imstillpablo asked: Hey, is there any place to take any sort of photography course? Even if its semi-professional
There are a few yes.
These are Iceland tours which combine photography:
Tatra (full trip from London)
Focus on Nature (This one looks best to me as it is guided by one of Iceland’s best nature photographers)
Ljósmyndari.is has plenty of courses aimed at Icelanders.
You might actually be able to get the best answer by asking at the forum on ljosmyndakeppni.is. Just use google translate to register and then ask your question in English. I’m sure you’ll get lots of helpful responses. It is the most active photography forum in Iceland.
solinni asked: Hi~ I have been planning to go to Iceland (or Norway) as an exchange student. I study fine arts in Saimaa University of Applied Sciences in Finland and our school doesn’t have any affiliate programs with any Icelandic school. So do you know if there is any university-level art school that teaches photography in Iceland? I have been trying to look for art school myself, but all art schools I have found either don’t really teach photography or don’t accept exchange students.
Listaháskóli Íslands is the only school that teaches arts at a university level. However I don’t think they have photography as a specific path although I’m sure they have courses and use it as a medium. From what I hear, it is quite difficult to get in, but it’s often easier to get in via exchange programs.
Ljósmyndaskólinn is a private school which teaches photography. I believe it graduates people with a “sveinspróf” in photography, meaning they have the professional title of photographer.
Sorry for the late response.
