Ireland Photography Tour
Discover the breathtaking beauty of the Faroe Islands on our exclusive photography tour, specially designed for passionate photographers like you. 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.
Our carefully curated Ireland photography workshop 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.
Throughout the tour, we’ll be on location from before sunrise until after sunset, making the most of the magical golden hours. To ensure personalized 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.
Excluding flights and food, our comprehensive photography tour package covers all essentials, including airport transfers, transportation, accommodations, guidance, and photography lessons. Seize this extraordinary opportunity to sharpen your photography skills and create unforgettable memories in the mesmerizing Faroe Islands.
Book your spot now for our intimate, five-person photography tour and enjoy an unparalleled one-on-one experience with expert guidance tailored to your needs.
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.
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.
My booked flights from Edinburgh for November 2023 are below:

Vagar (FAE) to Edinburgh (EDI): 09:05
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.

THE REVIEWS SPEAK FOR THEMSELVES
Me and my uncle had a great weekend on the Causeway Coast and Donegal with Tyler. The weather on the second day for sunrise wasn’t great, but Tyler on his own time offered to take us out the following evening for sunset at Malin Head, and that’s where I got my best pictures. Certainly felt that my composition and knowledge of long exposures went up after spending time with Tyler. Looking forward to coming across for another visit!
I love travel to new locations with experienced photographer, as they know what it takes for great photography. Tyler's Chasing Light Tour trip to Faroe Islands really exceeded my expectations. His friendly attitude, high level of energy and location knowledge wrapped in a very attractive pricing. The experience is a calm, no rush, peaceful reunion with the nature and stunning landscape, and Taylor will be here brining you back to base at the end of the day.
A thoroughly enjoyable experience in Iceland! Tyler’s expertise has helped me view the process of photography in a completely new light. We saw the Aurora on technically 4 nights, very impressive given the forecast for the week! Thanks so much Tyler for an amazing experience. Will be on another tour in the future!
I recently returned from a workshop with Tyler at the Lofoten island's. The whole trip from start to finish was excellent. Even when conditions were extremely difficult for photography (2 day snow blizzard), we managed to get fantastic images, if it wasn't for Tylers determination to get us out, I would have stayed in the log cabin with the fire going! Tyler had obviously done his homework regarding sunrise and sunset locations, and due to this we got nice side lighting on each location. We were lucky enough to get aurora 4 nights out of 7 and the last night the sky exploded which put the icing on the cake. Tyler is a perfectionist when it comes to composition and i learnt a lot from him during this trip. If you are lokking a tour where you a going to visit Epic locations, get great tuition and brilliant craic Tylers your man.
