Join Starting Point Photography for classes in Dublin, Ireland next March!

We are inviting beginner photographers who want to learn how to create better images to travel with us next March, 2020 to Dublin, Ireland!

We had a great time in Lisbon, Portugal at the very first workshop and want to do the next one in the beautiful Emerald Isle. The heart of Ireland is Dublin, a world famous city with charm and adventure to spare.

We all carry a camera around with us – whether it’s on our phones or a dedicated device. But many people don’t know what makes for a great photo. They just click away and “hope it comes out”.

Wouldn’t it be great if you could go someplace and have a professional instructor teach you how to take good pictures and be at your beck and call to help you capture the shots you see – no matter what kind of camera you have?

Would you like to come back from vacation and have people actually *want* to see your vacation photos? Or to have images you can proudly print out and display on your walls or to give as gifts to family and friends?

Wouldn’t it be great to go to a beautiful place and learn, not only how to take pictures of that place, but to gain knowledge that will help you with every photo you take afterward?

We will meet on four of the mornings and two of the evenings we are in Dublin to learn about specific aspects of photography – Composition, Landscape, Portraits, and Street/Black and White. We will spend an hour or so going over the concepts and then “hit the streets” as a group to practice the theory. After lunch, you’re free to explore, shop, relax, or continue to hang out with Melissa and I taking photographs. The classes will also be specific to Dublin – the locations, the conditions, the lighting, etc.

On the last night of the trip, we’ll have dinner and do a “photo critique” of our images and I’ll give you additional tips and tricks on how to make them even better in editing.

The Starting Point Photography sessions (at least six multi-hour sessions) will be US $1200/person (double occupancy) and include:

  • Round-trip economy class airfare to Dublin
  • 6 nights hotel in Dublin
  • 6 Starting Point Photography classes

Class size will be limited to TEN STUDENTS. You can reserve your spot by paying US $250 upfront (before October 31st, 2019).

For those of you who know me and/or Melissa, you’ll know we’ll have a lot of fun learning about Dublin, Ireland and photography! Please contact me via email at for more details. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask.


Before October 31st, 2019, we will offer full refunds to all participants. After October 31st, 2019, NO REFUNDS will be offered but, if you must cancel after that date, you will still be welcome, free of charge, at any future Starting Point Photography trips of this nature (Photo Tourism type events).
