— ABOUT —

 

I  have worked in visuals through photography and graphics for most of my life and in a diverse range of mediums. The first commercial work was promotional templates for the revised Guinness 'harp' logo introduced in 1968, over the years I have worked with clients and artists throughout the world, published two books of landscape photography and continue to work with clients on a regular basis as well as contribute to publications and editorials.

 

Experienced in time bound assignments means any brief set to targets and objectives are delivered on time, each piece of work no matter how small or large receives the same personal attention to detail and quality, I personally undertake all the work.

 

Recent work includes: - Photography for  ' History of Dublin City University' (book publication).  Portraiture for the Royal Courts of Justice.   Photography for  'Excellence in Northern Ireland' (book publication). Photography for 'Diocese of La Crosse' (book publication).   Visual profile of  'Seamus Heaney's Homeplace ' -  Tourism Ireland.

 

Outside of commercial work I follows my personal creative path in art, montage, surrealism and figurative work.

' There are three distinct ways I work with a camera..... the first is capturing in terms of light, perspective and detail,  what I see,  a 'reality'  image that is true to my 'natural vision' and captivating to my eye and heart.   The second revolves around  photo - montage - graphic  work which flows into the surreal and the world of filters, software manipulation and imagination. The third is figurative work  and spontaneously capturing a living moment, a poise, dance or action that conveys a sense of beauty, grace, spirit and place through the human form.'

 

Having an interest in local history, heritage and culture, I have, since the mid 90s, researched, written and photographed all content for the website Causeway Coastal Route.
