For those that may be tuning in for the first time, I am Joe shutter: a blogger and photographer based in Iceland.
I pass on what I learn out here through my tailor-made photo workshops and tutorials. They can be as long or as short as my clients need them to be, and I always go the extra ten miles (or ten hours) to get the shots and get off the beaten track wherever possible.
If you are interested in a photo workshop/tutorial in Iceland, get in touch through my email ( email@example.com ) or through my Instagram handle
This is a short post about an afternoon that I sent with the brilliant blogger behind Modular Juice, Instagram @cs.teed. Easily one of the most interesting bloggers I have ever met, she takes tastefully nude pictures of herself in abandoned buildings wearing a bunny mask. She was kind enough to lend me a picture from her unique situational portrait series as wall as take all of the pictures of me on our our afternoon together. Thank you, Bunny! Her bio:
Making her way into abandoned factories, ruins and forgotten towns, Bunny's character gracefully explores the human body's resilience with the vulnerbility of the uninhabited and sometimes destroyed locations, documenting the encounter between fear and fascinination
On this day she opted for more natural settings, and we went out for the afternoon to explore Thingvellir and the fissures around the lake and the tectonic plates.
A word about the plates: many people are misinformed about them. Many believe that they can walk from "Europe" to "America" and this is the standard plug the tourism industry puts on it. However, in order to truly do this ( cross from one plate to another ) it would require a hike of somewhere between 8-10KM.
Thats the take away. Anyway, here are the shots.
