What to Expect

Join us in Connemara National Park for what promises to be a great days shooting with like minded people. This will be a full day workshop and will run from 6.30am (sunrise) – 7pm (sunset). We will meet to start the workshop at 5.45am at the Peacocks Hotel, Maam Cross, Galway then you can join me in my luxury 9 seater mini bus for the duration of the workshop. We will finish up at 7pm and I will return you to your cars at Peacocks Hotel. I will be staying at Peacocks hotel the night before the workshop, it is comfortable and clean, and does a brilliant breakfast.

After sunrise, we will take a quick drive back to the hotel for breakfast, before returning out to shoot for the remainder of the day. We will have a 30 minute lunch stop in the middle of the day also. 

This will be a long, but an extremely enjoyable workshop.


Transportation throughout the workshop in our 9 seater mini bus. Our bus comes fully fitted with charging ports to charge phones and cameras.

Joining us in our bus allows you to sit back and relax while we drive from one location to another, it also allows you to interact and get to know the rest of the group.


Ireland isn’t exactly known for its sunny weather, but what it can be known for is the amazing light, stormy seas and moody clouds. No matter what the weather, you can be sure we are in the right part of the country to capture what ever mood is thrown at us. As the weather is so unpredictable in Ireland its impossible to set out a definite itinerary until we actually start the workshop, I will however be keeping a very very close eye on the weather throughout the day to make sure I get you in the right place, at the right time, for the right light.
