Photographing Iceland – James Rushforth

Book review – Photographing Iceland is a two volume guide to Iceland, how and what to photograph there

The land of fire and ice has become a popular destination for photographers in much the same way that Cuba was a decade or so years ago. Iceland appeals to those who love the great outdoors, with expansive landscapes, active volcanoes, ice caves and glacial beaches plus, in winter, the chance to see the Northern Lights – Aurora Borealis. The appeal to landscape and adventure photographers is not hard to see!

All these factors have led to an explosion in photography workshops with Iceland as their destination. The choice is quite bewildering. However, Iceland is also a good destination for the independent travellers and those who want to navigate the country themselves to be in the best locations before and after the tourists and photography groups.
