Four More Years
I got an email a couple of days ago to inform me that I started this blog four years ago. Four years! This is one of the first photos I posted back then, of my good friend Phil. I’d just bought a couple of flash units and this was my first time experimenting with off-camera flash.
Pretty impatient for spring to show itself these days. Starting to think about growing food again. (For a sort of account of my attempts last year - including these spring onions - visit thedrywell.com.)
My poor father got stuck holding my bridesmaid’s bouquet most of the day so I could use my camera. Sorry, Dad! Here he is, chatting to a neighbour.
I’m not a wedding photographer, but I shot my sister’s wedding this summer. Our aunts did an amazing job on the flowers for the day.
Here’s to longer, warmer days. Can’t wait for summer.
These are some more images from Ealaín Bia, a brilliant culinary and cultural event run by 3 recent graduates of DIT’s Culinary Arts degree in the Craft Village, Donegal Town this summer. A top-class 4-course meal of locally-sourced, ethically-produced food was interspersed with bilingual poetry, original music and even some storytelling from the local seanchaí.
Ireland’s towns could benefit from more events like these.
Maria Somerville performing her first live show in near-darkness at the Ealaín Bia event in Donegal this summer. You can listen to some of her work here. She tells me there’ll be more recordings on the way soon.
Aliquo AW 2013
The season is almost over, & I can finally share with you some of the images I created for my friend’s beautiful jewellery brand, Aliquo.
Our model, Alicia, did a brilliant job, & I’m really happy with some of the images our team produced together that day.

Delighted to see Harlow and Harvey worn by Sharon Corr on The Voice tonight! I’ve worked with Sarah several times and the quality and originality of her work is so impressive. Here’s a few of my favourite images of Harlow and Harvey pieces from past shoots we’ve had together.
