I hold Landscape Photography Workshops around the beautiful county of Mayo. These are aimed at people who have a basic working knowledge of their cameras and are looking to improve their landscape and seascape images.


I hold regular Beginner Classes and also offer Private Tuition. These are especially for those that are just starting out as well as those that have had a Dslr camera for some time, but need to get up to speed with it.


I teach an introduction to Adobe Lightroom one day course. This is designed for those starting out with post processing. I go through my own workflow that will get you up to speed with managing, editing and outputting your images.

Workshop Testimonials

"Thanks John, for a wonderful course, learnt loads, now to put it all into practice, can't wait to go on another of his workshops. Highly recommended."

Melville Cook
"I recently attended one of John's Wild Atlantic Way workshops and I would highly recommend it to anyone considering doing a workshop. John has an intimate knowledge of all the best locations to shoot from and he has a top class way of explaining and showing how to take the best shots at the locations. Highly recommended."

Tyrone Tobin
"John organized an enjoyable and very educational daylong workshop that took in the Mayo landscape and coast. His enthusiasm for the craft, along with the ease with which he combined the technical and aesthetic sides of photography, made it an invigorating experience. It was a highlight of our week in the west of Ireland."

Adriel Bettelheim
"I had a great day with John! We went to some gorgeous places, and he taught me so much about using the manual setting on my camera, which I had always been too intimidated to try. I learned a lot, got some great shots, and thoroughly enjoyed his company along the way"
