Last week we had Inishowen celebrated through the lens via Brendan Divers Elena Shumilova Workshop. It was the third successful workshop Brendan from Photos from Ireland has organised running from the 26th-31st May.
Inishowen Tourism Provides Welcome Packs
There were Welcome Packs provided by Inishowen Tourism at the start of the tour to enhance their knowledge of the area and attractions here in the Peninsula. There was keen interest in the workshop as it has gathered momentum over the past years.
The lucky thirty seven international photographers coming from various locations in Europe, USA & Canada were treated to a truly special experience. Elena who is world famous for her photographs travels from Russia to host a long weekend of tuition and coaching to the group; sharing her expert skills and passing on valuable tips to get that perfect image that every photographer craves.
A Totally Memorable Experience in Inishowen
Here’s a snap shot of the feedback since they have all returned home. “What an incredible three days in Ballyliffin with some amazing new friends”. “Privileged to attend Elena’s Workshop and hope to put lots of newly acquired skills through their paces as I begin the steep curve in “people” photography!” One other participant stated “Day 3 was such a blast with a wonderful variety of locations and models. Brendan worked tirelessly to produce a totally memorable experience for everybody and you certainly delivered – you deserve such thanks for all the months of preparation and hard work – you even maneuvered the weather in our favour – The craic was mighty”.. Another wrote back via social media “I for one have some made some great new friends and besides that it was so good to see so many different cultures and people coming together through a shared passion for photography”. Finally Brendan really excelled with his transport adding the personal touch to his participant’s arrival.
Inishowen Attracts a Diverse Range of Photographers
On reflection in the airport departure lounge one of the group expressed their personal thanks by saying, “What a wonderful workshop Brendan you organised with world famous photographer Elena from Russia. It was so amazing, enjoyed every minute. Brendan you deserve an award from the Tourist Board for bringing such a diverse range of photographers from all over the world to Ballyliffin. Please pass on thanks to the Strand Hotel; so accommodating and staff were always friendly and helpful looking forward to next year thank you Brendan and Elena”.
Well that’s what we want to see here in Inishowen, happy visitors going away with special memories of a place, an experience, and people that make their vacation a must return visit.
