The Emerald Isle and its Wild Atlantic Islands
April 29 – May 7, 2024
Join us for a deep dive into the beauty of Ireland’s Wild Atlantic Way. We’ll photograph stunning locations in County Clare, the Dingle peninsula, the Blasket Islands, and Killarney with its national park. This region offers a fantastic diversity of photographic subjects along the dramatic coastline. Ireland is known for its lush farmland and stunning coast, and you won’t be disappointed as we photograph lighthouses, shipwrecks, stone cottages, castles, waterfalls, and more.
Our itinerary includes two nights in the renovated cottages on Great Blasket Island. These rustic accommodations will be an opportunity to connect to the natural wonder of Ireland in a remote setting. We’ll prepare food for you and enjoy this secluded island’s incredible peacefulness. But don’t worry. Not all of our accommodations will be rustic! We’ll also enjoy some fine hotels and fantastic meals.
The varied landscape offers a wide variety of photographic opportunities. Perfect your skills by using polarizing and neutral density filters, capturing sweeping landscapes and the local culture. The spring flowers offer an excellent opportunity to work on your macro photography skills. We’ll be instructing on all these techniques, and then we’ll see how they were put into practice during our signature image review sessions. We’ll explore Lightroom’s technical and creative options as we review your images and demonstrate key photo-processing concepts.
This workshop is designed to maximize opportunities and minimize travel time. With such an incredible diversity of photographic opportunities in this region, you’re sure to come home with memories and photographs to last a lifetime.
