Workshop Description
On August 12th, 2026 the west-end of Iceland will be treated to a spectacular total solar eclipse, the rarest of them all, where the moon perfectly obscures the sun. The path of total shadow (umbra) across the Earth’s surface width of 30-50 miles while the path of partial shadow (penumbra) can reach over 1,000 miles wide attaining a speed of 1,600 miles per hour. In this case, the eclipse will be visible only on the east-end of Iceland for a total of 2 hours and 1 minute.

On this unique, once-in-a-lifetime workshop, we will be discussing and instructing on how to photograph the total solar eclipse, then put our practice to the test by photographing the eclipse from an excellent (currently undisclosed*) location.

In preparation for the workshop, we will make sure you are aware of the proper gear you will need to bring, from filters to cameras and lenses to tripods and more! We will meet online, via a webinar, about a month prior, to discuss more of the specifics and give you a “dry run” of the process. We will maximize our time in the field practicing our “eclipse timing” and spend the day running through the whole setup, including composition, camera settings, when to utilize filters, how to execute bracketing, and more so that you are fully prepared during the eclipse. We will also have time available for post-processing, which is extremely unique to this type of photography.

After the Eclipse, we will also have the added bonus…of touring Iceland, where we will tour and photograph “the Golden Circle”.

This will include Gullfoss waterfall, Geysir Geothermal field and Þingvellir National Park, all of which must-sees for everyone visiting Iceland. Þinvellir was accepted on the World Heritage list for cultural values in 2004 and is part of a fissure zone running through Iceland, being situated on the tectonic plate boundaries of the Mid-Atlantic Ridge. This gives us amazing landscapes to photograph!

For many, this will be a once-in-a-lifetime experience that you don’t want to miss!!!
