To see some of the images from this trip and video, check out this article on the blog:

I finally got the chance to shoot some travel photography in Iceland. It seems like every professional travel photographer on the planet has been there in the past couple years, so it was nice to get some images under my belt there too.
I just had a week to photograph Iceland, which isn’t nearly enough time. I think I could have spent a solid month there and still not felt like I had properly covered it. Since it was my first time there, I really tried to just hit up the hotspots and try to find some other cool things in between. It was a bit of a scouting trip for the next time I go.
Now, well photography in Iceland is fairly easy in that there is always an amazing image to capture, it’s also extremely challenging at times. The weather changes every five minutes, there are rolling storms and lots of wind; so it makes for a bit of an adventure.
Anyways, I hope you enjoyed the video. I’ve got a couple more photography videos from Iceland coming in the next little while, so stay tuned, and don’t forget to subscribe!



  1. I did similar trips the last 2 years in a row.  Iceland is just amazing.  Watching your video brought back memories of my trips there.  I hope to try it in the fall sometime.  Great video and photographs!

    I'm planning a trip between Feb/April 2015 but can't decide when to go, any tips?

  6. Awesome narration and locations! One suggestion: Could you please freeze video for 3-5 seconds when photos are being shown? It is quite irritating to manually pause video when photos are being displayed.

  7. One of my videos is buzzing right now on YouTube.  Gotta love it when that happens!

  8. You win a suscriber. Awesome video. Keep the good work!

You are an inspiration to many people and I love the realness of your videos as well as the high quality and the unique viewpoint of your photography. I'm subscribing right now. Respect Brendan.

    Awesome video!!! Looks very much like New Zealand where Ive been twice, first time 5 days on a camper all around south island and the second  time about 9 days on another camper in the south island also, I can't wait to go to Iceland since its much closer for me than NZ , hopefully will visit it sometime next year!!

    btw what was the name of the car company you rented your vehicle from?

  15. when have you been there? cause it seems like summertime, but there is a picture of the northern lights on 7.06

  16. Qist F says:

    It's easy to capture nice view into camera. How about something unusual view like flat view only.. and limited view. Gross also.. kind of messy and unworth it.. Can you make it as good as those pictures you captured?

  17. Trinh Loc says:

    I can see your photos are better ! Wanna see more !

  18. I just stumbled on this video, but I think I met you shooting in Zion at the overlook trail in February.  Great stuff man!  I'm heading to Iceland in two months and will have to check out these spots!

  19. why are you shooting at 10mm can someone please explain

  20. awesome video. well done, looking forward to getting there one day.

  21. Hi Brendan, following your videos some time, I watched this one again. I will go to Iceland in Feb 2016 for the third time. I was wondering if you can tell me where the small waterfall is, which you are showing between 5:38 and 5:42 ??? I cannot find out. Thank you!

    Great work I'm planning on going here next this year. As of right now I'm in South Korea taken some great shots of the mountains and the City of Seoul :D

  23. Tucker Smith says:

    I have a question, I don't want to become a professional photographer by any means but I would like to do it as a hobby. I am very new to it and still figuring out a bunch of stuff. What does it mean my 1 sec., 10 sec, 5 sec, .6 sec. etc.?? I know this is an old video but I love it. great work

  24. Al Diggity says:
