Landscape Photography Workshops in Ireland

Panoramic Ireland, that's me by the way - my name is Darren, create photography workshops and tours in Ireland.

My private and small group tours and workshops are designed to work with your schedule and your interests, to help improve your image making skills or to show you the best, mostly hidden, places in Ireland.

Because my tours are private, it can be a combination of all of the above.

Learn how to make better landscape images with me, a professional travel photographer who has worked with the biggest names in international publishing, photographed many of the world's biggest bands and has been exploring Ireland ever since (and before actually) graduating with a Bsc Hons in Geography.

From Fair Head to Mizen Head, the Antrim Coast to County Cork, Dublin to Galway - each and every corner of Ireland.

And of course please feel free to ask any questions.

I look forward to seeing you in Ireland with your camera in hand!

Wisping Pink Cloud over Mountains at Sunset in Ireland

The beauty of landscapes, it's not just the famous places that should attract the photographer's attention.

In fact, the hidden places are what makes Ireland an amazing landscape photography destination.

Those famous places are without doubt, scenically stunning - the Giant's Causeway in my own native county for instance, the Dingle Peninsula - Ireland's most westerly point, both of these places are amazingly beautiful and amongst the most scenic in the world. Ireland has no shortage of world-class scenic locations but most of them are not well known.

Sunset sunlight on the Atlantic Ocean, Ireland

Bright and characterful sunset sunlight on Ireland's Atlantic Ocean.

This image comes from the western edge of the Emerald Isle as the late evening sunlight fades behind rain-bearing clouds to give dramatic lighting on the ocean's surface.

As we waited for the same sunlight to strike the Cliffs of Moher we turned our cameras toward the west and were not disappointed.

Autumn Lanes of Fallen Leaves

The lanes of Ireland are a favourite photographic subject of mine.

Here, the final leaves of 2018 were falling - covering the ground with russety autumnal colour as the bright sunlight shines, casting shadows and making the whole scene more enticing.

Here are a few more of my favourite laneway scenes that I have photographed over the years:

Sometimes, as here in this image the journey is as scenic as the destination.

On our way to a photography workshop in the west of Ireland, heavy rain arrived - contrary to the forecast for the day, so we stopped to photograph what was only one of many scenic roads on our Wild Atlantic Way drive.

This section of narrow, twisty road was perfect as it was lined with trees and radiated fresh green colour on the overcast day.

This brings into focus, excuse the pun, what to do when the weather forecast doesn't go to plan - be ready to adapt.

Ireland's West - Perfect for Photography

The West of Ireland is a perfect location for landscape photography, thankfully it's a place that I know very well.

Rugged mountains, wide open landscapes and plenty of interesting sky as well as the culture and heritage of the western seaboard make this area worthy of a visit but specifically for the photographer it has everything to offer.

Exploring and Photography

I'm a photographer, I'm also a tour leader, geographer and explorer.

I was thinking today about exploration and how, sometimes, a day's exploration can bring unexpected results.

Here, a short walk along a riverbank turned into more of an adventure than I had planned on, traversing the river and climbing over rocks brought me to this picturesque section of the watercourse, lined with autumnal leaves and this fallen tree that made for a good place to stop and set up my tripod.

Blue Evening in Ireland

Long Exposure Photography in Ireland

Ireland's countryside is perfect for landscape photography, here from a photography workshop covering use of filters and long exposures is an early evening cloudy sky with clear golden sunshine.

We set up our tripods and made use of the 10-stop ND filters before sunset, and here the long exposure after sunset: http://panoramicireland.com/photo-tours-blog/cloudy-skies-reflections-sunset-west-ireland-photography-course

Sunrays Like Search Beams in the Irish Landscape

Finishing up on a recent photography workshop in the Irish countryside we spotted some interesting clouds heading towards the obscured sun.

Waiting for a few moments brought scenes like this, with sun rays bursting out in all directions as if search beams scanning the countryside.

Elephant Rock, County Antrim

The Antrim Coast needs little introduction here, search on panoramicireland.com and you will find dozens of articles and images on one of my favourite parts of Ireland.

Here is one of the more interesting locations that is not on the regular tourist trail but is well known to photographers - Elephant Rock.
