PODAS Iceland A Success In So Many Ways

The 2012 Iceland PODAS group

In our opening presentations at the beginning of each PODAS we emphasize our goal of providing the best workshop there is anywhere for our attendees.  We stress the time we will be together, multiple instructors, and we stress the word fun, because that is what getting out and taking photographs is all about.  This workshop accomplished so much more and also all of our goals.  There we were amazing photographs, excellent weather, super instructors and some absolutely beautiful work created by the attendees who had come from around the world.  We had Australians, Canadians, Americans, Russian, Norway, Germany, Swiss, Great Britain, Denmark and Iceland represented.  There was no politics or even talk, everything was photography and it feels good to know that when individuals come together with a passion, nothing else matters.  I’d like to thank my team, Peter Eastway, Drew Altdoerffer, Steve Gosling and Daniel Bergman.  Without these folks we would not have had a successful PODAS.  We are about to announce a few more PODAS workshops for this year and will announce the 2013 schedule this summer.  Stop back here, or even subscribe to this blog so you receive the later news.

Finishing Up PODAS Iceland

Glacial Lagoon Moon Setting, Iceland

We had quite an agenda and a long list of places and things to shoot on this trip.  Mission accomplished.  We have been to glaciers, waterfalls, Icelandic horses, vistas, a cruise through the Glacial lagoon, sea scapes, churches at sunrise, and so much more.  This has been a week of keepers.  All of us are returning with a lot of images for our portfolios and walls.  The instructors Peter Eastway, Steve Gosling have been excellent.  Daniel Bergman has taken us places others don’t often visit.  My self and Drew were there to assist, teach and support everyone.  Just a damn good time.  And, picture taking wasn’t all of it. New friends from a round the world joined together for the sake of enjoying the passion of photography.  Tomorrow we’ll post the group photo and say a little about the group.  Hope you enjoy today’s images.
