What to Expect

Join us in Connemara National park for what promises to be a great day of shooting with like minded people. This will be a full day workshop and will run from 4.45am to 1pm. We will meet to start the workshop at the village car park across from the museum in Leenane Village. From there you can park your car and join me in my 9 seater shuttle bus for the duration of the workshop. This workshop is strictly limited to only 5 people to ensure maximum comfort and distances throughout the day.

Once we shoot sunrise we can go back to the Leenane hotel or Purple Door Cafe for some breakfast before setting off again for the day. When we finish the workshop, I will return you to your car at the car park. Alternatively if you do not feel comfortable travelling in the bus, you can also follow behind in your own car.

This will be an extremely enjoyable workshop.



Once you make your way to Connemara you will not have to drive for the rest of the tour as we take you around in our fully insured and spacious luxury 9 seater mini bus, which comes fully air-conditioned, with power points for charging all phones and cameras.

Alternatively if you do not feel comfortable travelling in the bus, you can also follow behind in your own car.

We will leave the car park at 4.45am sharp.


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.

Why book with us?

YES YES, The rumours are true… We do have a knack of getting our groups in the right place at the right time, ensuring you capture a truly memorable shot you can cherish for the rest of your life. To us, capturing “the shot” is important but just as important is to enjoy the experience, when we get to a location take a minute to breath in the fresh air and really appreciate the views around us.

The bus is a long wheel base, full air conditioned, extremely spacious and has ample USB charging points. On our tours abroad we also mostly book 9 seater buses and with groups no bigger than 5 or 6, ensures plenty of space and comfort!
