Following multiple sold out Faroe Islands adventures, join us once again as we explore one of Europe’s most undiscovered places. This tiny collection of islands is full of moody landscapes just waiting for you to photograph!
Join us as we take you on a journey across the Faroe Islands experiencing breathtaking and unforgettable scenery: from majestic mountains, sweeping fjords and mighty waterfalls to ‘floating’ lakes and unbelievable cliffs.
As three experienced photographers & travellers we know the Faroe Islands well, and with short drives to our favourite locations, constant dedicated personal instruction from each one of us, and only 10 participants taking part, this will be a bespoke learning experience like no other!
You’ll learn how to photograph these amazing landscapes and all the tips and tricks needed to edit your images like a pro! We’ll also show you everything you need to know about your camera and its settings — whether it’s a smartphone, DSLR, or mirrorless. You’ll be on your way to mastering professional techniques in no time!
A workshop for everyone
This is an ideal workshop for any skill level — whether you’re a complete beginner or seasoned pro, this fantastic trip around the Faroe Islands will enrich your photographic experience.
What’s more, if there’s anything specific you want to learn or improve with your own photography, we can help. Just let us know what you want to work on ahead of time and we’ll do our best to accommodate your needs!
Full-day adventures, every day, with different aspects of landscape photography.
Hands-on, personal instruction at every location, no matter what level you are.
Our teaching is tailored to you and includes everything from basic camera settings and composition to panoramas, sunrise & sunset photography and, if weather permits, star and aurora photography.
Our image selection and post-processing workflow in Adobe Lightroom Classic CC and more advanced techniques like exposure blending in Adobe Photoshop CC. Try out the Adobe Photography bundle if you don’t already have it.
A unique opportunity to make new friendships and learn from your fellow photographers - and above all, we have fun!

Frequently Asked Questions
How is payment handled?
We use a third-party service called Billetto. This not only allows us secure online transactions, but we can accept numerous forms of payment from credit card to PayPal — whatever suits you best!
What about flights?
Flights to the Faroe Islands are not included, so shop around for the best deal (as always, the earlier you book, the better). You can fly with Atlantic Airways from many locations including Copenhagen, Edinburgh, Reykjavik and Bergen. Flight times vary. Let us know if you have any questions. If you feel you want to come early to get the best flights please let us know and we can help and advise.
What type of accommodation should I expect?
We’ll be staying at Hotel Føroyar, a beautiful boutique, grass-roofed, four star hotel overlooking the Faroese capital of Tórshavn. This unique and stunning hotel is actually carved into the rock face high above the Faroese capital, with all rooms getting a great view over the city and harbour! Plus how many hotels do you know that have sheep roaming around the car park and grounds?! You’ll have your own room, which can be upgraded to double use if you require it. Contact us for details!
What if the weather is bad?
The Faroe Islands sit in the middle of the Gulf Stream. While this means it never really gets too cold, the weather can be unpredictable – but this is what makes it so interesting! Wet and foggy conditions make for some fantastically moody photography! If it gets too bad, we will have a Plan B in the case of extremely severe (aka unsafe) weather, involving food and post-processing and shooting techniques. We never stop learning!
What skill levels do you teach?
We teach everyone from beginners to advanced photographers. Even if you don’t have a DSLR, we can help you get the best out of whatever camera you bring along (get in touch if you have any gear-specific questions prior to booking).
What if I need more information?
Feel free to contact us with any queries that you may have. Once you are registered, we will send out an information pack prior to the workshop with more details.
We have been partnering with Visit Faroe Islands for several years now, which allows us to access all the local people and knowledge we need, and keeps us in the know about all the best spots to visit.
