FAROE ISLANDS WORKSHOP (April 22nd - 27th, 2018)

Our 5 day workshop to the Faroe Islands is by far our biggest workshop ever. We have made a strong workshop which will carry every participant through topics as landscape-, wildlife-, night photography and much more. We have made sure that this workshop includes everything, which means we are checking in to the best 4.5 star hotel, have rented a 9 seater mini-bus, have included food and beverages, pre-scouted locations, multiple classes and critique sessions, and most important a thrilling vacation where you will enjoy the wonderful hobby of photography. 

We are two highly skilled and motivated instructors and as we only have room for 7 participants that gives the opportunity for loads of one-on-one guidance from the instructors.

A part of our workshop is also to embrace the amazing nature that still can be found at these unique locations. Faroe Islands has everything when it comes to nature - you will see amazing mountain landscapes, beautiful waterfalls and streams, remote locations without much human interference, outstanding wildlife (especially bird wildlife), astrophotography and much more. The main focus of the workshop is landscape photography and the different aspects within that genre.

Our next workshop to the Faroe Islands will be held from April 22nd, 2018 to April 27th, 2018 - both days included. Arrival is on April 22nd, 2018 and this night at the hotel is included in the price.

Contact us before signing up to learn more about bringing a family member with you.

The only time you will need your wallet on the Faroe Islands is if you arrive early or want to stay a few nights more, buy a souvenir, extra drinks or some snacks!

Requirements and recommendations:

A good health and being fit for hiking on steep hills is a must for this workshop as we are going to do quite a bit of hiking 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.

The gear requirements for this workshop is of course decent camera gear such as a good DSLR/mirrorless camera body (not necessary a 35mm full frame body), a good variety of lenses - from the range around 16mm - 200mm on a full frame body, a good steady tripod and probably most important some good personal outdoor gear. 

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 requirement and 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 instructors are using a Canon EOS 5Ds, a Canon EOS 5D mrk. III and a Nikon D610 body along with a line of professionel lenses from both Canon, Nikon, Tamron and Sigma.

We are not able to know every camera body but we are extremely skilled in both Canon and Nikon DSLR full frame bodies and as you register which bodies you bring to the workshop we will do some homework before the workshop.

Testimonials from previous participants:

We have an excellent rating from previous participant that have attended our 5-day Faroe Islands workshops. We have selected a few that you can read below and the rest you can see on our dedicated testimonials site.

Absolutely fantastic week. Nice people, very well planned program and awesome locations.
— Morten (Norway) - participant Faroe Islands 2017 workshop

I am a beginner photographer and avid traveler that was looking to grow my skills in a new and exciting environment. The Northern Workshop exceeded my expectations for both my personal growth and the overall travel experience.

This workshop was a meticulously planned yet flexible to the needs of the group and the ever changing weather on the Faroe Islands. I learned from both the individual and group coaching on composition, technical application, and post production as well as from my fellow photographers in the group.

The pricing structure was an incredible value in that it included everything - lodging, meals, transportation, pre-planning and educational material before, during and after the workshop. Lastly, it was the diversity of the group in both experience and nationality was the pleasant surprise.

I made lasting friendships and learned more about Danish, Norwegian, and English cultures on a personal level. Overall the workshop is highly recommended!
— Douglas (USA) - participant Faroe Islands 2017 workshop

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.
— Lindsay (England) - participant Faroe Islands 2017 workshop
