As much as I love editing photographs, it’s great to get a break from the computer and go get some fresh air. Dromoland is just a short drive from my house and its meandering paths through the woods and golf course make it a great place to go to take some time out and recharge my batteries. I brought my camera along with me recently to photograph the bluebells that had sprung up throughout the woods. Here are a handful of my favourites – I hope you like them!
Tracy is a friend of mine for a number of years so I was delighted to photograph her wedding to Andrew. They are a really fun couple and they had me laughing for the day! Here are a few of my favourite photographs.
Last night was the highly anticipated Challenge night in the Limerick Camera Club. Whereas most competition nights have an open theme, on challenge night every member must photograph their interpretation of the challenge subjects. I enjoy coming up with concepts and then figuring out how to make them a reality so I love the challenge night. This year the three challenge subjects were
After a busy February, March got off to a great start when I received another Gold award from the Society of Wedding & Portrait Photography for the above image. Nice! So far this year there were only 4 Gold awards given to Irish photographers and I’ve gotten two of them! Sweet!
When it comes to choosing your wedding photographer there are a lot of variables. One of the most important factors to consider is the photographic style of your wedding photographer.

Since I moved to Clare a few years back I still haven’t visited many of the places that local people might have grown tired of. In fact, there are many places that I am not even aware of yet. Mullaghmore was one such place. Sure, I’d seen the mountain as a backdrop in photographs but I knew nothing about it. Last weekend I decided to go climb it.
They say that you should never work with children or animals but how could I resist photographing Baby Gavin for his Thank You cards?! He was good enough to make some time in his sleeping schedule for me and he was as good as gold for the entire time – he even
I thought it would be fun to do a little review of what I’ve been up to every month. These little updates will touch on what I’ve been doing from a photography and business perspective but they will also contain what I’ve been up to outside of all that.
First up, at the beginning of the month I was delighted to receive a Gold award in the Travel category from the Society of Wedding & Portrait Photographers for a photograph I took while in New York. Sweet! Gold awards are difficult to achieve, last year I only managed this for a single image so it’s a great start to the year!

The cross above marks the summit of Carrauntoohil, Ireland’s highest mountain. On Saturday morning a gang of us set off from Cronin’s Yard at the base of the mountain with this cross as our destination. Our spirits were high and so were the clouds surrounding the mountains! Undeterred we ventured on making our way up through Hags Glen.
