Dingle Peninsula Weekend Workshop

 

Coumeenole Beach, Dingle Peninsula

 

The Dingle peninsula is one of the most dramatic and beautiful locations Ireland has to offer. Stretching 30 kilometers (48 miles) into the Atlantic Ocean on the south-west coast of Ireland, this majestic peninsula consists of a dramatic sea-cliffs, sandy beaches, large sand spits, high mountains, spectacular islands, a myriad of wildlife and an archeological heritage that dates back 6,000 years.

Experience the beauty of the Dingle Peninsula with landscape photographer Kevin Langan. Kevin has been photographing this beautiful part of the world for many years now and is familiar with the best locations for you to produce great photography.

On the workshop we will be photographing around Slea Head, Clogher Head, Dunquin, Conor Pass, Mount Eagle and if the weather behaves, the Blasket Islands.

The aim of this workshop is to bring you to the best locations on the peninsula so you can produce striking images and receive individual attention from an experienced photographer to enhance your photography.

Along with visiting stunning locations on the peninsula, you will also be given instruction on the best use of your photographic equipment and how to enhance your images in photo editing software like Photoshop and Lightroom.
