Inspirational Landscape Photography Talks, Community Meet Up, and Lots of Camera Gear to Feast On!

THE BIG DAY @ The Royal Marine Hotel, Dun Laoghaire, Dublin : 24 Sep 2023


The Big Day has been Ireland’s headline event for landscape photography since 2016 drawing a local and international audience with a stellar lineup of speakers.  We have been proud of our work in this regard, and also so grateful for the positive response we have got from the landscape photography community. This year we’re back working with some great people within the trade including Nikon, Conns Cameras, Kase Filters, and 360 DPI.
