Travel far and away with Dan Anderson to explore and photograph with your local cultural guide. The local driver guides are also photographers, therefore they know what to expect, and will get you to breath-taking locations each day. Faroe landscapes are comprised of fantastic fjords, rugged steep cliffs, crashing waves on the Atlantic coastline, and traditional villages. With the constantly changing weather conditions you can experience different seasons on the same day, which can present dramatic light with endless opportunities to capture beautiful images. Your guides know how to navigate the ever changing weather, getting you to terrific locations.

The Faroe Islands are comprised of eighteen islands lying about half-way between Norway and Iceland. Since 1948 Faroe has been a self-governing nation under the Kingdom of Denmark (however they are not members of the European Union). The first known settlers are thought to be Irish Monks. Today 90% of the exports come from fishing, and although tourism is growing tourists are few and far between. You will appreciate this fact in the tranquility of being able to photograph in this remote region.

Join accomplished photographer and guide Dan Anderson, he invites you on his return visit to the Faroe Islands.Daniel Anderson is a photographer whose ongoing personal work is primarily dedicated to the landscape in its many forms. He began his photographic career after studying with Ansel Adams and other contemporary masters of photography, and became known for his finely crafted black and white prints made with an 8 x 10 view camera. He has evolved into digital printing using the latest high end digital equipment and technologies and now is able to produce both color and black and white prints to even higher standards than were possible in the film era.

He has photographed widely in Wisconsin’s Door County, the American west, England, Scotland, Iceland, Ireland, Chile, Greece and Italy. His work is primarily concerned with the natural scene and his camera has captured both the high drama of storms and vast panoramas as well as the delicacy of intimate details. His work also includes a series of images of Cathedrals and Abbeys, Door County barn interiors, Greek architecture and a multi year project of a single Door County farm. His work has been widely exhibited throughout the U.S. and Europe and his images are found in many public and private collections.

He has been an active teacher in photography, participating in many workshops throughout the United States. He is the founder and director of the Door County Creative Photography Workshops now emphasizing the teaching of fine art digital printmaking and is on the staff of the Peninsula School of Art in Wisconsin.  www.DanAnderson.com

April 27-May 2: Faroe Islands

The islands are relatively small and driving to various locations is more weather dependent than location dependent, therefore the following are various photographic locations your guides will plan on reaching, however it may not be possible to visit all of them on your journey.

You will feel like you are in an episode of the Game of Thrones, exploring this remote and mysterious land alongside fellow photographers. It will be important to remain flexible, trust your local driver guides who will navigate the changing weather patterns each day. Return to your hotel each evening which are ensuite accommodations and have Wi-Fi. Given the timing each day and weather there may be time mid-day or in the evening for photo discussion or lecture.

Faroe has some of the most picturesque landscapes. At every turn, the vistas will astound you. This is one of our planet’s most fascinating and unique environments. Some of the highlights during your time on the Faroe Islands will consist of Gjogv, Gasadalur waterfall, Sorvagsvatn, Saksun, Tjornuvik, Funningur, Nordradalur, and Sornfelli. There will be many more photo ops along the way during your time here that your drivers will share with you.

Gjogv is a friendly and authentic village offering the perfect place to explore the North and East parts of the archipelago. Saksun is another picturesque village with a charming church, waterfall, grassy rooftops and a fjord as backdrop. If the weather cooperates you can capture a beautiful sunrise at Tjornuvik village. Then there is Funningur church located right next to the crashing waves. (B, D each day)
