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.

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

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. 30 second TV ad.   5x 20 second VOD ads.   A full suite of HPTO, digital display and social banners.   Some stills from the shoot. An extensive suite of photography which the Virgin Media web…

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…

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…

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.

Comfortably numb

Hello, is there anybody out there? Today on Sandymount strand.

The Virgin Media Night Run

There’s a unique atmosphere about the city at night – a heightened, more focused and intimate experience.

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…

The Dead Zoo

Looking for something to do in Dublin on Saturday, I popped in to the Natural History Museum for a while. It’s a strange little place, but interesting and worth a visit. There are only two levels currently open to the public – such a shame that the upper levels are out of bounds. Lack of…
