What was your path to becoming a Landscape Photographer & What was your first camera?
On honeymoon, in South Africa I fell in love with the golden light at sunrise and sunset. I was training myself to look for compositions and different lighting. I am self taught and like many others YouTube was becoming the cheapest education. Social Media opened up another avenue. There were photographers to follow and learn from. Groups to join.

Who is your favourite Irish photographer at the moment?
Ireland has a wealth of talent when it comes to photography. In all genres. How lucky we are to have an abundance of gifted individuals. It makes it very difficult to single out one. I am massive fan of Seán O’Riordan’s work. I just love his use of light and colour and he still maintains the most natural look to his images. That’s a balancing act that Seán has perfected.
There are many others I admire too but to highlight one in particular it has to be a local lady. And that’s Eimhear Collins. Not only do I admire her attitude and her positivity, despite having had health set-backs most of her life, her photography speaks for itself. I once heard someone say she is Ireland’s answer to Rachel Talibart – she is and more. Eimhear’s seascapes in particular for me are gold. The tones, the textures, the colours and that light that she always captures. She has been a big influence on my work and someone to look up to.
