Photography Group Workshops 2016



Welcome to my Photography Workshops page for 2016. My workshops are open to all levels of learning, whether you're a total beginner with your first camera, or someone who's already advancing and wanting to improve their skills.

​By holding workshops on astrophotography I want to bring the knowledge and skills I have learnt over countless nights to teach you to take amazing astro landscapes of your own! If the dates below don't suit please get in touch as I take people out 1-2-1 and can be tailored to suit your needs.

Astrophotography - Fanad Lighthouse


Capture the night sky at one of Donegal's iconic locations, Fanad Lighthouse. Fanad Lighthouse can be challenging to photograph at night due to lens flare and over exposure of the beam.
