Photography - “to capture people and landscapes and the interactions between them in the light of a world in transition is to encapsulate an inimitable moment which will never again materialise.”
We are offering affordable photo tour exclusives. Planned from half days, to 10 days, or customised to cater for aspirations and needs. Based in Dunfanaghy, Donegal we have an enviable location the very best of the county's landscape and seascape.
Ireland is a photographer’s paradise. Landscape, seascape, mountains and ancient monuments, coupled with the softness of the Irish light, the vistas are always changing with time of day and season. Alternative Visions is based in Donegal and it is here that we will offer photo tours on a local scale – Ulster (Donegal and the north coast of Antrim). We will show you the best locations, regardless of weather and take you to places where the attractions reflect the very best of Ireland. Donegal itself is Ireland in microcosm, it has it all. We will endeavour to enable you capture that inimitable moment in the ever changing conditions which typify Ireland’s beauty.
Our tours offer photographers the opportunity to broaden their scope and horizons, to acquire an ‘alternative vision’. Alternative Visions is owned and managed by Trevor Cole and Ashley Kydd. Trevor has published images in magazines, calendars and cards and presented to the Royal Geographical Society and is a member of the Royal Photographic Society. Images have been used for educational purposes and he has exhibited in Ethiopia and Ireland. He has also reached the final of travel photographer of the year (TPOTY) in 2010, 2011 and 2013 and also reached the final of The Wanderlust Magazine travel photographer of the year in 2013 (portfolio category). His images were on display at the Travel and Destinations Show at Earlscourt in London.
Trevor was born in Derry but has lived in England, Singapore, Togo, Italy, Ethiopia, Brazil and now back in his home country. Ashley is a passionate landscape photographer with an enviable knowledge of locations in Ireland and in particular Donegal. Some of this insight comes from 30 years of sailing the coastal waters of the county and developing an intimate knowledge of beaches, arches, islands and cliff lines which are often hidden from sight.
