Some shots taken on the winter solstice 2018, Ratoath, Co. Meath. Exposure-merged HDR images, processed in split-tone.
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 … Continue reading Still got it
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.
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? Today on Sandymount strand.
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
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.
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
Passing through Trinity college last night around 6.30pm, I got a few nice shots. There's a fair bit of light in the sky over the city and the longish exposures give a nice smudgy effect to the clouds as well as helping to make passing people invisible.
The forecast has been promising snow this week, but it hasn't yet materialised in my part of the world. I've left the bike in the garage and taken the bus and dart to work instead. Each morning I get up, look out the window and see that it'd probably be fine on the bike, but … Continue reading Early bus
At this year’s Expo world fair in Milan the theme was “feeding the planet, energy for life”. Ireland’s Pavilion celebrated Origin Green, Ireland’s world-leading sustainable food movement. We helped create all kinds of interesting material, including this simple, cost-effective and unputdownable Google Cardboard piece, which transported thousands of users from the parched earth of Milan … Continue reading Origin Green – Cardboard : Bord Bia
We get a lot of fog and heavy mist out in Meath. Sometimes you can't see 10 feet in front of you. And it can seem like the whole country is in the soup, but then you drive out of it on the approach to the M50 and it's all clear. Here's a few shots … Continue reading Autumn has landed
I was heading home from my folks place in Portmarnock on thursday evening. Stopped off at a spot known locally as 'High Rock', on the coast road to Malahide and took a few shots on the way. Gorgeous evening!
I love living in Meath, with the countryside all around me. Yes. There are considerable advantages to living close to work, but none that outweigh the opportunity to walk five minutes from home and be completely alone with miles of empty fields to wander. I think the dogs would agree. Here's a few shots from … Continue reading The white, white grass of home
Last tuesday evening, I was sitting in the kitchen at about 9.15pm when I noticed that the garden was pink. Moving closer to the window, I could see the incredible sky that was casting the warm tones. I thought to myself what a shame it was I hadn't gone out with my camera earlier. Then … Continue reading Elusive sunset
