Iceland is an amazing country, with many areas looking like you are on a different planet. It’s also often quite a distance between locations, so days can involve very early starts and long drives. Fortunately Lulu and I are both passionate about location photography, and get on so well together, which is what you need given the many long and tiring days.
The first shot is Lulu in amongst the black lava. She stands out so well against the black rock, and I like how the specks of white studded in the rock producing interesting patterns.
This is one of the most famous beaches in Iceland, regularly packed with tourists and photographers, so you can imagine that it took a really early start, but I think it was worth it, and Lulu mirrored the shape of one of the pointy rocks.
As it was the middle of Summer, with loads of tourists, it was not easy to get right up to the snow and ice, but we were close enough to get this shot of her in front of a glacier.
These rocks were covered in a strange coloured moss, and the nearby hills provided a good backdrop.
This moss looks nice and soft, but the rock is really sharp just underneath it.
Many thanks to Lulu for all the discomfort and other things she endured to make sure we got lots of great shots. As you can see from my website we work together a lot, but she is such a great location model you can see why.
