LIDL: Christmas 2019

Eager to see what Christmas is really like, a Lidl Elf stowaway gets a tour of one family’s festivities – to the delight of everyone but Dad.   Following on from our Big Save campaign, Nick the Elf stocks up on everything he needs for Christmas at LIDL.

LIDL: The Big Save

To demonstrate LIDL’s great, high-quality range and excellent value for money, we enlisted 5 families to show the nation how much they could save by shopping at LIDL. Every week, we catch up with one of our families as they do the weekly shop in their local LIDL, then head home to unpack their groceries…

Unexpected Ballymaloe

Ivona Poljac and Isabel Harvey had a lovely idea for some social posts for Ballymaloe. The budget was tight so they asked me to take some studio shots that were then comped with stock location shots. I think they turned out great.

Firenze

I had the pleasure of spending a week in Florence recently. What an incredible city! It’s hard to believe that people could have made such amazing art so long ago, and that so much of it has survived intact. Every street, and every square has something stunning to admire.

Darkest days

We’re getting close now, to the darkest day of the year. I’ll be happy to be on the other side and heading towards daylight. In the meantime, it’s handy to be able to capture a few nice sunrises at the leisurely time of 8:45am.

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…

Still got it

When I started studying photography in college, my first camera was a Canon AE1 Program. After my first summer working in New York, I bought this little beauty – an A1. I’ve had it ever since and I still love how it looks and how it feels. It’s been years since I put a roll…
