You’re very welcome to my collection of photos taken all around my home area of Dun Laoghaire, Dalkey and Killiney in south county Dublin, Ireland. I’m an all-year sea swimmer with my best friend, Ruadh, who features in many photographs. You’ll find us lounging on Whiterock at some point every day.
My background is in engineering & physics, but my passion is photography. I really love just staring at the beauty of Nature around me and trying, in some humble but alas always incomplete way, to capture a slice of the beauty for sharing with my friends.
I’m obsessed by the ethereal nature of light and shade. I see an image in my head and then try to express it as best I can. I’m more inspired by impressions of the landscape than reconnaissance photographs.
For those of you who would like to have a print, quality is paramount. I print using the very best system available with Canon Lucia pigment inks. This is a 12 colour system and, while the inks are extremely expensive, they can last up to 200 years on quality paper when protected by glass or UV perspex. Being a lifelong vegetarian, it also pleases me that these pigments are not tested on animals.
