A Little Bit About Me

I have always enjoyed photography, but only took a more serious approach to it 6 years ago after I purchased a Canon 5D. Without the automatic setting I was lost. I then joined Ennis Camera Club and with the help of some of the more senior member I was thought how to use the camera in Full manual mode. Since then I haven’t looked back.

After obtaining my Licentiachip from the Irish Photographic Federation, (LIPF) in November 2011, I decided to try something new. So in April 2012 I decided that I was going to try for my Associateship (AIPF) and turned my sights on Portraiture.

In May 2013 I was awarded my Associateship from the Irish Photographic Federation (AIPF), in June 2014 I was awarded my Licentiateship with the SWPP (LSWPP), in May 2017 I was awarded my Associateship with the SWPP. I have now set my sights on the Fellowship with the Irish Photographic Federation (FIPF) and my.  It going to be a challenge to bring my photography up to the next level, but what is life without challenge.

As a bi product of my journey into Portraiture I have been privileged to meet and work with loads of very talented artists and now feel privileged to call them friends, and am always looking to make new friends.

THE BEGINNING

I started taking image casually, mostly landscapes. When I learned how to shoot manually everything changed for me and my journey into photogrpahy.
