Markéta and I will lead a small group to a series of amazing locations in western & southern Iceland. To find out if this event might be for you, read on.

Iceland — a magical place of both grand and subtle beauty! A place of dramatic weather patterns, massive glaciers and intricate ice formations. A land where the rugged terrain is carved by ocean, rivers, and cascading falls, and living things inhabit geology forged in volcanic fire and the very forces of continental plates. A country whose engaging people in their coastal towns, farms and fishing villages have a legendary heritage that’s long-entwined with the fiercely wild land.
You — a passionate photographer looking for a distinctive travel photography experience, and eager to spend a social & field-intensive time with a group of like-minded individuals. You may be an advanced photographer looking for experienced guiding to get you directly to fantastic locations. Or you may know the basics of exposure and how to use your camera equipment, but have goals to improve your mastery of the craft. Either way, you’re keen to make great photographs that tell stories. And to exercise your creative eye in a destination where night is only a memory, and reality merges with imagination.
Iceland + you — does this sound like a perfect match? Then join experienced international photographers and tour leaders Markéta Kalvachová and Royce Howland in the Summer of 2013. Markéta and Royce will lead a small group on a 10-day photography tour of exceptional locations around Western and Southern Iceland, from the Snæfellsnes peninsula to Skaftafell National Park and points between. As a member of this group, you’ll experience some of the best photography opportunities found anywhere. And Markéta and Royce will be on hand on to discuss any aspect of photography with those who would like extra input.
