Faroe Islands Photography Workshop May 2022 – SOLD OUT – Waiting List
With Steve Gosling and Kevin Raber
May 11 – 18, 2022
This workshop was originally scheduled for April 2021 but due to COVID, it has been moved to 2022. We are quite confident that this time we will be able to run this workshop.
This workshop is sold out. Please email Kevin at [email protected] to be put on a waiting list. We will notify you if there is an opening
The Faroe Islands are situated in the North Atlantic about halfway between Iceland and Norway. The Faroes are comprised of 18 rocky, volcanic islands connected by road tunnels, ferries, causeways, and bridges. It’s a dramatic and windswept landscape with mountains, valleys, grassy heathland, and steep coastal cliffs that harbor thousands of seabirds. The coastline stretches for 1289 km (800 miles) so you’re never more than around 5kms (3 miles) from the coast. The island’s isolated position and their location in the North Atlantic means that changeable weather is a constant feature – great for the photographer looking to capture moody and evocative images!
We also hope your time with us will be educational, instructive, and informative to help you develop and refine your photographic skills. Our aim will be to not just help you with your technique but primarily to encourage and enable you to consider what you photograph, why (i.e. to clarify what you are trying to communicate with your images), and to contemplate how your photographs can reflect your emotional as well as visual responses to the landscape. There will be lots of opportunities to do this out in the field with cameras in hand (well, on tripod preferably!) and back at our hotel.
For this all-inclusive trip, we will be based at the Hotel Foroyar, a fabulous 4-star hotel based on the outskirts of Torshavn, the capital of the Faroe Islands. Accommodation will be in double rooms (all single occupancy) and we will have breakfast and dinner at the hotel. We will take our lunches at various locations (or a packed lunch depending on our exact itinerary).
Steve and I hope you’ll consider joining us for this incredible trip. It’s a perfect location to visit and get back in the post-pandemic groove of photographing incredible landscapes in some incredible light. Space is very limited so don’t hesitate.

Photography is my passion and has been for 50 plus years. My career in photography has allowed me to travel the world, meet some of the most interesting people on the planet and see things I could never have dreamed of. My goal is to share the passion of picture taking through photographs and teaching with as many people as I can, hoping it brings them as much joy and happiness as it has me. I do this through photoPXL.com, this site, as well as Rockhopper Workshops, and other projects, as well as teaching as Artist In Residence at the Indianapolis Art Center.
