What to Expect

Join us on this Donegal one day photo workshop.

This workshop will run from 7.45am until 4.30pm, sunrise at this time of the year is 8.50am. We understand that times are different at the moment so we are restricting this workshop to just 4 people, this allows everyone enough space  and comfort on our bus during the workshop.

Our meeting point for this workshop is Creeslough Health Centre at 7.45am, this is an ideal location to explore some of Donegal’s best photography locations with each location no more than 30 minutes away.  The workshop will finish  at 4.30pm, just after sunset.

After sunrise, we will take a short break to get some breakfast before continuing the workshop. Once the workshop is finished I will return you to your cars in Creeslough.

This will be an enjoyable days shooting at some of Ireland’s finest locations.

Transportation

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

We will have the bus fully cleaned and sterilised with hand sanitiser and masks for anyone who needs them.

We will meet at the car park at the front of Creeslough Health Centre at 7.45am, from here you can join me in my spacious bus, you can leave your car and I will return you when the workshop is finished.

Alternatively, you are more than welcome to drive your own car throughout the workshop.

Weather

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.

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.
