    This will be just unmissable for anyone wishing to see a bit of Ireland and learn some Photography in seriously good company.

    I hope to join in the fun at some stage.

    I'd sell Dinesh's soul to attend, but he doesn't have one, so what to do? BTW, does he still owe you guys $$ for drinks?

    I believe he skipped a round which is an extraditable offence here in Ireland. We want him back to face...the barman :D

    I hope to meet a few more APUGers and hoping some sign up on this Tour.

    It's also a good reason for being locked into the bar until the round has been bought and paid for.

    We are looking forward to this workshop/tour, a chance to spend time with Les, with a variety of shooting subjects, during a big party, talk about win-win.

    Naturally APUGers are very welcome to join us, look forward to seeing you Fintan.

    If you guys can sell it to my wife, I'll bet there! :tongue:

    Forget about The Banana, the reason he is so named is that he has deep pockets and no arms!

    Dinesh,

    Don't forget the Irish don't need to kiss the Blarney stone, I'm sure we can sell it your wife. Either that or bring her with you!

    Details finalised

    Hi all,

    Just wanted to let you all know that after discussions with Les it has been agreed that there will be an optional digital element to the workshop whereby participants will be able to do some digital printing with Les and go home with a print, he will also cover matte cutting.

    Traditional photography will naturally be more than welcome but to keep within the philosophy of APUG, we felt that it would be more appropriate that the full details in HybridPhoto, for those that are interested it can be found at:

    http://www.hybridphoto.com/forums/showthread.php?p=6105#post6105

    We would like to stress that film photographers are very welcome to attend.

    Hi all,

    Just wanted to let you know that the places on the workshop are filling rapidly, if you are thinking of coming do book soon so as to avoid disappointment. It's shaping up to be a multi-national event with participants from Ireland, UK and USA on board now.

    Nicole/Dinesh,

    Cost of an air ticket would be cheaper than your soul! Pity you can't be here.

    Anyhow, just to let you all know we have just 2 places remaining.
