BIOGRAPHY

I am a landscape photographer based in the West of Ireland where I lead groups in landscape Photography and teach individuals on a one to one basis. I post a new image on my Facebook page everyday.

Before I started using digital cameras in 2005, I was a film photographer and one of my favourite cameras was a Fuji GW670III. In all the film cameras I ever owned Fuji Velvia was my favourite film, and so when I switched to digital I missed Fuji .

I first used a Fuji digital camera on 9th October 2012. I remember the date so well because a Fuji rep here in Ireland gave me an X-Pro1 to use for a day. I struggled to get the hang of it in the short time I had it, but the images I got were amazing. I decided there and then I needed to get a Fuji. It was two years later before I got an X-E1, I loved the camera and used it as a second camera alongside my full frame Nikon gear, but more and more I found I was leaving the Nikon bag and lenses at home and just taking the little Fuji. I had always thought I needed full frame, but I was getting great images from the X-E1 and so I eventually made the switch completely and now use only Fuji gear with the X-T2 being my main camera. Maybe its an age thing, but using the X-T2 is just like using a film camera from years ago, and so now I find, I think less and less about the camera, and just enjoy taking pictures.
