My expertise lies in curating a visual narrative that shows off the ambiance and spirit of any event or moment. With a candid style, each photograph I take paints a story.

Digital media solutions for your business or team can also be accommodated. Whether it's a social media-centric approach,or a stress-free media handling experience for your business and your partners, my team and I can get the ball rolling.

*studio time for shoots requires a booking through me with a local studio in Cork City

I am actively working on expanding to offering video services alongside my usual photography services, and hope to have a showreel/demo reel ready in the next few months. I provide some video services right now, it just isn't advertised currently! Check out my YouTube channel for the time being and check back here soon, or drop me an email to discuss more!

Where am I based?

Based on the outskirts of Cork City, Ireland, I can make travel arrangements to almost any part of the country given  schedule availability.

Special travel requests always considered.
