A while ago, I have the pleasure of observing Tony on an individual workshop. At the time, I was on a "photo workshop" of Southern Iceland with an instructor who shall remain nameless (I don't want to embarrass him) and we were at the Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon. I observed Tony without a camera. He was carefully guiding his Japanese student... More

I was lucky enough to join two others on a two day photo tour with Owen recently. The tour itself was terrific - Snaellsfellsness peninsula and the South Coast - and that is enough to recommend it. The additional benefit was Owen himself. The real advantage that Owen has is that he loves the country with an obvious passion, loves... More

My family and I recently visited Iceland for a week, and spent four wonderful days touring the southern coast with Owen Hunt. While Iceland was phenomenal- I'd advise anyone considering a visit to go- the main reason for my review is our experience with Owen himself. I am a serious amateur/semi-professional photographer, and have long wanted to visit Iceland. Surprisingly,... More

The photo tour with Skarpi through the Golden Circle was wonderful! Not only did I get to see some absolutely stunning scenery, but I truly learned a lot about photography techniques from Skarpi. Although I'm not entirely novice, I certainly am no expert, so his tutelage was exceptionally appreciated. He helped me with everything from camera settings to composition, compensating... More

After seeing both Tony's and Iurie's pictures, reading the glowing reviews, and in particular Tony's fantastic replies to the only two single star negative reviews (they're gold!) I knew I had to book as many days as possible with these guys and I was not disappointed. We (a mate and I) were in Iceland for 12 days and since Iceland... More

Despite of the terrible weather, we managed to take some nice spots in iceland with variety of tours. Both Tony and Iurie were flexible to ensure the quality of the tours. We are amateur photographers and learnt some photography tips from the guides. (: recommended!

I went back to Iceland in early September after I fell in love with the country back in January. I hired Owen last time for an amazing golden circle tour and I told myself I've got to contact Owen again this time so I did. Owen has organized a day tour for me to go to the central highlands around... More

Tried booking this tour mid-Sept but Tony was unavailable. He recommended we contact another of his colleagues, Skarpi Thrainsson who responded promptly and we decided on a 2 day glacial lagoon and waterfall photo trip. This was the best part of our stay in Iceland. Iceland's landscape is majestic and over the 2 days, Skarpi shared with us vistas of... More
