Iceland Ultimate Puffins Workshop Report

May 27th - June 6th, 2017

In May of 2017 Daniel Bergmann and l lead a new workshop to the north of Iceland specifically to photograph the Atlantic Puffin and other Arctic bird species. Iceland is one of the best places in the world to photograph Puffins and other Arctic birds in their natural environment and late May is the ideal time to ensure plenty of action in the colonies.

Our plan was to focus the majority of our attention on Puffins; although we also planned to visit several different locations around Iceland to photograph different species. We had outstanding access to the Puffins living in burrows on the edge of sea cliffs during this workshop and we had timed our trip to ensure we were in the best locations at the best times to photograph these wonderful birds. There is a lot activity in the bird colonies in late May and early June and we were not disappointed with the sightings and displays.
