What will I see?

Iceland offers an incredible wealth of photo motifs for photographers. And if you can do this tour with an Icelandic connoisseur and photographer, an exciting journey full of adventure, nature and great pictures is inevitable.

The Lucerne travel agency Rilex will ensure that the trip runs smoothly and in addition to your photo-technical questions during the trip you will be accompanied by Chris Zimmermann and Pirmin Suter, one of the two managing directors of P&M PHOTO MEDIA Lucerne.

I know Iceland in every season and have put together a travel plan for you that will leave nothing to be desired. Enjoy immense landscapes, glaciers, waterfalls, the highlands and with a bit of luck, even auroras, during these seven days.

We will cover the distances between the photo spots with one or two rental vehicles (VW T6 4x4 bus or similar) and then the spots will be explored on foot. Good shoes and winter-proof clothes are expected. In the evenings we go to the hotel, do the check-in and during a delicious dinner you can review the events and impressions of the day.

You can move freely at the photo spots and have enough time to enjoy nature and take your pictures. If you get bored: I have drones and various Syrp Motion Control devices in my luggage, which you are welcome to test and try out.

What to bring
Gear
  • We recommend an DSLR or mirrorless camera with interchangeable lenses for this trip
  • 1 or 2 different lenses are usually enough during a shoot as there are many variations with angles, light, exposure time and of course the different locations and subjects. The list below gives you some ideas so that you can set your personal preferences
  • General Lenses: 24-70, 24-105 for a wide range of photo types and panoramas
  • Wide angle Lenses: 11-24, 16-35 for great wide angle shots
  • Telephoto Lenses: 70-200, 28-300, 100-400 for details in subjects
  • Special Lenses: If you own a Macro lense or a Tilt-Shift lens - there will be plenty of opportunities to use them
  • Tripod: For morning, evening and long exposure shots during daylight. A tripod will greatly enhance your photographic experience
  • Filters: Polarizer, ND-Filters in different grades 3, 6, or 10 stops or variable ones for perfect long exposure shots
  • Accessoires: Spare batteries and memory cards. Camera and Lens cleaning set. Raincover for your gear
Other Essentials
  • Temperature can vary greatly during the day. So we recommend you dress in layers and don't forget a rain jacket and an umbrella
  • Sun protection is essential. A hut and sun creme is recommended
  • Please bring your personal ID

  • Canon (Lenses)
