Photography has always been part of my life. My first camera as a kid was a Kodak Tele-ektra and then a Pentax. I used to love messing around in the Darkroom developing my images, After many years of directing and filming documentaries and music videos I went travelling to Asia and spent 7 months photographing Vietnam, Thailand and Myanmar. After that travel experience, I decided to concentrate fully on photography.
I love the flexibility that photography allows me. One day I could be shooting food and the day after shooting a beautiful car.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I have been very lucky to travel the world photographing for Formula 1, BMW and lately Aston Martin for the 'Beautiful to Drive' campaign in the UK. I really enjoyed these shoots as I was allowed complete creative flexibility and from that came great photos. When I travel I also love doing food photography and these usually end up being sent into competitions like the Pink Lady Food Photographer of the Year where three of my images made it to the finals and made me very proud.
Awards, honors, and recognitions received
In 2015 I was selected from over 100,000 photographers worldwide for the final ten photographers in the Sony World Photography Awards. In 2016 I had my first major photographic exhibition in Dublin called 'Vietnam 40' and I was invited to exhibit ‘Vietnam 40’ in Vietnam by Culture Ireland and the Irish Embassy. In 2019 three of my food images were chosen for the finals of the Pink Lady Food Photographer of The Year Awards. I have also been nominated for EU Business Innovation Award for 2020.
