"Exploring Iceland"

Welcome to Iceland Prakash & Akhter on a highly exclusive autumn photo trip of the stunning countryside of Iceland.

Iceland in the early fall is a very special time. The Moss and grasses are vibrant green, the days are fairly normal in length & darkness at night started to come in & we start to have the chance for Aurora Borealis. Iceland is known for its beautiful Waterfalls, Jagged mountain peaks, infinite Ocean, Glaciers, Icebergs of all sizes, beautiful Churches, Ancient ruins & more. It's a paradise for photographers imagine photographing all these locations during golden   light, with dancing Northern Lights during the nights. It's so satisfying all your worries melt away as you escape to capture the exquisite beauty before you at every turn.

This trip will be with a small group, we’re limiting the workshop to only Nine participants. This means there will be plenty of time with Prakash & Akhter as they guides you around some of the most photogenic places on the Earth. In this trip we are going to cover full Iceland, we’ll photograph places like the Glacier Lagoon, Ice Beach, various waterfalls, Churches & the stunning black sand beaches of Vik.

Like our last year trip, the Weather will play a big role in our plans and locations, we have to go where we have the best shot of getting good light and photos. This includes waking up middle at night for aurora, or no sleep to catch it :) We want everyone to shoot their heart out & create as many memorable pictures possible & for the same reason we might have to reshuffle the itinerary to the weather Iceland Gives us.
