Would you like to photograph Iceland, Greenland and the Faroe Islands? We at Arctic Exposure specialize in these incredible locations in and around the Arctic. Our job is to guide you to the right place at the right time and show you how to photograph these amazing places. Our photography tours and workshops are all-inclusive from start to finish with personal instructions.
Iceland offers many varieties of landscapes for photography, ice caves, volcanoes, lava fields, iceberg lagoons, black beaches, seascapes, glaciers and mountains. All of which create a beautiful foreground for the perfect Northern Lights photograph.
Depending on the season, you'll always get a different picture of the island and its landscape, making it an all-year-round location. On our Iceland workshops, we offer specially modified Super Trucks to have access to the much rural and off-the-beaten-track locations throughout all the seasons of the year.
Depending on the time of year, our workshops focus on different features. Winter offers ice caves and northern lights. In summer, the Icelandic Highlands open and in the autumn we capture the autumn colors in the soft light at sunrise.
Photography Tours and Workshops in Greenland are a unique way to explore the country. Many of our guests explore the subtle colors of each destination and like to move from tiny details in rocks and ice to sweeping panoramic stories and back.
The essential part of our tours is the rough, mountainous and contrasting landscape that distinguish Greenland's nature. The sparsely populated island has small local communities that are dominated by the enormous Greenland glaciers and shaped by the Arctic climate.
In our workshops, we photograph icebergs the size of skyscrapers, steep mountains which fall into the sea, deep fjords, floating icebergs, glaciers, sled dogs, whales, northern lights and the culture of Greenland.
The Faroe Islands
The islands are a unique location to photograph. Comprised of 18 islands located in the middle of the Gulf Stream, halfway between Scotland and Iceland, the Faroe Islands offer beautiful surroundings.
The landscape is put together by many fjords with stunning mountains on each side. The sea plays a large part of everyday life in the Faroes, and it does the same for the visiting landscape photographer. The soaring sea cliffs, charismatic seabirds such as puffins and gannets, lighthouses and rural fishing communities are the feature in many locations.
In our workshops, we visit the best photography locations the islands have to offer as well as try to get the sense of history and culture. We stay in rural fishing communities as well as in the capital, Tórshavn, to get the best experience of both food and the culture.
