"I only went out for a walk, and finally concluded to stay out till sundown, for going out, i found, was really going in." (John Muir)
I'm a part time landscape photographer from and living in county Clare. I grew up on a farm near Corofin village and am currently living nearby. At an early age I developed a passion for photography and for the beauty of nature and the Irish countryside. I travel a lot throughout Ireland photographing and researching the history of Ireland's countless beautiful ruined churches, castles and monuments. I also spend a lot of time hill walking and taking landscape photos. My favorite place in Ireland is the Macgillycuddy Reeks mountain range in county Kerry. With their rugged beauty, splendid views and peacefulness I can often empathize with Norman Maclean's great line from A River Runs Through It "When I am alone in the half light of the canyon all existence seems to fade to a being with my soul, and memories and the sounds of the Big Black Foot River"
In my work I endeavor to portray the Irish landscape and its national treasures in all their beauty and magnificence. I thank you sincerely for visiting my website and hope you enjoy looking at my photos
