Iceland Snæfellsnes and Westfjords Photo Retreat - with Marc Koegel - September 17 to 23, 2017 - US$3985 ($1000 deposit to hold a seat)
Most workshops in Iceland concentrate on the southern coast and its tourist packed sights and photo opportunities.
For this fantastic photo tour, we like to take you off this beaten path to instead visit 2 of the most beautiful, yet often neglected, areas of Iceland: The incredible Snæfellsnes peninsula and the majestic Westfjords.
We'll visit huge cliffs, historic lighthouses, deep fjords, amazing waterfalls, authentic shipwrecks, deserted fishing villages and even an abandoned fish factory.
On our way to the sparsely populated Westfjords, we begin this photo tour photographing the wild coastal landscapes of the Snæfellsnes peninsula. After a very scenic boat trip we arrive in the Westfjords. As we continue to travel further north and closer to the artic circle, we'll see fewer and fewer tourists, but photographic opportunities are plentiful and become increasingly unique the further we venture off the beaten path.
This is the perfect photo tour for those who have visited Iceland before (and want to come back for more), as well as those interested in exploring more remote areas that are neglected by most photographers.
Join international award-winning Fine-Art Photographer Marc Koegel for this unique Photo Tour opportunity. Marc's imagery from Iceland has received numerous international awards, most recently he was awarded 'First Prize' in the PX3 2015 Competition. The jury selected PX3 2015’s winners from thousands of photography entries from over 85 countries.
With a maximum of 8 participants, this photo tour is small enough to guarantee you lots of personal interaction, guidance and instruction.
