In 2024, Fujifilm will enter the land of fire and ice! Iceland is a country of extreme contrasts; it’s home to some of Europe's biggest glaciers, as well as some of the world’s most active volcanoes.
It’s a photographer and traveller's paradise with picturesque scenes at every twist and turn. You’ll have a chance see of some of the 10,000 waterfalls spread across the island and the golden circle area, where geothermal energy provides the heating for many of Iceland’s most popular and revered locations — including businesses, greenhouses and swimming pools. The Southeast is quintessential Iceland and plays host to Europe’s biggest glacier, Vatnajökull, and the world-famous black sand beaches on which the powerful waves of the North Atlantic break.
This 5 day residential workshop is centred around the skills and techniques needed for beginner and intermediate travel and landscape photographers.
Here are just a few of the techniques we will cover throughout the workshop:
Included but not limited to:
You’re welcome to bring your own set-up, a selection of the latest Fujifilm GFX and X Series equipment, specifically suited to capture beautiful landscape and travel photography, will be available for you to try.
There will also be a selection of 3LeggedThing tripods and Kase filters available. If there is anything specific you are wanting to try, drop us an email at fujifilm_schoolUK@fujifilm.com
We will be staying at three beautiful hotels throughout our travels, all of which are along the south coast of Iceland.
Firstly, we will be staying at Hotel Kria in Vík which was newly built in 2018 and sits alongside the N1 ringroad in a picturesque coastal village. Next, we’re off to Hotel South Coast in Selfoss, which opened its doors in 2019 and is situated alongside the N1 ring road at the heart of the Icelandic south coast. Finally, we’ll end our exquisite photography holiday with the 4* boutique Hotel Berg in Keflavik, which was completely renovated in 2016 and is situated in the south western village of Keflavik. It’s conveniently only a stone’s throw from the airport and also offers free transfers to Keflavik airport after your stay.
Check in: 15:00pm
Check out: 11:00am
Breakfast times: Differ between each hotel but generally between 07:00am- 10:00am
A famous saying in Iceland is that “If you don’t like the weather, just wait 5 minutes”. The weather in Iceland is extremely changeable and unpredictable, it is so changeable that you can experience all four seasons in one hour, let alone one day!
Prepare for wet, windy and cold weather, with chances of snow and ice. There is a greater chance of snow in the winter.
The climate in Iceland is sub-arctic, meaning long and cold winters. The Gulfstream helps to keep temperatures around -3º Celsius during the winter months, but the weather can be harsh with strong winds and snow with the latter coming down sideways, leaving you cold and wet. It is important to get rid of cotton and jeans.
Instead, these essentials will keep you warm:
