To capture people and landscapes and the interactions between them in the light of a world in transition is to encapsulate an inimitable moment, which will never again materialise. My own 'take' as a geographer photographer! Born in the City of Derry but I have lived most of my life outside the bounds of Ireland in England, Singapore, Togo, Italy, Ethiopia and Brazil. Recently I returned to Ireland (Donegal). My photography, together with travel, have become two of my life’s passions. I studied Geography at University and taught it in international schools. My photography focuses on culture, landscapes and wildlife; images which reflect a spatial and temporal journey through life and which try to convey a need to live in a more sustainable world. I seek the moment and the light in whatever context I find myself and endeavour to use my photographic acumen to turn the ordinary into the extraordinary. I have published images in magazines, calendars and cards, and I presented to The Royal Geographical Society in December 2011 and to tertiary institutions in Ireland in 2013. Images have been used in the tourist industry, online travel writing and for educational purposes in the form of presentations for the International Baccalaureate. I have also exhibited in Ethiopia, Switzerland and Ireland. I reached the final of Travel Photographer of the year in 2010, 2011,2013 and 2015 and was also a finalist in the 'Wanderlust Magazine' Travel Photographer of the year in 2013 in the portfolio category. The images were exhibited at the 'Times' Travel and Destinations show at Earlscourt in London in February 2014. My images of Ethiopia have been used online by the Italian newspaper ‘La Republica’ and also published online by National Geographic, 1x.com and Africa Geographic. I was a finalist (runner up) in the ‘Africa Geographic photographer of the year’ and winner of the ‘People and Culture’ category 2015. I have been published in the Africa Geographic yearbook, The Exposure Awards and one image ‘The Old Priest’ was showcased in a 2-week exhibition in London in association with Photocrowd, Alamy and THEPRINTSPACE in September 2016. An image of the Suri tribe in Ethiopia was also published in the ‘Survival - calendar in 2016 and subsequently published the Guardian and Telegraph newspapers in the UK. In 2015 I had images was published in Digital FOTO (a Danish publication), Digital Camera and N-Photo (Nikon). I aspire to have a vision for tomorrow - An Alternative Vision. I believe that photography can capture those inimitable moments and empower us to make a positive change in our world.
