Yusuf and Jane have been running their creative photography workshops for the past two years from their studio based in the idyllic surrounds of Marlay Park, located at the foot of the Dublin Mountains. Our aim is to use our creative passion to preserve and raise awareness of the Alternative photographic processes and Analogue photography once thought to be slowly fading out in an ever-increasing digital era.
