I have long been planning to put together a tour(s) to Iceland and was recently prodded by a very good photographer friend of mine (Lance Keimig) who does such tours currently to Scotland and Ireland. We have both had interest expressed by several shooters to do such a trip and now it looks as if we will do something in the coming year.
My question is are any of you APUGgers interested in such an adventure?
My plan would be to take you to some of my favorite places as well as find a few new ones together where you can be turned loose to do your thing. It wouldn't be much of a workshop type of thing, but we will both be on-hand to help in whatever way we can.
Many of you don't need me to tell you what an incredible place Iceland is to simply visit let alone photograph. It is a magical landscape. However, getting around, finding places to stay and eat in the more remote areas can be difficult and time consuming. The plan is to take that worry away from you and leave your time for shooting. One drawback can be the expense as well. Iceland is one of the more expensive places you'll visit due to everything having to be imported. As a group, costs can be kept down as well, although I am estimating that it will cost in the area of $2000.00 per person. You will also be responsible for getting yourself to the jump-off point in the states. Iceland Air leaves from Boston, Baltimore, Minneapolis and Orlando. Minneapolis is the easiest and will most likely be our gathering point before leaving. Anyone meeting us from overseas can be worked-out as well, but you will need to get yourself to Keflavik Airport outside Reykjavik. Travel from Europe will be less and your package price will reflect this.
If interested, PM me and I will put you on the list to be notified of developments as they arise.
Thanks for your time,
