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 our photography 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 Vouchers for 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. Belfast & the Antrim Coast - the land of myths and legends, saints and scholars, how things have changed in 'The North' and for the better. The stunning landscapes are now easy for all to see. Game of Thrones has added to that appeal.
  4. 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.
  5. The Burren - a unique geological landscape, The Burren is home to arctic, alpine and mediterranean plants.
  6. Connemara - rugged and wild, full of bogs, sea and sky as well as a few ponies of distinction.
  7. 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.

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.

    Subtle Reflections in the Irish Landscape

    Reflections are an important part of landscape photography. 

    Sometimes these reflections are bright and colourful and sometimes, like here, more subtle and subdued like a typical west of Ireland scene.

    Join Panoramic Ireland in 2021 for landscape and cityscape photography workshops in Ireland.

    Stone Bridge and Autumn River, Ireland

    Autumn arrives, the clocks have gone back in Ireland and the daylight length is now quite short.

    Here, the trees have lost most of their leaves those not carried by the flow of the water remaining on the rocks and riverbanks.

    This bridge is large, more than 12ft to the centre of the arch from the river below designed to take traffic across the small but steep sided valley, seen here with low flow but a raging torrent in heavy rains.

    For the moment, Ireland is in Level 5 lockdown which means that travel is limited to 5km except for work, school and essential purposes - much of the countryside is looking autumnal and winter will be here by the time we exit Level 5.

    Enjoy the view and don't forget to check back for more posts regularly. Here's one of beech trees and an Irish waterfall in autumn.

    Vouchers for Photography Workshops

    As I write it appears that Ireland is again heading for lockdown, the Irish government are meeting tomorrow Monday 19th October to decide on moving the country to Level 4 or Level 5, perhaps something in between.

    I have just created a new voucher for a photography workshop in Dublin, and I chose the image above of a stormy morning by the coast of the capital; blue hour is well under way as crashing waves fill the rocky shore with texture, clouds racing across the sky - you can almost smell and feel the freshness of the Irish coast. 

    See a previous post on vouchers here: https://panoramicireland.com/miscellaneous-blog-category/131-vouchers-for-christmas-or-birthday-presents-photo-tours

    While travel overseas may be disrupted, vouchers make a good present for friends and family who want to learn more about photography on a private workshop - so without crowds; a relaxing environment to learn and enjoy the experience.

    Don't forget that Panoramic Ireland's photography workshops and tours are private, made to suit your interests and location - and we have been creating tailored tours in Ireland for 15 years.

    Vouchers are available for Christmas and all year round, they are valid for several years and bookings can be made for most days of the year subject to availability. It is possible to pay for workshop vouchers in instalments so contact us to find out more.

    Woodland Stream, Green at the Beginning of Autumn in Ireland

    From the coast to the mountains - a few weeks ago I headed to the coast for sunrise, the morning's forecast was for sunshine and a bright start to the day.

    In reality it was dull and grey and there was no hint of a colourful sunrise.

    I photographed and videoed at the Forty Foot in Dublin before making my way into the mountains.

    Having checked the weather radar it looked like better weather was to be found away from Dublin.

    I found the sunshine after a little rain and the morning got brighter and warmer. I stopped at a woodland stream to photograph some woodland colour and character.

    Enjoy the video from the day's journey through the scenic Irish countryside.

    October in Ireland, Sunshine at the Coast

    The myth that Ireland suffers from bad weather year round, especially outside of the summer months, is definitely not true.

    Autumn and Winter in Ireland can be full of fine, clear and bright weather, just like in this image from the spectacular coastline. Low tide exposes golden sands as a small stream slowly trickles towards the steady motion of small waves.

    This coastline is full of sea stacks and crags and while it looks peaceful here it can be stormy too.

    Join Panoramic Ireland for a private photography workshop in Ireland from the Causeway Coast to the Copper Coast or anywhere else.
