Haukur (Hawk) says:
There are many phototours out there nowadays. We do not offer lot of tours on our webside, since its not about quantity for us, its more to enjoy every single tour we are doing with small group quality. Aside from our fixed tours seen here on our webside, then part of our work are private tours. I design the tours where I love to photograph myself and that means often off the beaten track and in places that are not "famous". When we visit famous locations we preferably get there early morning or late evening to dodge the crowds and then getting the good light as well. The weather being so ever changeable - the landscape so wonderfully diverse; for me being a native born Icelander, it still surprices me - and gives me new photo experiences. I am always happy to share my photographic visions and experience during the tours to anyone interested. I also find it important during our tours to inform our travellers about basic information about Iceland ; specially its geology and culture. Plus leading photo tours, I time to time enjoy guideing hiking tours and tours of general interest specially into the highlands of Iceland.
