Iceland Winter Photography Workshop
Join us for 8 days for our Iceland photography workshop,
the trip of a lifetime.
We explore Iceland from the amazing south coast to the spectacular Eastern Fjords in our small group Iceland photography workshop!
We make sure you are shooting in the right place, at the right time, in the best light.
In this 8-day Iceland winter photography workshop, we work closely with you on your photography skills as we travel the south coast and Eastern fjord areas of Iceland. In the evenings, we will provide image critique and Lightroom editing coaching when we are not out capturing the landscape.
You’ll learn how to get that amazing landscape image from the perfect locations when the light is optimal! There’s nothing like that feeling of knowing you’ve got that trophy shot!
Only 6 adventurous photographers will be joining us on this trip.
A small group size ensures you will receive generous personal photographic coaching in the field from 3 full time working pros, providing an intimate outdoor photography workshop experience.
This area of Iceland is a magical place. You will be photographing high mountains, deep fjords, waterfalls and sea cliffs. Because of distance from Reykjavik, the East Fjords are less traveled than most areas in Iceland, which is always a plus for photographers!
This is our 6th year running small group Iceland
We are the Iceland Photography Workshop Experts!
We will have the chance each evening to view the Aurora Borealis.
Sometimes, we see the Northern Lights every night, sometimes we don’t see it at all! It’s all up to the weather and Mother Nature!

We will be bringing you to outstanding rural locations in Iceland while exploring photographic waterscapes and coastal features during our Iceland photography workshop. As our small group travels from Reykjavik to the South Coast to the Eastern Fjords, we will experience stunning sea stacks, breathtaking cliffs, incredible fjords, glaciers, and small to medium-sized villages. You will be hiking on uneven dirt and icy snowy trails in some locations, sometimes walking 1 to 2 miles at a time. Total daily hiking could be 4-5 miles with all of the different photo stops.
Icelandic horses offer amazing photographic opportunities and are a breed apart. Noted for their small stature and beautiful coats, they roam the vibrant landscape. We take advantage of the best roadside opportunities as they arise.
We will be traveling as a small group (Maximum 6 people), allowing for a comfortable schedule filling our days with rewarding photography opportunities all around the region.
You will be escorted by three experienced landscape photography professionals, Mark and Holly Jansen and their Icelandic photography instructor and counterpart.
Arrive in Reykjavik and we will assemble in the evening for our pre-workshop meet and great and orientation for the upcoming trip. Dinner is on your own this evening.
South Coast Iceland
The South Coast is different from any place in Iceland, old volcanic fields, jagged cliffs along the coastline and black sand beaches make it a unique location. We will be exploring this area with its sparkling waterfalls, dramatic volcanic peaks, sheer sea cliffs, and sweeping black beaches which make up this diverse and fascinating landscape. The area is crowned by the glistening ice cap Vatnajökull.
Some of the highlights include the Skógafoss and Seljalandsfoss waterfalls.
Continuing on the South Coast
As we continue down the South Coast of Iceland, we have the opportunity to photograph the famous “Diamond Beach” and Jokulsarlon. This area is famous for the icebergs that calf off the glacier and float into the Glacier Lagoon. Once these icebergs float out of the lagoon into the ocean, many are washed up onto the black sand beach creating numerous photo opportunities.
We will be traveling through the South east coast of Iceland, home to old farmlands rich in history. Basalt columns, strange sea stacks and the small villages will be our photographic subjects. We will be visiting wild and scenic Reynisfjara beach and the specatular views of Eagle Rock.
We will also be spending a portion of the day exploring the Vatnajokull glacier. Ever changing and magnificent, this is a location you won’t soon forget.
