Christmas. We all love it Christmas, but shopping for Christmas gifts can be a chore.

If you are like me, you leave all the Christmas shopping to the last moment and then cannot decide what present to get for anyone. 

Give the Christmas gift that will keep on giving this year; the gift of creativity; learning how to take great photos on your smartphone.

Gift a loved a place on a photography workshop in 2024. It’s the perfect Christmas present for that creative person. 

I have many workshops coming up in 2024. Unfortunately, some are sold out, but the ones with places still available are:

Beyond the Basics: Over four Tuesdays in February, in conjunction with the Photo Museum of Ireland, I will be offering a series of 4 online mobile photography workshops. Each week you will have the opportunity to put into practice what you are learning as you create photographs to be proud of using your smartphone camera. I will give one-to-one feedback on all the images you create and you will have photos to be proud of. I can guarantee that.

Dublin Street Photography Festival – May 3 from 2 – 6. Join me as part of the first ever Dublin Street Photography Festival and learn how to create visually intriguing street photos with the best camera ever – ya, your smart phone!

Full Day Smartphone Photography Workshop – May 11 in Photo Museum of Ireland. By the end of the day, you will have learnt so much, put it into practice and I can guarantee you will leave with photos to be proud of.

Full Day Dublin Street Photography Workshop – June 29th (Pride weekend) in Photo Museum of Ireland. Learn how to overcome your fears of photographing people and scenes on the street with easy-to-implement techniques as you become a more confident and competent street photographer. Meet fellow photographers and share in the passion and excitement that street photography brings. 

What people say about these workshops:

Brendan is not just a superb photographer; he is also an excellent tutor. The course is structured to allow you put what you’re learning into practice and Brendan gives great personalised feedback on all the images. Ann McCabe (Beyond the Basics course

Highly recommended, Brendan is very patient and makes learning enjoyable. I learnt so much and got fantastic photos. Luisa Guiliani (Full day Mobile Photography Workshop)

What I am taking away from the day is different perspectives and ways of working. Brilliant to see a master at work.I really enjoyed working as a fun creative group with strong guidance and direction from Brendan. Cinzia Salvatori (Dublin Street Photography Workshop)
