Bio & Career

‘I’m an Irish editorial photographer, filmmaker and visual artist. Equally happy on location and in the studio, I enjoy connecting with all kinds of people from all sorts of backgrounds; whether it be working on a commission, an experimental film or shooting a story in a distant country. I also work as a writer and film director, and bring these narrative skills to bear when telling stories through stills, motion, the written word or a combination of all three.’2
