What Is A Photo Tour?

What is a photo tour and is it different to a photography workshop? This is a question we get asked a lot. There is no real difference but simply, a tour is more focused on seeing the place with a photographic emphasis while a workshop is specifically designed to concentrate on one or more aspects of your photographic technique, equipment or composition. Both tour and workshop are interchangeable and there is a degree of overlap.

Because we tailor each tour to suit your needs, we choose the appropriate locations and times to maximise your time in Ireland and help you to improve your photography.

If you would like to know more about ourphotography workshops in Ireland please contact us here and join an Irish photographer for a day in your favourite part of Ireland.

Don't forget that we offer Gift Vouchersfor Christmas and all year round for birthdays and other occasions. A photography gift voucher entitles the holder to the same benefits as a direct booking: one-to-one photography tuition, a choice of locations in Dublin, Wicklow and the rest of Ireland, morning or evening photography workshops, follow-on advice and critique on images.

What makes Ireland so special? Perhaps it is the landscapes, the history, the people or a combination of all of these that bring 7 million visitors every year to this little island.

Dublin is the capital of Ireland and the chief city on the island, Belfast is the second largest, and the chief city of Northern Ireland. The island has two currencies and two governments but there no border controls between the north and south; indeed it is quite easy to drive from one side to the other without knowing it.

It is true, in Ireland it rains a bit (isn't that why it's so green?) but don't let that put you off because it doesn't rain as much as you think. With some good luck there will be fine weather during your visit. The best months to visit are April, May, June and September. The days are long, the weather is often perfect and it isn't high season. Is there any better place to be than driving along a country road somewhere in Ireland on a warm, sunny day?

Ireland makes a perfect location to improve your photography or to enhance your image collection. Contact us today to learn more about our bespoke tour options.

Seven Essential Places to Photograph in Ireland

  1. Dublin - home to Guinness, Croke Park and The Book of Kells; you can't miss Dublin, a city that has improved over the past 10 years.
  2. Wicklow - mountainous and empty yet less than an hour from Dublin, Wicklow is home to the most famous hermitage in Ireland at Glendalough.
  3. Dingle - the furthest west that you can get in Ireland, and a peninsula that has as more pubs than you could ever visit. Visually stunning.
  4. The Burren - a unique geological landscape, The Burren is home to arctic, alpine and mediterranean plants.
  5. Connemara - rugged and wild, full of bogs, sea and sky as well as a few ponies of distinction.
  6. Donegal - the most northerly county in Ireland, the Atlantic coastline is second to none in Ireland with the sea cliffs of Slieve League and miles-long sandy beaches.
  7. Belfast & the Antrim Coast - the land of my youth, how things have changed in 'The North' and for the better. The stunning landscapes are now easy for all to see.

Have a look at the blog section of the site for more stories, events and information on the places mentioned here.

Enjoy the site, we hope you learn something and when you come to visit us here in Ireland/ Why not book a photography tour with us, learn something about the real Ireland and learn how to make better images.

    Snow in Ireland, February 2018

    I often get asked if it snow in Ireland or does the sun shine in winter in Ireland.

    And on certain days it is possible to say yes to both.

    This week has seen plenty of snow here in Ireland, and it has also seen lots of blue sky and sunshine - with all three on the same day so I can answer yes to both of the typical questions. Yes, it does snow in Ireland and yes, the sun does shine in winter.

    Here, a scene from the mountains of Ireland from a photography expedition above the snowline into the white world of winter.

    A Frosty Start

    Recent cold weather has brought clear conditions with bright blue skies and frosty mornings.

    The hedgerows take on another form when frost covered and the mountains beckon, their ice-covered summits set against the bright blue sky can be almost blinding.

    This is of course perfect for the landscape photographer in winter.
