Photography & Northern Lights in Reykjavik
Description: This is the eleventh year that SEEDS organizes series of International Photo marathons. Throughout the year participants from all over the world come to Iceland for an immersive photography related learning camp. SEEDS coordinators help the participants to develop their unique photographic skills through workshops and feedback sessions on technical settings, compositional considerations as well as developing conceptual frameworks which progress the participants individual style When the workshops end, we select some of our best pictures from the camp and prepare those images for an informal group exhibition in a local independent cinema. Participants should bring with them their own digital cameras, lenses, and laptops if possible.
Type of Work: Participants should be prepared for walking and visually exploring the city streets and working within a flexible time schedule. Participants will be photographing in their free time outside of workshop hours with images to be discussed at group feedback sessions.
Please note this project is more of a learning/sharing camp and not a regular work camp; we may be able to organize some outdoor voluntary service but it depends on our partners and weather conditions.
Participants should also use this opportunity to share something about their own culture, such as food, music, and films with the international group.
Study Theme: In this project SEEDS will organize a night photography and Aurora hunting (Northern lights) workshop to the countryside in the close vicinity of Reykjavík. This will take place during late evening and possibly into the night. We will choose a night according to the Aurora forecast by the Icelandic meteorological office. It is possible we do not see any northern lights during the trip but we will in any case organise the night photography workshop.Please note, we cannot guarantee that you will see northern lights as solar activity is irregular and it depends on weather.
Accommodation: SEEDS participants will stay in an equipped house in Reykjavík, which is located about 4 kilometers from the centre of the city. The facilities are basic with a shower, kitchen and a washing machine. The group will sleep in shared rooms and shall bring their own sleeping bag. Participants from other projects may also stay in the house for part of the time. Participants will receive food supplies and be in charge of the cooking and cleaning activities. Do not forget some traditional/typical food, drinks and recipes from your home country for the international evening.
Language: English will be the language in the camp; basic conversational skills are needed.
Approximate Location: Reykjavík is spread across a peninsula with a panoramic view of the mountains and the Atlantic Ocean on almost all sides. Reykjavík is an International city with a lively cosmopolitan cultural scene surrounded with beautiful nature.
Notes: Please note, we cannot guarantee that you will see northern lights as solar activity is irregular and it depends on weather and meteorological conditions.
