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 wereDetails
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!Details
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. There are a number of different styles to choose from and no style is better or worse than any other – it really depends on you and what style you prefer.Details
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.

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.

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.Details
My nephew is working on filling out his CAO form this week. It’s hard to believe that it’s 15 years since I was flicking through college prospectuses (prospecti?) trying to narrow down my choice. I liked art, but I wasn’t very good at it. There were people in my art class that were incredibly talented – without even thinking about it they could sketch portraits that were amazing.

I decided toDetails
