10 days in Iceland with Inscape Photo Tour has been one of the great trips for me. Martin and Jan opened a door to post-processing world that I never knew could make your photos go from good to wow. Martin and Jan both are passionate about photography and same passion reflects in their exemplary efforts to make sure every participant became friends with their camera and lenses and had great pictures of Iceland. Visiting Ice cave was one of the coolest experiences for most of us on the trip. Thanks to Martin for going an extra mile to reschedule Ice cave tour with another company earlier than the planned one as weather was getting miserable.  As an added benefit, everyone in the group was enthusiastic and fun to travel with.

Iceland is beautiful country and exploring it with Inscape photography tour was a perfect fit. Now, whenever I take a picture whether phone or camera, I am always thinking “Have I clipped the highlights in the sky or how can I make this composition better” ūüôā¬† Hope to explore another part of the world with Inscape Photo Tours in future.

“I had a wonderful experience of joining Martin and Jan on a recent Iceland photography tour.¬†The entire tour was well planned, good accommodations, safe transportation and spacious cars for 2 small groups. Jan and Martin provided knowledgeable in photography as well as the locations for the best ways to get amazing shots. It was a pleasant, fun, a lot of memories photo trip, I enjoyed¬†every moment!”

I was a bit nervous regarding the extent of the physical and extreme environmental challenges of photography in Iceland at this time of year.¬† However, Martin’s planning and attention to the details of the itinerary ensured a very enjoyable trip.¬†¬† Each and every day was fun and filled with learning regardless of what the weather dished out. Both Martin and Jan were committed to making sure everyone came away with great photos and the knowledge to continue in their photography journey.¬† If we weren’t outdoors on a shooting adventure, we were indoors learning how to post process our photos to their greatest potential. Regardless of the level of ability, experience or camera equipment, everyone was equally inspired and encouraged by both Martin and Jan with genuine enthusiasm for our learning. I will treasure the memories of this adventure!

I am thankful that i was able to participate in your photo tour in Iceland. I was both a great learning experience and a chance for me to get out of my comfort zone. The student to teacher ratio was excellent! You and Jan were able to spend time with us, teaching, correcting, and sharing with us your expertise. I am glad that aside from the technical aspects which confuse me sometimes, you also taught us the value of the story behind the picture. I really appreciated that!

Just returned from Czech photo tour organized by Martin Bisof . Highly recommended. Imagine having a young, enthusiastic photographer as a friend in Prague who meets you at the airport, carefully plans your tour, books cozy little hotels, knows the best spots , takes care of all your needs. Four very different participants from all over the world had an immediate click. Martin is very knowledgeable in photography, gear and after processing. Always eager to give an advice. What I liked best is his subtle taste and sensitivity, the ‚Äúcleanliness‚ÄĚ in his composition, sophisticated simplicity. We were not so lucky with the ‚Äúright‚ÄĚ , photographic weather. The mist was too heavy in Moravian fields, the sun did not rise over the Prague roofs on the right day, etc,etc. And yet everyone was happy thanks to Martin‚Äôs good humor and optimism.

Great experience with the tour with Martin and Dominika. They have very good eye for the best vantage points. They were also very patient helping my wife with her camera settings and composition. Highly recommended.

I have been in Prague before and have taken many “tourist” pictures, but on this photo tour, I was not a tourist. I was a photographer (and Martin had to occasionally remind me of that. ) This time, I took photos that were different from those that millions of tourists take every day.
Our tour group visited several places that tourists don’t even know about, and when we shot in the popular tourist locations, we were shooting photos in a different way – seeing the tourist sites through the eyes of a photographer. We looked at details, patterns, and interesting compositions in the Moravian landscapes, and in the many different types of architecture and streets across the various cities and towns. We even photographed some ordinary, mundane things and turned them into fascinating photographs. One afternoon, when it started to rain during our shoot, we found something else to photograph and came away with creative, unusual pictures. I even captured a photo of a “ghost” lurking around the Old Town Hall tower.
Some new techniques for me were: shooting in very poorly-lit locations, shooting long exposures, and using ND filters. I also learned new Photoshop techniques that make pictures pop out more.
Overall, the tour was an exciting experience and I have greatly benefited from it. I am not a tourist. I am a photographer!

As an experienced traveler and¬†photographer but with little time available,¬†what I look¬†for is to be in the right place at the right time. With Martin I found exactly that…and even more!¬†The trip was¬†perfectly organized.¬†Martin is¬†a nice person all round, a first rate photographer and¬†knows every corner of his country, the best¬†season and the best time¬†to photograph it.

In my group there were also less experienced people and I could appreciate how patient and kind was Martin in offering his expert help and answering all kind of questions. He cares that you become a better photographer.

Thanks for everything, I had a great time and a lot of fun. I’m¬†looking forward to do another trip with you! ūüôā

“Attending the workshop in Iceland 2017 with Inscape Photo Tours was one of the most unforgettable experiences of my life. Jan and Martin are not only excellent photographers, but also great friends. They do much more than teaching you the techniques and art of photography. They know how to inspire and motivate the attendants. More than a group, it became a supportive team. I had lots of fun and I¬īll never forget it.”

It was a photography trip for the history books!  Each day was filled with portfolio worthy images, a perfect combination of destination, subject, lighting and composition.  Martin and Jan provided amazing guidance both at location and in post-editing to help me take the best images ever.  The trip was filled with adventure, laughs and thrills.  The memories and friendships our entire group made will last a lifetime.   I’m looking forward to many more photographic adventures with Inscape Photo!

Inscape Photo Tours provided one fantastic trip. Jan and Martin took us to the beauty of Iceland and we spent twelve days with ourselves and our camera shutter‚Äôs being busy catching the world thru their eyes. ¬†No matter what your experience level or equipment that you brought, they could both help you. ¬†Trip more than met my expectations. ¬†Personally, before this trip I primarily took pictures of birds and wildlife. ¬†Taking pictures of landscape and understanding Martin and Jan’s desire to create composition in your picture was ‚Äėeye opening‚Äô for me. I‚Äôm truly glad I went on this trip. ¬†At the age of 72 I was able to keep up with the ‚Äėgroup‚Äô and they pushed us to have as many experiences with our camera as possible. ¬†My time with my camera will be better, in the future, because of what I learned and experienced with Inscape during this trip.

I’m not sure where to begin because this trip was just about perfect. The actual scenery was beautiful, the weather was mild (by Iceland standards), the hotels were well chosen, the food was very good, the photography opportunities were ideal, and the fellowship of the participants was an unexpected bonus. Actually, the entire trip felt like a bonus because we were uncertain what to expect going in. I’m pleased to say that probably every aspect of this trip exceeded our expectations.  Martin is an excellent tour leader. It was apparent that he paid careful attention to all the details necessary to make the trip successful. Both Martin and Jan are excellent photographers and guides. Their personalities and styles fit together well.

We enjoyed the tour so much that we are planning on joining Inscape again in 2019 in New Zealand. We would highly recommend Inscape and trust them for any photo tour!
