What was your path to becoming a Landscape Photographer & What was your first camera?
What was your favourite Landscape Adventure Story since becoming a Photographer?
What was your worst in-the-field experience as a landscape Photographer?
Worst experience out shooting has to be my infamous slip down in Glendalough ha ha. Im sure many have already heard this story. Myself and Niall O Connell decided to meet up down at Glendalough for sunrise one Saturday morning. I got there around 6am. Niall was there before me as per usual ha ha. We made our way up as far as the upper lake. The lake was like a mirror and there was a slight bit of fog hoovering over it. We took a couple of nice shots from the shore. After that we decided to head on up to Poulanass Waterfall which was only a few minutes away.

Where is your favourite Location in Ireland to Photograph & Why?
What is your favourite photograph, that you’ve taken to date, & Why?
My favourite photo to date is a tough one. I have 2 or 3 I really like and am happy with it. Probably a sunrise shot I took at Wicklow head Lighthouse. It was taken this summer. I met up with two lads I sometimes shoot with, Paul and Colin and actually bumped into another photographer that i knew from Instagram, Derek it was around 5am and the weather apps had promised an amazing rise. We weren’t disappointed. Sky was all sorts of pinks and yellow and I took a 6 minute long exposure which came out really well I thought. It is prob my favourite image to date.
