moderate level of physical fitness is necessary, but otherwise a minimal level of fitness is required.
