What to Expect
This will be an Irish Workshop like no other…
Tory Island, less explored, less photographed but more beauty than you could ever imagine. From the moment I set foot on Tory it felt different. It was different. Life here is different, the landscape is different and the people are amazing, full of knowledge and stories.
We will travel by passenger ferry from Magheroarty Pier to Tory Island. There is ample parking at Magherorarty. From here we will board the passenger ferry to Tory. We obviously won’t have a car while there. This will be walking only. The walking isn’t hard but we could easily walk 6/7km a day along the headlands.
Once we step off the ferry we will make the short 5 minutes walk to our hotel for the weekend, The Tory Island Hotel. This is the only hotel on the Island. Each participant will have their own room and breakfast is included. The hotel also does lunch and dinner too, should we be hungry during the day/evening between shoots. There is also a small shop beside the hotel for snacks.
During the workshop, we will aim to shoot ever sunrise and sunset while on the Island. We will obviously be here in the height of summer so hopes would be high for some decent conditions. No matter what, mood also suits Tory so could be a win win. Saying that, it is still Ireland so bringing clothes to suit all weathers is advised. Sunrise at this time of the year is at 5am and sunset 10pm. In between, we will also have plenty of downtime so you can catch up on sleep, eat and do some day time shooting/exploring too.
Another bit of advice I could give, if you have a bike feel free to bring it.
We will check out after sunrise and breakfast on the Sunday morning, July 7th and take the ferry to our cars at Magheroarty.
We will choose our ferry times closer to the date but we will aim to get out to the Island about 1pm os so. I will keep you informed of the times about two momnths before the workshop. The cost of the ferry is included in the cost of the workshop.
A non refundable deposit of €200 will be required to secure your place on this workshop. The remaining balance will have to be paid no later than 5 weeks prior to workshop. Once booked, I will send instructions on how to pay the balance at your convenience.
Please Note: In the event of extremely bad weather or rough seas that forces us to cancel the workshop. This is obviously out of our control but if this happens we will reschedule or you will be issued with a a voucher code for the full amount paid including deposit to be used on any future workshops.
