Join me to this spectacular place known for its breathtaking landscapes and remote, long forgotten atmosphere and Viking culture.
With multiple photo trips to the Faroe Islands, I have come to know the place and how to capture it’s essence. It’s one of my favourite photography locations in the world!
April is the transitional season between winter and summer. The tops of the mountains will be snow-capped and the grass in the lower parts deep yellow. The weather is rough at this time of the year, but the atmosphere and mood are unmatched. Traditional, grass roof villages, churches, wind swept islands and towering sea cliffs are a few of the unique landmarks of the Faroes.
We will spend 8 days exploring and photographing the country by car and boat and on foot.
This is not an ‘easy workshop’. Be prepared for harsh weather conditions. Most of the photo spots require a short to medium length hike. A general level of fitness is therefore preferable. Your camera equipment should be up for these conditions too. We will spend a couple of nights on a remote island, away from phone signal and civilisation. You can expect to discover places no foreigners have been seen before. Abandoned village, ruins, hidden waterfalls, mountain tops and sea cliffs. It is going to be WILD!
The group is limited to 5 people. This will allow me to teach each and every one of you and meet your demands and answer your questions and keep the group atmosphere friendly and personal.
We will also spend a night with a local friend of mine, who will share her knowledge of the unique Faroese culture as well as cuisine. She is also an outdoor guide and will join us to some of the remoter locations.
Each day we will venture to a new location and upon return to civilisation, I will go through post-production and editing part of the photography workflow.
Watch my Faroe Islands Adventure Photography On Location episodes for a taste of what you’ll experience and capture during our time together:
This workshop is as much about going on an adventure and having a great experience as it is about learning photography. I believe that experience is more important than the perfect shot. So, my goal is to give you unique and possibly challenging experiences so your photographs will be filled with real stories that you’ll tell for years to come when you show them to your friends and family.
This workshop is not a step by step guide on how to capture the picture perfect postcard shot… because… well, it’s been captured already. Let’s photograph something unique, fresh and with our own visual style!

The accommodation is included in the price. It’s a beautiful traditional Faroese House by the marina
We will stay at the marina in the cozy traditional Faroese house that was built in 1875. It’s 20 meters from the ocean, near the capital of the Faroe Islands: Torshavn. It’s a 20 minute walk to the center of town.
We have the entire house to ourselves. The house has 3 bedrooms with 5 beds and 1 bathroom. Some of us will have to share a room. We will organise that once we arrive.
The house will be our base. We will be returning here in the evenings to spend the night in a warm and cozy place and dry off our clothes, charge batteries and prepare for the next day.
Lunch will be in form of lunch packets on location.
Alternatively, restaurants are a short 10min drive / 25min walk away in the centre of Torshavn.
2 of the 6 nights we will spend with a friend of mine on Mykines. She will take us on hikes to the puffins and tell us about traditional Faroese culture. The accommdation on the island is a tradtional Faroese House. Transport in and out will be by helicopter (all included in Workshop price).
There are regular direct flights from Denmark, England, Iceland and Norway year round. Copenhagen Atlantic Airways has several departures every day and fly from Billund twice to five times a week depending on the season. Click to book flights.
