It all starts with your imagination. It doesn’t matter what you are looking at, the question is what can you see?
What is your favourite image?
Currently, my favourite is Mary July 2016.
What is your long-term photographic goal?
To continue to grow my commercial photography business. To bring my black and white photography to a level where I am displaying it in galleries, writing about it and passing on my knowledge to others in my workshops and classes.
How long have you been shooting?
I have been shooting seriously since about 2008.
What photographic kit do you use?
I shoot using a Nikon D800. Lenses include a Nikon 24-70mm F2.8 – my favourite, a Tokina 11-16mm F2.8, a Nikon 50mm F1.8 and a Nikon 70-200mm F4.
I use a 055 XPRO B Manfrotto tripod and Manfrotto MH054M0-Q2 head as well as a number of filters including Lee ND grads, a Lee 10 Stopper and a Lee 6 Stopper.
What would be your dream kit?
I’m happy with my current setup. Going forward, I’d like to start shooting more film as well, preferably with a Hasselblad square format film camera. I have an old Nikon FE but really need to get out with it more. 🙂
I took up photography a few years ago and shot everything in sight. In time, landscape capture, especially black and white became a firm favourite. I also love to shoot people.
Since entered the commercial market I have been enjoying shooting portraits, architecture, event and product photography. I have found this very enjoyable and hope to do more of it.
I hold regular group landscape workshops as well as one to one landscape workshops throughout the west of Ireland.
