About me

 

For those of you who know me, you will know that I fairly easy going and relaxed.   I like what I do, and my ambition is to do what I like, in the best possible sense.   I started my days working with Deegan Photo in Lesson Street, Dublin 2, developing B&W and Colour Photos. We used to develop and print by hand for professional photographers based around the Merrion Square area of Dublin. We were also Architectural and Commercial Photographers.   At that time I was a student member of the Irish Professional Photographers Association. 


Today I am with the SWPP and the Event Photographers Society as they are closer to what I do now, and I am trying to avoid yet another subscription payment.  Like many in the 80?s I moved to London and I was also interested in Arts and Performing. I played in Bands in London and Germany. As a Band we had a two album publishing deal in Hamburg. I went to College in London and Studied Town Planning to Post Grad Level. I still had an interest in Architectural Photography. 



On returning to Ireland, I worked in Training and Development for 13 Years and Specialised in Training Content Development, which means, making training Manuals and Videos. 

One of my last jobs was working in LA California making 120 Training Videos about how to run a large Internet based Warehouse.I worked with Hibernia College at their Westport Office for a year, the online Teacher Training People, working on the development of their online Training courses. Photography and in Particular video was an important component of that job.During this time I kept close to People Photography, it??™s technical development and emerging techniques.




Here is a list of General Education and the Photographic Training Courses that I have completed in the last Three Years.

I used to be involved in music performance and writing. Here is a video of us on the National Song Contest 2000. We were the last Irish Language song to be included in the National Song Contest, so I am not sure how to take that!!!! I also like Sean Nós Dancing, Social Dancing, Playing Music and working with community groups.
