This remote archipelago offers a treasure trove of stunning landscapes, untamed wilderness, and boundless photographic possibilities that must be witnessed firsthand to truly appreciate their magnificence.

My carefully curated Faroe Islands photography tour focuses on the best locations for optimal lighting and composition, ensuring you capture the most awe-inspiring shots. While we traverse the enchanting terrain, you’ll have plenty of time to explore each site and perfect your images. Should something catch your eye, we’ll pause our journey if it’s safe to do so.

To ensure personalised attention and support, our group size is limited to just five participants. You’ll enjoy comfortable transportation in a spacious 9-seater vehicle (or similar) for the entire week.

Tour Itinerary

From my experience of running over 30 photography tours, having a fixed daily itinerary is limiting your chances of going home with the best possible images.

I like to work with the weather as much as possible and visit locations based on the current weather conditions. As an example, you can drive through a tunnel where on one side it’s clear blue skies and the other side there’s a blizzard. 

Each evening I will “plan” the next day and let everyone know what time we’ll be leaving the next morning. This ensures that I’m putting you in the right place at the right time.

The tour starts from Vágar Airport (FAE), Faroe Islands.  When looking at flights, please arrive no later than 5PM on arrival day. If your flight arrives after this, drop me a message and I will help you as best I can.

If you are travelling the day before, just let me know so I can arrange to collect you.

Day 1 – Arrival Day

This is the arrival day, I’ll be collecting everyone from the airport. Depending on what time everyone lands, we will squeeze in a sunset shoot. We’ll get settled into our accommodation for the next week and run over the “plan” for the week. Retiring early for our start the next morning.

Day 2 to 7 – The Adventure

This is where the real adventure begins.

Over the next 6 full days we will be photographing at every opportunity we can get. We’ll be getting up early every morning (regardless of weather) to be on location 1 hour before sunrise, after each sunrise shoot we’ll head for breakfast before heading to our next location. 

Each sunset location, we’ll be there roughly 2 hours before so that we can each scope out our sunset composition.

On the final evening, we’ll head out for our final meal together where we can look back on our amazing week together.

Day 8 – Departure Day

Goodbyes are forever, I’ll be saying see you later as I hope you’ll join me on another adventure. We’ll head to the airport where everyone can catch their flights home.

I recently took part in the Senja 2024 February Trip, and it was truly incredible. Not only were we blessed with incredible weather conditions, but Tyler's dedication was exceptional. He goes above and beyond to ensure his workshop exceeds expectations. Tyler is genuinely easygoing, and chatting with him about photography, or anything else for that matter, was an absolute pleasure. Thank you, Tyler. I look forward to crossing paths again someday! Best regards, Philipp

What you’ll learn

On this Faroe Islands Photography Tour I’m at your complete disposal to help and teach you everything I know about photography.

Here are a few of the key skills that I’ll be covering:

Camera Settings: It starts with the basics. RAW, Aperture, Shutter Speed and ISO. Learn how and when to use the various modes on your camera to get the shot you want.

CompositionComposition is everything in landscape photography. Learn how to compose a landscape photograph.

Long Exposures: Learn how to use long exposures so you can create dramatic and interesting photographs.

Histogram: Learn how to read your histogram so that you’re exposing correctly and capturing maximum data with no clipping.

Low Light: Learn how to photograph the night sky and if luck is on our side, we’ll also shoot the Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis).

Editing: Learn how I edit my photographs using Adobe Lightroom Classic with final touches in Photoshop.

Your Guide

Photographer, Light Chaser, Aurora Guide, Web Dev, Biker, Daddy and I’ve got a very understanding girlfriend in no particular order.

Good to Know

Packing List – A full packing list will be emailed after booking.

Accommodation: I’ve booked a 4 bedroom apartment only 10 minutes from the Airport and 2 minutes from the grocery store.

Flights – Airline: Atlantic Airways. Flights from Edinburgh every Monday & Thursday. Keflavik: Mondays and Fridays. Daily flights from Copenhagen.

Meeting Point: The meeting point will either be at the airport in Edinburgh if you’re on the same flight as me, or in the entrance hall at Vagar (FAE) airport.

Hiking – Many of the locations do require hiking. You don’t need to be an athlete but you must be able to walk on uneven, sometimes steep and slippery ground for maybe up to 2 hours one way.

Self Catering – There isn’t a great choice of restaurants on the island, or they’re closed during off season.  We will go to supermarket everyday or every other day to gather what’s necessary for the coming days.  Supermarkets are closed on Sundays. Every day I advise to bring lunch and snacks to eat throughout the day.

Spending Money – On my last trip, I managed to spend approximately £30 per day. Everywhere takes card, cash isn’t needed.

UK Mobile Network – I advise to buy a sim card at the airport.  Costs approximately £20 and comes with 7GB of data. I used the 2GB of data in 2 days, and topped up 5GB for £10 which lasted the rest of the week.

Travel Adapter – Faroe Islands use the the standard 2 pin Euro plug. I advise to bring 2 of these with you.
