Improve your photography skills while enjoying the breathtaking sea- and landscapes in the West of Ireland!

My photo workshops are about improving your photography as well as getting out and about in stunning locations.
I will be out shooting with you during the courses, helping you get the shots you're after and introducing you to new ways of mastering your camera.

The workshops are targeted to the beginner, who needs a helping hand in managing their camera and creating great photos, and the intermediate, who is looking to refine their technique.

With over a decade of being a professional photographer and giving workshops since 2011, I have the experience to offer a high quality service to all my workshop clients.

The Clew Bay area between Westport and Louisburgh has so many amazing sceneries to offer to tourists, especially for those who are interested in landscape photography. With today's camera technology many photography amateurs and enthusiasts are able to own a high quality DSLR or CSC camera, but are daunted by the sheer amount of buttons, modes and settings, so that most of them still use the auto mode and don't experience the true picture quality that can easily be achieved.

If you are interesting in advancing your skills in camera handling, image composition or processing your images in Photoshop, I offer workshops to suit anyone’s needs. All workshops are on a one-to-one basis or for private groups of no more than 4 people.

An example itinerary for a 3-2hr workshop

The first night we will meet in my studio and go through any questions you might have about your camera, settings and general photographic topics. We will then venture out to the local scenery around the harbour to take the first photos and turn the theory into practice.

The second night will be spent either in the studio, if you like to learn more about portrait and studio photography, or on outdoor location(s) around Clew Bay for some sunset photos (weather permitting). During the two hours we will go through the previously learnt techniques to revise your skills and to ensure that you will return from your holidays with some stunning photographs.

The third night is reserved for post processing in Photoshop or Lightroom. We will meet in the studio where we will use the iMac with the latest software and you learn how to do the final touches on the photos you have made the previous nights and create some truly magical images in only a few simple steps.
