Shaved Parmesan Grated Truffle Tortellini
2015-08-06

My mind still bends a little each time I smell truffle. It just never smells like edible food and it kicks off an olfactory argument in my brain. I certainly don't dislike it, and do enjoy it massively in its milder applications, but its can be phenomenally strong, strong enough to stop me in my tracks – which is not easily done when there's a whole pile of delicious in the way. Tortellini parcels of delicious pasta tossed in olive oil, Parmesan...

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...

The Classic Front Loader
2015-03-30

Difficult not to crack a smirk on sight of a quality Volvo front loader. The mainstay of most industrial setups, these things are just work thirsty monsters in  a perpetual state of torque. This classic Volvo 120D might have a few years on it now, but it's a just a beast of a workhorse, quite probably responsible in part for 1000s of kilometers of road networks and national infrastructure. And they're yellow whats not to...

Oi-Oi-Oysters
2015-03-25

Delectable and delicious. Atlantic Rock oysters – food of the kings and deliverer of such satisfaction. If you don't, or even worse, can't do these shell-rockers, you have my full commiserations and pity. They're such a treat and a funtastic addition to any meal, it's bizarre to think that in bygone days they would have been spurned and thought of peasant food. Now they're bedfeloows with champagne and stout. In amongst this lot are some...

Nicholas Mosse Product Photography
2015-03-23

Nicholas Mosse is a wonderful range of pottery from Bennettsbridge in Kilkenny.  Nicholas himself set up the pottery in the old mill in the 1970s and has enjoyed great success over the years with range of spongeware pottery that harks back to simpler times. I've been lucky enough to be shooting their range for the last few years since they launched their online portal catering for the international market. The initial shoot was two full days on...

Miravex Skin Mapping Light
2015-03-16

You'd be forgiven for suspecting the industrial designer of this device had some wild disco-tinged agenda on the world. But in actual fact this Miravex device delivers > something, something, photo, something, light-mapping, something, skin, something, something. I nodded and agreed as white-coated lab doctor cheerily explained. No idea. Then he showed me the results of how this device can interpret and map skin, creating 3D maps of areas around the...

Why Go Bald? Dublin's Finest Neon
2015-03-13

Dublin, could quite be possibly, be leading the charge in neon signs for the folically challenged. Make no beans about it, that's some statement. Somebody, somewhere, without an ounce of irony – but possibly a moustache – decided the best way to market their message to the greater Dublin area of receding men was to erect and 3m high neon sign of an animated man surprised at his loss/ re-appearance of hair. Simply brilliant. He's our own Vegas...

Dublin Bay Prawns
2015-03-02

Living in Dublin and loving pubs, you pretty much have to decide what pubs suit what occasion – otherwise you get overwhelmed with the choice. There's pubs for chats, pubs for the match, pubs for food. When the RBS 6 Nations rolls into town then there's a myriad of fine options – Slatterys, 51 on Haddington but one of my own favourites would be the Old School House on Mount Street Bridge. Watching Ireland beat England yesterday, I'm grinning...

SLX Cushions Product Photography
2015-02-27

I shot a Google Business View tour along with some portraits of the team at Kevin Dempsey Distributors last summer, and delighted to hear from them again recently. They've a slew of new designs as part of their SLX cushions range and needed to get them ready for their marketing collateral, as they've a scheduled newsletter, and website promo alongside some of the old fashioned real-life printed material. The pure white background is usually favoured...

Event Photography and Timelapse - LaRousse Foods
2015-01-26

LaRousse are the guys behind most of the great plates of food in Dublin, and Ireland. They supply most of the top Dublin restaurants with fantastic quality food from Ireland and beyond. With so much of the shift in dining being about the providence and the quality of the produce, they took it upon themselves to ferry up some really interesting artisan producers with their wares to introduce them to some of Dublin's chefs. Throw in some great tasting...

Satis Properties Google 360 Tour
2015-01-22

Satis Properties are based up on the Phoenix Park Racecourse, in Castleknock, Dublin 15. They're delighted with their new offices, and run a tight ship out of their with property sales and lettings. So they needed some headshots and some shots of their office for the new website and loved the idea of a full Google 360 tour – since they've a unique office setup, it really deserves getting shown off to the...

Ice Ice Baby
2015-01-14

So the good folk at The Digital Hub managed to get themselves nominated and braved up to the daunting challenge of 2014's bucket of ice cold water. I was on hand doing some interiors and portrait photography around the campus in Dublin 8 on the day so managed to catch the glee of the ice water chuckers, and the horror of the recipients. Really phenomenally successful charity viral campaign so congrats to all...

woah there – not so fast cowboy
