Weddings Wildlife & Travel Portraits


I have worked as a professional photographer for the past eleven years, specialising in weddings. I currently live in Athlone, Co. Westmeath but cover weddings nationwide. I am passionate about all aspects of photography. As well as wedding photography I also love Wildlife, Landscape, Sport and Portrait photography. In the past seven years, I have been running photography courses for Beginners and Intermediate photographers in Athlone. Teaching is a great way to share my passion for photography. I am married to my beautiful wife Laura since February 2017 and we have a beautiful daughter Aine and son Seán. I love travelling and I have spent a lot of time in Africa photographing its people and it's wildlife. I have worked with the Brighter Communities Charity(Formerly Friends of Londiani Charity) in Kenya and I have visited and documented their work many times since 2007. I have run an exhibition in the Tuar Ard Gallery showcasing the people and wildlife of East Africa in 2015. The charity uses my photos to showcase the charities work on an ongoing basis. I am a member of the Irish Professional Photographers and Video Association (IPPVA) and The Guild of Photographers. I came 4th in the European FEP Professional Wildlife Photography Awards in 2018. I was the Winner of the "2015 IPPA Best Classic Wedding Portfolio" and "2015 IPPA Best Classic Wedding Single Image" awards. I won a Silver medal with Irish Photographic Federation in 2014. I won the Travel Photographer of The Year Award for 2009 with the SWPP and I have also won several Gold awards with the SWPP.
