Workshop Information – Clare Island in Focus
Clare Island is the largest (5 miles long and 3 miles wide) of the 365 islands in Clew Bay. Famous as the ancestral home of the legendary Pirate Queen Grace O’Malley (Granuaile), she has a population of about 160 people. Clare Island’s silhouette is dominated by the giant hump of Knockmore at 461metres on her western edge and the more gently sloping Knocknaveen to her centre. Her western cliffs are among the most dramatic in Europe and are home to large numbers of nesting sea birds.
Theme and Concept
The concept of the IrishLight workshops is to create a unique body of work, guided by workshop leaders, and executed by you the participants. Your images from the workshop will form the IrishLight collection 2017 and will be promoted both domestically and internationally as a collection of work. Read more here about IrishLight Collection 2016 HERE ..
This year’s theme is An tOileán – The Island. Expect your work to be turned into and exhibition and a book all in aid of charity. A workshop like no other. Peter Gordon will liase with you after the workshop, help you edit and prepare your work, for final presentation.
Workshop Weekend Programme
We do not set out a specific location itinerary, as Michael will bring you to the best locations under prevailing light conditions. As a general guide however, we will be shooting ruins, lighthouses, dramatic cliffs and beautiful abstracts.
The workshop commences on Thursday afternoon. After a welcoming discussion we will get out for an afternoon shoot and sunset. Friday & Saturday will entail sunrise to sunset shooting with a short break after breakfast to maximise our chances of making great shots. We will finish up on Sunday after our sunrise shoot. Logistics of the trip will be emailed to participants when they sign up for the workshop.
Following the workshop Peter Gordon will edit your favourite 3 images from your workshop to be included in the Irish Light collection 2017.
