Application Process

I will be creating a WhatsApp group chat and adding attendees as they're confirmed so that we can all get connected before we all meet up in person in Iceland in July!

I'll be in touch multiple times leading up to the trip to make sure that we are set up for a successful workshop! You'll receive detailed info about accommodations, itinerary, etc. as well as questionnaires to help finalize the tailoring of the course structure.

Once you're selected, simply pay a deposit and your spot will be secured! There will be information on how to do put down the deposit when you're notified of your acceptance.

There are limited spots available for this workshop so our planning team will be undergoing a selection process to find photogs at similar levels in order to fit educational needs. Please fill out the application form + questionnaire below if you're interested in attending.
