FAROE ISLANDS PHOTO WORKSHOP
Next workshops in April and May 2019

Our 5-day photography workshop to the Faroe Islands is by far our biggest and strongest workshop. We have made a strong workshop which will carry every participant through topics as landscape-, wildlife-, night photography and much more.

This workshop is for the passionated photographer who wants to go on an adventure with fellow photographers and share the same passion together.

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.

We have included all expenses in the price while you are on the Faroe Islands!

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.

We have two upcoming workshops to the Faroe Islands in 2019!

Our April 2019 workshop is being held from the 20th of April 2019 to the 25th of April 2019. This workshop is our classic Faroe Islands workshop with many different locations and focus on landscape photography. We recommend this workshop for all types of photographers and especially "first timers" to the Faroe Islands.

Our May 2019 workshop is being held from the 19th of May 2019 to the 24th of May 2019. This workshop is primarily meant as a "follow up" workshop where we go a bit more in depth with the locations and also we will have a bit of a focus on both landscape and wildlife photography.

We all arrive on the Faroe Islands a day ahead so that we are ready for the workshop to begin the next morning.

If it looks like it's gonna be a nice sunset, we might sneak out for that and get a head start on the workshop.

Day 2 - Gásadalur, Saksun & Tjørnuvík

The day starts out with a welcome session at the hotel at 8 AM.

We start out with 3 of our prime spots for landscape photography on the Faroe Islands - Gásadalur, Saksun and Tjørnuvík. All locations are known for they unique landscapes and the drive to the different locations is equally impressive. 

We will also visit the famous waterfall Fossá which we will be photographing twice during the workshop - from both the Streymoy and Eysturoy side.

We will end the day with a lovely dinner in Tórshavn and then a sunset shoot at a location near the hotel.

Day 3 - eysturoy

Another full day photographing the wonderful island Eysturoy which has some of the most beautiful scenes with winding roads.

We will be taking the road along Funningurfjøður which leads up to a long winding road at Funningur. From there we will be going to another favorite which is Gjógv. Here you can see a massive gorge that is an iconic image on the Faroe Islands.

The way back takes us through the pass to Eiði then down the coast to the Fossá waterfall from the Eysturoy side.

We will have a nice dinner in Tórshavn followed by a sunset shoot.

The day will end with a night shoot at Saksun if the weather allows it or else we will do a night shoot of the cityscape above Tórshavn.

If we were out all night on day 3 to shoot stars then we will have a late start at around 10-11 AM. 

We will have a full day at the main island of Streymoy where we will stop multiple times along route 10 from the hotel which gives us some incredible high views of the mountains. 

Locations for the day are Norðradalur, Saksun and Tjørnuvík.

In the evening we will have dinner in Tórshavn and then a class room session with post-processing in Adobe Lightroom.

Day 5 - Vágar

The day will start with a sunrise shoot along route 10 near the hotel.

One our last day on the Faroe Islands we will go on our by far longest hike. The hike out to Sørvágsvatn is a key component of our workshop and the 1 hour hike is well worth it! 

It's the famous location with the lake above the sea which throws most photographers of their "bearings" as it is so massive.

We will also revisit Gásadalur as it is one of the best locations for a good waterfall image.

The day will end with a long class room session where we will go through the post-processing workflow again.

The workshop ends at 10:00 AM and we will be able to provide a lift to the airport for the ones leaving the same day.

The day starts out with a welcome session at the hotel at 8 AM.

We start out with the "heavy guns" drawn and have a full day on Mykines which is the most famous island on the Faroe Islands.

You will be able incredible wildlife including puffins and also incredible landscapes.

This day may be moved around as the ferry doesn't sail in bad weather but we are prioritizing the Mykines trip. We have a backup plan if Mykines is unavailable due to bad weather.

We will end the day with a lovely dinner in Tórshavn and then possibly a sunset shoot.

Day 3 - eysturoy & Streymoy

We will have an early start and see some of the best landscape locations the Faroe Islands has to offer.

We will be "jumping" around on the islands Eysturoy and Streymoy where we will visit Saksun, Gjógv, Eiði and Tjørnuvík. The roads around Funningur are just incredible and can give some of the best compositions with the winding roads.

You will also be able to view the famous Fossá waterfall.

We will have a nice dinner in Tórshavn followed by a sunset shoot.

The day will end with a night shoot at Saksun if the weather allows it or else we will do a night shoot of the cityscape above Tórshavn.

Day 4 - Borðoy & eysturoy

If we were out all night on day 3 to shoot stars then we will have a late start at around 10-11 AM. 

We will visit one of our new locations on day 4 which is the island Borðoy. We will also take a hike up Eiðikollur on Eysturoy where we will get some incredible views.

There are some amazing landscape scenes at Borðoy with all the smaller islands all around and steep cliffs.

We have a bit of driving back and forth to Borðoy and therefor we will have a late dinner in Tórshavn and then a class room session.

Day 5 - Vágar

Last full day on the Faroe Islands and we will of course start the day with a sunrise shoot on a new location on Streymoy.

We have saved some of the best locations for the last day! We will go to Vágar for a vist to Gásadalur and then the hike out to Sørvágsvatn along the lake Leitisvatn.

We prioritize to have enough time at Sørvágsvatn and Leitisvatn as there are a ton of different locations to capture. The instructors will split up so you have different options with what you want to start with.

On the way back to the hotel we will have time to visit one or two locations.

The day will end with a long class room session where we will go through the post-processing workflow again.

Day 6 - The goodbyes :(

Yes, a part of this workshop is unfortunately to say goodbye at some point - whether we like it or not.

We need a bit of feedback from you as a participants and then we want to make sure that everyone is connected with each other. 

The workshop ends at 10:00 AM and we will be able to provide a lift to the airport for the ones leaving the same day.

We are including everything while you are on the Faroe Islands!

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

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.

It's possible to upgrade to a double room if you are two joining the workshop or if you want to bring a family member to the Faroe Islands. This will lower the price a bit if you are two joining the workshop and if you are bringing a family member we have a great deal for you. Please contact us directly for these prices.

We do not include 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 extremely cheap and you can get round tickets for as low as € 160 from Copenhagen, Denmark.

Payment is made in full by bank transfer or credit card. We are running all payment methods without any transactions fees at our end. Your booking is confirmed when we have received payment. 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 is only made when the place is taken by a new participant. 

If you have any questions about our pricing, payment or anything else in this regard don't hesitate to contact us directly.

Pricing is fixed and payment must be made in euros.

We get a lot of questions about gear requirements for the workshop which is of course very understandable.

Don't worry, no matter what gear you have you can attend this workshop and get the full out of it!

A good health and being fit for hiking on 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 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.
