Sold Out !
( 5 Days and 6 Nights exploring the Faroe Islands )
November 30th - December 6th 2020
The Faroe islands are rugged, raw, and beautiful Islands in the Northern Atlantic situated between Iceland and Norway. This epic landscape is filled with waterfalls, epic cliffs overlooking seastacks, fjords and quint villages nestled in picturesque green valleys. This workshop will be lead by myself and inspiring youtuber and amazing photographer Mads Peter Iversen.
Mads will be serving as both an instructor and guide as he has shot the Faroes extensively and speaks the language making for a much smoother experience for our group.
Day 1 - Arrival day
We will be picking up everyone as their flights arrive, and transporting them to the hotel. This will be our Orientation and meet and greet day. We will have presentations, talk about our plans for the workshop, and share other important information before the workshop begins. We will head out and have a meal together, and catch some much needed shut eye
Days 2-6 - The Adventure
Over the course of the next 5 days we will be hiking, adventuring, and photographing our way around the Faroe Islands. During the shorter hours of the winter months, we will have shoot-able light all day, which means we will be out from dawn till dusk. Should the opportunity present itself we will also chase any chance for Aurora we may have. Do note however than the Faroe Islands are well known for their relentless cloud cover, so we will have to get lucky to get a chance for Aurora. We will have several post processing sessions throughout the workshop, sharing workflows and helping the participants with their own processing. On our last evening of the workshop we will be having our farewell dinner together as a group, and share once last meal and drink together.
Day 7 - Departure day
This will be our goodbye day, During this day we will be ferrying everyone to the airport to catch their flights.

Whats NOT included:
Food and drinks during the trip
Travel expenses to and from the Faroe Islands
From a physical standpoint, there will quite a bit of hiking on this trip. Hikes reach anywhere from short yet steep hikes, to around 7 miles round trip yet flat. The trails can be uneven and slick in some places. For this reason those with heart issues, Knee or leg issues, or any other problems that prohibit longer hike ability, will have a difficult time with this workshop. I will say however, that the payoff for these hikes are very much worth the effort! If any location is out of your comfort zone, you’re more than welcome to shoot another location, stay at the hotel and rest, or wait until we get to another more comfortable location for you.
From a photography skill level point of view, everyone is welcome! There is no need to be an advanced photographer by any means. We usually have a good mix of mostly intermediate photographers, a few advanced, and a few beginners.
What the trip is like
Before the workshop begins, we’ll start a new Facebook group just for attendees. You’ll meet everyone in the group (virtually) before we leave and be able to ask questions and prepare.
During this trip we will be photographing epic Sea cliffs, Sea stacks, Immense waterfalls, quaint villages, sea birds, scenic Fjords and much more.
Weather will play a HUGE role in this workshop. We will be monitoring weather patterns closely, which will have a large impact on each days Itinerary. For that reason our itinerary will be very flexible, giving us the best possible situation for going home with the best images possible.
This is not a lazy vacation. This is serious, sleep-when-you’re-dead style photography. We will be shooting during the extended hours of the late evening and early morning.
Each day is different. If we are given dramatic storm clouds, our shooting hours can be greatly extended through the day. Also know that the Faroe Islands are known for their un predictable and often extreme weather conditions. We should be ready for and can expect to have some stormy weather during our trip.
