ATLANTIC MOODS, FAROE ISLANDS

23rd - 29th February 2020

Enso only.jpg

MYSTERIOUS, REMOTE, UNSPOILED

Mysterious, remote, unspoiled, rugged and imposing, the Faroe Islands are one of the most magnetic locations in the World for the landscape photographer. Battered by the elements, towering cliffs rise from the depths of the ocean, delineating a group of islands where time seems to have stopped and the feeling of being far away from it all overwhelms the senses of the visitor.

Isolated in the Atlantic Ocean, halfway between Scotland and Iceland, it is no surprise that these islands have been ranked by National Geographic as the most authentic and unspoiled islands in the World. This location remains largely unknown and still seldom visited by photographers. Expect it to soon become the “new Iceland” for landscape photographers! Dynamic, changeable and dramatic; the light and weather conditions are as impressive as the landscape. Snow, mist, sunny skies and dramatic clouds can happen anytime, anywhere. 
The Faroe Islands display one of the most dramatic and mysterious coastlines in the world, with towering cliffs, rock pinnacles, beaches and fjords. 

In winter the snow covers the summits of the peaks, dramatically contrasting with the dark waters of the ocean. We may equally experience snow at valley level and have the opportunity of observing and photographing the Northern Lights dancing over the fjords. 

During our photo immersion trip, we will help you connect with the mystery and moods of these islands and use photography as a creative mean of personal expression.

The Faroe Islands are one of the best places to photograph in black and white. The skies are moody and filled with character, the mountains and fjords display incredible textures and shapes and mystery permeates it all.

In winter snow covers the peaks of the mountains, creating a dramatic contrast with the deep dark ocean and the profound valleys. We can expect snow at valley level too.

LEADERS OF THE TRIP

RAFAEL ROJAS

Rafael Rojas (Master Hasselblad 2014, MA Photography, ARPS) is a Swiss-Spanish fine art photographer, author and lecturer whose work frequently focuses on concepts like time, decay and renewal, the raw latent energy found in the landscape and the ephemeral qualities of existence. He strives to encapsulate concept, emotion and spirituality in his work.    

Rafael has been involved in teaching since he was in his teens, and well before he took a camera for the first time. First helping out young students, then teaching undergrads and later on as a University lecturer. Nowadays, as a full time professional photographer, lecturer, author and creativity mentor, he deeply enjoys helping other photographers grow as artists, slow down and look at the world with different eyes.

He is the founder of the online Photo School "Photography with Intent", a unique, comprehensive and structured one year course devoted to the whole photographic process from message to print.

Rafael is also co-owner and co-director of “Platinum Press Editions”, an independent finer art photography publishing company devoted to the creation of photography books of the highest quality.
