In June 2025, I am leading an exclusive wildlife workshop for just five photographers to the remote Hornstrandir Nature reserve in the far northwest of Iceland to live with and photograph wild Arctic Foxes and Arctic Fox cubs under the midnight sun.

This workshop has been timed to take advantage of both the summer solstice as well as the ideal time to photograph young Arctic Fox cubs as they are emerging from their dens.

Arctic Foxes are unfortunately hunted and shot across most of Iceland, making them extremely shy and difficult to find (and even more challenging to photograph). In the remote northwest, however, the Arctic Foxes are protected inside the Hornstrandir Nature Reserve and can be more easily approached and photographed.

This photography expedition will last for seven days (6 nights). We will be staying in a rustic but functional and clean small, remote cabin. During our stay in the cabin, we will have a dedicated staff member to clean and prepare breakfast, lunch, and dinner for us (all included). However, this expedition is all about photography, and we will put in long hours in the field to ensure we give ourselves the best possible opportunities to photograph the Arctic Fox. We may take food and drink into the field to ensure we are positioned and ready to photograph when the foxes are active.
