Iceland’s scenery is world-renowned and world-class. It is a place photographer’s 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

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.
— Chrissy Donadi
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 Morgan
I’m not blowing smoke when I say you and Sarah Marino have produced one of the best location guides I’ve seen.
— Michael Bollino
The e-book is freaking amazing. I’m about 2/3 the way through it and am blown away by the amount of detail and information contained in it. You done good.
— Brett Nickeson
Forever Light Iceland is an eBook that I recommend to pretty much everyone. And I do mean everyone. Even if you are not a crazy Clif-bar-feasting, sleep-and-nutritionally-deprived landscape photographer, there’s enough information in here to ensure that everyone gets a unique, artistically rewarding experience in a country that’s seen a boom in conventional tourism. In fact, in the last few weeks I have recommended this book to many non-photographer friends bound for Iceland. The photos are inspiring and the information is so thoughtfully presented, I feel like I’ve been there already. Thanks, Ron and Sarah! The world awaits more expertly-researched guides that I’m sure are coming soon.
— Schmoo Theune
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 Tavakkol
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.
— Justin Reznick
