A few recent shots from evenings in Sandymount.
Some photos, 360 photospheres and videos that I have shot.
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…
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.
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.
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.
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…
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.
No doubt there are more beautiful places on earth, but on days like this, with company like this, I can’t think of any.
