We run guided photo tours and workshops to personally selected locations across Ireland, the UK and Europe, which are designed to help you get the best out of each location and to improve your skills in landscape photography. On a photo tour or workshop with Purple Peak Adventures you will benefit from our intimate knowledge of each location and how to optimise your photography skills. Our one day courses, photography tours and courses are tailored for both experienced landscape photographers and beginners.  If required, during the course of a trip we can provide customised tuition to help to you make better images. We are also happy to provide a post-location critique of your images during the course or trip to help you understand your ability and to improve your photography.

Our courses and trips are limited to a small number of participants so that we can provide personal attention to all participants and also to have the opportunity to optimise access at each location. Singles and couples are catered for; all-female and larger groups can be accommodated by arrangement. All of our multi-day trips include accommodation and transport; please see the trip itineraries or course descriptions for more details. We can also provide one to one workshops and trips, customised to your requirements.

All of our courses are run by Purple Peak Adventures professional photographer, Martin Critchley. For the past ten years he and Sharron have enjoyed travelling independently in six continents and have enormous experience trekking in wilderness areas and through many of the world’s great mountain ranges. During our travels we discovered that the world looks infinitely more interesting and wondrous through a camera lens. We began making videos to record our travels at home and abroad, and progressed onto creating films incorporating timelapse and drone footage. Many of these are on our YouTube channel and footage from them has been used by film companies in the Republic of Ireland, Northern Ireland, Britain, and Japan, including the BBC. For past three years we have been running photo tours to Cornwall, The North Atlantic and Arctic Scandinavia. We have travelled the world and aim to pass on our experience to bring you to the next level through our trips and courses. See testimonials below from previous clients.
