The Landscape Photographer's Guide to Iceland (Second Edition)

Iceland’s scenery is world-renowned and world-class. It is a place photographers dream about visiting. Until we published the first edition of Forever Light, there were very few good in-depth resources on photographing Iceland’s natural landscapes. This e-book, Forever Light: The Landscape Photographer’s Guide to Iceland (Second Edition), is designed to fill this gap, help save you time in planning your trip, and get you to some of the best locations Iceland has to offer.  

Forever Light Includes:

  • Information on more than 30 of the best photography locations in Iceland, with detailed directions and GPS coordinates for each.  We also include a brief summary of more than 20 additional locations across Iceland. 
  • Location descriptions including directions, sample photographs, seasonal considerations, and advice on how to approach and photograph the subject.
  • Over 130 high-quality photographs to both inform and inspire.  Technical information (including exposure settings) is included for nearly every photo.
  • Interviews with Justin Reznick, Miles Morgan, Ian Plant, David Thompson, Koveh Tavakkol, and Jim Patterson on subjects like aerial photography, visiting an ice cave, photographing an erupting volcano, photographing puffins, photographing the aurora borealis, and planning your first trip. 
  • Travel information, including lodging and transportation basics, seasonal variations, and weather information to help you get started in planning your trip.
  • Tips for choosing when to visit Iceland for a landscape photography trip, plus sample itineraries.
  • Recommended gear and gear considerations.
  • 127 full-size high resolution pages, ready for viewing on your tablet, computer monitor, or phone.  Forever Light is delivered as a PDF file for immediate download. 

This ebook is perfect for any photographer planning to visit (or re-visit) Iceland, and will also appeal to any non-photographer interested in Iceland’s natural scenery. We developed this e-book to be the guide we wished we had for our first trip to Iceland and based on overwhelmingly positive reviews, we seem to have succeeded!

Additions to the First Edition: 

  • 4 new primary locations and 20+ new secondary locations 
  • More than 30 additional photographs
  • 6 interviews with top landscape photographers to help you plan your trip 
  • 30 additional pages of content 
  • Updated location information and additional travel planning resources

Forever Light Reviews (See More Reviews Here)

After purchasing your “Forever Light” ebook, I need to tell you that it is absolutely phenomenal! I had already done a fair amount of research for my Iceland trip, but your guide would have been all I needed. I wish I ordered this ebook before spending hours reading travel books and researching online. In addition, it is clearly presented and incredibly well-organized.

The best thing you can do to prepare yourself for your first trip to Iceland is pick up this ebook. We went to Iceland equipped with about 7 guide books, several maps, advice, contacts, and ideas, but we found that we referred to “Forever Light” 90% of the time.
— Miles
My friend Christophe and I found your Forever Light guide to be very useful on our trip to Iceland this year. I think it is really the best and most useful travel guide I have ever purchased
— Carsten
Last year around this time I started researching for a trip to Iceland. After weeks of searching and planning I stumbled upon your Forever Light guide. At that point I tossed out all of the other research I had done. Your guide proved to be invaluable both in terms of the time and money it saved me as well as providing essential tips that made the trip enjoyable. Great piece of work and thank you!
— Scott
This is one of the best and most thorough photography guides I have seen. Truly a wealth of fantastic information that covers all aspects of planning a trip to Iceland, regardless of if it is your first trip or a return. I only wish I had this type of information available in a well put together e-book when we first visited this amazing place.
— Koveh
Forever Light is the best all encompassing location ebook I have read. For those interested in a photography trip to Iceland, this is a must have, period.
