Iceland photography workshop

Iceland photoworkshop – Join us on a magnificent photo adventure. Icelands beautiful scenery and stunning views give you a photo experience that you will remember for life…

Iceland is often associated with geysers, volcanoes and hot springs. We associate the Iceland with something more – unique photo opportunities & we want to give you a photo-workshop beyond the usual.

Fantastic photo-workshop in Iceland with amazing and varied natural landscapes. The trip was well-organized and intensive in a positive way! Thanks to this and constructive feedback from the photographers Patrik and Ella, the circumstances for great images was at it´s optimum! Both teachers and the group of photographers were supernice. The workshop was both instructive and unforgettable!

In a small group we explore some of Iceland’s most beautiful places. You can count on magic landscapes, unforgettable sunrises and sunsets, great food, hiking and swimming in natural hot springs. The landscape will be playfully varied, with a mix of plain land, mountain ranges, waterfalls and coastlines. In this enchanting landscape, movies like Tomb Raider, James Bond and Batman have been done here.

We stay in hotels or cabins where we feast on local food. Photoshooting starts early in the morning before the sun rises and transports us during the day when the light is not as good for photography. When the evening comes we are ready with new motives for you to capture. When we have the time we jointly review the pictures and provide creative feedback. Tips on how to improve images or workflow for you to practice the next day.

During the trip we inspire and teach new photo techniques. After the trip you will have magnificent images and have experienced an unforgettable adventure. I hope that you will join our workshop in Iceland.

Fantastik resa till Island. Oerhört kul hade vi. Stort tack till Patrik & Ella som visade oss alla fantastiska fotoplatser. Jag rekommenderar verkligen denna fotoresa med Mästerfoto.

Micke W.

Fotoresan till Island var helt magiskt. Rekommenderas. Välorganiserad. Patrik rattade bilen tryggt och säkert runt till olika fotoplatser och där gav han oss tillsammans med hans kollega Ella tips och goda råd kring fotograferandet.

Yvonne W.

Fantastisk fotoresa på Island med häpnadsväckande och varierande naturlandskap. Resan var välarrangerad och intensiv på ett positivt sätt! Tack vare detta och konstruktiv feedback från fotograferna Patrik och Ella blev förutsättningarna för att fotografera optimala! Både fotografer och hela resegruppen var hemskt trevliga. Fotoresan var både lärorik och oförglömlig!

Silvia L.

Kan varmt rekommendera en resa till Magiska Island med Mästerfoto. Patrik & Ella såg till att upplevelserna blev sååå mycket mer än om jag hade åkt på egen hand. Platserna vi fick utforska var valda med omsorg. Patrik & Ella är Super Trevliga, kunniga & diplomatiska reseledare. Tusen Tack för Veckan.
