The day there were two suns and a mad seagul. I was driving along the coast a few years back and popped the camera out the window quickly and managed to capture this scene. A lone seagull flying towards the heavy storm clouds as the light breaks through and scatters light on the sea below. Magical moment for me. Not sure what the seagull was thinking though as it lashed rain 30 seconds after I took that shot. I guess the moral of the story is live in the moment as the sun won't always shine.


A shot i took at Owenahincha Beach in West Cork. When mother nature decides to unleash one last burst of light to demonstrate her power. After it's gone you can only ask yourself did that really just happen? This moment of pure magic happened as I had just finished up a workshop with a client and we were walking back to the car. Luckily I had my camera in my hands as I was talking about filters and which ones work best. Then I managed to snap that shot before the light vanished as quickly as it arrived. I used a 5 stop @formatthitech nd grad to balance the direct and indirect light. Luckily it all worked out.


Beautiful things happen when working with beautiful people. This is a shot from a shoot with the stunning Nicole. One of the real advantages if my work is meeting people, something I have always loved. From 2 day old's to 96 year olds and over. It's always a real pleasure and everyone is a unique experience. Have a great day my friends.
