IRISHLIGHT is a landscape photography festival with a range of events that we hope will help to inspire and educate the landscape community in Ireland and abroad.

The festival is run by Peter Gordon and Jelena Derk as a forum to pull the best professional Irish based landscape photographers together, bring international photographers to Ireland while also mobilising the amazing enthusiast talent that exists both here and abroad.

Over time the IrishLight programme has evolved and morphed and the range of events have changed.

THE BIG DAY is our headline seminar event with great speakers and a trade presence. It’s a must-see day out for any photographers that want to hear inspiring talks from top International and Irish talent. Our speakers are visiting Ireland to speak for the first time so it really is a unique chance for some next level inspiration. We have some fantastic landscape photographers in Ireland and this event is a chance to see the best of the best international landscape photographers.

In 2023 we are bringing Nick Page to teach you something new. Don’t miss Mastering Luminosity Masks workshop with Nick Page. It’s a unique chance to work with great international shooters here in Ireland.

The IrishLight Open call COMPETITION is looking to find the very best amateur photography of the Irish landscape. The best images win some amazing prizes from Nikon, Kase Filters, 360 DPI & ExploreLight.
