What to Expect

Join me on one of my 1-2-1 Photography Workshops in one of three of Ireland’s most beautiful places, Wicklow, The Copper Coast or the Hook Peninsula. When you book one of these workshops you will also receive a free €50 BG Landscape Tours Voucher for use on a future workshop. (This voucher cannot be redeemed for cash)

Where we shoot on the day is up to you.

If you would like to do the workshop in Wicklow you will be spoilt with amazing mountain views, lakes and some of Ireland’s most amazing waterfalls.

If you choose The Copper coast we have the advantage of sunrise and sunset facing south east and south west respectively. We will have beaches to ourselves with fantastic rock formations ans sea stacks.

If you fancy the Hook Peninsula we have Hook Lighthouse which will offer amazing opportunities  to try many compositions with amazing reflections, magic wave motion and using beautiful rock formations to lead us into an image.

Doing a 1-2-1 workshop ensures the whole day is just about you, it also helps us get to more remote locations and allows us to react quicker and more efficient to ever changing conditions.

For more info & to reserve a date in February, get in touch here.

Please Note: Should Covid 19 restrictions prevent us from running this 1-2-1 workshop, we will either reschedule or I will issue you with an online voucher for the full amount paid for use on any workshop or tour in the future.

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.

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.

When you book a trip with us, you get to sit back and relax. while we do all the driving. For our Irish workshops we have our very own Volkswagen 9 seater shuttle bus. 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!
