Introduction

Ready to join an Iceland Photo Tour? Ready for the adventure of a lifetime? Join me this October in Iceland as we go on the hunt for the beautiful autumnal colors on Iceland’s rugged landscape and in search of the majestic Northern Lights.

This 7 night Iceland Photography Tour will start off on the Snaefellsness Peninsula where we’ll be spending the next 2 nights, we’ll then venture towards the South Coast for a further 2 nights, and then move further north & east up as far as Vestrahorn for another 2 nights. We’ll be visiting a few of the country’s most beautiful & iconic locations, to name but a few but not limited to; Kirkjufell, Kirkjufellsfoss, L贸ndrangar sea cliffs, Seljalandsfoss, Skogafoss, Reynisdranger Sea Stacks, Jokulsarlon’s Glacier Lagoon & Diamond Beach and the almighty, Vestrahorn Mountain. At night, we’ll be chasing those majestic northern lights.

This Iceland Photography Tour has been planned with the photographer right in the center, we鈥檒l go where the light is at it鈥檚 best or getting you to where we鈥檒l have clear skies to watch and photography the Aurora Borealis. Although we are working from a fixed itinerary, do not despair, it won’t be a case of getting 15 minutes to photograph each location, we’ll have plenty of time to explore the areas and if we’re driving down the road and you spot something you like, then we can and will stop!

As with all my Iceland Photo Tour & Workshops I like to keep the numbers small, and this photo tour is limited to only four people! This allows me to spend more one on one time with you, helping you with any questions you may have.

Our transport for the week will be in a 4×4 Toyota Landcruiser Super Jeep 馃槑

Who is this Workshop & Photography Tour for?

This workshop is aimed at photographers who want to improve and take their landscape photography to the next level. You will learn how I plan my sunrise & sunset shoots, how to focus for maximum DOF, you’ll learn more about composition, rule of thirds, leading lines, how & when to use filters, long exposure photography. During the night you will learn how to focus in the darkness, how to shoot really long exposures, how to create star trails and how to shoot the majestic northern lights!

This is not a sight seeing tour or a beginner’s photography course where you learn the basics of Photography such as aperture, shutter speed and ISO. You MUST already understand the exposure triangle, how it works and how each of the settings affect each other. This is not a luxury holiday where we spend time relaxing by the pool and topping up our tan.

This is a photography workshop intended for like minded people who share a passion for shooting landscapes, both the classic spots but also the not so classic spots. We’ll spend a week living together, eating together, shooting together, sharing our stories, sharing our passion for photography. This will be an intense trip, we’ll be shooting when the light is at it’s best and that’s during sunrise & sunset, we’ll be shooting in all conditions from rain, hail and snow to those rare blue skies. We’ll sleep when we can, when the light is at it’s worst.

I can guarantee you by the end of the week, you’ll be going home with new friends, great images but you’ll also be ready for a good sleep 馃槈

I may have been born in Ireland, but Iceland is where my heart is. 聽I鈥檝e been travelling to and photographing Iceland now since July 2015 and since then I鈥檝e been 8/9 times and I truly can鈥檛 get enough. From the waterfalls on the South Coast, to the mountains in West to the famous J枚kuls谩rl贸n glacial lagoon with its icebergs to the many black sand beaches 鈥 it really is a photographers paradise. 聽I鈥檝e clocked up thousands of miles and many many hours driving on the Icelandic 鈥渞oads鈥 from the south's paved roads, to the east's gravel roads, to the rocky highland roads. 聽Elsewhere in Finland & Norway, I鈥檝e over 3 months of driving experience on snow & ice, in blizzards and in complete whiteout conditions. 聽Not only am I an experienced photographer and driver, but I鈥檝e also worked professionally as a Northern Lights Tour Guide 300 miles North of the Arctic Circle in Finland. 聽When it comes to chasing the Northern Lights with me, I鈥檝e got a 100% success rate, I've got them exactly where they needed to be and that was with clear skies, or into position waiting for them to appear.

Still not convinced? Here鈥檚 what past attendees have to say.

  • My husband and I recently spent 7 days with Tyler in Iceland on a photography tour. What an amazing experience!! Not only did we manage to capture the northern lights but Tyler made sure that we visited and experienced some of the best photography sites the Iceland south coast has to offer. We encountered some harsh weather which led to roads being closed but Tyler was innovative in his approach to make sure that we then captured sites closed to where we lived keeping our safety as a primary concern. He was on hand to offer advice on camera settings but he was never intrusive to our own style and that was really appreciated. We will definitely tour with him again either in Ireland or Iceland. He is a cool guy and tour guide!

  • What can I say! This was my 4th trip to Iceland. Decided to join Tylers Photography Tour this time in an effort to improve my landscape photography and Tyler didn't disappoint. Tyler spent time with each one of us and made sure that we were in the best locations at the best times and we had the added bonus of seeing Puffins, Whales and the Northern Lights. Would highly recommend one of his tours. Thanks Tyler

  • I recently returned from a 7 day photographic tour of Iceland, expertly led by Tyler. He brought us to some amazing sights along Iceland's southern coast. With Tyler providing much-appreciated photographic guidance throughout - particularly around composition, using filters, metering & post-processing. During our visit, we had some challenging weather conditions but Tyler's knowledge of the area allowed him to adapt our itinerary and help ensure that we made of the most of our time on the island. I look forward to taking part in future trips/workshops with Tyler.

  • Just back from the the Iceland workshop taken by Tyler. i must say i have never experienced anything like it. From the time we met Tyler at the airport to the end of the 5 day/4 night stay in Iceland everything was planned to perfection ie tyler hired a mini bus with plenty of room for everybody.We stayed in Log Cabins which had everything from warm showers to comfortable beds and all mod cons for cooking. Tyler drove us to the locations and helped us setup our cameras and what to look for. Thanks Tyler for everything and what a stunning place iceland.

  • I participated in Tyler's Iceland workshop last week and have to say I had the most AMAZING 4 days. Tyler's knowledge of photography and Iceland were invaluable to making the whole experience so memorable. He is very patient, courteous and never left a location until we were all happy with our shots. He would review our images and offer advice and encouragement. He drove long distances to make sure we covered as many of the photo opportunities that the varied landscape of Iceland has to offer. I'd have no hesitation in recommending Tyler's Iceland workshop and hope to do another in the future.
