“To capture people and landscapes and the interactions between them in the light of a world in transition is to encapsulate an inimitable moment which will never again materialise.”
Ireland is a photographer’s paradise. Landscape, seascape, mountains and ancient monuments, coupled with the ‘softness’ of the Irish light the vistas are always changing with time of day and season.

Alternative Visions is based in Donegal, Ireland and it is here that we will offer photo-tours at a local scale – Ulster (Donegal and the North Coast of Antrim). We will show you the best locations, regardless of weather, and take you to places where the attractions reflect the very best of Ireland.  Donegal itself is Ireland in microcosm – it has it all. We will endeavour to enable you to capture that inimitable moment in the ever changing conditions which typify Ireland’s beauty.

Our tours, however, will not be limited to Donegal or the North Coast. We will also be taking tours to the rest of Ireland and internationally. Iceland, Ethiopia, Brazil, Costa Rica, Madagascar amongst others will offer photographers the opportunity to broaden their scope and horizons, to acquire an ‘Alternative Vision’.
