Founded in 2016 by George Jackson, Dingle Darkroom offers guided photography tours, workshops and holidays for individuals and small groups based on the Dingle Peninsula, and operates throughout the year, around the entire region of County Kerry.
Dingle Darkroom tours and workshops accommodate photographers at any level of knowledge and experience, using any camera, device or phone. Photography tours, with ongoing tips on composition, lighting and exposure, are carefully planned to get “away from the beaten track” as much as possible, while also visiting the famous landscapes, seascapes and historical architecture of the area.
Photography workshops provide tuition for any level of photography in a relaxed atmosphere, where you can practice as you learn using the diverse subject matter on offer around Kerry. Photography tours and workshops can be fully customised for individuals and private groups.
Photography holidays and weekend breaks are available throughout the year, exploring the Dingle and Iveragh Peninsulas as well as the Killarney National Park.
These relaxing holidays and breaks provide a fantastic opportunity to visit and capture the wealth of sandy and rocky beaches, dramatic coastline, ancient castles, standing stones, ecclesiastical sites, remote glacial valleys, lochs and mountain passes that are situated amid the rural landscape of County Kerry.
During the summer months a trip to the Great Blasket Island is included if weather conditions permit. With small group sizes there’s plenty of time to give individual and group tutorials. The days generally begin with an optional dawn and sunrise shoot, followed by a tour with ongoing workshops and demonstrations as requested. Towards evening a superb location along the coastline is selected for a sunset and dusk expedition, with hopefully, a touch of colour in the sky to end the day on a high!
All Dingle Darkroom tours, workshops and holidays can be arranged as custom or bespoke activities.
