Photography Courses Ireland 2020
From beginner to intermediate levels, I provide two course options which teach "The Fundamentals of Digital Photography" in Ireland. I currently run private one to one lessons as well as group based workshops. My workshops are full day events normally run from 10:30AM - 5:30PM. Based in Galway, the workshops are €120 per person. I run the beginners workshops monthly in various locations throughtout Ireland, please contact me for details of upcoming workshops which may not be published yet.
These courses are about accelerated learning and are very practical and hands on. The full day workshops are also a good opportunity to meet like minded peers, learn, practice and have some fun along the way.
My private lessons are 4 hours and cater for skill levels from beginners to advanced where we tailor the course to meet your specific photography or photo editing requirements priced at €240. View pricing & full details on both courses using the links above

Attendee feedback from a photography workshop
Based on Gerard's recommendations, I purchased a Nikon D3200 DSLR camera with an additional prime lens before attending one of his beginner’s photography workshops in Galway. While Gerard stated that I didn't necessarily need to have a camera before his workshop, as he would be providing advice on purchasing camera bodies and lenses at his workshop, I felt I would benefit the most by having the camera beforehand. As a total novice when it came to cameras, having being using my iPhone for photos, I was delighted to see that Gerard really did a great job in explaining and simplifying its use. I run a craft business and was delighted to be able to take my own stock photos for my blog, something I certainly would not have imagined doing before attending Gerard's workshop. Thank you Gerard for such an insightful learning experience!

Attendee feedback from a workshop
Had the pleasure of attending the day long workshop with Ger and found it really useful. The course was professionally delivered and I found Ger extremely knowledgeable and engaging. The materials and techniques thought were brilliant and have allowed me to make very informed decisions around upgrading my camera in addition to providing me with improved ability to utilise my camera for a variety of scenarios. I would highly recommend the workshop to anyone interested in improving their photographic skill set.
