3 Days, 2 Nights
Donegal Photography Workshop
Untouched, and virtually unexplored, where do I even begin to describe a Donegal photography workshop. Donegal to me is Ireland’s nicest county. With its dramatic Atlantic Ocean coastline, white sand beaches, waterfalls, famine villages, castles, offshore Islands, dirt tracks that lead to mountain tops, Donegal is a place that just has it all.

This trip includes everything except flights and food. Once you arrive, I’ll look after you, transport during the tour, accommodation, guiding, and all tuition.
26th – 28th August 2022
It’s no wonder Donegal was named the “Coolest Place on the Planet for 2017” by National Geographic Traveller.
My Donegal Photography Workshop focuses on us exploring the best photography locations Donegal has to offer. From the most beautiful lighthouse in the world, Fanad Lighthouse to one of Irelands most remotest and stunning beaches and everything in between.
As with all my Photography Tours & Workshops I like to keep participant numbers small, and this photography tour is limited to only four people! This allows me to spend more one on one time with you, helping you with any questions you may have.
Our transport for the week will be in my Land Rover Discovery.
photographer and aurora guide
Photographer, Light Chaser, Aurora Guide, Web Dev, Daddy and I’ve got a very understanding girlfriend in no particular order.
There is no fixed daily itinerary on my Donegal Photography Tour. I like to work with the weather as much as possible and visit locations based on the current weather/tidal conditions. I want to maximise your chances of going home with great images!
Each day we will be on location before sunrise and shooting all day until after sunset.
The tours starts at 9am on Friday 26th August.
The tour ends after sunset (8:30pm) on Sunday 28th August.
Day 1 – Arrival Day
We’ll meet at our accommodation at 9am ready to start from midday onwards.
We’ll be getting up early (regardless of weather) to be on location 1 hour before sunrise, after each sunrise shoot we’ll head for breakfast before heading onto our next location.
Each sunset location, we’ll be there roughly 2 hours before so that we can each scope out our sunset composition.
Day 3 – Departure Day
Another full day of photography, starting at sunrise and shooting right up until sunset when the tour then ends.
Goodbyes are forever, I’ll be saying see you later as I hope you’ll join me on another adventure.
Where will we visit?
This is just an overview of all the potential locations that we will visit. We won’t get to every single location as some of the locations depend on the correct weather/tide conditions.
