Faroe Islands Photography Workshops

 Faroe Islands Photography Workshops with Steve Walton

**** Faroe Islands photography workshop 25th-29th May 2019.  Four places available. *****

Faroe Islands Photography Workshops

Join me on 25th-29th May 2019 for this dramatic 5-day (4 nights) Wild Light Faroe Islands Landscape & Seascape Photography Workshop. The Faroe Islands may be small in area, but you’ll find dramatic views at every turn and we will cover a lot of ground on this tour.  Our accommodation is high quality hotel en-suite single occupancy for 4 nights at Hotel Streym in Torshavn. Breakfasts are included.

Alcoholic drinks, lunches, snacks and evening meals are not included.  Special dietary requirements can be catered for. We will usually dine together in the evenings, or you may wish to try one of the restaurants in Torshavn if you prefer.  The hotel is situated near the town centre, the administrative centre of Tinganes and the Marina are close by and fascinating areas to explore. Hotel Streym is the perfect base for our Faroe Islands photography workshop.

We will travel to the extremities of the group of Islands that are connected by bridges and sub sea tunnels during the workshop.  Our groups are intentionally small in number and restricted to single figures for maximum personal attention, no single supplements apply.  Transport to all photography locations for the duration of the workshop with guiding and personal tuition is by Steve Walton.  Image reviews and post processing tuition can take place in the hotel bar in the evenings for those who feel they would benefit from this.

This extensive tour will give you a Faroe Islands experience to remember with dramatic mountain landscapes and impressive seascapes, changing light and weather and the unique culture, flora and fauna and settlements of the islands.  Those who have travelled with me before on previous Wild Light Photography Workshops will know my penchant for spontaneity and there is always room for the unexpected ‘off piste’ excursion to seek out hidden gems and local people.

Getting to and from the Workshop

Our 2019 Wild Light Faroe Islands photography workshop begins at 9.15am on Saturday 25th May.  Direct scheduled flights from Edinburgh to Vagar are operated by Atlantic Airways (flights are not included in the cost of the workshop).  Flights can often be fully booked quite far ahead and are more expensive closer to departure dates, so it is a good idea to book your return flights as soon as possible.  Other destinations from Vagar usually involve stopovers in Copenhagen, some of which are quite lengthy and you may need overnight accommodation.

If you are arriving on the Atlantic Airways scheduled flight from Edinburgh on Friday 24th May 2019, you will need to arrange an evening meal and accommodation for the night of 24th May.  There are several options close to the airport, Hotel Vagar is very convenient and locally the most expensive and a range of B&B’s and a hostel are close by at Sandavagar and Sorvagar.  Accommodation close to the airport also books up well in advance and you should arrange this as soon as you can.  It is your responsibility to arrange your transfer to Hotel Streym in Torshavn in time to begin the workshop on Saturday 25th May 2019 at 9.15am.

The workshop ends on Wednesday 29th May 2019.  If you are staying on for the nights of Wednesday 29th and Thursday 30th May, please arrange your accommodation and your transfer to the airport for your return flight to Edinburgh or other destinations.  There are taxis, a shuttle bus and a scheduled bus service to the airport.  Please note that additional accommodation and airport transfers are not included in the cost of the workshop.  Hotel Streym is a popular hotel and rooms book up well in advance, so be sure to reserve your room if you are extending your stay before the workshop until 25th May or after the 29th May 2019.

 

To reserve your place on my next Faroe Islands landscape & seascape photography workshop, please contact me on +44 (0) 1162994901,  email steve@stevewaltonphotography.info or submit the contact form.  Numbers are restricted to four participants and it is advisable to book early to secure your place on the 2019 workshop.
