Iceland Volcano Photography & Aerial Video

A Collection of Iceland Volcano Photography and Aerial Lava Footage from the Eruption in Fagradalsfjall.


Capturing an Iceland volcano eruption has been a bucket list photography subject for me since 2010. Back then I could never dream of visiting a place like Iceland or becoming a full-time landscape photographer. I am so thankful to share this adventure with you all! In the video you can check out the adventure with some dramatic aerial volcano footage and a tutorial on how I captured all of my images. Below you will find a collection of my favorite photos from this incredible experience.



Heres two photographs captured with my drone. These two images required taking a panorama and also exposure blending to deal with the extreme dynamic range of the lava.

Here’s an image looking straight down at the lava field and the explosions. I loved seeing these intricate patterns and textures from above.

Two more top down drone shots of the iceland volcano from above. To me the image on the left looks like a dragon and the photo on the right looks like some kind of skull or creature. These two photos ended up being my absolute favorite from the shoot.

Some of these abstract patterns were really fun to play around with using the drone. Perhaps getting a little too close in some cases, check out the video above to see what I mean.

I really hope you all enjoyed checking out this collection and video. If you would like a print or to license one of these photographs please contact me here. You can also check out some of my other iceland photography here.
