Iceland in Winter with John Pedersen

January 16, 2023 - January 20, 2023


Join me for an incredible winter adventure in Iceland. Along with my local partner, we will take you on a journey unlike any other, visiting this amazing country in one of the most beautiful, and dramatic times of year, winter! Why winter? It’s the best time to view the aurora, the waterfalls are encrusted with ice, the landscape is beautiful and the skies are filled with drama, not to mention there are far fewer people visiting the country. This is the best time of year to visit this beautiful country. The sun stays at a low angle all day providing incredible soft light for photography all day long!

During this workshop we will explore and photograph the south coast all the way to the south east area of Iceland. On our journey you will experience rough yet beautiful coastlines, Europe´s largest glacier, world famous glacier lagoons with floating majestic icebergs, epic and iconic waterfalls in all shapes and sizes, astonishing mountains and mountain peaks, pitch black volcanic beaches with dramatic sea stacks, the famed Jokulsarlon Ice Lagoon and last but not least the breathtaking colorful glacier ice caves! During the workshop you will be transported via 4×4 passenger van and all logistics and arrangements will be taken care of for you. All you have to do is show up and be ready to photograph.

The workshop will be co-led with myself and one of the best photographers and guides in Iceland. He has years of experience photographing the landscape and leading groups to popular and hidden locations on the island. With a small workshop size (5-6 people) and two instructors providing guidance and instruction, you will have virtually unlimited time with a seasoned professional to help you achieve your creative vision through your photographs.

The workshop will begin and end in the capital city of Reykjavik. In between we will stay in various locations along the South Coast, including Vik and location further east in order to take advantage of proximity to the most photogenic areas of this amazing landscape. If you want to arrive early or stay late to explore the area around Reykjavik, that is highly recommended. Our workshop will have an informal meet and greet in our hotel on the Sunday night before the official start and then we will plan on an early departure from Reykjavik the next day and begin our adventure.

Lodging during the workshop, ground transportation and most meals are included in the workshop price. Lodging, meals and incidentals before or after the workshop is the responsibility of the attendees. Airfare is not included. More information about the workshop along with gear recommendations will be sent you after registration. If you have any questions about the workshop, please do not hesitate to contact me directly.
