Making the Ordinary Extraordinary

       Iceland Photography Tour

Bob Stavers and Mark Gardner

September 2017


Tectonic forces are constantly shaping Iceland - making its raw, stark landscape unique in the world. This “Land of Ice and Fire” is indeed a photographer’s dream with its geyser’s, waterfalls, horses, puffins, mountain vistas, glaciers and icebergs (click on an image to see it full sized).

Mark Gardner, a long-time professional photographer, and I will be leading a photographic tour of Iceland’s most iconic and beautiful locations in early September, 2017.  The tour will focus on photography in the field with hands on assistance in composition and the technical aspects of shooting, as well as insights and advice for getting the best shots before we get to each location.  We will also include a number of evening sessions featuring critiques of your images from the day's shooting.


The price of the tour has not been finalized but will be approximately $5,800 per person (double occupancy) for 10 days and 9 nights.  The tour price will include all in country transportation, lodging  and meals (including snacks but not alcohol). 


We welcome any skill level although participants should have a working knowledge of their equipment.  We will be doing some limited hiking on uneven trails and some of the 4WD roads are rough and uneven.


While this is a photography tour, spouses or partners are welcome although they should know we are focusing on photography and we may be staying out late and getting up early.  We are unable to offer any discounts for a spouse or partner. 


The locations we will be visiting will include: Reykjavík, Barnafoss Waterfalls, Geysir, Gullfoss Waterfall, Seljalandsfoss, Landmannalaugar, Reynisfjara Beach, Vik, Jokulsarlon (the Ice Lagoon), and Myrdalsjokull Glacier. A prize will be awarded to the first person to properly pronounce the locations.  September begins the best time to see Aurora Borealis, so we may also be able to photograph them.


The tour will be limited to 8 participants so as to make it as informal and comfortable as possible.
