Join me and National Geographic’s Ira Block in Iceland!

The Land of Ice and Fire. Join us as we travel through this magical place. We’ll spend 3 days in the capital city of Reykjavik. We’ll tour the Golden Circle, soak in the Blue Lagoon and head south to the volcanic black sand beaches. This  spectacular landscape has it all; waterfalls, forests, volcanoes, hot springs, geysers and glaciers. We’ll also venture to the Jokulsarian Lagoon to shoot the ice floes.  Hands on technical classes and daily critiques will take your photography to the next level.

About Us:

Ira Block:

For more than thirty years, Ira Block has been covering assignments around the world for National Geographic—in locations as diverse as Africa, the Australian outback, the Gobi Desert, Siberia, the North Pole, Greenland, and Baffin Island. The subject matter of Ira's photographs is as varied as the destinations stamped in his passport. Some of his assignments include "The Samurai Way" and "Race to Save Incan Mummies." From gold coins retrieved from Havana's sunken treasure ships to the largest discovered T-Rex dinosaur, to a lost Confederate submarine, Ira's lens continues to capture and document amazing stories from around the globe. His photos of the tenth anniversary of the 9/11 tragedy are part of the permanent collection of the National September 11 Memorial Museum.


Liza Politi:

Liza’s first documentary feature, “By The People” (2006) was broadcast on PBS and won a prestigious HUGO award. Currently shooting "Best Seat in the House," a documentary focusing on Rock-star drummers, Liza is also in post-production on a new full-length feature, "Suck It Up Buttercup." For the famed Culture Project, Liza produced “Impact On The Gulf”, a multimedia action-oriented human rights festival which debuted in New York City; and in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, her USO-style tour, Broadway on the Bayou received national attention and was featured on MSNBC. Liza is now working with National Geographic and their legendary photographers, producing expeditions and photography workshops all over the world.  Comfortable on both sides of the camera, she is also an award winning actor, photographer and teacher.
