Kevin Langan | One-to-One Landscape Photography Workshop

 One-to-One Landscape Photography Workshop

 

 

This one-to-one landscape photography course is designed for owners of a digital SLR who would like to develop their skill's to reach the next level. 

The location for the course will be the Dingle Peninsula, specifically around Dunmore Head and its surroundings. The locations I have selected around the peninsula are particular favourites of mine, and one's I have photographed regularly over the years. They offer a rugged beauty second to none, and inspire me every time I visit the area.

Note: If you would like to take the workshop in a different location in Kerry or elsewhere, please contact me by email or by phone (+353 (0)87 6722325) to arrange details.

The goal of this workshop, is for you to come away with a greater knowledge of subject and having learned how to create great images.
