I have been involved in various aspects of photography for over 15 years. I spent 7 years in Chicago as a scenic artist making sets and backdrops for photographers, film and commercial sets. I got my taste for photography while working with professional photographers during these years. I started with 35mm and Medium 120 formats. I got much of my training at a film school in Chicago. This introduced me to monochrome film and I fell in love with shooting in B&W. It is still my preferred format. Since moving to Ireland 8 years ago, I was drawn to the magnificent landscapes and got into digital photography. Most of my work, I would classify as Landscape Portraiture and Fine Art.
I live in Co. Kerry Ireland. I shoot with a Nikon D 50 and Canon 35mm. I have a Nikon bridge L120 for day to day. I prefer a 50mm prime as a lens of choice for most of my work. And I am a fan of Corel PaintShop Pro. I love to photograph on a shoestring DIY budget and keep my kit very basic. Guess that is my inner artist, but really I am just broke.
