Paris Photowalk 2022

28 hours with no sleep and 35k steps later… What an experience..

Met so many creators last night, and of course I am still replaying in my head the fantastic conversations I had with Mike, Liam, Faye and Sam, all their pages on Instagram will be linked below - cannot stress how down to earth these guys are!

I expect fully to attend the next one, and am beyond thrilled at the little community we have now formed to share our work and offer support to each other. Photographers, Filmmakers, all content creators alike - we share a common goal and all have our own individual strengths.

Make sure you check out the pages below unless you want to disrespect your eyes because they bang out some seriously dope stuff practically daily. I will be posting all of the images I keep from last night on both IG and the website tomorrow, tempted to make a special page just to share the groups photos too!

We are still deciding on a hashtag to use to find them all in the future so stay tuned.


As promised, the links to their pages:

Collaboration Piece With Sebastian Thommen!

Delighted to announce that Sebastian from sebastian_thommen_art on Instagram has taken an interest in one of my images, and is producing a beautiful hand-painted print for sale on his website!

Cannot wait to see your work come together in this, and I couldn’t have chosen a nicer image. Sebastian specializes in architectural pieces so this will be very exciting.


I will post more updates on his project here on the Feed and will absolutely be showing off my print when it arrives!


Find Sebastian’s work on his website and Instagram which you can find below:

NorthBorders Paris Meetup 2022

I’ll be traveling to Paris this coming Wednesday for the NorthBorders meetup, going to be trying to catch a few banger photos while I run around shooting the entire thing in 4k but I will return to Paris soon for a purely photo-centric trip. This event is going to be one for the record books - I can feel it.


Pray to the SanDisk gods because for the sake of workflow, I am going to shoot video to one card and stills to another. Throwing my whole backup-crazy dual slot shooting meta out the window. I have confidence in SanDisk. Reason for this is so I can use the two higher write speed 64gb cards for 4k video and the slower, 32gb cards for stills. Two of each anyway though, just to be sure.




If you don’t know who Mike is, he is one of the best car and street photographers that I am currently aware of. Cannot wait to see how many people turn up to this event but to be honest, I think Mike has a lot more European fans than he thinks! Make sure to subscribe to my YouTube to catch the video from the event, but I am sure there will be lots more coverage and possibly a live event too - cannot wait to see this thing in action!


In other news, you can find my latest upload on YouTube live now - Pixel Hunters is a short cinematic video covering a day out shooting with the pals in Cork City. Much more video stuff coming as you can probably tell from the past couple of weeks of content so stay tuned for more :D


See y’all in Paris xox
