I'm very happy when I'm taking photographs and I love making my clients happy. I photograph people and I photograph things for artists and businesses. Much of my work has been illustration for magazines and books, and I've had over 6,000 images published, including 25 cover-shots.
As a photography trainer I've coached many groups and individuals and I've devised and delivered photography workshops for organisations including the Crafts Council of Ireland, National Sculpture Factory, LEADER, Olympus, various arts organisations and county arts offices. My work is supported by Olympus, who ensure that I'm using the most up-to-date gear.
I photograph weddings just as an occasional pleasure. I'd like to think that gives me some advantages! No tired habits and no desire to force everybody to fit my expectations, or for those involved to be anything other than themselves, enjoying a very special day.
Home is West Cork, Ireland, where I live in the mountains with a lovely garden and my wood workshop, but I travel nationally and internationally for photography and photography training.
