I have always been interested in photography. my passion for seascapes was ignited in June 2011 at Dunany , County Louth. I spent many evenings out there that summer observing the ever changing light and moods in the skies and ocean. I found solitude beside the ocean, and for the first time in my life I was able to relax and completely switch off from what was going on in my life. I immersed myself in watching the waves forming in the distance and breaking on the shoreline.
For my seascapes, I use a Canon EOS 6D and a Canon 16-35mm wide angle lens. I also use Lee neutral density filters and a sturdy tripod.
A passion for your craft. An understanding of light , and how to use it.
Skerries is my favourite spot to shoot. You can capture both the sunrise and the sunset at Skerries. In addition to the harbour where there is always plenty of activity going on, Skerries also has many beautiful beaches looking out over the islands..
I love our incredibly beautiful and rugged coastline ... nothing quite as wonderful as witnessing the dawning of a new day from one the the many beautiful beaches on Ireland's east coast.
