Workshop Information – Beara in Focus

Our Beara photography workshop takes place amongst some of Ireland’s finest natural beauty. Our focus on this workshop will be on the natural beauty of Beara. Peter has made countless trips to the area so learning new skills will be combined with photographing handpicked beautiful locations. If you want to photograph dramatic mountains, lakes and seascapes then this is the workshop for you. It’s a masterclass so a basic level of technical competence is assumed and our focus will be on light and composition.

The main photographic focus will be on landscape photography and abstract depictions of the natural environment. A fully manual camera (digital SLR) and tripod are essential. We want to teach you how to make art not take snaps.

Workshop Weekend Programme

We do not set out a specific location itinerary, as Peter will bring you to the best locations under prevailing light conditions. As a general guide, however, we will be visiting numerous lakes, forests and rivers. 

Our days will entail sunrise and sunset shoots. We will be having a break for a few hours after breakfast if you need a snooze. The day will then be divided between shooting, critiquing and post-processing in Photoshop and Lightroom. We will begin with a sunset shoot Thursday after a 4 pm meet up and finish up on Sunday after our sunrise shoot.
