Du musst es lieben, dann wird es gut
Auf Bilderjagd mit dem Fotografen Rafn Sig

The soft light of a sunset and dawn’s freshness are part of the magic that the island exerts on hunters of the moment. For photographers, Iceland is among the most magical places in the world.
If you like to live your passion for taking stunning pictures under professional guidance, you should get in touch with ‘Rabbi’ Rafn Sig, one of the big names among Iceland’s photographers.

 Small groups, big chances
Being a professional tour operator, he knows that the best way to elicit secrets from the country is by travelling in small groups. “You have to be relaxed for landscape shooting,” says Rafn, “everyone needs his time for a picture. And, after all, you want to enjoy the moment.” He offers tours travelling in a comfortable four-wheel drive Mitsubishi, suitable for any highland trip.
He doesn’t conceal the fact that photo hunting is still a lot of fun for him, even after 30 years of professional work. When he was a boy, he found places of incredible beauty in the highlands. Their special magic had to be captured—and a lifelong passion was born. “It’s all about loving it,” says Rafn, “Then it will be fine.”

Like-minded travelling companions

This professional photographer’s pictures have been published all over the world. He likes to share his passion for travel with like-minded people. His offers of customized, all year round photo trips and workshops range from a day to a fortnight long.
During the summer, he prefers the gentle midnight light of highland gems such as Landmannalaugar, the summit Hrafntinnusker, or the impressive Kerlingafjöll, with its colourful rhyolite mountains and geothermal valleys. Going south, he is fascinated by the black beaches of Vík, the incredible diversity of Skaftafell National Park, and of course, the goddess for all photographers: the famous Jökulsárlón glacial lagoon. When you join him in his car, he might have a few more secrets to share. 

Fasziniation Westfjorde
Nach Norden hin wendet Rabbi sich immer wieder gerne in die Westfjorde, dem vergessenen Paradies Islands und eine der am wenigsten besuchten Regionen der Insel. Da lacht das Herz des Fotografen! Alles in den Westfjorden ist extrem – von den beinahe senkrecht aufragenden Klippen bis hin zu den furchtbaren Stürmen, die der Küstenlinie über die Zeiten ihr zerfurchtes Gesicht gegeben haben. Am berühmtesten Kliff Islands, Látrabjarg, ist Gelegenheit, mit der Belichtungszeit zu experimentieren, um fliegende Papageientaucher und andere Küstenvögel einzufangen. Eine Fotojagd so weit im Norden ist nichts für Schüchterne, die Temperaturen reichen selten über 10 Grad und oftmals sieht man Eisberge an der Küste vorbeischwimmen.

Skógarfoss


Schatzsuche Nordlicht
Der Winter mit seinen wenigen Stunden Tageslicht stellt eine besondere Herausforderung an jeden Fotografen. Lange Dämmerungen, in denen sich sonniges Gold über die Hügel ergießt, und Nächte, in denen der Himmel voller Nordlicht so nah wie sonst nirgends erscheint, sind in der Gruppe ein ganz besonderes Vergnügen.
