Photography Workshops Ireland Sunset Photography

Here in this west of Ireland sunset is one of my favourite images from 2017, as seen in my YouTube video here.

For over ten years I have been organising photography workshops and tours here in Ireland.

The sunset image is one of the most lambasted, often cited as a hackneyed subject matter in photography but actually, photographed correctly (like here from this Panoramic Ireland photography workshop), the sunset can be enticing, mesmerising, one of two potential perfect moments in a 24 hour period for lighting and colour.

Learn how to photograph the sunset in any conditions on a private photography workshop by contacting me here.

Join me, Panoramic Ireland, for a photography tour and workshop in the west of Ireland to learn how to photograph scenes like this.

Dublin's Four Courts and River Liffey

Dublin's Four Courts reflected in the River Liffey.


One of the city's finest buildings the Four Courts is seen here with reflections in the River Liffey at sunset.

Dating to the end of the eighteenth century, the fine building was begun by architect Thomas Cooley who designed the Royal Exchange, which is now City Hall; it was finished by Dublin's most famous architect, James Gandon in 1784 after Cooley's death.

Gandon also designed the Custom House in Dublin.

At the centre of the building a 19.5 metre diameter round hall topped with a large dome that makes for an unmistakable presence in Dublin's skyline.

The buildings were extensively destroyed in 1922 before being brought back into use in the 1930s.

And it was here that so many of Ireland's centuries-old records were lost during the Civil War - parliamentary records, parish and civil records and more. This is why it is so hard to trace Irish ancestry, so many documents were all held in one place with no copies held elsewhere, a lesson that we are all too careful of in the digital age.

More February Snow, Ireland

The snow appears to be gone for the moment but while it lasted the landscapes of Ireland's mountains were transformed.

No doubt we will see more before the summer arrives.

To join me on a photographic expedition into the mountains, contact me here.

See more of the journey into the mountains on this YouTube video.

Street Photography in Dublin

Dublin is a great city for street photography, the small size and relaxed attitude of its inhabitants coupled with small cobbled streets and alleyways makes for many opportunities to photograph people on the Irish capital's streets.

Join me, Panoramic Ireland, to photograph the streets of Dublin on one of my photography workshops throughout the year.

See panoramicireland.com/dublin for more or use the contact form to enquire.

Northern Ireland's Antrim Coast

Waves crashing into the dark rocks of the Antrim Coast in Northern Ireland

A recent commission took me back to the spectacular Antrim Coast of Northern Ireland. It would be easy to divide the coast of Co. Antrim into two sections, the Causeway Coast running east-west along the top of Northern Ireland and the Antrim or Glens Coast running north-south along the east of the island.

Panoramic Ireland run photo tours in the Glens of Antrim and along the Causeway Coast.

Photography in Stormy Weather

Photography in Stormy Weather

Stormy weather and photography often produce spectacular results, large waves, storm clouds and lightning in the sky are exciting subjects. Wind and rain means very wet conditions, despite how much you try to waterproof your camera water will always find its way in. Some SLR cameras have water resistant seals on the buttons, dials and on the lens mount but in heavy downpours your equipment is at risk.

Dublin Street Photography

Although I do not consider myself to be a street photographer because I prefer other styles, I do practice this style of photography regularly, in Ireland and in Italy where I have spent some time photographing nuns in Assisi, the calli of Venice and the hill-top towns of Umbria. I do enjoy street photography, the interactions and looking for that fleeting image, to capture a moment in time is exciting.
