Highlights from Seth Resnick Iceland Creative Workshop

I would have posted each day as planned but we were shooting for 18 hours a day and didn’t always have internet. This was one of my most enjoyable workshops ever. Below is a small sampling of some of the many highlights of the trip. Already excited to return next year teaching a joint workshop with John Paul Caponigro 

Reykjanesvirkjun, geothermal power plant in the Southern Iceland.

Patterns from the deposits of minerals were incredible

The ground was simply at bubbling array of color and steam

 

Hiking on the Vatnajokull Glacier was certainly a highlight

 

Going into an ice cave was pretty cool as well

The best highlight of the trip was climbing Eyjafjallajokull to the site of the eruption. At the based the water was filled with mineral deposits.

These are but a small sampling of my images from an incredible week. My class put in long long hours and on one night we got back at 1 AM and every single person in the class stayed up in the lobby drinking a bit of vodka until 4 AM working on images. Thanks to Einar and Ragnar for all their hard work and thanks to all my students for inspiration and enjoyment.

Next workshop is with Greg Gorman and it too will be Amazing…
