Program Overview

Program Description:

Take your camera outside the studio and into the vast landscapes of Iceland. Anyone can point and shoot. Few can bring forth the technical skills required to capture a memory, tell a story or inspire a feeling. Be one of those few as you join a group of eager photographers in search of the perfect photograph. Follow the coast of Iceland full-circle in pursuit of its relentless natural beauty. Capture images of gushing geysers, frozen cliffs and volcanic craters as you propel your photography skills to the next level. Return home with a stunning portfolio of professional-quality images and a mental album of unforgettable memories. Earn 3 college credits, master advanced Lightroom and Photoshop techniques, and improve your composition skills. Walk away with a deeper appreciation for other cultures, ideas and beliefs. All that you have seen and captured comes together in a professional portfolio. Along the way, you will explore cultural landmarks, take a whale watching tour, visit the Reykjanes lava fields, volancic craters, hot springs and geothermal waters. 
 

Setting Description:
With your camera in tow, embark on an otherworldly Iceland expedition. You’ll circumnavigate the entire coast of Iceland, capturing images of gushing geysers, frozen cliffs and volcanic craters. Visit the Reykjanes lava fields, hot springs and geothermal waters. Take in the brightly colored rooftops of Reykjavik and then visit the roaring Seljlandsfoss waterfall. Hike Thórsmörk, an enormous, rocky mountain ridge named for the Norse god, Thor, and get a panoramic view of your sea-level surroundings. No studio, or Photoshopped-in backdrop can approximate the natural beauty found north near Mývatn, a shallow lake in the middle of an active volcanic area. Stop at the picturesque harbor town of Húsavík, the whale-watching capital of Iceland, to board a boat, and then make your way to Eyrarbakki to hone your Lightroom and Photoshop skills as you edit the vast library of images you’ve accumulated.

    Nothing but praise to say about this program. As my first ever trip abroad I was naturally extremely nervous and didn't know what to expect. Broadreach reached out to me multiple times asking if I had any concerns for the trip, and after listening contently
