Solstice

Some shots taken on the winter solstice 2018, Ratoath, Co. Meath. Exposure-merged HDR images, processed in split-tone.

Morning phase

We're getting some spectacular sunrises at the moment. Here are a few shots I've taken on Sandymount beach this week. Each day, I arrive just in time to get a few snaps - I really need to get up a few minutes earlier and have a bit of time to do this properly - but … Continue reading Morning phase

Hello, is there anybody out there?

Wow. That as a foggy one. January 11th 2018. Here's what my commute home looked like. https://youtu.be/4jI6fWWRsr8

Beam me up

I like bikes and I like photography. Luckily, you can do both together. Here's a timelapse of my commute on Feb 5th 2018, shot with a GoPro Hero 5. For more of my biker shots and videos, take a look at @thejamesbike on instagram I've also got an instagram account for my general photography @thejamescarr

Golf, if you can call it that.

The Angeline Meehan Golf Classic has been an Irish International tradition since before I joined the company. It's a bit of craic. A company day out on the golf course, or alternatively, a walk around Howth head, followed by drinks and dinner, and more drinks. The day out is a very important part of my … Continue reading Golf, if you can call it that.

Happy Days

No doubt there are more beautiful places on earth, but on days like this, with company like this, I can't think of any.

Dublin goes green

Paddy's Day eve. I stopped off at the Convention centre to capture a bit of green white and orange. I thought my bike was looking pretty fetching too, so I took a few snaps of that while I was there.

Bord Gáis Energy Theatre

On the second night of a night shoot last week, I took this at about 12.30am in Grand Canal Square, in front of the Bord Gáis Energy Theatre in Dublin, Ireland. It's a bit noisy, because the GoPro currently won't expose longer than 1/4sec when shooting RAW. Kinda frustrating since it can stay open for … Continue reading Bord Gáis Energy Theatre

Dublin Castle

Dublin Castle off Dame Street, Dublin, Ireland, was until 1922 the seat of the UK government's administration in Ireland, and is now a major Irish government complex. Most of it dates from the 18th century, though a castle has stood on the site since the days of King John, the first Lord of Ireland. The … Continue reading Dublin Castle

St. Teresa’s Church of the Discalced Carmelites

Tucked away behind Grafton Street in the centre of Dublin, this is just one of several beautiful alcoves within the church.

Minus one, plus one

There are some things we do well in Meath, and fog is one of them. I was out for a few hours earlier, and it was bloody cold. Got home, lit the fire and made a big dinner of steak and roasties and I was about to sit down and get cozy when I looked out … Continue reading Minus one, plus one

Slackers

I happened upon these guys in Merrion Square on Saturday. As far as I know (which isn't very far), Slackline walking is even harder than Tightrope walking, which itself, is very hard indeed. These guys were very good at not falling off their lines and they had a lot of fun, floating above Merrion Square … Continue reading Slackers

Costa deLouth

Some shots taken while on holidays in Port Oriel, August 2016. It's incredible how quickly the weather pivots - it now feels like a proper autumn, and these balmy evenings are long gone.

Seen unseen

Here's a couple of short timelapse videos I shot today. Just tests really. I was experimenting with long exposure shots using neutral density filters to cut down the light. In this first one outside the office, I shot a sequence of 6 second exposures at 8 second intervals. Watch it in 4K full resolution. After … Continue reading Seen unseen

East of Eden

Can't complain about the weather. Really. It's been pretty rainy these past few days, but it's warm rain, so that's not so bad. We have had some gorgeous days and nights this summer so far. Here's a few shots I took a few weeks back (may 26th). In the summer, you have to be working pretty … Continue reading East of Eden
