This workshop was one if the finest and best organized that I have participated in. A good workshop guides it’s participants to the subjects and to the light, makes useful suggestions based on the leader’s experiences, and stretches the participants to become better than when they started—and our guides did a superb job of all of that. The accommodations were excellent, we were VERY well fed, and we were guided to a wide variety of subjects and light. The REAL mark of a good workshop leader is how he handles changing conditions—and in a most rare situation, we were faced with the forecast of a winter hurricane, in Iceland, the likes of which had not been seen since the “Perfect Storm” in 1991. Our guides handled the situation masterfully, maintaining our safety and comfort as paramount, while still affording us some interesting shooting opportunities to round out a most excellent workshop.
I want to thank our workshop leaders for organizing such a inspiring, fun and educational workshop . The workshop was very well organized, the itinerary was well thought out that gave us great photographic opportunities. Our guides provided excellent leadership, from knowing best times and locations to giving great advice on composition and camera settings to capture the mood. It was a wonderful experience that truly exceeded my expectations! I highly recommend these guys to anyone considering a future photography workshop or tour.
I am so glad that I have joined the Oct Photography Workshop in Iceland. The two instructors have provided sufficient guidance to each of us and care about the photos that we are taking. Their field advice was very useful, helped me improve the photos in particular the way of compositions. The workshop was well organized and the places we went for shooting are spectacular. This workshop not just offered me a great trip to explore the beautiful Iceland, it was also a good learning opportunity in the path of photography. The whole journey was filled with happiness and satisfaction, we bought back with nice photos and unforgettable experience.
Before departure from HK, I was well informed already of what to bring and what to prepare. Indeed, it proved to be useful. Apart from the weather, all schedules were well controlled and monitored. Though I’m not the oldest, I could see all the seniors had sufficient rest, and prepared themselves perfectly for everyday’ expeditions. Food and accommodation were good. Person to person guidance of photo taking, to ensure that I had some good pics to shock my friends. The 2 sessions of lectures by the guides were most informative, something that I could be proud of to bring home. All and all, I would not hesitate to recommend these photo workshops to anyone, if you want to shoot good pics and learn photography. Thank you again.
