May 2015

Speedy Press
2015-05-20

International Literary Festival Dublin is hitting Dublin pretty hard this May with a broad swathe of events peppered across the nooks and crannies in town. Monkeyshine Theatre bring the Paper Princess play to the Ark in Temple Bar, Dublin 2. I zipped down to them before their show, and with precisely 9.3 minutes available I had to put down my bag of tricks and whittle something nice looking for imminent press release. I managed to get a couple of...

All Ireland 7s VW Sponsor Launch
2015-05-19

So simple enough and quick PR and Press Photography gig yesterday. Volkswagen Ireland and St Jude's GAA announced they are the new All Ireland Junior 7s sponsor, which seems like a good suit for them with all the families involved in it and sure you must be able to squeeze +7 into some of their MPVs. Anyways, Croke Park is always a pleasure, but with 6/7 people to squeeze into a shot and shooting from the press gallery, there's just not a whole lot...

ISPAI Annual report Launch
2015-05-19

The ISPAI do some really tough work, they essentially receive and monitor reporting of child abuse imagery online. It's such an enormous and utterly tragic problem, its hard to accept or even understand its existence. Their heroic and difficult work is wrapped up in its annual report, which outlines how they work with different ISPs, international police and monitoring groups, and an ever changing digital world. France Fitzgerald TD Minister for...

Dublin Mountains, Tiny Planet
2015-05-15

So here's another of the PhotoSphere Tiny Planet projections... The whole methodology of shooting a 360 is rotating precisely around the exact point on all three axis of where the light bends through the lens of the camera. Hence lot of beautifully tooled mechanized aluminum mounts and struts for tripods and DSLRs. My mobile doesn't have one of these, and this forest floor hasn't seen a spirit level for some time. Adding to the difficulty of shooting...

Merrion Square, Dublin 2 Tiny Planet
2015-05-15

Dublin, as any local will know to both their joy and their detriment, is tiny. It's a pleasure to bump into all friends and 'yer man... ' constantly, and a claustrophobic hell for others. Either way its essentially a glorified town, and oddly enough, Ireland is lovingly referred to as Village Ireland. This is a Tiny Planet image, its made by inverting your viewpoint, and going wide from a traditional 360. They kinda look more like little islands,...

Poached Egg on Toast
2015-05-07

The simplest things are often the most difficult, and the most delicious. Sweet carmelised onions, on toasted sourdough and... for the life of me I can't remember that reduction or even reverse engineer it. Anyways it looks staggeringly delightful, even considering its only egg on toast. Do the simple things right as they say. Mouth watering delights from the fine folk at La Mere Zou St Stephens Green,Dublin...

woah there – not so fast cowboy
