Nights are getting darker, and the pub gets infinitely more attractive. Enjoyed great event in a new location for me last Monday evening. A wee get-together for some of the folk helping the Alone Charity raise a few quid, for the some of the older members of the community, all […]

I’ve never been a smoker but I’ve always had a soft spot for them. Film noirs and rock’n’rollers have always made them more glamorous and sexy than reality, but still there usually more craic and mischievous. Think I’ve only ever seen one other cigarette being lit backwards – and I […]

The always on. There’s no escape to the magical land of ‘Inbox Zero’. Caught some folk as the light lined up at a conference recently. Really love line of his shaved head.

Had a really enjoyable editorial photography gig last week with Minister Murphy in attendance. In a plush Marker Hotel meeting room, with some heavy hitters in the room, Phil from Euroweek hosted the roundtable event. On the table was the shape-shifting Brexit ideal from an Irish perspective. No shortage of […]
