Earlier this year we teamed up with Travel Department to bring you the first of our photography holidays abroad. On October 23rd a group of eager photographers boarded a 7.20am flight and were Iceland bound. Iceland is known as the ‘Land and Fire and Ice’ making it a perfect destination for a photography break. Once the wheels of the plane safely touched down on the runway, this mesmerizing country with spectacular photographic opportunities was waiting to be explored. Before all the ‘hard work’ began an early morning pit stop was made at the Blue Lagoon for a rejuvenating dip.

The next four days were filled with photographing some of the most breathtaking sights this planet has to offer. From the natural wonder of Reynisfar, the volcanic black sandy beach to photographing behind the falls and listening to the mighty roar of the Seljalandsfoss waterfall. At night we travelled away from the glow of Reykjavik city in search of the Aurora Borealis. By day we explored the Golden Circle, passed through picturesque villages and countryside and were blown away ‘literally’ in the valley of Haukadalur by the spouting geothermal geysers.

Travel Photography Course in Dublin.

Dublin Photography School are hoping to announce a new Travel Photography Course in the last week of September, this course will take place in Dublin and will be aimed at all users and levels.

The Travel Photography Workshop is looking like it will take place in a one day format and will be run on Saturdays throughout the year.

Although the course has not been finalized here is a sneak peak at what we are hoping to include:

The course will take place from 10am – 4pm and will be split into three sections

Section one: Trip Preparation

This section will include things like planning your trip, making shot lists, what gear to bring, what lenses to pack, air travel considerations, luggage weight etc,

Section two: How and when to shoot

This section of the travel Photography Course deals with things like shutter priority, aperture priority, P mode, and how to shoot, how to compose travel shots, what to look for, how to photograph street portraits, reportage, documentary, setting a theme, shooting landmarks, getting off the beaten track and how to really get away from cliché shots and give your images more of a travel feel than a tourist feel. This section will make up the bulk of the day and will really show you how to get so much more from your images while travelling.

Section Three: Post Trip

Now that you have just had the trip of a life time are you just going to leave your images sitting on a hard drive, we will show you some great ideas for things like photo books, coffee table books, montages, collages and really bring your images out on display

Please note that the travel photography workshop has not been finalized and will be announced in the last week in September, when it is finalized you can book the Travel Photography course in Dublin here.
