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:
Outbound 2nd November 2023:
Edinburgh (EDI) to Vagar (FAE): 11:15
Return 9th November 2023:
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
Tyler was incredible. Great planning, great company, always putting us in the best possible positions to take great photos and awesome coach. Highly recommend with no reservations. Will go again with Tyler if I get the opportunity.
A great trip to the Dolomites. Tyler was helpful throughout, and was happy to take us to all the locations we wanted to visit. Always willing to provide help when asked, and patient throughout the whole trip.
I have recently returned from a photo workshop in the Dolomites (mid-October 2023). Well, what can I say. That young Mr Collins (aka Tyler) is one seriously top bloke with the result that I had an absolutely fantastic time, and in fact enjoyed the workshop far more than I could ever have imagined. And to think that at the last minute I wasn't going to go as the forecast was seemingly a bit rubbish. I should know based on the vagaries of the British weather that forecasts more than five minutes hence should be taken with a pinch of salt. With his motoring dexterity at times rivalling that of a Dutch F1 driver, Tyler took us to a number of iconic photo locations where I and others in the group pretended to know what we were doing whilst Tyler oversaw our efforts offering tips and tricks where appropriate. So, even though the conditions were not wall to wall sunshine, 28 degrees in the shade and cloud inversions aplenty (as we had been promised 🙂), we had favourable weather offering ample photo opportunities. Fortunately, Tyler also managed to deal with my ineptitude behind the camera and came to accept (well almost) my mantra of ‘just one more pic’ 🙂. The accommodation at two separate locations (one a rifugio and the other apartments) was excellent and both were well located such that none of the chosen photo locations was too far away. And importantly, Tyler ensured the itinerary remained flexible, both to accommodate the local ambient conditions but also to suit the wishes of the workshop participants. I’d never previously set foot in the Dolomites (I’m a seasoned walker in the Scottish Highlands) but I was blown away by the scenery. The time of the workshop meant that nowhere was too busy with the additional advantage being we were treated to Autumnal colours that made their way into many of our images. The small group size was an added bonus, not to mention the cost of the workshop which doesn’t break the bank (although I’m not suggesting a retrospective hike in the price Tyler 🙂). And not having to plan the day beyond getting up, taking photos, retiring to one’s pit and going through the ‘rinse and repeat’ cycle for seven days was all very relaxing and something I could get quite used to (take note dear 🙂). But, personally speaking, what made the workshop so enjoyable was everyone in the group. We were all pretty chilled (it was only around 12 degrees 😲) but always keen to get a good shot, even when the conditions tested our patience somewhat. Most importantly for me, we had a good laugh from start to finish making the days entertaining throughout. Furthermore, courtesy of the individual group members, I am now significantly wiser in certain subject areas including where the Isle of Sheppey is, the behavioural tendencies of dragonflies with respect to the ‘birds and the bees’, being able to do handstands makes for epic photos in the ‘puddle’ at the Passo di Giau, Minnesota provides amazing fall colours and that one can always rely on a Welsh Brummy to find suitable foreground and lead-in lines for a cracking photo 🙂. As a final word, if you are contemplating going on a Photo Workshop, either to hone your photographic skills or just to share your ambitions of travelling to photogenic locations, I would have no hesitation in recommending Tyler and Chasing Light Tours. You certainly won’t be disappointed and you’ll return home with memories that will stay with you for a loooong time !!
A fantastic tour with a great guide who knows where and when to get the best photographs. And also a great group of people. And a big thanks to Yyler for helping me out with the problems I had.
