Nikon School Adventures: Iceland Midnight Sun


Join Nikon School on a photographic adventure of a lifetime, photographing the stunning landscapes of Iceland. This workshop will be led by Neil Freeman and a local Icelandic Guide. Iceland is without doubt one of the most spectacular and dramatic photographic destinations, a landscape which has been sculpted by the extremes of nature; earthquakes, volcanoes and glaciers and as a result is a landscape photographer’s paradise. This workshop aims to make the most of the amazing light and long days that are available during the summer in Iceland. Our plan (weather permitting) will be circumnavigate the entire island, giving you the opportunity to photograph the iconic Iceland landscapes that are inaccessible during the winter. We will also visit some of the more secret and lesser known locations.

Neil is very experienced in leading photography workshops in Iceland and between Neil and our guide, they have extensive knowledge great locations to photograph in Iceland. Neil can show you the best setups for your camera, lenses, filters and tripod to ensure that you can come away from this workshop with some amazing images.
