Iceland model trip ( NSFW !!)

This is an old one, but still deserves a blog.  I went to Iceland just over a year and a half ago and dragged along the awesome Natasha Felix to model for me.  We went as a group of six, and I did a few shots with the other people on the trip too, Ponyo, Kaz and Vik.  I cannot overstate how awesome Iceland is, every photographer should go there at least once.  It's not that expensive to fly there, but accommodation and food IS expensive.  Gear used for me was a Fuji XT-1, 16mm 1.4 ( I used this ALOT ) and 90mm f2, 56mm 1.2.  Most of that gear is weather sealed and that was super important, as the weather in Iceland changes on a dime and I was often shooting in inclement weather.  Lastly, a big thank you to my models for being incredibly brave, as it was bloody cold out there and they did a stellar job.
