Iceland’s topography of volcanic lava fields, mountains, glaciers, waterfalls, and black-sand beaches makes it a photographer’s dream and nightmare all in one. It is so incredible to the point where there is too much to photograph, and if you are not disciplined you will stop every five minutes to take a picture.
I recently spent six nights exploring and photographing Iceland with my photography workshop partner, Vincent Croos. We had a very basic plan that allowed for a lot of flexibility. We took a lot of images, met a lot of interesting people, and had an amazing time in the land of the midnight sun.
Should you be considering a photography trip to Iceland during the summer, here are my tips for a successful trip.
