Guided Photography Workshop with Chuck Robinson and Don Rosenberger

Limit of 10 Participants


Registration Opens: January 10, 2022
Registration Deadline: May 31, 2022

The Faroe Islands is an archipelago of 18 mountainous islands located halfway between Iceland and Scotland in the North Atlantic Ocean. Since 1948, the Faroe Islands have been a self-governing nation under the external sovereignty of the Kingdom of Denmark. The Faroe Islands is not a member of the European Union, even though Denmark is.
The islands’ population of 52,000 is spread out across the 17 inhabited islands. These islands are connected by excellent infrastructure linked together by a comprehensive road network and tunnel and ferry connections.

Today the Faroes is a “hot” destination for landscape photographers with epic vistas found in few other places.

Day 1: Arrival. We expect to pick up most if not all clients from the airport, subject to your arrival time. Depending on arrival time, photography may be possible.

Day 2 thru 6: Because the weather in the Faroes is hard to predict, we will keep a flexible schedule in order to maximize our opportunities. For this reason it is not possible to provide a day by day itinerary.

Day 7: Departure. We will shuttle the group back to the airport.

Lodging: We will be staying at Hotel Foroyar in the capital city of Tórshavn. All rooms are single occupancy.

Meals: The hotel provides breakfast, otherwise the workshop fee does not include meals. In order to maximize photographic opportunities we may have to catch some meals on the run, rather than take the time for a relaxing meal at a nice restaurant. We recommend clients keep some snacks handy because we may not be near food when hunger strikes.


Prerequisites: While all skill levels are welcome, we feel that each participant should have at least a basic understanding of their gear and exposure (f/stop and shutter speed). We are always available to help our clients during workshops, but you will gain maximum benefit from this trip if we are filling in the missing pieces of your knowledge and not teaching the basics. If you are unsure of all of your camera functions, please bring your camera manual with you.

Recommended Equipment:
Main camera and backup camera if you have one
Sturdy Tripod
Lenses – Wide Angle thru Telephoto (up to 200mm)
Remote Shutter Release
Rain pants and rain coat for wind and rain protection.

Risks: The Faroe Islands is a remote destination. The workshop operators are not aware of the extent or quality of medical care available. The workshop participant is solely responsible for determining if their health insurance would provide for emergency treatment, if necessary. We recommend that each participant obtain sufficient insurance to provide for any necessary emergency care and or medical evacuation. Such coverage is not included in the workshop fee.


You will be hiking on uneven and rocky surfaces and some hikes may include steep inclines. The rocks around waterfalls and shorelines can be very slippery. We may also be shooting at the top of tall cliffs, each participant is expected to take appropriate care to avoid injury to themselves and those around them. In the event of an emergency, immediate medical care may not be readily available.

Each participant will be required to sign a liability waiver in order to participate.

Physical Requirements: You will need to be able to carry your gear to shooting locations such as waterfalls and vistas. Hikes may be up to 5 miles round trip and include steep elevation changes over rocky terrain. Rolling camera bags are strongly discouraged.

Weather: Typical temperatures in September range from the low 40s to the mid-50s. While that does not sound too bad, don’t forget this is a very windy and rainy location. Dressing in layers is essential.

No Drama Workshop Policy: Please read the section on my website regarding my desire for a no drama environment.
