Workshop Information – Great Blasket Island in Focus

Great Blasket Island is approximately 4 miles long by 1/2 mile wide. Home to an abundance of wildlife and fauna, the Great Blasket Island is thriving with Irish history and life. Occupied from pre-history, the island overlooks the location where a number of the Spanish Armada ships were wrecked. The small farming and fishing community exceeded a population of 150 in the early 20th century, but had dwindled to a small number when the island was vacated in 1953.

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 George will bring you to the best locations under prevailing light conditions. As a general guide however, you will shoot the island from the Dingle coast then spend two nights staying on the Blaskets. Stunning beaches, the old village as well as wildlife.

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.
