SCARRIFF-BASED photographer James Treacy has launched a new photography course in his native town.
He claims any student who finishes the course has the potential to earn more than €90,000 per annum.
The first course he is running is based in McNamara’s in Scarriff on Wednesday, September 29, at 8 pm for two hours a week over five weeks.
He intends to cover all the basics of photography and how to take good pictures with a Canon or Nikon DSLR camera as well as editing photos using software such as Photoshop.
Mr Treacy says he started out a number of years ago photographing pilgrimages in the Holy Land and Fatima before turning his attention to Holy Communions and Graduations and later cattle mart photography in which he does a lot of work for the Irish Examiner and the Irish Independent.
He has travelled all over the world with his camera and has been to every cattle mart in Ireland worth talking about from Tullamore to Bandon and from Dungarvan to Maam Cross and there is very few newspapers in which his work has not been published.
His proposed classes will be small in number with personal attention guaranteed.
The price of the course is €195 and is the only one of its kind in Co. Clare at the moment.
He will show students that it is possible to take good photos with a basic DSLR Camera.
He also intends giving work to some of his students in wedding photography after the course but he doesn’t know at the moment how many he will hire.
He can be contacted on 061921470 / 0860572216 or email firstname.lastname@example.org web www.jamestreacyphotography.ie
