Southern Contrasts - Glaciers, Volcanoes & Waterfalls
This early season photographic holiday combines some of Iceland’s classic and iconic sights with many off the beaten track locations. Although the 1st May is the official first day of summer in Iceland, the mountains and highlands will still have a covering of snow making this the perfect time for those spectacular and unusual shots with a wintery back-drop.This end of May departure is just three weeks from the summer solstice with the sun disappearing for around three hours only; almost twenty four hours of brightness and plenty of magical ambient light will ensure sunrises and sunsets that go on and on affording maximum time behind the lens to capture some memorable images. Outside of Reykjavik the hotel accommodations have been chosen for their spectacular situations, comfort and modern amenities. Partners of photographers will be welcomed. Photography tutor Martin Sammtleben will work throughout enabling participants to return home with a unique Iceland portfolio. Lightroom tutorials from beginner to advanced will be offered allowing participants to learn how to develop their images to a high standard.

This holiday departs 21 May 2011 for nine days. The cost is £2,085 per person, which includes all accommodation, in country transport, most meals, all transfers, the services of a guide and photographic tutor, admission to the Blue Lagoon. Flights are not included. Wild Photography Holiday's owner and guide Geraldine Westrupp commented, ''Iceland is a very happening place for modern landscape photography, quite often the terrain here does not conform to idealised images of a beautiful landscape, it stretches the imagination, the outcome is often a portfolio of 'out of the ordinary' and very unusual images"
