For over 20 years I have edited and published Dining In Dublin, a restaurant magazine. Covid hit and like many others I found myself at a loss and with a lot of time on my hands for the first time in many years. I asked my brother for the loan of a small pocket camera as I was out and about a lot and it seemed like something I could do with my time. My love for photography was instantaneous, a lightening bolt. I couldn’t believe that I had never done THIS before. The camera just felt right in my hands and an immense feeling of joy and contentment came over me when I would stand and shoot. That excited feeling of anticipation when downloading the shots and that high five feeling when you get the image you were after!
Instantly I knew it was what I wanted to do and six weeks later I had enrolled to do a Postgraduate Diploma in Photography with The photography Academy of Ireland. A friend leant me a DSLR camera and it sat untouched for weeks as I didn’t have the confidence to use it but I had to get to grips with it for my first college assignment and I never looked back, quickly upgrading to my incredible Nikon Z6. Fast forward 18 months and I have the confidence to send this website into the world and take on job offers – it has and continues to be a wonderful journey.
I am still a photography student and my rates reflect this – I’m still learning my craft but I have what every photographer must have, regardless of their technical know how or state of the art equipment – an eye for a great shot. I am enthusiastic and hard working and promise to put 100% into any job.
