“Of all the things I’ve done in my career, I hold most dear the success I’ve had running workshops, and I feel  know a lot about that subject, enough to say that Jack Graham is probably the preeminent workshop provider in the field today!  His concern for his clients is amazing and he works tirelessly to see they get “more” than they paid for!  We have been friends for a long, long time.  He did his first workshop with me with the late Galen Rowell in the early nineties.  Jack was a big time professional musician playing with big names like Frank Sinatra!  He put that same effort into photography and has become one of the best out there today! Jack has become not only someone I admire, but someone I love very much, I’m thrilled we get to work together!”—Bill Fortney

WINTER in ICELAND…..DAY ONE

_jgx1851We began out  our 5 day workshop today. As usual winter in Iceland always provides weather that is never dull. Prior to today’s departure from Reykjavik,  I took 2 clients out for a day, venturing to some areas we are not going to during our time together starting today.

We had a day of wind, rain, sun rainbows, and dramatic light. Being patient was the order of the day. Here are a few images. We visited one of my favorite churches in Iceland and used the clouds to tell the story of drama. The black skies behind the lighthouse was from an exiting storm. We had a beam of bright sun that lasted about a minute that side-lit the lighthouse with some amazing light.

DAY ONE: Day one was challenging. We had a fair amount of rain. Our group did get some great images from Skogarfoss. We made some really dramatic images of the huge crashing waves on the rocky beach in Vik, on the south coast of Iceland
