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.
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…
No doubt there are more beautiful places on earth, but on days like this, with company like this, I can’t think of any.
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. For their second year of sponsoring the Virgin Media Night Run, we wanted to evoke this feeling, coupled with the adrenaline rush of participating and competing in one of the most exciting sporting events of the year. The…
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…
