About me

I am a professional photographer and designer based in Belfast, Northern Ireland. I have had 10+ years working in studios and as a freelancer. My passion in life is creativity and finesse, which I bring to every job, whether it's a late night commercial shoot, or a full-day wedding.

Photography is an art.

It’s about finding extra-ordinary

In an ordinary place.

Photography started out as a hobby, but it quickly evolved into something I could do as an add-on to my career.

It started on Instagram where I now have more than 4,000 followers (no buying followers or bots involved – completely organic). Along the way, I have won a couple of competitions and even hung in a few galleries. I came joint 6th in the Wex ‘Photographer of the Year 2016’, which included a gallery in Shoreditch in London.

Since this is my website – I will show you some of the stuff that I take for fun, that has brought me to this point in my photographic career.

This shot above won first place on Wex’s weekly Photographer of the year competition on Twitter. That year, I came joint 6th overall and was displayed in a gallery in Shoreditch, London for a few weeks and had flown over for the opening show. It also was the cover of Culture NI’s programme and I had an interview with them about how I got started in the design/photography world.

Being a graphic designer, I’m naturally obsessed with print. When I create, in the back of my mind, I am always thinking about how an image I take will look on paper. Over the years I have upgraded my printers so I can create beautiful prints of my work. I now use an A3+ Canon printer, together with premium fine art platinum etching paper display and sell my work. It really is the best feeling when someone purchases a print. I’ve made over 140 sales on my Etsy shop. If you’re interested, use the discount code of IHAVESEENTHISCODE for 10% off.

Vlogging is something that is new to me. I created my first video on YouTube in February 2020 shooting the photo used as the main image above which I used a drone fitted with lights to create the image. Since that first behind the scenes video, I’ve made a few more and even shot my first client video. Video is great fun, especially now I can show how much effort goes into each photography I make.

Currently, I am using my Fuji XT2 and 10-24 f4 lens with a Rode Videomic Go as my blogging rig and using the Nikon D750 with a 35 or 85mm f.14 for the B-Roll.

Let's talk

I love nothing more than a creative challenge.
We might have a lot more in common than you think.
