Iceland 2025



Experience the Magic of Iceland: A Photographic Journey with Danny Howard & John Marcheschi

Join us on an unparalleled photography expedition to the enchanting South Coast of Iceland, meticulously organized in collaboration with Chicago Photography Classes. This adventure is not only a voyage to some of the planet’s most awe-inspiring landscapes but also a unique educational retreat designed to refine your photography skills under the guidance of seasoned professionals – Danny Howard and John Marcheschi.

Why Iceland?

Iceland is a realm of stark contrasts, where fire meets ice in dramatic fashion. Its landscapes are a photographer’s dream, composed entirely of volcanic rock, majestic glaciers, and the raw power of tectonic movements. From capturing the serene grace of Icelandic horses to exploring quaint local towns and confronting the elements, our expedition promises to be an enriching experience.

Elevate Your Photography

Our mission is to support your growth as a photographer. Beyond merely visiting breathtaking views and hidden gems beyond the typical tourist trails, we aim to immerse you in the local culture, engaging with the heart and soul of Iceland. Education isn’t just a part of our trip; it’s the essence. On-field learning combined with practical application helps solidify your knowledge, enabling you to bring theory into practice effortlessly.

Your Adventure Begins

Our journey starts with an intimate group meal in Reykjavik, followed by detailed planning for the days ahead. The itinerary includes the iconic Golden Circle and a mesmerizing tour along the South Coast, featuring stops in Selfoss, Vik, and Hofn. Key highlights include the Pingvellir National Park, Gullfoss and Skogafoss Waterfalls, black sand beaches, and hopefully, the elusive Aurora Borealis. We also have exclusive excursions lined up, such as a tour of an Ice Cave.

Please be prepared for the rugged Icelandic terrain and swiftly changing weather conditions – this trip is designed for those who relish the idea of “Combat Photography.”
