Gram and White 1/2

For those that may be tuning in for the first time, I am Joe shutter: a blogger, photographer and photo guide based in Reykjavik, Iceland. I always go the extra mile to get the shots and get off the beaten track to my special off the map spots.  If you are interested in a photo workshop/tutorial whilst in Iceland, get in touch!

Ice cream comes as standard in all photo tours. As does fun, adventure and a tonne of awesome shots.

After the New Life post, Im going back to what I do best, at least better: that is to say, go somewhere great with a great shooting partner and take pictures.

So off I went with Gunnar  (Icelandic Explorer) one glorious evening to shoot. We left very late, but it was OK becuase it was the height of the long summer nights: more than OK, it was perfect. We took a sweet Toyota Hilux from Toyota Iceland, made a quick entry into the highlands before descending into a lush green valley filled with farms and rivers. By the time we came out of the valley, the light was even better.  We continued onwards and upwards to the west, shooting all night until we could shoot no longer and collapsed in a mess of exhaustion.  

The second half forms part of the next blog post.

Living On The Golden Edge

The sea cliff Dyrhóleay at this time of year was truly magnificent, with the low sun setting in the perfect location for some dramatic, golden raking light across the cliffs. The sparkling glacier in the background adds to the magic.

A dramatic high five was the celebration of choice.

The View From The Road

Very little to say here, ladies and gentlemen: just the next instalment of mine and Frank's journey around Iceland.

Since the last past contained so many portraits, I have eschewed the portraits altogether in favour of what I was able the grab from the car window on the way out.

For your enjoyment,

Joe Shutter
