I spent the last year in Vancouver, Canada, working as both a Swim Coach and a Strength & Conditioning Coach. We had great plans to travel the whole west coast of Canada and the USA but some Covid stuff happened and we ended up coming home last August. It was great to get the chance to see so many of the wonderful landscapes Canada has to offer before we came home. Driving up and down the Icefields Parkway will always be on the best experiences in my life. It would have been great to stay, but it would have been impossible to travel and see what we wanted to see before the visas were up. We will be going back at some stage.
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?
Sunrise or Sunset & Why?
Where is your favourite Location in Ireland to Photograph & Why?
What is your favourite photograph, that you’ve taken to date, & Why?
This is harder for me to answer than say someone like TJ Allen, who probably has fewer good photos.
What equipment / Setup are you currently using?
With the A7Riii I have the two budget Tamron lenses 17-28mm and 28-75mm. I’ve got the 70-200mm f4 from Sony, and also the 200-600mm because I love shooting wildlife.
