Experience hosted by Mark

2.5 hours
Includes food
Up to 5 people
Hosted in English

What you'll do

We will begin with a quick photography overview based on your knowledge so you can make the most of the day. Any skill level with any camera or camera phone can be used for city photography. More experienced photographers can use their skills to up their game with additional instruction for shooting architecture, long exposure and using camera filters. When I am away I love to indulge my passions of Photography and Food and thats what we will explore with this experience. Walking through the city we will photograph some of the city's visually unique locations and settings. During the tour we will have one to one mentoring. We will explore some out of the way and more hidden unusual places for an interesting take on the city as well as paying particular attention to the food heritage of Cork and it's famous English Market. We will see some of the fabulous local craft cheese, fish, bread and spiced beef finishing with local snack included in the price. During this time we will review our images with photo tips and critique. If it is high summer and bright weather we can move this to an evening version.
Other things to note
If it looks like rain please bring a waterproof coat and an umbrella ( To protect the camera, although I will have a few camera rain protectors! )

Mark was extremely knowledgeable and helpful! He took me to two different locations in Cork to shoot both modern and medieval architecture. We talked a lot about the proportions and lighting of a great photo and chatted about cameras. Mark was kind enough to lend me some clip on lenses for my iPhone so I could take exceptional photos for a smartphone! Very fun and informative trip.

Een leuke ervaring om een keer te doen! We hebben met Mark een aantal locaties in Cork bezocht, waar hij veel over de techniek van fotografie heeft toegelicht. Mark heeft veel inhoudelijke kennis en je merkt dat hij een passie heeft voor zijn vak! We hebben met filters en statief gewerkt, wat interessant was om een keer te proberen. Later hebben we de foto's tijdens de lunch nog besproken. De kennis die we hebben opgedaan kunnen we zeker nog gebruiken!

Mark was an amazing instructor and host! I’m a beginner so throughout the tour he explained everything from the technical settings to how set up a shot. Along the way I got some amazing pictures of Cork and had a great time!

Mark did an exceptional job showing us around and showed us what to look for in photography. We were just using our iPhones that he brought so much more to this experience. It was very enjoyable and he was extremely patient and flexible. He even came to our location to make it easier for us. We really appreciated him helping us to look at the photos afterwards and do some editing.He was also very knowledgeable about the surroundings and shared with us many stories. We would highly recommend going on this tour with him. much to see and take pictures of in Ireland!
