In Iceland the possibilities for a good photoshoot is endless literally. In many cases world renowned photographers have been to the island and cought many of the most spectacular photos that have then ended up as coverphotos of the biggest magazines in the world.

All the elements for that one great photo everybody is trying to get are here.  Great lighting during daylight and sunset. All those mountain views and waterfalls. The glaciers, geysir´s and even volcano eruption (not regularly)  And then off course the most sought after, the northern lights. Possibilities are almost endless.
