If you want a photography workshop that ticks all the boxes, look no further than Mike Brown. I spent an extremely enjoyable long weekend recently attending one of Mike's workshops in Malin, Donegal. This exceeded all my expectations. Mike has a wealth of local knowledge and took us to 10 stunning and varied locations over 4 days. His teaching is excellent, both on-site and after the shoot when he shared many useful tips on post-processing the day's images. He has worked all his life in photography and entertained us with many tales and anecdotes of his experiences. The accommodation was of a very high standard and conveniently located so that we did not have long journeys early in the morning for our sunrise shoots. His home cooked breakfasts were delicious and we quickly began to look forward to this treat after our early morning session. For me, the icing on the cake was Mike's interaction after the workshop. Mike has given me a detailed critique of some of the images from the workshop and he even re-edited files for comparison. I am already looking forward to my next workshop with Mike.

Mike Brown’s weekend workshop was an inspiration. It was very much a hands-on experience. The limited number in the group ensured that there was excellent personal guidance from Mike in his easy going and approachable style. Technical aspects on camera usage and post-processing were given in an informal and easy-to-understand manner. Mike also gave fantastic advice on how to “see” a photograph in terms of creative composition. I would highly recommend Mike’s workshops. P.S. He also cooks a great breakfast!

I attended Mike’s Landscape photography workshop recently in Donegal. It was a thoroughly enjoyable weekend, where I learned loads from Mike who was very generous with his knowledge and tips and was also blown away with the amazing scenery and beaches along the Inishowen peninsula. His morning fry ups kept the troops energy levels high on those early morning sunrises!

Thanks for a great few days! Brilliant locations, fabulous enthusiasm and perfect weather! The seascapes were amazing and there was loads of time for exploring locations and experimenting with the camera. Mike gave loads of tuition, guidance and advice regarding composition, use of filters etc. I was delighted with my photos when I got home – especially the slow shutter speed effect. The accommodation was excellent and the cooked breakfasts were very welcome after the early morning shoots.

Some of the things I learned during the weekend was how important it is to take a picture at the right time and with a better eye for composition. With the helpful advice from Mike and a loan of some filters, I came away with pictures that I’m very pleased with. I have a better understanding of how to use different types of filters and what they do, which helped me choose which ones to buy when I got home. I totally enjoyed the workshop and learned loads over the weekend, I would definitely recommend it!

Had a brilliant time in the darkroom learning B&W film development and printing with Mike. He explains things in a really easy to understand way and we made some great prints. Fantastic!

The Course was brilliant and I'm so much more confident with my camera now. Mike's knowledge is second to none and he imparts it with ease and simplicity which make it great for learning. The notes he gave us are brilliant too and they are great to go back to from time to time to remind me of things he taught us.
