My commercial career started in the offshore industry in Holland (with Mobil Oil, Elf Aquitaine, Siemens and others), but on moving to Ireland I shifted my focus to garden and architectural photography. My clients include:
· Jimi Blake, Huntingbrook Gardens
· Kristin Jameson, Tourin House and Gardens
· OPW – National Botanic Gardens: Kilmacurragh and JFK Arboretum
· Blarney Castle & Gardens
· Knockrose Garden
· Flower Your Place
· Merrion Contracting
· O’Toole Architects
As well as commercial photography I carry out my artistic practice with the Grid Collective, with whom I’ve exhibited in various locations in Ireland.
I provide workshops and talks where I share my experience and knowledge; I explain basic concepts but also how to visualise and compose images. I emphasise that developing and practising good routines enables the photographer to concentrate on their creativity. I have given workshops in Tourin House and Gardens, June Blake’s garden, Hunting Brook, Knockrose Garden, Mount Usher and the National Botanic Gardens.
