Workshop Information – Tory Island in Focus

Words alone, no matter how finely woven, could never give a true impression of the rugged beauty of Tory, the spirit of its people or their rich cultural inheritance. Tory must be visited if one is even to begin to understand why this remote crag, two and a half miles long and three quarters of a mile wide, holds such an attraction for its inhabitants that they, like their forebears, endure the full fury of the North Atlantic winter for pleasure and the privilege of living here in summer.

Tory’s spectacular cliff scenery is complemented by a rich and varied history which is related in the islanders distinctive Gaelic. Colm Cille figures prominently in the history of this sacred island which he chose as a place of retreat and meditation for his monks. Shipwrecks, poitín smuggling and tales of violent storms have also been drawn into its folklore.

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. We will be shooting some of Ireland’s most iconic locations and this will inform the collection.

Workshop Weekend Programme

We do not set out a specific location itinerary, as Peter and Ed will bring you to the best locations under prevailing light conditions. As a general guide however, we will shooting dramatic cliffs and sea stacks as well as the Tory Lighthouse.

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.
