Personal 1-2-1 Photography Workshops with

Photo Tours Dublin

     Still learning how to use your camera and need a little help? Photo Tours Dublin offer Full and Half Day, 1-2-1 photography workshops aimed to help you understand your camera and all its settings. The workshops are designed to accommodate all levels.

     Regardless of your existing photography skill level, all 1-2-1 workshops are tailored to meet your requirements. If you are an absolute beginner having just picked up your first camera or more seasoned photographer, just looking to brush up on certain skills, the workshop is designed to suit your requirements. 

     In other words, you tell me what you want to get from the workshop and I will focus on those elements. The workshops are 1-2-1 and are designed to suit your own needs on the day. This is just a list of the subject areas that the workshop can focus on. If you have already covered any of these areas and do not want to go over them again they will not be part of the workshop. To help me design the workshop you want, I will be in contact with you at the time of the booking. The workshops can also be booked as a private tour if you would like to visit specific locations or visit hidden locations that are not well known that I have discovered over the years when exploring my hometown.
