One to One in the West

Join me for a hands-on One to One Landscape Workshop around the beautiful county of Mayo. We may also stray into parts of county Galway.
We can also head to Achill Island on this workshop.

Some people prefer, and benefit more from this One to One approach. This workshop is for people who have a working knowledge of their cameras and are looking to improve their landscape and seascape images.

Together, we will design the workshop to suit your requirements.

If there’s any particular aspect or specific location you want to cover, then this workshop may be more suitable for you. We will decide all of this in advance of the day.

The workshop will start with a chat about where we will be going and what to expect. Then we will drive out to our chosen locations. Together, we will explore each location, all the while learning how to actually “work the scene” to get the best possible image.

I cannot guarantee fine weather – in fact, sometimes we may not want it to be fine. This is the West of Ireland after all!

There will be hands-on instruction including; Shooting in Manual Mode for Ultimate Control over your Image Making, Effective Composition and Use of Light, The Benefits of Shooting in Raw Format, Understanding Aperture priority and Shutter Priority, Understanding Exposure, ISO and Depth of Field, Working with Filters, Long exposure imagery and creative Intentional Camera Movement.
We will delve into the finer points of each topic in order to give you a better understanding.

During the workshop, I will tell you all I know about capturing the scene around us. I will teach you the technical side of photography as well as the aesthetics.

Creative ICM workshops

At all times, you will have my undivided attention and can ask me any question about photography. In this regard, I will be hoping to show you, not just how to take a photograph, but why you should take it.
Make sure your battery is fully charged and you have formatted your memory cards.Girl at sunset at Devlin
Pack your wellies or boots. There may be a little walking over uneven, muddy or sandy ground, but nothing too strenuous.

Bring warm and waterproof clothing, hats and gloves. This is the West of Ireland, so you should be prepared for rain, wind or sunny skies.

The One to One Workshop will last as long as you decide and until you are happy to “call it a day”.
The workshop costs €200 for the workshop. The workshop fee includes all transportation during the workshop.

Not included is transport costs to/from the workshop start/finish point or any food/drink. Bottled water is provided.

The group Workshop will last up to 6 hours and costs €120 per person. The maximum group I take is three participants. Class size is small by design to allow for plenty of one-on-one instruction opportunities.

The workshop fee includes all transportation during the workshop. Not included is transport costs to/from the workshop start/finish point or any food/drink. Bottled water is provided.

Some people benefit more from a One to One workshop and I cater for these as well.
This workshop includes all of the above with the added benefit of having my undivided attention for the day.

We will delve into the finer points of each topic in order to give you a better understanding of the photographic process.

Beforehand, we will both sit down and discuss any particular requests that you may have. This workshop will be all about your preference and what you want to shoot.

I will have my Macbook and Adobe Lightroom along for the day and I will go through my workflow to show how I’d process a photo. We’ll even do it on a photo that you’ve taken on the day.
