Workshop Information – Bere Island in Focus
Bere Island lies at the entrance to the magnificent Bantry Bay and guards the deep water harbour of Berehaven, in West Cork, in the South West of Ireland. The island is just 2kms offshore from the town of Castletownbere, the largest white fishing port in Ireland. The Slieve Miskish and Caha Mountain ranges of the Beara Peninsula tower over the island providing a dramatic backdrop. The island is roughly 11kms x 5kms in size with a population of just over 200.
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 Norman will bring you to the best locations under prevailing light conditions. As a general guide however, we will be shooting lighthouses, dramatic shorelines as well as elevated mountain views from the centre of the island.
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.
