Northumberland Workshop Testimonial

Having been on various photography trips over the last 2+ years, taking part in a multi-day workshop-style trip this time round was an altogether more rewarding experience, especially in part due to the care & attention Rodney provides to everybody.

Rodney went the extra mile to ensure we got to the right locations at the right time, in the right conditions. What impressed me most was how Rodney seemed to be able to precisely locate the nuances and sweet-spots of each location … many of which would not be entirely obvious, except for his artistic eye.

Best of all, I advanced my photography skills - Rodney helped me climb a couple of wrungs of the ladder. I learnt SO MUCH over the few days. By that I mean a refining and rethinking of what I’ve been doing over the years. I felt that I had embarked on a v2.0 of my overall photography.

That generous, impartial, helpful refining process that’s available on-tap, is what makes Rodney’s trips that bit special.

A final thought - it’s the first photography trip where I didn’t hit the the office the Monday morning afterwards like the walking-dead ;-) I have to give Rodney kudos for being very smart with the seasonal timing of his trip: the sunsets & sunrises and what happens in-between.

All in all, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND a trip with Rodney O’Callaghan Photography if you want to advance your skills, take-in gorgeous landscapes while still taking time-out, and have a laugh while you’re at it.

Here are a selection of testimonials from previous participants which took place on this tour/workshop.

I went to Northumberland on a five day workshop with Rodney last weekend. From the moment we left Dublin everything was meticulously planned to give us the maximum locations, a great variety of landscape/seascape types, great learning experiences on light, balance and composition. Every aspect of the workshop had been researched in great detail down to the cafes we stopped in for lunch! Each day we were driven to great vantage points where we could make the most of the stunning scenery. We got great care and tuition and had a thoroughly enjoyable experience with great company! I would not hesitate to recommend this workshop to anyone and will be back with Rodney to many of the other great locations he has to offer.
