I mentioned on Facebook the other day that one of my favorite things about maintaining this blog is the fact I get to meet all kinds of interesting people and experience new exciting things. After 6 years of working behind a computer, without actually meeting the people who’s vacations I’ve been planning or the users of the websites I’ve been updating, I think I was really longing for some human contact. I just didn’t know it.
One of these interesting people is Craig, my self-proclaimed go-to video guy. He single handily turned a very modest idea about testing out some scooters into a big production that involved 4 people, 4 scooters and some bending of the traffic law. He was also the man behind the camera during my mini Reykjavík make-over, all the while he was organizing his very own film festival that took place on people’s couches. He’s also slightly, slightly being the understatement of the year, hyperactive.
Craig’s newest project is to teach tourists in Reykjavík how to work out their camera to get the best possible photos of all the magical wonders Iceland has to offer. He has teamed up with my friends at the Reykjavík Downtown Hostel and is offering classes there every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday at 17:30- as long as someone signs up.
Although the workshop is held at the Downtown Hostel, it’s open to anyone who wants to learn how to take better travel photographs – regardless of where they are staying. It costs 1500 ISK and takes about 1,5 hours. The first one is this Saturday, February 4th at 17:30.
Although I haven’t participated in the workshop, yet, I have worked with him and can tell you that he’s very energetic, enthusiastic and lots of fun. So if you are interested in learning more about your camera, I’m sure that this is 1500 ISK well spent.
If you want to take part, all you need to do is sign up for it at the Reykjavík Downtown Hostel at Vesturgata 17.
