Hello and thank you for visiting my website . I am a Limerick based photographer but also cover weddings and other photographic assignments throughout Ireland and abroad .
Describing my photographic style - ' relaxed with an arty twist ' or ' free flowing and contemporary ' would be a good start !
I am a great believer in being comfortable photographing weddings in both reportage and semi formal styles. Both styles of photography compliment each other and it underlines my approach to wedding photography.
I really see photography as an artform and a powerful platform to express myself as a visual artist . From my earliest days shooting on 35mm film to today's incredible digital camera technology , photography has always been my passion.
Pictures tell life stories and wedding photography is such an important story to tell. I love the idea that I can be the observer and the archiver of events.
Music and film are also particularly close to my heart . There are just so many parallels between film and photography. Film often inspires me in my photography especially the way lighting is used or how a scene has been directed - it always fascinates me .
I am also a portraiture photographer, having trained in the U.K and Ireland with some of the great portrait photographers such as Bjorn Thomassen and Frank Doorhoff .
My journey in photography has taken me so many places and I have met so many interesting people . This is what I love about photography - its a bit of a 'walk on the wild side' and not for the faint hearted but it rewards and enriches you so much through personal development, both as a photographer and visual artist .
