First established at PermaJet’s premises in Stratford-upon-Avon, the renowned training school has taught hundreds of photographers how to bring their images to life through the art of print around the UK.

Now you can join esteemed PermaJet Lecturer, Michael O’Sullivan, in multiple locations in Ireland. Michael is the Former Chairman and founder of Cork International Salon of Photography, past president of the Irish Photographic Federation, and is a very experienced photographer in both the amateur and professional arenas, having had his work published internationally.
