One lucky subscriber will win a tutored landscape photography workshop for two at the unforgettable archipelago located between Norway and Iceland, courtesy of Tatra Photography.

A photographer’s dream, this group of small islands rise majestically from the sea with the highest sea cliffs in Europe and mountain peaks soaring to nearly 1000 meters.

As part of a small group the lucky winner and a guest will experience a five-day photography tour of the Faroe Islands with the chance to capture the beauty of their majestic mountains, mighty cascading waterfalls, sweeping fjords, rugged beaches and tiny fishing settlements, which make this destination a photographer’s dream.

Suitable for all levels; from complete beginners to experienced photographers, the Tatra Photography tour can be enjoyed by those using digital or film format. While on location the winner will receive dedicated one-to-one tuition from professional landscape photographer Adam Burton, who will provide guidance on both the technical and creative aspects of landscape photography and advise on how to capture those wow factor images.

This fantastic prize comes complete with a £250 starter kit from photography equipment experts Lee Filters.

The Tatra Photography trip also includes return flights from London Gatwick to the Faroe Islands via Copenhagen, half board accommodation at the Gjáargarður Guest House in Gjógv and the Hotel Føroyar in Tórshavn. Both offer a simple yet stylish accommodation, which blend perfectly into their natural Faroese backdrops.
