Resource Travel and 500px are happy to announce that we will be bringing you along with us as we explore the most incredible and inspirational locations on the planet. Our first team adventure kicks off tomorrow in the landscape dreamland of Iceland! Our friends at Guide to Iceland have helped create an epic itinerary that should keep our jaws on the ground for our eight day adventure. We will be showing you the rugged and almost untouched beauty of this European island through the eyes of well-known local photographer and guide, Iurie Belegurschi. With one look of his photos, it’s easy to see why Belegurschi has amassed a Facebook following of over 750k followers. If you have ever obsessed over photos of Iceland’s volcanos, ice caves, or waterfalls, chances are you have seen Belegurschi’s stunning photos.
Resource Travel will be represented by me, Michael Bonocore, your fearless editor-in-chief. 500px will be represented by the only Russian tougher than Ivan Drago, the co-founder and current Chief Photography Officer, Evgeny Tchebotarev. We just bought a brand new DJI Phantom 3 from our friends at Drones Made Easy (thanks for the quick shipping guys!) for some incredible aerial footage…maybe we will even find a volcano to fly over. Sony was kind enough to coordinate an early morning pickup of the new Sony A7rII from Mike’s Camera (who rerouted it last minute to my local store here in Northern California), which will ensure that I can get my hands on the most sought after camera in the world while still making my 1:00pm flight tomorrow. Thanks for bending over backwards Sony and Mike’s Camera!
So, we will have lots of fun new toys to play with (and possibly break), but it will all be worth it to take you along with us for the ride as we explore the majestic landscapes of Iceland with the photographer who knows it best. Follow along with our journey on our social networks, listed below.
