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 […]

BlowBack

BlowBack
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 […]

Well, forgive the substantial leap of faith, but they’re still going up the stairs. Maybe not to heaven, and not to any Led Zepp as far as I remember. Twas great little morning shindig put on by the good people of Siegel + Gale to have a chat and meet […]

New Years’ resolution and all of that. 2016 was a spectacular year in terms of projects, opportunities and clients. Worked out a lot of new and exciting projects that stretched my experience across fields I didn’t think I’d ever be involved in from project managing 16 photographers on a nationwide […]

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 […]

So Tony and his fledgling yet vastly impressive company TenderScout, had a sizeable launch this week. After comparing the flake of various croissants around Dublin he gave the nod to my old haunt at No.6 Kildare Street. I was in there last week shooting another event for press/PR, and before […]

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 […]
