Rob has been a friend going back about 10 years, maybe more. We worked together for years, but didn’t see each other so much when I changed career. So I was delighted to hear from him last year, and to meet his girl friend, Riona. Turns out he had popped the question and they were …

Rose & Denis, Rosscarbery

It’s a fairly miserable early January day as I write this, but I’m not complaining. I’ve spent the last couple of hours going through the photos from Rose & Denis’s wedding, back on a sunny day in late September. I think September is one of my favourite months for weddings. The autumnal light and the …

The year that was … 2013

It’s almost March 2014, and I’ve only just now taken my first proper look back at the work I made in 2013. It’s very hard to choose a selection to represent a year, so I won’t label any of these as favourites – they’re just some of the photos that I like from the year. …

Garryvoe on a rainy day

Sometimes I get asked by prospective clients, “what’ll we do if it’s raining?”. Now, this is Ireland, so everyone knows what to do when it rains. Find a nice cosy pub! Seriously though, it’s Ireland, and there’s always a chance of rain. The only thing to do is embrace it. Bring along a nicely shaped …
