Peter Cox is well known for his epic style of landscape photography, on and off the ground having completed 2 unique books on the Irish landscape. One exclusively captured by the drone. Peter also has a long history of running both Irish and international workshops and its fair to say has a multitude of experience to draw on. Peter’s workshop will be based on the western fringes of the kingdom with big sweeping cliff views around Portmagee and Valentia, as well as the epic Skelligs. A quick jaunt inland from your Portmagee base and you will be amongst stunning mountains and rivers. Perfectly located for great landscape images.
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 in 2019 and will be promoted both domestically and internationally as a collection of work. The goal will be the creation of a book and exhibition as part of the festival in 2019. A workshop with a real difference.
This year’s theme is ‘Kings and Rebels’. Expect your work to be turned into an exhibition and a book all in aid of charity. A workshop like no other. Peter Gordon will liaise 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 Peter will bring you to the best locations under prevailing light conditions.
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 curate the IrishLight Collection created from the workshops and edit (if you want) your images for inclusion.
Why Come with IrishLight?
