NEW Ireland 2020 Autumn Photography Staycations

 

Get into the landscape this Autumn and let us guide you through Ireland’s most stunning landscapes.

 

Coronavirus has certainly not been fun, but it has given us photographers time away to explore some of the great landscape that’s closer to home. Well, actually it is home, our fair auld isle, Eire. Peter, Daragh, and Michael have been on the road exploring new locations to bring you this autumn. All your photography needs satisfied. Our workshops are self-drive, though carpooling may be possible if restrictions allow in Autumn. Deposits are 100% refundable and as always we stay in single-occupancy hotels. Why not join us for some great photographic staycation this autumn? We have a brand new programme below, lots of new images, and you can simply add deposits directly through the website.

Wild Beaches

 

Fancy shooting a real gem of the Irish landscape. The lesser-visited northwest coast provide an amazing chance to shoot some of Ireland’s finest landscape. Open expansive sandy beaches, stunning swells and dramatic coastal colours. Lest we forget the equally impressive Mount Errigal, Dunlewy, the Poisoned Valley and more. Donegal is just the little bit off the beaten track and quite frankly that suits us just fine. This workshop provides the chance to shoot dramatic and minimal seascapes, stunning mountains and lakes, cliffs and even a shipwreck for good measure.
