LIDL Have Beef – you’re going to love it!

LIDL have beef with anyone who doubts they can deliver top notch quality at the brilliant prices they’re famous for. And who better to confront those doubts – and show off their commitment to quality at every stage – than real LIDL staff who deliver that quality every day.

 

Weekend at the beach

I always look forward to Easter. It’s the first chance we get every year to spend some time at the beach. This year, it was absolutely freezing and at times, stormier than Donald Trump’s mistress. Here’s how it looked, over the course of 5 days.

 

St. Patrick’s College, Maynooth

I had a little time to kill yesterday on the campus of NUI Maynooth. It’s also home to St. Patrick’s College – a Pontifical University.

Jesus is OK with the whole crucifixion thing, as long as he has an umbrella. Apparently.

Hello, is there anybody out there?

Wow. That as a foggy one. January 11th 2018. Here’s what my commute home looked like.

Through the looking-glass

I’ve taken plenty of shots of the new incinerator, looking across from Sandymount. Last night (Feb13th 2018), I stopped on the way home to snap them from the other side, looking from Grand Canal Dock. I picked up a few other shots around there too.

Virgin Media January Sale

For January 2018, Virgin Media had a sale with no catches, no hidden costs and no long contracts to sign – it’s the ‘What you see is what you get’ sale.

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.

I’ve also got an instagram account for my general photography @thejamescarr

Waiting in the dark

These cold winter nights are taking chunks out of my day. It’s too icy to take the bike, so the car/traffic alternative has me up earlier and home later. The slight up-side to that is that I’ve some time to kill, waiting for traffic to ease in the evenings before I leave Sandymount.

Portraits

I’m doing portraits for the BBDO Dublin staff page on the website at the moment. Here’s a few I like so far.

The Age of Promiscuity

 

A great, big, sexy through-the-line campaign for Virgin Media’s 30-day no strings contracts across broadband and TV.

High Rock

I was passing through Portmarnock yesterday. The place where I grew up. On the way, I stopped on the coast road to Malahide and took a few photos at High Rock. It was quiet, being morning time, and a working day. During the 20 minutes that I was there, the weather changed from idyllic summer to apocalyptic stormy. Either way, it’s beautiful.

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 rigorous, once a year golf practise regime.

Here’s how myself and my team mates got on this time, Friday June 30th 2017.

And for a more rounded view of the day, here’s the commemorative video I made for the 2015 event.

EBS – The Mortgage Masters

EBS looked at what other banks were doing and asked us to give them something that was not that. Their experience, dedication, focus and expertise makes them really, really good at what they do, and for a job as important as your mortgage, you want the best – the Mortgage Masters.

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.
