This has truly been a dream come true for me and yet something I have worked incredibly hard at the same time for nearly 10 years now. Wow 10 years… where did that time go, it seems like only yesterday that I bought a second hand DSLR camera from a person at a petrol station, little did I know within 12 months I would be the in house photographer for a nationwide fashion brand and doing 30 plus fashion shoots a year for several different fashion outlets.

The positive in all this is… that as well as sharing educational content with you I can now save you money also from a good few of the above brands as I have a host of Discount codes and special offers for some of the very best editing software and camera accessory companies out there.

West Cork Photography.

West Cork is a place of pure magic and joy, every road you travel down in West Cork turns into something special, with its every changing scenery and weather conditions and best of all it’s not riddles with hoards of tourists constantly popping into your photographs. That has to be my favourite part 🙂

West Cork photography for me is all about trying to capture the ever changing mood and beauty of this stunning part of the world, no matter what the weather Irish photographers know there is always a photograph to be had here.

West Cork has some of the best places Photography locations in Ireland and living in Clonakilty at the real gateway to West Cork I am incredibly lucky to have all these stunning spots on my doorstep.

Yes, the ever changing weather can be a pain and while it can also be a pleasure, there has been many an hour sitting on a beach waiting for a stunning sunset only for the clouds to roll in at the last moment and kill it all off.

Now in saying that there is still no better place to be sitting than on a beach (Clonakilty is surrounded by them), but you still want to get the shot… So you have to learn to adapt especially if you want to make a profession of taking landscape photographs in Ireland 🙂

So you need to look for the shot and yes there is always one there you just need to see it.

You can check out my Irish Photography Gallery here, I am still working on this so please do check back again soon.
