This workshop is aimed at you experiencing and photographing the breath taking and dramatic beauty the Faroe Islands has to offer with steep sided mountains that rise out of the sea to almost 1000 meters and lush green valleys formed by volcanic activity and glaciers many thousands of years ago.

The Faroe Islands are a Dan­ish arch­i­pel­ago of eigh­teen islands nes­tled between the Nor­we­gian Sea and the Atlantic Ocean and lies half way between Nor­way and Ice­land. The islands have deep fjords that stretch for miles, huge cas­cad­ing water­falls, small rugged black vol­canic beach­es with hun­dreds of tidal pools and the tallest cliffs in Europe. Dot­ted around the islands on the edge of the sea are small Faroese fish­ing vil­lages with grass cov­ered roofs that ooze with char­ac­ter and charm. Every day out, and each loca­tion we go to will be a new adven­ture, and if weath­er allows we will even make the dri­ve into the heart of the moun­tains to the sum­mit of Sorn­fel­li that stands almost 2500 feet above the fjords below.

The islands we vis­it are sure to be inspi­ra­tional and you will be in the safe hands of pro­fes­sion­al land­scape pho­tog­ra­phers Paul Gal­lagher FRPS and Michael Pilk­ing­ton FRPS who have explored these areas exten­sive­ly over the years. Dur­ing this work­shop we will explore the islands of Vagar, Strey­moy, Eystur­oy, Bor­doy and the island far­thest north, Vidoy, all of which offer unique expe­ri­ences and astound­ing views round every cor­ner and through each of the tun­nels which inter­con­nect these islands. Because of where the Faroe Islands are sit­u­at­ed, the weath­er is always tran­sient which cre­ates amaz­ing light that trav­els through the green val­leys and over the steep sided mountains. 

You will be spend­ing as much time as pos­si­ble out with your cam­era and we will be on hand to offer you exten­sive 1 to 1 tuition that will include tech­ni­cal aspects of land­scape pho­tog­ra­phy as well mak­ing the best com­po­si­tions of this amaz­ing place. If time allows, dur­ing our time on the Faroe Islands Paul and Michael will ded­i­cate time to review­ing your images and also help­ing you get the most from your cam­era files. We believe the Faroe Islands are a real land­scape pho­tog­ra­pher’s paradise!
