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.

Image of the Week

February 20th 2020

This week's image comes from the west of Ireland after dark, the night sky over County Galway with stars, the bright moon and moonflare as well as the glow of the city lights from Galway.

Ireland is a very good astrophotography location, but light pollution and cloudy weather often hamper night time photoshoots.

Thankfully there are darker locations and clear moonless nights but I still enjoy looking at this image.

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.

    Coastal Geology, Photography in Ireland

    The Irish coastline is full of variation with long sandy beaches, rocky inlets and geological formations in a compact area.

    And that makes Ireland a perfect place for coastal landscape photography.

    Here the rocks are carboniferous limestone, in layers that have been long eroded by the wave action of the Atlantic.

    We set up our cameras and tripods on the cold winter afternoon, hoping for some sunlight but actually in this case the overcast weather worked better.

    I was at this point only a few weeks away from having an operation to remove a cancerous tumour, and during that time it was scenes like this that kept me motivated in my treatment and recovery.

    I'm almost a year post-cancer; I'm still photographing, I'm still leading photography workshops and tours in Ireland and you can book a private photography session with me through the site here at Panoramic Ireland.

    Send me an email to ask about photo workshops in your area of Ireland.

    The Mightiest Tree in the Forest

    The mightiest tree in the forest, an Irish woodland.

    A recent visit through an Irish woodland saw me find and photograph the mightiest tree in the forest, pictured here.

    It can't be done, to cut down this tree with a herring - I thought to myself.

    Well, I did find a shrubbery before finishing up on my quest to photograph this fine, green place.

    Sunset Silhouette in Dublin

    Dublin is a place of colour and charm, here the setting sun brightens up the sky over the River Liffey.

    On the photography workshop we experimented with silhouettes of the famous skyline from this part of Dublin.

    The colours and dark outlines of the city's buildings captured the atmosphere of the evening in the Irish capital.

    Join Panoramic Ireland to photograph Dublin on one of our Dublin Photo Tours.

    Green and Grey in an Irish Winter

    I often get asked about how the weather is in Ireland in winter.

    Well, it's hard to say anything definitive but in general, Ireland is green all year round including in winter.

    Just like in the image above from the west of Ireland in December.

    Typically a winter daytime temperature will be around 5C but colder conditions and snow sometimes occur. The mild winter temperature is what allows the grass to keep its healthy green colour, blanketing the countryside.
