Do you have a huge love for travelling and is it your dream to be able to combine this with your passion for photography? Then read on quickly to find out more!
Like Jikke and me, do you dream of a photo trip to the beautiful and mythical South Iceland? Then join us for a seven-day photo trip.
Join us in photographing plenty of beautiful horses in different landscapes! From waterfalls to lava fields, to beautiful black beaches, brightly coloured mountains, glacial lakes and hopefully the purple lupines.
We are the first to organise a trip to southern Iceland focusing mainly on the bond between owner and horse. That is not all, as there is also definitely the possibility for spectacular action photos, photos in a herd, portrait photos of the horse alone and possibly even riding photos.
Hello, I'm Lieselotte from LCPD.be, I'm 27 and a Belgian (full-time) animal photographer. I have been specialising in dog and horse photography for 10 years. With my own 3 Icelandic horses and by now more than 10 trips to the country itself, you can call me a real Icelandic fanatic and expert
Hi, I'm Jikke, 24 years old and an enthusiastic travel enthusiast from the Netherlands. In daily life, I am an entrepreneurial coach for animal photographers and organise my greatest passion; photography trips. It is my mission and dream to take as many other photographers as possible to a new environment to help you grow personally and as a business.
The price is including 21% VAT.
There are two options for getting to Iceland. The most obvious way is to travel by plane to Keflavik airport. Not into flying? Then you can also take the ferry to Iceland from Denmark. The exact address where we expect you will be sent to you via e-mail.
This photo trip is suitable for photographers who already know how their camera works. This is because we do not discuss theory together. Of course, it is possible to ask questions. However, you do not need to have a business or be a horse photographer. This trip is all about horse photography, so an affinity with horses would be useful (also for yourself). Are you a minor? No problem! With written permission from your parents, you are welcome on this trip. In case of health problems or illnesses, please contact us to discuss what is possible.
Please note that most locations are easily walkable, but keep in mind that it is an intensive programme where we will have many photo sessions. In addition, there is midnight sun, where it barely gets dark one day. So the photo sessions may be very early or very late in relation to the position of the sun and avoiding the tourists. We try to ensure as much (choices of) rest and relaxation as possible. In doubt? Send us a message and we'll look right over with you!
You will be sent a whole laundry list in preparation, but the most important things:
Clothing essentials we recommend for travel:
I have been to Iceland more than 10 times so I know exactly what you need to wear at least on a day to avoid being cold. It is hard to predict what the weather will be in Iceland during the trip. They don't say "if you don't like the weather just wait five minutes" for nothing. We go in July for a reason because of the most stable weather then. The temperature hovers around 15 degrees all day. However, the wind in particular can be cold compared to the Netherlands. Think of it as a day at the beach with the often accompanying strong wind. The photo sessions will be timed according to the weather. No worries and don't let this stop you from signing up!
A deposit of about 15% of the total amount will be sent two weeks after registration and confirmation. Only after several months will an invoice be sent with the rest of the amount. Payment in instalments is also a possibility!
We obviously want to keep the price as low as possible so that it is accessible to as many different people as possible. Unfortunately, Iceland is a very expensive country to stay in, so we are forced to do the price higher as well. We do, of course, want to be able to give you good food, great sleep and comfortable travel during the trip. So we don't skimp on these things. There are also several workshops included in the photo trip, in which we as photographers are fully open to let you grow as much as possible. We have invested a lot of time and money to prepare this photo trip to perfection.
