I am a Commercial Photographer, based in Dublin, Ireland. I have been photographing Fine Art and Design, Interiors/Exteriors and Food for over 30 years.
I have worked for all of the major fine art institutions in Ireland, as well as commercial galleries, public bodies, individual artists, commercial organisations, hotels, and magazines. A selection of my clients may be viewed here
One of my specialities is fine art documentation for museums, galleries (both public and private), publishing houses, as well as individual artists. My work in this area has been reproduced in dozens of publications, a small selection of which are listed on the Publications page.
I have also documented almost the entire collections of both the Arts Council and the Irish Museum of Modern Art, in addition to executing much of the new photography in the Yale series on the Art and Architecture of Ireland published in 2014.
I work with DSLR & Medium-Format cameras, as well as video.
Both my professional and creative photographic practice is underpinned by a long-standing academic interest in art history and theory. In 1991 I graduated from the School of Art History in University College, Dublin with an M.A. Qualifier (First Class Honours). In 2015, I was awarded a First Class Honours M.A. by the National College of Art & Design, Dublin, in their Master's program Art in the Contemporary World for which I created the exhibition Stations of Indifference
I am currently studying for an MFA (Fine Art) at Goldsmiths College, London.
