Killarney Weekend Photography Workshop - Gap of Dunloe & Tomies Wood


Gap of Dunloe


Experience the beauty of the Killarney 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.

Killarney in County Kerry has some of the most spectacular natural beauty in Ireland. It is an area that is dominated by high mountains, rugged valleys, beautiful lakes, sublime natural woodland, spectacular waterfalls and ever changing skies. It is one of the best locations to photograph in Ireland because of its diverse typography flora and fauna, and one I keep returning to photograph time and time again.

On this workshop we will be photographing around the spectacular mountain pass of the Gap of Dunloe and the native oak woodland of Tomies wood. 

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

Along with visiting stunning locations, you will also be given instruction on the best use of your photographic equipment and photo editing software such as Photoshop and Lightroom.
