I recently did a photo tour in Iceland with Eduardo, the owner of Photo World Tours. The trip was amazing. Yes, Eduardo is a world class photographer, but to be honest there are a lot of great photographers out there. It takes more than just photographic expertise to lead a tour – particularly in the conditions of Iceland – and Eduardo has all of the talents, insight, and knowledge to do that, and on top of it all, he’s just a good guy who is really funny as well (a trait that was appreciated on some of the long drives between locations).

I was very impressed with Eduardo’s knowledge of the shooting locations, but also the small logistical details that surround the actual photography… such as when the last restaurant closed in a small town in a distant location (you don’t want to come back from a sunset shoot and find out you can’t eat until the next morning!). He also led the group with a firm but kind hand.. something that’s important when you’re working with six strangers with very different personalities.

And of course, his photographic expertise is beyond compare. His knowledge of composition and creating art is as amazing as is his technical abilities in both shooting and editing. He was very good about walking us thru the best way to shoot something, the right lens to capture it, and gave us detailed instructions with the things that were new to us like capturing the aurora.

All in all, I can’t say enough good things about Eduardo and Photo World Tours. He exceeded my expectations and I highly recommend him for a tour of anywhere, anytime.

Unforgettable trip to Iceland, with the company of a group that, although international, ended up being a great group, it took me with a great experience and new friends. We went with Eduardo Fuster as a guide and in addition to telling us the best places and tips for photography, we also had our talks about topics unrelated to photography, wanting to repeat
