I photograph flat artwork for artists and printmakers. My brand sponsorship (Olympus and Manfrotto) helps to ensure that I'm always using state-of-the-art cameras and lenses, and I've invested in colour calibration technology to ensure the photographs record colour acurately. Ordinarily, the images I provide are suitable for web, catalogue reproduction and for prints up to 30" x 20". I can provide larger files for huge images, by prior arrangement. I intend to tour with a super efficient mobile studio, later this year.
'The Old Pier, Union Hall'
In 2013 I photographed a wonderful collection of paintings for Paul and Aileen Finucane's book 'The Old Pier, Union Hall'. Paul and Aileen commissioned 25 artists to paint the view from their garden, and the variety of interpretations is very very interesting. The book was published by Red Barn Press, and is being sold to raise money for local charities. It's available here.
Want to learn to do your own photography?
I specialise in teaching craftworkers and artists how to photograph their work and I've run photography workshops for several arts organisations. I can tutor you, one-to-one, in how to get the best photographs using your existing camera, and simple set-ups with improvised lighting. It costs €300 for a one-day session or €320 for two half-days. Alternatively I can run a one-day workshop for your arts group or network. It costs €700 + travel costs, and may be eligible for funding.
