Trip Information

Group Size:  Maximum size of 10; minimum size of 7.

Start/End:  The trip begins in and concludes in Reykjavik, Iceland, from where you will return to Europe directly or North America via Iceland. We'll be so immersed in working with our models in the Icelandic countryside for our entire time as a group, that we have left no time to enjoy all the sights of Reykjavik city, so we encourage you to stay in Reykjavik for a couple days on your own, before and after the tour.  Neither will photographing landscapes around Iceland be a priority for us, so also consider adding time to you trip for traditional landscape photography.

  • 3 leaders - one principal photographic mentor and photography instructor, one location guide/driver/assistant photographic instructor, and one dedicated assistant for wardrobe/lighting/models

  • All ground transportation and guiding
