 Capture Iceland's stunning landscapes in a photography workshop led by Andi, while immersing yourself in the island's nature and refining your photography skills!


Experience the country together with a group of 10 like-minded explorers and photographers, with the same mission to capture the natural
beauty of Iceland.
A peek of what you will experience throughout your Iceland adventure.
Our trip is open for participants of all ages and gender with a basic to advanced knowledge of photography, that are adventurers at heart. Join today before spots run out. 

Meet your team:

Not a regular group adventure

While our other adventures are focused primarily on experiences, this is photography focused adventure with multiple photography workshops and extra time to practice — making some of the experiences optional to join, to give more time to focus on whichever you want to focus on that day: improving your photography, or to get out in the field to adventure through Iceland on Kayak, boats, or 4x4.

What will you experience?

Join a photography workshop in Iceland, a country known for its picture-perfect landscapes. Capture the beauty of this picturesque place and hone your skills with the guidance of talented photographers. This trip is perfect for those who have a basic knowledge of photography and would like to take their skills to the next level. 

Here's what this photo adventure & workshop will bring you:

Chasing the Lava: if conditions permit, we'll try to get the best scenes of the power of mother earth at work! With constant volcanic activity in Iceland, there are high chances our group will be witnesses of a spectacle!


See and photograph the green Northern Lights, one of the most amazing sights, with the best time of the year to see them being September - during this trip! Although there is never a 100% chance to see the northern lights as they are an act of nature, these are the best chances to see them. 

Join us for an unforgettable road trip around Iceland's famous ring road, where you'll witness incredible waterfalls, magical glaciers, fascinating wildlife, and soothing hot springs. Prepare to be amazed at every turn as you explore one of the most beautiful routes in the world.



- Rules of light and composition: How I frame my images according to light, the tools & techniques I use. (Camera & Mobile)

- Equipment and manual camera settings run down: my favorites for travel

- Night photography / Astro photography: lear how to create images of the sky with any lens, camera, or mobile. (Camera & Mobile)

- Lightroom editing workshop: how to make the most out of your photos 

Our main focus for this workshop is to get you ready to be a professional photographer with all the knowledge to make your visions reality - so, there is free time outside of the workshops where you can ask questions and ask us for guidance as you practice. 

For those that feel that their photography skills are ready to be taken into cold water (literally and figuratively!) we have a range of activities that you can join that are optional:


Kayak in Jokarlosun Glacier Lagoon through a world of icebergs. It's a thrilling adventure that will leave you speechless, surrounded by stunning frozen sculptures and the serenity of nature. 

Visit the famous Blue Lagoon and create some artistic content with the pastel blue.

For example whale-watching tour in northern Iceland. Get up close and personal with these majestic creatures as they gracefully swim through the pristine waters, creating unforgettable memories.

And for those who feel ready: Why not both?! Practice AND adventure at the same time.

Some of our other scheduled and included excursions include...

Witnessing a mesmerizing sunrise at Kirkjufell Mountains in the west. Another incredible activity that we’ll be taking part of to hone in your photography skills.


Step onto the mysterious black sand diamonds beach in southern Iceland. Be amazed by the unique beauty of the glistening black sands, like precious jewels scattered along the shore. Explore this intriguing place and uncover its secrets.
