Journey to the very edge of Europe, to a land of rugged coastline, dramatic islands, rolling green hills and spectacular mountains - welcome to Ireland.
We’ve been planning to organise this trip for many years and now we’ve finally managed to get around to it. We will focus on a small area of Ireland which offers amazing diversity of photographic subjects, but avoids having to travel too far during the trip. We have identified four locations, spending a couple of nights in each, before moving on to the next.
One of the highlights of the trip will be a stay on the Blasket Islands, which will offer a great experience of isolation, where all you need to worry about is what to take a photo of next - the seals on the beach, the village ruins, or the stunning seascapes.
Combine this with the vast range of subjects from the other three locations - castles, a shipwreck, a bluebell woodland, dramatic mountains, waterfalls, classic seascapes and the charm of the the small Irish towns we will be staying in, and you’ll get an amazing eight days of photography and adventure.
Meet your hosts...
Marcus McAdam has been a professional photographer for almost 20 years. Having started his career as a travel photographer, living and working in the likes of China, Italy and India, he eventually returned to the UK and set up a photography workshop business on the Isle of Skye.
He will be joined by James McCormick, as his name might suggest, has strong Irish roots, but he’ll only admit to this when it is beneficial for him. Fortunately, this is one of those occasions, as who better to lead you around Ireland than a true local?!
