In three words I would describe myself as a curious creative explorer.
I have recently returned to Dublin with a new found appreciation for Ireland. I have travelled quite a bit all my life and it is a big part of who I am. My passion for photography goes hand in hand with my passion for travel and for meeting new people. People are central to most of my photography whether I am engaging with locals on a travel assignment, directing models for a fashion editorial or working with you behind the scenes photographing your interior design or architecture project. I am a Getty Images Contributor and published quite regularly in various magazines and newspapers.
Brand development is another passion and active part of my life. I work with a small number of companies helping to build their brand and position themselves strategically in their marketplace. These include Rudolf Heltzel Fine Art Jeweller, Rionore+Co. Jewellery, The Stags Balls, Suzie McAdam Interior Design and Superkül Architects. Over the past thirteen years I have worked for companies and brands such as Intel, BlackBerry, McCain Foods, the G8 Summit, Ogilvy, Hitachi, and G Adventures to name a few.
I feel I bring a unique perspective to every project I am a part of, having worked with a diverse range of brands, people and companies from all over the world.
Never Stop Exploring
Travel Photography - For travel assignments I can take a brief and interpret it or realise my own story providing writing to go along with the images or collaborate with a copywriter. I have travelled far and wide with my camera and stop at nothing to get unique and interesting images of the area, culture and local people.
Fashion Photography - I work with designers, stylists or boutique owners to create a unique set of images to promote their collection or for a magazine editorial. I typically handle all aspects of the photoshoot from concept generation to sourcing models, hair, make up and scouting locations. I equally enjoy collaboration and can work with you to realise your vision and aim to enhance and add value to this vision.
Architecture and Interiors Photography - While working for a successful boutique architecture firm in Toronto I became very interested in photographing architecture and interiors. I am currently working with many Dublin interior designers and architects and regularly published in interior magazines and newspapers.
Commercial Projects - While most of what I do has a certain commercial quality to it if you need a very polished result suitable for promotion and advertising I can tailor the photoshoot to get the best outcome for the end use. The planning, set up and post production for a commercial photoshoot generally requires a more in depth approach.
Art Direction - Having thirteen years experience in branding, design and art direction I understand the role of photography in campaigns, brochures and advertising. The earlier and more involved I am in the process the better the results tend to be.
I include post production on all final selects and your images are ready for print or for web depending on your needs. Should you need advice on your brand or campaign to combine with your photos please enquire as this is a service I can provide.
I am interested in photography assignments in Dublin, around Ireland and abroad. My focus is predominantly in fashion, travel, architecture and interiors. I also shoot commercial projects. If you like what you see in my portfolio please get in touch and I would be happy to discuss your specific needs and what I can bring to your project.
