HIBERNIA LANDsCAPES WORKSHOPS

Join me on one of my landscape photography workshops and experience not only the joy of seeing our beautiful landscape in its very best light, but learn how to capture that beauty on camera too!

If you've always wanted to get more out of a camera you bought and haven't used, or have recently discovered landscape photography then you can find details below for all of my landscape photography workshops.

I provide tuition in small groups at a range of stunning locations. Learn how to plan a shoot beforehand in detail, compose an image, expose correctly (including long exposures) and I also provide post-processing hints and tips. These workshops are suitable for beginners right up to advanced photographers who would like to be introduced to and guided around some new locations to expand their portfolio.
All of my workshops are planned meticulously to give you the best chance of being in the right place, at the right time!

I offer a range of workshops on Rathlin Island, in the Mourne Mountains, Donegal and the Benevenagh Area of Outstanding Beauty.

Doan & Lough Shannagh - Mourne Photography Workshop - 12th January 2019 (SOLD OUT)

Doan is the often overlooked gem tucked right into the heart of the Kingdom of Mourne. It's not the biggest; it's not the steepest; it's not the most imposing. But its diminutive stature belies a photogenic beauty unique in the Mournes. From the summit, you have a compete 360 degree panorama looking up at the taller peaks around. If there is anywhere that makes you feel like you are in the Mournes not just on them, then this summit does. Then there's the views down into the valleys - with the Silent Valley Reservoir stretching away to the south and Lough Shannagh to the west. And, of course, let's not forget all those rugged tors just waiting to provide all sorts of interesting foreground detail. As far as fully immersive Mournes experiences go, this one is hard to beat.

ICONIC DONEGAL 2-DAY WORKSHOP 2nd-3rd March 2019

Donegal is often described as being 'Ireland in Miniature' as it has everything you could possibly hope for in an Irish landscape;  mountains, pristine sandy beaches, battered rocky beaches, sea arches, waterfalls and glorious loughs are dotted all around.
Donegal is, for me, the highlight of the Wild Atlantic Way.
My mum's side of the family are from Donegal so I've always spent lots of time there.  Gaoth Dobhair (or Gweedore), in the northwest of the county has become my favourite spot, such is the concentration of fantastic locations in such a small area.  For years I have visited Gaoth Dobhair every Winter to photograph the landscape, a time of the year when I have the place to myself and when the landscape is at its most rugged. I'd love to share that experience with others.

MOURNE - AUTUMN COLOUR & SEASCAPES WORKSHOP - 27th October 2019 

Photographing the Mourne Mountains doesn't always mean donning the hiking boots and trekking high up onto the summits.  Around the foothills of the Mournes are stunning forests and pristine beaches which allow you to capture a different side to these hills.  Join me to learn two different styles of photography (rivers of Autumn and seascapes).

For me, there's no better place to photograph the riot of Autumn colour than Tollymore Forest in Newcastle.  This weekend around Hallowe'en is often the perfect time to capture the colour in its peak.  Just bring your wellies!  Around this time, the sun also begins to set in the perfect location to capture both side light and colour over the iconic profile of the Mourne mountains from beautiful, quiet and ever-changing beaches.
