9 Day Photo Workshop Capturing Autumn in Iceland
Develop your skills as a photographer, build an incredible portfolio, and immerse yourself in the vivid fall colours of Iceland’s Autumn.
Led by award-winning local photo guides, this nine-day workshop is for amateur, aspiring and professional photographers alike, and promises to expose you to some of the world’s most spectacular nature, all under ethereal lighting conditions.
You will get to see many of Iceland’s most iconic and photographed sites over the duration of this tour, such as the Snæfellsnes Peninsula, the waterfalls of the South Coast, the Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon, and, with any luck, the awe-inspiring Northern Lights.
Your guides, however, are not just expert landscape and aurora photographers; they are experts on Iceland and will be able to guide you to its hidden places and little-known subjects, allowing you to take fascinating, unique images far from the crowds. At each destination, they will be on hand, ensuring that you are making the most of the lighting and subjects available.
This workshop is made as easy as possible for you. Your transfer to and from the airport is included in the price, as is all transportation throughout the trip and all your accommodation. All you will have to focus on is enjoying the unbelievable sights of Iceland in Autumn, and figuring out how to best capture your compositions.
Do not miss the opportunity to photograph this beautiful island nation wrapped in its fall colours. Check availability by choosing a date.

We highly recommend that you get a travel and medical insurance. Your own domestic medical insurance and private health scheme will not cover you whilst you are overseas.
The tour is always dependent on weather, as the Icelandic weather can indeed be highly unpredictable. Likewise, visits to ice caves are dependent on favorable conditions, and indeed the ice caves themselves are not permanent. When it comes to the Northern Lights, while they are most likely to be seen between September and April, there is no guarantee that they will appear on a given day.

Being out in nature with a camera and a tripod can be like a form of meditation – a soothing, peaceful experience that has the potential to lift you out of this world.
For Brynjar Ágústsson, a native Icelandic professional landscape photographer, there is simply nothing more satisfying. A former member of the Rimmugýgur Icelandic Viking Community from Hafnarfjördur, Brynjar is acquainted with even the most hidden corners of Iceland and knows every magical location like the back of his hand.
This former parachute jumper, windsurfer and mountain guide has amassed a wealth of experience from guiding countless photography tours, finding himself at his absolute best when outdoors in the wilderness with a camera in hand.
Well-versed in Lightroom and Photoshop, Brynjar’s work has been featured in many magazines, commercials and exhibitions around the world. He has a deep-rooted interest in keeping abreast with the ongoing technological and ideological advancements in photography, as well as a keen eye for composition and light.
With this Viking at the helm, you will be taken to the most epic arctic landscapes on an adventure to remember for a lifetime. Brynjar’s passion for Icelandic nature is quickly mirrored by all those who join him during every journey. Says the man himself, “In our photo tours, you are in the right place at the right time when the beauty of nature’s show begins.”
