Study Abroad

Join DCB Photography Instructors Clint Saunders and Todd Vorenkamp on this amazing photo trip to the scenic Northwest coast of Ireland.

Untouched and virtually unexplored, this ruggedly beautiful and remote part of Ireland is known as the Wild Atlantic Way. It’s no wonder Donegal was named the ‘Coolest Place on the Planet for 2017’ by National Geographic.

Nature is spectacular and bracing here, from the sea cliffs at Sliabh Liag, to deserted islands of Lough Erne, to the historic abbeys, castles and towers that display the rich history and culture of Ireland.

This program is for you and your camera– we will take you to some of the most beautiful landscapes and seascapes, from sunrise to sunset. The class includes a 6 week pre-trip online course on outdoor photography, along with classroom time in Ireland with lectures introducing you to Irish history & culture, and daily workshops on photography.
