Isle of Man Photo Academy
Sitting right at the heart of the British Isles, in the middle of the Irish Sea, the Isle of Man offers up a plethora of truly unique and off the beaten path photography landscapes. The island is perfect for those looking to explore and shoot diverse locations that are a little different to the norm. Wild coastlines, dramatic mountain vistas, lush woodland glens and iconic historical ruins are all within easy reach of each other on this small and compact island which is easily explored.
“I had no idea what to expect with this little-known location, but it soon became apparent it was one of the British Isles best kept secrets.”
Take your photography to the next level with a 1-to-1 workshop designed just for you.
Let our expert guides help you get the most from your equipment and help improve your skills. All our workshops are fully flexible to cater for all levels of experience and interests. Using local professionals who know the area better than anyone, you'll be sure to be in the best locations at the right time.
Beginners will be shown the very basics of photography and become familiar with the controls of their camera. If you’re already comfortable with your camera but are looking to build on your existing knowledge then we will assess the way you currently work and make suggestions on how to improve the areas we identify as needing the most attention. For the advanced customer who already knows the technical side of how to use their equipment, we will focus on the creative side of photography, looking at how to make the most of the light and how to add maximum impact into your images.
Our workshops last for around eight hours and can be split into two separate sessions - at the start and end of the day - to coincide with the best available light. We can also do the workshop in a single session if we are working around the weather or if this is more convenient for the customer. Ultimately, this is your day and we are here to help you get the most from it.
Full day (8 hours) = £260 / Half day (4 hours) = £160. A £60 deposit is required at the time of booking, with the balance not due until the actual day itself. A 10% discount is available for three or more days booked at the same time.
