Portrait Photography

TenderScouts
2017-09-28

Tenderscout gots a new home. They flew the coop from DogPatch Labs, got ideas about themselves and located themselves in Georgian haunt of Harcourt St. Closer to Coppers in fairness. There's a fervent buzz off of Tenderscout, that's nothing to do with head honcho Tony's footballing prowess, or his boots. They seem to be delivering consistent results for businesses in getting more work in the door and striding forwards through Tenders – which...

Windy Liffey Balcony
2017-05-09

Rooms with views are hard currency in this game. One of the favourite perks of the job is getting to see Dublin from various vantage points. Thankfully photo ops are usually put up on a commanding rooftop and not in the dungeon depths, replete with coders, boxes and forgotten pop-ups. So I've been ticking along nicely with a delightful media company and photographed one of the business teams on this balcony nearly a year ago. I had a good blast of...

Barber Sean of Cut & Sew
2015-04-16

Sean is a regular of my Instagram feed, always popping up with tightly graded shorn young folk of Dublin looking impossibly sharp. I believe he's just moved into new shop in Temple Bar, Dublin and trundled across a version of this while backing (so many hard drives... ), and it's a shot I always liked – so worth a quick posting. If I recall I was using three mobile flashes and some of the coloured filters I'd been carting around for the...

Light Painting Portrait Photography
2015-03-11

While convincing the Archipelago gents to stand out in the Baltic night air out in Dollymount to catch the Pigeon Chimneys at night for this portrait, I took the oppurtunity to try some light painting. Its simply painting with light into a long exposed frame – think of writing your name with sparklers as a kid at Hallowe'en. So it was a popular thing online at the time, and it can be quite a cool effect. I suggested just doing a non-descript ball,...

Steven and John from Archipelago
2015-03-04

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 to be asked to be involved and given a pretty free reign to come up with some strong portrait photography that would help them get some press and help give them a little...

TenderScout Corporate Portraits
2015-02-20

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 that was in shooting the interiors for the RCPI themselves. If i had to be familiar with a place this would be high on it. Pretty fine spot for seminars etc as...

woah there – not so fast cowboy
