Western Ireland: Light & Landscape 

May 8-17, 2022

Ireland’s western region is a treasure trove of photographic possibilities. Wild landscapes, rugged shorelines with amazing geological formations, crashing seas, rolling hills, stone forts and roes, and colorful villages will provide great opportunities to capture the essence of place. More information will be coming as we finalize the itinerary.

The itinerary is designed as an active, opportunity-packed journey in creative image-making. We’ll seek out ways to make our landscapes more expressive, our details more powerful. We’ll explore off the beaten track and find locations to capture the breathtaking beauty of Ireland’s rugged southwest. We’ll be guided by a local professional.

Days are long in May, but we plan to include sunrise and sunset light, each day, where possible, and weather permitting. You’ll have breaks in midday for a rest and lunch. It’s all about photography, but we’ll fit in some scrumptious meals for sure, and if you can stay up for it, explore the local music scene at a pub or two.

We can’t wait to share southwest Ireland’s rugged and picturesque beauty with you!

Please bookmark this page and check back for more information on this around March 2021.
