i feel you all around me.

Social media influencers and your photography/art. If no one saw your photography, how would that change you as a photographer? Every day we see photographers and creative types…

sorrow

Everyone has a secret sorrow that the world doesn’t know about and sometimes we call that person cold when all they are, is sad.

you

Even if a million pictures of you exist. A million pictures that record the history of you and all you do. There is none other like the one…

garden memories

Wildflowers from the garden, photographed and layered in Photoshop. Imperfections abound, but nature celebrates them. Let’s be more like nature. As we begin to hopefully, exit from Covid…

venus rising

As we “hopefully” begin to exit the Covid19 pandemic, will we now be more mindful of what we take from Mother Earth or will we return to our…

where were you the day everything changed?

It was back in March 2020 that news started to filter through about Covid19. Little did we know then what the next 12-18 months would unfold like. So…

the mall – castlebar

A photo from an ongoing project where I shoot scenes from a moving car. No, I am not driving the car at the time. Throw in a longish…

the burning bush

I went to the coast to shoot the mountain. There was a bush with yellow flowers at the edge of the sea. The sun was setting behind it…

footsteps departing

the sun comes to everyone

It’s April and here in Ireland, autumnal colours are never that far away. On some evenings, like this evening, when the sun shines a certain way, and the…

the will of wild birds

I like the birds – when things get shit, they can just fly away.

inbetween days

Photography is a funny game. You learn the rules, the settings and the techniques, then go out, point the camera and take the photo and get the shot…

looking back

Up to recently, my ICM work followed a tried and tested path. The result was usually a painterly style that retained some resemblance to what I was actually…

la mamma morte

In the end, all we will have will be our memories … and eventually they too will fade.

we are silent

We all live in our own space and time. Occasionally, we meet and thats when great things can happen.

the distant hours

Art belongs to us all. It does not belong to the experts, the organisations or the artists.  We all make the art. It is not what you were taught,…

meeting at the river

Being a commercial photographer requires you to shoot well exposed, sharp images – this is an accepted industry norm. Some photoshoots may allow for a little personal interpretation…

in the red morning

I shot Joanne about ten years ago. We had a loose idea of what we wanted and were experimenting with posing and lighting – we possibly failed. Fast…

rappaccini’s daughter II

These “Limited Edition” images are blended from different photos, textures and paintings using a variety of techniques including intentional camera movement, layers, layers masks and blend modes. I…
