Fanad Head Lighthouse by Northern Irish Photographer Gareth McCormack

What would you class as the essential ingredients for landscape photography?

Knowing how to find and use great light is the prime factor. After that, in the digital age, you need a skilled hand and critical eye in Photoshop to make the most of the capture. Unfortunately too many people overwork their images these days; the mark of a good photographer is knowing how to get the balance right.

Glenariff by Irish Photographer Gareth McCormack

If you could take only one part of Ireland as your favourite to shoot in where would it be?

The whole western half of Ireland from the Antrim coast right through to Kerry is incredibly photogenic. If I had to pick out a single location it would probably be the Dingle Peninsula.
