What our clients say

Roland

Ireland - Kerry, Dingle & Wicklow I can highly recommend for landscape photographers. The support by Jenny and Bernard was great. Bernard, the photographer from Ireland, led us to many enchanted places that you would never find as a tourist. The visit in a rustic pub was very funny. Our group harmonized very well. Unfortunately the week was over way too quickly. We will gladly be back with Amazing Views again another time.

Margrit

Beautiful destination, extremely aesthetic landscape. Due to the rapidly changing conditions, there are atmospheric shots in the morning and evening. Good small group size with different characters, was happy to get to know all of them. Top organized and personally attended by the owner. I felt that I was in the best hands. Enchantingly charming.

Daniel

All good things come in threes – after experiencing Scotland, Croatia/Slovenia, this is absolutely true for the Ireland tour to Kerry, Dingle & Wicklow! Each of these areas offers something for everyone and even if two of them are very similar, they all have their own charm. If you have a guide with you who not only knows his trade, knows the country like the back of his hand, coupled with a great group of different people who nevertheless fit together very well, then the recipe for a great week in an incredibly beautiful landscape is perfect! By the way, the saying would have to be extended in this case: all good things come in threes - and even more! Ireland, Jenny & Bernard, we'll see you again, a Guiness (I'll stick to the pale ;)) on it!

An unforgettable week! The trip was excellently organized and the selection of the photo locations was very successful. As a beginner I was always supported by Jenny or Bernard in a competent, helpful and patient way and I also got many helpful tips. Many thanks for this great week in beautiful Ireland.

Perfect organisation, motivated and motivating photo tour guides with profound knowledge of the place, comfortable vehicles with sufficient storage space, nice and like-minded fellow travellers - this is exactly how an optimal photo tour is designed.

Isabella

Ireland, the "green island", fascinated me with its breath-taking landscapes. I could not get enough of the many facets of the green colour, the steep cliffs, the picturesque lighthouses and the countless sheep pastures. In short: My memory card was glowing... The perfect organisation and supervision by Jenny and Bernard made this trip an unforgettable, instructive and entertaining experience. A big thank you for the great trip.

Philipp

The variety of landscapes and the pure nature in the north of the island was very impressive and offered countless photo motives. I was not only fascinated by the beautiful landscapes, but also by the energy, passion and great commitment of the two photographers/guides Jennifer and Bernard. Thanks to their professional planning and organisation we were able to photograph/explore the beautiful locations of the region under the best possible weather and light conditions. We experienced so much during this week, time flew by. Even as an ambitious photographer I was able to learn a lot and always felt as in good hands. It was simply fun. Thanks a lot!

Day 1 – Arrival to Ireland and drive to County Kerry, Killarney

Individual travel to Dublin. We meet at the Dublin Airport during the morning. Afterwards we will head southwest into County Kerry. We will stay the first two nights in Killarney.
The region around the lively town of Killarney is a paradise for photography and nature lovers. Wild and rugged landscapes with magnificent forests, idyllic lakes and rushing waterfalls are waiting for you. We will put together the exact daily program on site at short notice, in order to be able to deal with the respective weather and light conditions. We will be on our way especially during sunrises and sunsets.
Due to the small size of the group, we can optimally respond to your individual needs and discuss photographic topics of your choice and immediately put them into practice (e.g. long-term exposures, use of filters, photography at night, etc.). If required, we will also have time for image discussions or tutorials on image editing.

Day 3 to 5 – Dingle Peninsula

Journey continues to the Dingle peninsula. National Geographic Traveller has chosen Dingle as "the most beautiful place on earth". During the next days you will explore the photographic highlights of this wild and romantic peninsula. Dingle inspires with its lush pastures, gentle mountains and a wild Atlantic coast. There are countless fascinating photo motifs. Here you can also follow in the footsteps of "Star Wars". Many scenes were shot in South West Ireland.
We will be on the move again during sunrise and sunset. If the weather doesn't play along, this won't prevent us from taking pictures. Especially when the sky is overcast, sea surges, waterfalls and other scenes can be photographed excellently. The result is atmospheric, mystical pictures.
