OUR PARTICIPANTS REVIEWS SPEAKS FOR THEMSELVES!
A great experience which, although a group workshop, is intimate enough that it is tailored to each individual’s specific goals and needs. The local connections that Northern Workshops have also mean that participants get to visit places that are simply not open to tourists. I returned home with a new level of confidence and enthusiasm to take my photography to the next level.
A workshop were stellar locations are presented with solid recommendations. The balance between snapshot locations and sanctuary places needing rewarding investigation was perfect.
Hans was well organized with research behind the locations of the workshops. His knowledge of composition and “the story” behind the image is outstanding!Hans and Jan both have an outstanding knowledge of the equipment being used and were able to use suggestions to help us improve our skills in photography. They asked if we needed help and were readily available when we had questions.
This trip was one of the most interesting and enriching I made in my whole life. Hans and Jan will surely take you to the most well known photo-spots, but you will manage to see a lot more. They will also stop whenever you will see a photo opportunity on the way and they will re-arrange your schedule depending on the weather (which is always an unpredictable variable in the Faroe Islands). I loved their dedication, knowledge of the locations as well as their client-friendly approach and their attention to safety. The accommodation and meals were very good and the schedule very well thought. I had a lot of fun during this trip and I would love to come back soon!
Faroe Islands is a fantastic place and the workshop was outstanding. From initial enquiry to post workshop communication, all arrangements, logistics, Hotel and meals were all excellent. An awesome place for photography and to enjoy nature. Big thanks to HC and Jan who were superb guides.
I learnt so much and my camera confidence grew and grew over our time at the Faroe Islands Workshop. Hans Christian and Jan were the perfect instructors and hosts - I’d recommend this workshop to people of all ages and abilities.
Faroe Islands is an awesome place to visit for photography and Hans Christian and Jan had arranged a superb workshop and were really good guides and instructors.
Note: This is a Google Translation from Norwegian to English.Finally, I came to the Faroe Islands, which I have long wanted. Here I met 8 people who spoke PHOTO for 5 whole days !!!! I’m not so good in English, but I understood a lot of what Hans Christian told me about, but I’m always afraid to ask in English !!! The whole course and the trip were great planned to the smallest detail and everything was, to me, absolutely perfect. The hotel, the food, the driver and Jan, who was very important to me. He was probably the only one who understood my language and it was he who helped me with the vast majority of questions. So good that he was with and “saved” the trip !! Thanks Jan !! This was a great destination and we got to stop and see all that was and take pictures of. Hans C. knew where there were motives and he was very good at finding the right places! This was a great trip for me and I met many new photovoltaics whom I admired for their photo-taking and most were very good. I personally learn a lot about seeing pictures on screen and why it will be like this. How we use shutter, aperture etc. etc. Very good trip !!!
This trip to the 2018 Photography workshop to the Faroe Isles was the Best workshop so far, friendly staff Hans & Jan most helpful, my photography can only get better as Landscape photography was definitely out of my comfort zone, I do now think that I can see the end photo with my keen eye, and almost mastered the histogram.
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!
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.
