These guided photo tours of Dublin City take in optimal photographic locations and combine them with a photography workshop, helping you to capture Dublin. Each tour aims to provide you with new skills to assist you to expand your photography skillset and learn how to get the best out of your photography equipment.
The tours are designed for all photographers, irrespective of your camera gear, current level of skill or shooting styles. The objective is to offer you hands-on guidance and direction to help you on the path to understanding your equipment and how to get improved results to increase that wow factor in your photographs. With this in mind, the tours are limited to a maximum group size of five people. This is to allow time for one-to-one tuition as you move along the tour route.
While the tour is not a historical walking tour, there are stories to be shared about of many of Dublin's historical landmarks with you as you go along the route.
