MY PHOTOGRAPHY JOURNEY
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.

“When words become unclear, I shall focus with photographs. When images become inadequate, I shall be content with silence.”
“There is only you and your camera. The limitations in your photography are in yourself, for what we see is what we are.”
“Black and white are the colors of photography. They symbolize the alternatives of hope and despair to which mankind is subjected.”
