faroe islands workshop 2018 announcementAfter successful workshop in 2017, F/8 Photo Expeditions will return to the Faroe Islands with the same photography instructor team. Conor MacNeil, Zoe Timmers and I will lead a group of 10 photographers for 6 days.

The Faroe Islands are a landscape photographers ideal destination. Soaring mountain peaks and stunning fjords dominate the scenery. Rugged coastlines, quaint sea side towns and seemingly unbelievable landscapes make it a magical destination.

The country is perfectly suited for a workshop, too, and we’ll stay at the beautiful Hotel Føroyar in Torshavn for seven nights. Luckily, the islands aren’t too big, so we’ll enjoy short drives to our favourite photography locations.

We’ll teach how to photograph these amazing landscapes and all the tips and tricks needed to edit images like a pro! We’ll cover everything from the basics to professional techniques in no time!
