Photo Tour
Magical Iceland
27 September- 6 Oktober (10 days)

About the places to visit: 

Iceland is an ideal destination for photographers, as it is wild, sparsely populated, with landscapes as beautiful as exceptional, a place where everything seems possible. On this trip we will visit not only the most emblematic places of the island but we will visit some lesser-known but equally photogenic locations. Volcanic beaches with large waves in "black and white", pointed rocks in the sea, basaltic columns, large waterfalls and geysers, mountains whose glaciers are among the largest in Europe, icebergs and blocks of ice on black volcanic beaches are some of the ingredients of this trip.
Apart from contemplating and photographing its incredible landscapes, we can have a pleasant (sought after) encounter with the Northern Lights. In this new edition we not only visit the most emblematic locations of the southern part of the Island buy also visit a part of the west, where we have possibilities to find beautiful autumn colors. In short, a place that offers great photographic opportunities, both to know and enjoy new places and to expand our photographic portfolio in a magical land where everything seems possible.
The trip includes transportation, photographic guide and driver, accommodation in hotels with private bathroom and full board (breakfast, picnic and dinner).The duration of the trip is 10 days, in this way we will have a wide travel margin in case of bad weather and the possibility of returning to some locations.

About the workshops:
The trips and workshops are organized by teachers with proven experience in landscape and night photography and are aimed at a wide audience; from those who are interested in knowing interesting places, the amateur photographer with a desire to learn or profile his/her knowledge to the professional, interested in expanding her/his photographic portfolio.
The workshops seek to familiarize participants with the different theoretical and practical aspects of landscape and night photography and prepare them for the different situations and possibilities on the locations. The photographic sessions are in that line focused on learning and applying the concepts previously treated in the theoretical workshops. The photo sessions also allow the participants to know spectacular places from the natural, cultural and landscape point of view, and spend a pleasant stay in them, accompanied by expert photographers with good knowledge of the area who will be at the full disposal of the attendees to answer any questions and facilitate appropriate advice.
The workshop or journey also includes viewings of the pictures taken by the students, in which the technical and aesthetic aspects of the images are commented with advice on how to improve in both aspects. Although it is not required, it is recommended to participate with basic knowledge of photography to get more out of the trip.
