Faroe Islands

Faroe Islands

Remote and mysterious. Rugged and dramatic – yet so beautiful.
The Faroe Islands have a magnetic attraction for landscape photographers.

Isolated in the Atlantic Ocean halfway between Norway and Iceland, National Geographic named the Faroe Islands the most authentic and unspoiled group of islands in the world. This comes as no surprise to us.
Battered by the elements, towering cliffs rise from the deep sea.
Huge waves are constantly pounding the shoreline, creating amazing formations.
Dynamic, constantly changing light and weather makes these islands magical for photography – you can experience 4 seasons in an hour!

Join us on this 8 day photography workshop to visit this magical place in July when the islands are stunningly green and fresh, Puffins can be found, and the temperature is comfortable.
