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 […]

Cremore Clinic is a out in Glasnevin, and they requested a Google tour a few weeks back. Its a recently renovated clinic and they’ve all these pods off the main artery which gives all these mini zen-like moments. Right at the back of the property they’ve a really stunning rose […]

This is one of my own personal favourite photos. Its back a few years from Barcelona where they have some great festivals and scant regard for health and safety. Its part of the Merce festival when they dress up as diablos (devils) and have a fireworks display. The odd things […]

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.

MusicTown

MusicTown
So it’s been a busy couple of weeks. Massively enjoyable and utterly Dublin-centric, which is only a great thing. So MusicTown kicked off, and its a Dublin City Corporation initiative, which brings in a few looser smaller strands and give them a big brother hug, and then peppers the city […]

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 […]

This is chocolate. Well, no it’s not. But it kinda is… Strangely enough, for something that is so familiar, so commonplace, so everyday or even twice a day, chocolate is a bit of a mystery. Any film clip you see of a master chocolatier making chocolate always starts with them […]

So I know Steven and John from various entrepreneur networking events around Dublin – there does seem to be a great swathe of events that we’re blessed with here – and the time had come where they needed to push their fledgling Archipelago out into the water. I was delighted […]

RIP David Carr. Sad news this morning about this passing of David Carr, famed New York Times columnist and bullshit destroyer. I embarrassingly enough wasn’t too familiar with his work, life and deserved notoriety before he dropped over to Dublin in November for and off-WebSummit talk courtesy of fine folk […]
