Connemara, Ireland (PRWEB) August 09, 2012
Connemara Ireland Workshops has announced a 5- and a 6-day landscape photography workshop for October, 2012. Hosted at the award-winning country house, The Anglers Return, in the heart of Connemara, these all-inclusive workshops will be conducted by leading Irish landscape photographer, Peter McCabe, the acknowledged “custodian of the Irish Landscape” and winner of many prestigious photography awards. Both workshops will be limited to 8 to 10 to maximize personal instruction – and photographers of all levels of experience are welcome. The workshops will include in-the-field instruction at various landmark locations along with touring the rugged coastlines and mountains and picturesque villages of Connemara. In-depth classroom instruction “in the lab” – will cover the many technical aspects of capturing better digital images. This is a rare opportunity to combine the best-quality tutoring in landscape photography with the warmth and hospitality of Irish culture – in stunningly beautiful surroundings.
Both workshops are all-inclusive, with accommodations and all meals provided – including classic Irish breakfasts at The Anglers Return, lunches, tea/snacks during breaks and dinners at some of the finest restaurants in Clifden, Roundstone and Recess. Transportation to/from Dublin city hotels and/or Dublin/Shannon airports, and all transportation during the workshop will be provided in a 14-seat, luxury minibus. No effort has been spared to make these workshops as relaxing and enjoyable as they will be educational and non-photo companions are also welcome at a reduced workshop fee. The 6-day/5-night workshop runs from October 12 – 17, 2012, and a “long weekend” 5-day/4-night workshop from October 26-30, 2012.

ABOUT CONNEMARA: Oscar Wilde called it “a savage beauty”; Connemara is a haunting landscape of rugged mountains, sparsely inhabited valleys, desolate bogs and rocky shorelines. Located in County Galway, the westernmost corner of Ireland – where they say the next parish over is Boston – Connemara is home to wild ponies, Gaeltacht districts of Irish (Gaelic) speaking residents, historic sites and ancient ruins, the mountains and bogs of Connemara National Park, the lovely villages of Clifden, Cleggan and Roundstone – and some of the most beautiful landscapes in all of Europe.
