Only one workshop per year.

We only host one workshop to the Faroe Islands each year to ensure the highest quality on each workshop. We strive to make the best schedules for the workshop - we find the right balance between seeing as much as possible but still have enough time at each location for exploring and 1-on-1 time with the instructors.


During the workshop, we will visit some of the Faroe Islands best locations, including the Islands Vágar, where we will hike along lake Leitisvatn, also known as ‘the lake above the sea’. At Leitisvatn we will have the opportunity to shoot Bøsdalafossur waterfall and the ‘sharks tooth’.

On of the “biggest” locations is the island Mykines where we can find the famous Puffin bird and also some of the most dramatic scenerary. We cannot promise we will visit Mykines as it’s very depend on a good weather window for both the trip to and from Mykines. We maximize our chances by booking spots on the ferry for all the days on the workshop.

We will visit the Island Eysturoy, with its winding roads at Funningur and the dramatic gorge and shore line at Gjôgv. A prime spot for a long-exposure photographer!

Tjørnuvik is another key location. It is home to a stunning long beach and on the way we will stop by the famous waterfall, Fossá.


All participants arrives a day ahead of the workshop with a dinner in the evening and a welcome class. The next day we take off early from the hotel and we will be on the road 10-14 hours each day. Northern light or aurora borealis is possible on the Faroe Islands if the conditions are right but it’s very rare in May - we will of course grab any chance of photographing northern light.

One or two of the evenings we will have a class room session after dinner where we will demonstrate our workflow process in Adobe Lightroom and also have time for individual help in regards to post-processing.

The schedules may change due to the changing weather conditions.


This workshop was outstanding. From the initial enquiry to the post workshop sharing of images everything was handled efficiently and professionally. We covered a huge amount of ground on the Faroes making the most of every minute but I have no regrets over the early mornings or late nights! I have many hours of processing to catch up on but already I feel that I have more quality images than I ever thought I would.

We have tried to make everything as simple as possible when it comes to our pricing of this workshop. While you are on the Faroe Islands everything is included - all nights at the hotel, all meals and beverages (not minibar or bar), tourism taxes, all transportation, etc.

The price is € 2,995 and is paid by a € 300 deposit within 7 days of booking and then the rest within 3 months or at the latest in February 2020. Payment is made by credit card or bank transfer.

We are staying at the best hotel on the Faroe Islands which is the 4.5 star Hotel Føroyar and everyone is getting their own room. We work together with 3 very good restaurants in Tórshavn that has a wide range of different dishes for everyone needs.

Your booking is confirmed when we have received the deposit. If you for some reason want to cancel your booking we will do everything in our power to find a new participant for the spot but a full cancellation (minus transactions fees) is only made when the place is taken by a new participant.

The only thing we don’t include is airfare to and from the Faroe Islands as we have participants from all over the world - last workshop we had participants from Norway, Denmark, England and USA. Airfare tickets to the Faroe Islands are fairly cheap and you can get round tickets for as low as € 160 from Copenhagen, Denmark to Vágar, Faroe Islands. 

Pricing is fixed and payment must be made in euros. We are running all payment methods without any transactions fees at our end.

  • Participants will get full access for our e-learning portal.

  • Participants will get access to our interactive map with all our "secret" locations and much more.

  • Facebook group for all participants and instructors to share informations, images, tutorials and much more.

Everyone can attend our workshops!

Don't worry, no matter what skills and gear you have you can attend our workshops and get the maximum out of it!

A good health and being fit for hiking on a few steep hills is a must for this workshop as we are going to do a few hikes to get to the right spots. We are not in any way going to hike/climb on mountains - we will be following paths or else most moist/wet surfaces such as grass and moss.

We try not to set to many requirements for the workshop but instead recommendations - a strong recommendation is a set of good leather hiking boots that goes above the ankles to protect the joints.

In regards to camera gear we do recommend a high quality tripod system that can withstand a bit of wind without moving. When it comes to camera gear we mostly recommend to have a good variety of lenses preferably from the range around 16mm to 200mm.

The key sentence when it comes to gear is portability - that means you will need to have a good camera backpack which can hold all of your gear and is easy to access. 

A full gear recommendation list will be send out with the confirmation mail after you sign up. If you have any questions about this before signing up don't hesitate to contact us.

The best workshop I have attended so far.
The instructor was very well prepared. Very good introduction before workshop to participant. The hotel was superb and the same was all meals. Long days, but we visited many good locations.
