West Coast of Ireland Photography Workshop – Spouse / Partner Site Seeing Tours*
October 1st – 10th, 2019
Why a Couples Tour?
Are you a photographer who enjoys going on vacations with your spouse or significant other? Do you find your shooting time constrained because the other person is not interested in you talking so much time away during your joint vacation for photos! Are you always finding your self in a hurry to get your shots and missing out on capturing moments when you leave that special spot to get back to your spouse/partner!
If so I have a solution for you where both parties are happy. I am offering a unique photo workshop on the West Coast of Beautiful Ireland where I will take out the photographers daily to scenic locations that I have already scouted. While we are out photographing to our hearts content my wife will be escorting your non photographer spouse or significant other on daily tours to Ireland’s treasured locations. At days end we will all meet back at the hotel to enjoy a lovely meal together and share each others daily stories.
This is a win-win for everyone as they get to do exactly what they came to Ireland for and not compromise each others agendas.
*This is a couples only workshop for the photographer and non photographer!

Why choose Visionary Photography Workshops.
