Clonmacnoise Castle

When I first saw Clonmacnoise Castle I knew that I had to photograph it. I really like how it looks as if it is just at the point of toppling down the mound that it sits upon. Because of the motorway it’s only an hour from my house, which is handy. But what I’ve found […]

Far, Far Away…

I started doing this whole landscape photography thing properly when I moved to Galway, which next month will be 4 years ago. In that time I’ve been photographing locations within a certain radius of my house. The radius being the length of time it takes to drive there, and ergo the time I have to get out […]

If at first you don’t succeed…

I had attempted to capture Doolough once before and hadn’t been successful. I made a recce of the location in the summer of 2015 and having worked out the direction of the sunrise decided that it needed to be dawn when I returned. It was January of 2016 when I returned only to find that the sun rose in […]

Pembrokeshire (Sir Fro)

December is the busiest time of year where I work meaning I hadn’t had the chance to get out and about with my camera, so I was looking forward to getting some new images while I was in Wales for Christmas. I had a few places marked on my map from previous recces and a few that […]

The One That Got Away

When I frame one of my images – many months after taking it – and stand back to admire my work, I think about what I went through to get the shot. How I got out of a warm bed far too early, drove for 2 hours in the dark on increasingly treacherous roads, then stood […]

Church Door

I have a hard drive that I back up my photographs on to. There is stuff on there that dates back to 2003. I didn’t go digital until 2005 so they’re digital scans of negatives. Below is one of those scans, and I rather like it. It’s one that I would like to recreate but I haven’t […]

Saint Macdara’s Island

Saint Macdara lived on an island off the South West coast of Connemara in the 6th century, where stood a wooden church. At some point the wooden structure was replaced by a stone church which remains one of the best preserved examples of early Christian buildings. The island is only about a kilometer long and apart from […]

Resolution

I have to upload images to this website in a low resolution. Because the lower the resolution, the smaller the file, the quicker the website runs. The consequence is that the images don’t look their best. A lot of the time they don’t look too bad shrunk down and, as is the nature of the internet, […]

Process

At times I’ve been asked how I process my images and I’ve not know what to say. If the person asking isn’t a photographer themselves how do you straddle the line between being too simplistic and too esoteric? I’m going to break down the process I go through to attempt to give an idea of what’s involved. I’ve […]

Turlough Round Tower

I once worked as a butcher and during that time a stranger never told me what meat to cut. When I was a stock room manger strangers never told me where to put the stock, similarly no one suggested my route when I was a driver. However, when strangers encounter me in my role as […]
