7-DAY ADVENTURE WORKSHOP, DEC 4-10 - Chris Burkard
CHRIS BURKARD 2014 APPLE GIGAPIXEL ICELAND SHOOT SKOGAFOSS WATERFALL

On December 4th-10th 2017, Chris will be guiding a 7 day workshop in Iceland's North Coast. This workshop will be an immersive winter workshop focusing on chasing the northern lights alongside winter landscapes. With limited day light, this is the best time of year to photograph them. During our small window of daylight we will have the opportunity to shoot kayaking, surfing, skiing, and seek out the best landscapes we can. We will be traveling through the Westfjords of Iceland, where light pollution is non-existent, and the aurora borealis are best seen. We will also be covering workshop modules such as image editing, composition, social media, onsite critiques, and much more!

WORKSHOP REVIEWS

"Having Chris teach about what to look for in a photo and also the portfolio review was quite helpful. It was great to take what we learned in the modules then go outside and apply it." - Steve T.


"It was really great to see a different workflow and the processes Chris’ uses for backing up. Also being able to share unique experiences like jumping in the glacial bay and different hot springs." - Tom C.
