Always trying to be creative and find the beauty in everyone and everything i photograph.
I studied Photography in Cork before spending 14 years with Press22 covering the Mid West of Ireland with a keen eye in Photojournalism which has led to my work being nominated for the National Press award (PPAI) 5 years running. Also working with clients such as University of Limerick, Shannon Airport, Limerick Council, Munster Rugby, IBEC, Cadburys, etc and had images published on the front and back pages of all the Irish National Papers and also in New Yotk Times, London Times, The Sydney Morning Herald and more.
I recently took the leap I'm been thinking about for a long time and now started my own venture and in recent years have found myself drawn more and more towards Wedding and Portrait Photography which was always been my great interest.
Im also a keen sports fan, following Soccer, GAA and Golf. From Newmarket but residing now in Ennis, Clare i enjoys shades of different music styles, including Jeff Buckley, Peter Gabriel, Radiohead, The Pixies. Also Loves to travel and has been on 2 round the world trips, the first for 7 months and visited New York, LA, Fiji, New Zealand, Australia, Thailand, Laos and Cambodia, the highlights being Angkor Wat, The Killing Fields, Si Phan Don, The Great Barrier Reef, Fraser Island, Tubing in Vang Vieng, Parachute jump in Auckland, Rafting on the Tully River. The second time for 6 months was a trip to South and Central America including The Carnival in Rio, Machu Pitccu, Fitz Rioy, Antarctica, Paragliding in Peru, The Pantanal Wetlands. Using the old reliable camera , the Canon Rebel on both trips i managed to save the magic of these trips.
Following these travels i managed local youths soccer team for 4 years and they had some success.
Now soley working on his this venture and I wants to make your special day or your event a day that lives forever with beautifully taken images and capturing the emotion and essence of the day.
Photography has filled me with purpose and joy, and taken me places I never thought I'd go. Iv met Muhammad Ali, had dinner with Martin Sheen, photographed a Brazilian winning World Cup team, to name just a few.
But I really feel at home when I am photographing Portraits and couples, especially weddings . At weddings, we become ourselves -- peoples stumbling blocks and masks and walls are removed due to forces of love, anxiety (and some alcohol). And to photograph this day and show how loved ones relate to each other on such a day of happiness is a special thing. Seeing a happy bride when she gets the first set of images puts the icing on the cake. I have been shooting weddings and portraits for a good few years now, and the more i do then more joy i get from them, and the stronger i feel my work becomes, and try to make each one the best wedding that I have photographed.
My client based wecsite will give you easy access to images of your day where you can favour an image just with one click and quickly select the images you love , to include in your album .
I look forward to working with you on your day or event should you wish to work with me or to meet and discuss, and together, we can take the photos to make these beautiful memories last forever.
