Important Info for Photographers
You should try to book your ticket to Reykjavík (airport code KEF) so that it arrives on September 17th. (If you have problems with jet lag, please consider coming a day or two early and booking a local hotel for that night.) We do not pick up the van until the morning of the 18th so we will not be able to provide transit from the airport. However there is a very easy bus called Flybus/Reykjavik Excursions that goes directly from the terminal to Nordurey Hotel (Reykjavik Road) for about $27 USD. It is located right outside the Keflavík International Airport and it leaves 35-40 minutes after arrival of each flight. (The trip will take approximately 50 minutes.)
Book your flight home preferably on September 24th. If you need to leave the 23rd, we should be back in Reykjavík by 8pm. (Note that that the bus to the airport is a 45 minute - 1 hour drive so please plan accordingly.)
Our transport is a 19-seater van with a pull-along trailer for luggage.
A welcome dinner is provided on arrival day, September 17th. Breakfast, lunch & dinner are all provided September 18 - 23rd. We do not cover the costs for snacks or alcohol so you may want to bring extra spending money.
Our main location (Höfn) is an 8-10 hour drive from Reykjavík. We will leave the morning of the 18th, drive a few hours (with a stop for coffee & snacks), drive more and stop in Vík for lunch, and then drive the remaining distance (hopefully stopping in the moss fields to shoot!)
If you have any dietary restrictions, please let us know ASAP. The diet in Iceland is mostly cheese, yogurt, meat & bread but our guesthouse will provide a variety of food (pancakes, burgers etc.) They are happy to accommodate gluten-free and dairy-free diets.
There will be a small presentation with a "get to know you" section, so we would love if you were ready to share a little bit about yourself :)
Please carefully read over the What To Pack list. While we will have towels and hot chocolate ready for models to warm up with after posing, photographers will need a few more specialized items.
