Getting Glacial with Sam Barker

Photographer Sam Barker and his team travelled to the southern shores of Iceland to the largest glacier in Europe, Vatnajökull  Meeting Sam through a good friend of mine, here in New York and getting to hear about this spectacular scenery and dream like trip, I couldn't wait to see the photos and of course do a little feature on the ol'blog. The shoot in conjunction with Harrods and Men’s Health took place in the natural ice caves that form within the glacier. Now these caves come and go in a matter of days and are pretty volatile - making finding the perfect location to shoot, somewhat tricky to say they least. 

Nonetheless, this shoot is something that even Elsa would be proud of yes that’s a Frozen reference. With lights clamped to the sides of the ice rocks and just a dingy to manoeuvre along the river which slowly precipitated as the cave melted, not a moment was spared to capture the perfect moment in this exceptional shoot. Crystallised luminous blue hues in one of the most naturally beautiful settings. Over a day and a half locations were set up both inside the caves as well as on top of the glacier, resulting in a pretty spectacular spread.
