Brian Curran

Landscape Photographer | My Ireland Tour

Brian's interest in photography began in 1996 after he bought a Minolta 7000 film SLR camera from a friend. From there the fascination grew and in 2006 his career started in earnest when he bought a Sony A100 DSLR camera and began a City & Guilds photography course which he passed with Distinction. Through his studies and endless researching of photography magazines his love of landscape photograpahy grew. Being a Northern Ireland native Brian was in the ideal location to make the most of his skills. Using the ever changing beauty of Northern Ireland as his backdrop Brain's career has gone from strength to strength. He also runs a small workshop based around the North Antrim Coast and the Mourne Mountains.

Brian Curran Interview

How did you get into photography?

I kinda fell into it by accident, I bought a film SLR off a friend and it just developed from there.

What equipment do you use?

I currently use a Canon 6D with various lenses and filters.

What are the ingredients for success within landscape photography?

The main ingredient for landscape photography is getting to beautiful locations when there's good light, normally at sunrise and sunset.

Where in Northern Ireland is your favourite place to shoot?

My two favourite places for landscape photography are the Mourne Mountains or the Antrim coast which between the two locations have endless locations.

What do you think makes Northern Ireland such a popular place to shoot landscape photography?

Probably due to it's beautiful and rugged coast line which lends itself to both sunrise and sunset photography.
