Chris Hill Interview

How did you get into photography?

I got into photography at school but it wasn't until I was thirty that I took to it professionally.

What equipment do you use?

I use Hasselblad and Nikon cameras.

What are the ingredients for success within landscape photography?

Success is taking a shot that makes someone say "I've been there but have never seen it so beautiful.

Where in Ireland is your favourite place to shoot?

My favourite place in Ireland is the Causeway coast in Antrim but I have very soft spots for Kerry and Donegal.

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

The variety of light and land in Ireland makes for spectacular photographs - the depth of saturation in the landscape and the endless formations on the coast.
