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.

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.

    I wrote in my last post yesterday that the long cold winter days are behind us as warm temperatures have finally arrived in mid-April 2018.

    The bees, of many types, visited flowers throughout the long, sunny day and I captured some on camera as they went about their busy buzzing.

    Blue skies, warm temperatures and sunshine - spring is here in Ireland 2018

    Spring has finally arrived in Ireland, we're more than half way through the season meteorologically speaking, it's mid-April and we have finally got warm temperatures, low winds, blue sky and sunshine.

    I've been busy photographing throughout the winter, notably for the New York Times, but it is always a delight to see the first days of spring arrive.

    Butterflies flit and flutter throughout, bees buzz and hum from flower to flower and the trees have awoken from their months-long slumber.

    Welcome to longer, warmer, brighter days of spring and summer.

    And that means it is the perfect time to join me, Panoramic Ireland, on a photo tour and workshop in Ireland. From the sunny streets of Dublin to the Caribbean-looking waters of the west of Ireland.

    Dark Hedges, Northern Ireland

    Recently while leading another photo tour to my own part of Ireland, County Antrim, we stopped off at the Dark Hedges.

    Choosing a morning before all of the groups arrived we had the famous avenue of beech trees pretty much to ourselves as S.S. visiting from California photographed Bregagh Road on this, his first visit to Northern Ireland.

    Stone Circles in the Snow, Ireland

    Snow - it's been a snowy winter here in Ireland.

    As I've written before, and will no doubt again, it doesn't snow as much as you might think in Ireland but when it does snow it doesn't stick for very long.
