FAROE ISLANDS PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOP
DRAMATIC SEA CLIFFS, PANORAMIC VISTAS, FISHING VILLAGES
19th to 26th May 2020
21st to 29th August 2021
In a remote part of the Norwegian Sea, north of Scotland, sits an archipelago of 18 islands known as the Faroes. With a population of just 50,000 people, this oasis is cold, wet and windy. But don't let this deter you from joining us on this unique adventure. The remoteness and raw beauty is a landscape photographers dream.
You'll spend a week here on this Faroe Islands Photography Workshop exploring the islands with me. Each day we'll do small day trips to the various landscape locations that the Faroes will soon be famous for - waterfalls plunging over sea cliffs; rocky sea stacks pounded by rough seas; pretty little churches sitting amongst ever-green fields.
YOUR FAROE ISLANDS PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOP HIGHLIGHTS INCLUDE:
- The iconic Mulafossur Waterfall
- The spectacular lighthouse of Kalsoy
- The famous Saksun Church
- The spectacular Fossa waterfall
- The island of Mykines for puffins
Arriving from Copenhagen, we'll be there to greet you at the airport on the Faroe Islands before taking you in our private vehicle to your private hotel room at Hotel.
From here you can relax or wander around the quaint town of Tórshavn, the capital of the Faroe.
We'll meet for a drink before a yummy dinner in house so you can get to know the other participants. An early night for those who wish before our workshop starts the following day.
Day Two - Eight
Each day we'll head out after breakfast for half and full day explorations of these amazing islands. Your itinerary will depend on the weather as we look to get to the right places at the right times. You'll be chauffeur driven around in luxury van as we search for amazing photographic opportunities.
Your expert leader and Master Photographer Tom Putt with his extensive research and experience on the islands will know all the best places for your photography. You'll visit the iconic Mulafossur Waterfall plunging off the sea cliffs directly into the ocean; the spectacular lighthouse of Kalsoy; the Saksun Church; the famous Fossa waterfall; you'll travel on ferry across to the island of Mykines to photograph the lighthouse and puffins that nest on the island, and so much more.
With seven full days to explore these islands you'll see everything this amazing place has to offer.
Enjoy a well-earned sleep in before checking out. We'll drive you out to the airport to catch your flight home or for your future onward travels...
