About


I have had an interest in photography since my teenage years. I have progressed from the print to the digital age with a style that combines people, nature and the wider landscape with a leaning at all times towards colour and atmosphere. But it’s not all that serious; I always like to keep a place in my work for art and fun.1-Tivoli-on-the-Lee-Cork-Painting-001

I discovered photography when I was about 17. There was always and interest in art in my home and my grandmother was quite a watercolour artist in her day; one of her pieces (shown here) hung on the wall at home and remains there to this day. Some of my siblings had the gift but I never could quite master the whole painting routine. Then one day, I discovered that I could ‘paint’… with a camera. I began to have fun with just a very cheap 110 camera and so I progressed. The thing was, while painting was not my calling, I could compose a picture fairly well and seemed to understand this without ever having to be told. And that as they say, was pretty much that. Now I see photography as MY art; a mixture of maths and colour and that seems to suit me just fine.

I began to work in photography; first in a Processing Lab, developing and printing and then as a photographer doing weddings and parties for neighbours and friends. In more recent times, through my work in fundraising with Irish Guide Dogs for the Blind and Bóthar, my camera was always at hand. Traveling abroad with Bóthar was a real ‘kid in a sweet shop’ experience for me.

Now, running Moy River B&B as well as taking the plunge as a Camera for Hire, I get to follow my art every day… or should that be, follow my heart!
