Workshops

Brendan offers regular mobile photography workshops throughout the year in association with Cork’s Glucksman Gallery and The Gallery of Photography in Dublin. He has also given workshops in Iceland and Cyprus. If you are interested in offering a workshop in your country, use the contact page to connect with Brendan.

The workshops are supported by Olloclip. Coming from a teaching background, Brendan combines over 20 years of helping learners to maximise their learning potential with his passion for photography. This results in a dynamic, engaging and learning-centred experience for the participants, allowing them to immediately put into practice the tips and techniques that Brendan covers in his workshops.

What people say about Brendan’s workshops:

I took Brendan’s iPhone photography workshop in the Glucksman and it opened up a whole new world of colour, movement and quirky ideas for me. Through his teachings and helpful advice, he taught us how to make the most of this nifty little gadget we call the iPhone to capture images that at first may seem relatively hum-drum but with processing take on a whole new life and meaning. This workshop is a must for people who underutilise their iPhone camera and those that are looking for something new to try.  Linda Curtin

The workshop gave me tips and skills to practise and explore with. The best part of the session was the personal attention, help with editing and getting to meet other photographers and enjoying the discussions on the day. Nicola Bessell

I would recommend the workshop because it is very informative and Brendan is very enthusiastic. I got a good grasp of how to use Snapseed for my iPhone photos. Emer Brady

I am taking away a great deal of confidence through Brendan’s patient teaching. I loved the way it all unfolded. It was brilliant not getting stuck because I didn’t understand. Everything was so carefully explained. Fran Woolf

Overall, I found the workshop very enjoyable, educational and also inspiring. Brendan’s workshop demonstrated that really great results can be achieved with just a few ingredients most of us have: a decent mobile phone camera, some cheap or free apps, and a bit of time to play around and learn. So don’t be afraid to just get out there, take some snaps, edit them and show the world. After all, everybody else is doing it! Ofer

It was well worth getting up at 3 a.m. to get to Dublin from Cambridge to attend Brendan’s workshop. Sir Cam, Cambridge.

The session was packed full of immediately helpful tips for people of any level. Jude Jarvis
