I’m very happy to share the details of my next major photo tour — Iceland in the summer of 2014!
I’ll be working with Iceland-based Tim Vollmer, an experienced photographer and international tour leader, with whom I’ve worked previously. Tim is full of energy and humour, and I’ve found that it’s contagious. 🙂 I’m looking forward to the opportunity to return to Iceland and work again with Tim. We will lead a small group to a series of amazing locations in Western & Southern Iceland.
In my opinion, Iceland is a place that simply must be experienced first hand. This year, to plant a few creative seeds, we will explore Reykjavik for a day before we go on the road. We’ll use the opening day to experience aspects of Icelandic culture and art, to prepare for making story-telling photographs the remainder of the tour.
Once we hit the road, we will chase the light and spend some intensive time in the field. Our locations will be found in three major areas: the Snæfellsnes Peninsula, the highlands around Landmannalaugar, and the south coast including Skaftafell National Park. For more information, see the tour schedule (PDF). Feel free to contact either myself or Tim with any questions. To register, you can contact me and I’ll provide you all the details!
Read on for just a taste of the experience, what I’m able to put into words…
Iceland — A magical place of both grand and subtle beauty! A place of dramatic weather patterns, massive glaciers and intricate ice formations. A rugged land carved by ocean, rivers, and cascading falls, where living things inhabit an active terrain forged in volcanic fire and the forces of continental plates. A country whose engaging people in their cities, coastal towns, farms and fishing villages have a legendary heritage that’s long-entwined with the fierce wilderness. Iceland is not a place to merely “like”, it’s a land to fall in love with!
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 — Can you picture yourself creating photographs in a wild and beautiful land, under amazing summer light? Then join experienced international photographers and tour leaders Tim Vollmer and Royce Howland in June of 2014. Tim and Royce will lead a small group on a 12-day photography tour of exceptional locations around Western and Southern Iceland. As a member of this group, you’ll experience some of the best photography opportunities found anywhere. And Tim and Royce will be on hand full-time to discuss any aspect of photography with those who would like extra input.
What you can see — If you’re not already convinced, then take in the wonderful sights of Iceland through the online galleries of Tim Vollmer, and his wife & creative partner Markéta Kalvachová. They’ve been working in this wonderful country for years, and have portrayed its many facets in pictures.
