The Faroe Islands are an archipelago of eighteen islands half way between Scotland and Iceland in the North Atlantic Ocean. Some of the most breathtaking scenery out there! Steep-sided mountains that rise out of the sea to almost 1000 meters making them the tallest cliffs in Europe, small fishing villages with grass covered roofs, huge cascading waterfalls that flow strong after the smallest rainfall, deep like fjords and black sand beaches with tidal pools scattered all around.
Each location we visit will offer a new adventure from light crested villages to the summit of Sornfelli that stands almost 2500 feet! The Islands are a true source of inspiration to anyone who visits. With the constant changing weather making every photograph unique.
During this workshop we will explore the islands of Vagar, Streymoy, Eysturoy, Kalsoy, Kunoy, Bordoy and Vidoy! It is a tour extraordinaire through the main islands of the Faroes and just a feast even from the car! All of these islands offer a unique adventure and beautiful 360° views at every corner and traveling through the tunnels (often under sea) which interconnect these islands.
Expect to travel chasing the light EACH DAY! We can't expect to hold an itinerary steadfast without changes. Each day we will go where we need to to hit all of our landmark locations and at a time that work best for each location. But weather travels overhead fast so we can go begin a tunnel where the sky is clear and exit the short tunnel with gray skies minutes later!
I will do my best watching the clouds and light to get us in the best position possible for Sunset golden hours and mid-day light shaft photography moments! The hunt for great light is the best part of the adventure of photographing the Faroe Islands, I love it!
