The Faroe Islands

18th - 22nd March, 2023 - with Paul Gallagher and Michael Pilkington - £2,450.00 (£245.00 Deposit) - Now Booking

This workshop is aimed at you experiencing and photographing some of the most stunning scenery these islands have to offer with steep sided mountains that rise out of the sea to almost 1000 meters.

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 beach­es with hun­dreds of tidal pools and the tallest cliffs in Europe, and small Faroese fish­ing vil­lages with grass cov­ered roofs that are found all over these islands. Every day out, and each loca­tion we go to is a new adven­ture and 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 and Michael Pilk­ing­ton who have explored these areas exten­sive­ly with their own cam­eras. 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 breath tak­ing views round every cor­ner or through each of the tun­nels which inter­con­nect these islands.

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 with post-pro­cess­ing tuition so that you can return home with exhi­bi­tion qual­i­ty images ready to print. We believe the Faroe Islands are a real land­scape pho­tog­ra­pher’s paradise!

As well as tak­ing in the amaz­ing views from the fjord sides and over the clifftops, there will be plen­ty of oppor­tu­ni­ty to take your time and explore how you want to present the Faroe Islands in your own work. We will vis­it the pop­u­lar loca­tions on the islands, but we will also encour­age you to devel­op your own style by break­ing the mold and try­ing dif­fer­ent approach­es. This in itself can be huge­ly exciting!
