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. To buy a Panoramic Ireland Photography Gift Voucher for a friend, relation or even for yourself please follow this link or Contact Us.

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.

    Sunny Summer Solstice, Ireland 2017

    It isn't always hot in Ireland, in fact the first two weeks of June 2017 saw colder than usual temperatures and, in places, double the rainfall average for the whole month.

    Today, the longest day of the year has been hot, along with the past few days we have seen temperatures of over 28C.

    Here on Howth Pier in County Dublin this elderly couple were enjoying the afternoon summer sun on the stone wall, and why not?

    To answer the often asked questions "Is it ever sunny in Ireland?" and "Does it rain all the time?" here is proof.

    It isn't always raining, cold and grey; very often it is sunny and warm, on occasions hot.

    On a recent photography workshop to the Antrim Coast, specifically the Giant's Causeway, in between shooting images I made some video of the stunning UNESCO World Heritage Site that is close to where I grew up and studied at University.

    I have written about the Causeway in recent weeks, you can read more about that here and to book a photography tour or workshop on the Antrim Coast please contact me here.

    Stormy Evening Sky over Dublin's River Liffey, Samuel Beckett Bridge and Convention Centre

    Evening in Dublin as the stormy post-sunset light slowly turns to night via storm clouds spreading across the sky over the Irish capital's River Liffey and its modern structures - The Samuel Beckett Bridge, Convention Centre and others.

    This is a place that I have photographed often but it never looks the same twice.

    Ross Castle, Killarney at Night

    One of the southwest of Ireland's most iconic buildings, Ross Castle is a tower house or fortified dwelling dating from the late 1400s and is typical of the architecture of the period - wealthy and powerful families lived in such defensive structures.

    Seen here after sunset as the blue hour approaches, clouds race across the sky and the waters of the river run calm to give a good, but not perfect, reflection with its bright artificial lights.

  • Sunset in Ireland's Midlands

    Ask me about Ireland or about photography in Ireland.

    Sunset in Ireland's Midlands

    In Ireland it would be easy to assume that the best sunsets are to be found on the west coast with the sun setting over the Atlantic.

    The Wild Atlantic Way is certainly a great place for sunsets but the east of the country and Ireland's Midlands can boast bright, saturated, stunning evening skies as seen in this image.

    After a three day photography tour on Ireland's Atlantic Coast I was travelling through the centre of the country when the bright sky attracted me off the motorway, as I wrote in a recent post here.

    To view more of my sunset images see here.

    And of course you can enjoy the real thing, join me on a photography tour or workshop in Ireland.
