Dedication, Small Groups and Community

All planned from our Dublin base in Ireland

We’re big believers in going to the limits to get you the very best shot. When you come away on a workshop or tour with ExploreLight, you can expect us to push hard to get you in the best location at the best time of day. We are motivated and dedicated to our craft, and we want that dedication and motivation to be transmitted to our participants.

One more shot, one more chance, let’s make the most of this trip and come home with the very best set of images possible. We also advocate a personable approach to our trips with really great instructor-to-participant ratios. We like small groups. We don’t want people getting in each other’s way. We want a personable experience where our attendees get plenty of individual attention and a great small-group experience.

We also believe in ensuring people stay in good quality accommodation. Single occupancy as standard.  Our feeling is that if you are traveling with people you don’t know, there’s a required level of comfort and privacy at the end of the day.

The vast majority of our business is repeat business and we feel like this personable, dedicated, and caring approach is what makes us stand out. Our dedicated logistics expert Jelena Derk makes sure everything is organised with pinpoint accuracy and our photographers on the ground are there to make sure you have an amazing photographic adventure.  If you’re not convinced yet check out the team ExploreLight galleries below and some testimonials from our participants.

I thoroughly enjoyed my first trip with ExploreLight to the Lofoten Islands in Norway. The following year I visited Northern Iceland.  The attention to detail is superb… the meticulously planned itinerary including each location, comfortable transportation, and accommodations throughout the week, not to forget the fab dinner spots, made the trip an absolute pleasure. Excellent, expert guidance on settings, filters, and post-processing tips, along with plenty of chats and laughs with fellow photographers make for a fun-filled educational week in an amazing location.

Peter is a patient and inspiring tutor. In workshops, both in person and virtual, he’s able to guide and develop one’s vision, offering generously his wealth of experience both in the field craft as well as in the post-production techniques and approaches.

We have been on 4 photo tours with Explore Light. They are amazing tours guides and photographers. We are looking forward to more trips with them.

Cathy and David Des Rochers, USA

I’ve been on several trips with Peter and his team and can’t wait until I can go again. They are absolutely ‘top notch’ in every department and I cannot recommend them highly enough.

I have been on several ExploreLight Workshops and have thoroughly enjoyed every one of them.  The ExploreLight workshops are a perfect combination of excellent teaching, superb locations, and great “craic”. Your enthusiasm is infectious, even if it means getting up at 5am to shoot the sunrise, or staying out until 4 am to shoot the aurora. I look forward to returning to many more workshops with you guys.

One of the best things I ever did was book a workshop with Explore Light. The workshop exceeded my expectations.  The attention to detail and planning ensured that we had the best opportunities with the available conditions:   the shooting locations, the technical help – given in terms that anyone can understand – and the delightful camaraderie all came together to form one fantastic adventure.  I left my first workshop with so much photographic knowledge, fantastic images, and new, wonderful friends that I could not wait to book another!    I have been on three workshops so far, with another three booked.  I cannot recommend Explore Light enough!

I have been on a number of Explore light workshops. They are fantastic, Peter and his team put a huge amount of effort into organising and planning all aspects of a workshop and makes sure that everyone has lots of opportunities to get the best images that the locations have to offer. Peter has a very warm and caring personality and it is always a pleasure to be in his company.
