BIOGRAPHY

I have been a photographer for approx 28 years when I joined a local newspaper as its only staff photographer. this proved to be a great training ground and is probably one of the reasons why I feel at ease shooting a in wide range of genres. Today I mainly photograph Weddings, Portraits and Travel . I was awarded a Fellowship from the Irish Professional Photographers Association and the Master Photographers Association (U.K.) and more recently I received the Q.E.P. Award from the Federation of European Photographers. To me being a photographer is more than a way of making a living it's a way of life

COMMENT

Ever since I bought my first digital camera in 2003 ( Canon D60 ) I missed the traditional layout of my old Nikons and Pentax 67's. So when Fujifilm announced its X-Pro1 I wanted one!!, Having sold my Canon 5Dmk1&2's and a collection of Canon L primes I now use two X-Pro1's and an X-T1 c/w 18, 35 and 56mm lenses. My main business is Wedding Photography and the Fujifilm system fitted the way I work perfectly, I also shoot a lot in Italy and can now travel with confidence knowing I have the Cameras that will more than deliver the quality I need in such a small portable package. My very first SLR was a Fujifilm STX2 over 29 years ago so I have come full circle and it's great to be back.
