Who is your biggest inspiration as a Landscape photographer?
I really can’t say just the one photographer because I think any photographer gets inspiration from looking at anyone’s photos and I even get inspired by Artist paintings. I would watch you tube to relax and I really love to watch stuff by the likes of Thomas Heaton, Peter McKinnon, Michael Shainblum, Evan Ranft, Mark Denney, Nick Page, Jacob, Charlie Waite and Nigel Danson are just a few. You constantly can learn new tips and tricks and I really think You Tube is as good as anywhere if you are wanting to learn stuff. If you really enjoy something its not like learning it more about evolving and making yourself better. Its just amazing some of these locations to get to see when some of these guys are out especially the Americian guys as its just such a vast Country with so many amazing locations. Although for all the size of Ireland it is one of the most stunning Countries in the planet.
Who is your favourite Irish photographer at the moment?
Again… a very hard question to answer as there is so much amazing raw talent out there in Ireland and I can’t just mention one. I would have to say Steven Hanna though as I have always loved his work from when I was first starting out and just how natural they look and the details he has in the images. I went to one of his workshops as well a couple of years ago and he was such a nice guy and I remember we stayed behind to shoot stuff in Portstewart after the sun had set and everyone else had gone and we got a good chat and some really cool images. I also love the videos that he does as well on You Tube. Another I have to mention would have to be Bernard Geraghty. I have watched Bernard rise to where he’s at now in all that he does with his Tours around the world, funny posts and stories on Instagram / Facebook and if you haven’t checked it out yet, his amazing Podcast. He gets in guests every few weeks and just listening to the stories and banter really is a great time to grab a coffee and learn from the masters in their field. There is so many amazing Irish photographers about though and just too many to name here but ones that come to mind would have to be Explore Light, Ruben Fields, Six miles, Alistair Hamill, Kieran Walsh and loads load’s more… sorry can’t mention everyone. Lol If I follow you on socials you are a good photographer or just a nice person. Lol
