About

I'm a believer in Christ, and I like to take pictures of people and places in and around my HomeTown—Drogheda, Co.Louth.

There are two contrasting aspects to my photography. My landscapes are created during times spent in quiet and isolated atmospheres, where I reflect. And the portraits are the pursuit of connection, where I enjoy dialogue with others. 

My inspiration to start photography birthed in 2003 while studying in Drogheda Youthreach when my teacher (Artist, Elaine Hoey) gave me a Craigie Horsfield photobook that deeply impacted me.
