A few months back I flew down to The Bahamas from NYC to shoot an ad campaign for a client based down there (more about that shoot in a blog post soon). At night the most amazing clouds would roll in over the Island and give beautiful dramatic twilight skies.
Nice to spot these ads I shot for the GAA lining Dorset Street after the All-Ireland final yesterday! Makes it that bit sweeter that Dublin won..

Skating down Canal Street weaving through rush-hour traffic with two skaters I met in the skatepark just a couple hours before. Trying to keep up with them while holding a Canon 5D to my eye and shooting photos. Building a ramp out of a piece of wood and a parking meter in Soho, and skating it between the traffic and pedestrians. A spontaneous afternoon resulting in some of my favourite photos of the Summer.
I shot with Irish model in NYC, Hannah Carey, on the Staten Island Ferry one sunny afternoon.
I linked up with model and running enthusiast Zoe Schwartz, for a fitness shoot during my time in New York. We shot around Greenpoint and Williamsburg in Brooklyn and used the Manhattan skyline as our backdrop. Zoe is currently training for the NYC Marathon so the shoot tied in perfectly with her training!
I moved to New York on 28th May 2017, below are some of my favourite shots from my first 3 days in NYC.
I've decided to resurrect this blog to keep an updated flow of work and other projects on this website.
The last few months
I've been living in New York since the end of May, I moved here with the plan of shooting a tonne of work for myself for the Summer. I had a few projects in mind that I wanted to shoot when moving over here, some of which are in progress, some I'm yet to begin and others will never see the light of day. Since I've moved to New York, I've travelled to the Bahamas to shoot an ad campaign for ALIV with Dublin based agency In The Company of Huskies, visited Sinead in LA which resulted in shooting two personal projects and a video, and I've been skating a lot in LES.
I'll be posting photos and videos from the last 2 months on here over the next few weeks until the blog is up to date with all the good stuff since I moved to NY. In the meantime checkout my Instagram to see what I've been shooting and doing.
Shot with model Alannah Beirne out around Blessington Lakes on a beautiful sunny Friday morning!
Behind the scenes of a running shoot with model Alannah Beirne, for my training series. Shot on location in Blessington on an incredible day.
In December 2016, I put together a 16 page A5 booklet of personal and non-commissioned work from the last quarter of the year titled 'TEST'. I sent copies to creative directors/art directors/agencies/studios in Ireland whose work I admire. I designed the booklet myself, and it was printed by the good people at Plusprint in Dublin. If you wish to pick up a copy you can do so here on my BigCartel.
A new skatepark was recently built out in Ballyogan, we headed out for a skate where the local kids allowed us to skate 'their' park. They were hyped on skateboarding though and kept asking for shots of our boards, and of course wanted their photos taken once I took the camera out.
Short drive through the mountains on a cold, sunny afternoon.
