On a favourable day we’ll take the ferry to the Great Blasket Island and visit the ruins of the old village, take a walk on White Strand and explore the near end of the island. During the other days, we’ll visit many antiquities, castles, ancient Churches and standing stones, we’ll take short walks into the hills for outstanding views, tour around the Dingle Peninsula and Kerry following backroads and tracks, visiting secluded lochs, forests, and beaches that are found away from the main roads. Experience sunrise and sunset expeditions to different locations every day. Take your photography as far as you want with group sessions and lots of 1 to 1 learning or just enjoy the tours and walks, snapping away at the stimulating and varying subjects and amazing vistas. Improve your images using simple post processing techniques with freely available software and save them for printing, internet or social media.

Weather permitting a typical day will begin with a dawn and sunrise shoot. Following breakfast at An Portan, we’ll head out to explore a different part of the Dingle Peninsula each day, visiting a varied range of subjects and locations with ongoing demonstrations and practical hands-on tuition to improve your photography. Around mid-day, we’ll stop for a break and a snack, in Dingle or any other of the towns or villages, close to our location before continuing the session through the afternoon and returning for dinner in the early evening at An Portan Guest House. Then it’s out to a stretch of rocky coastline or a sandy beach to watch the sun go down and hopefully a catch spectacular sunset to finish the day.  We’ll also take a day trip to explore the Killarney National Park and the eastern edge of the Iveragh Peninsula. If weather conditions are against us at any time we’ll still explore but we may stay closer to the minibus for shelter or even spend some time at the guest house going over photography techniques or post processing, editing, cropping and saving our images.

All the topics and subjects that we’ll cover during the photography holiday are for the most part, outlined in Dingle Darkroom’s Beginners Photography Parts 1 & 2 and the Landscape Photography workshop, though we’ll have much more time to cover everything thoroughly during group and 1 to 1 learning. In addition, we’ll have regular sessions looking over the images we are taking and discussing how we can improve on them, either out on location or later on, using straightforward post processing, editing and cropping. As a participant, you’re welcome to join in with all the group activities and sessions as much as you want, although at the same time you’re free to skip any session or activity if you’d rather do your own thing or even if you prefer a touch more sleep in the morning!
