Irish Photographer - Niall Carroll

Landscape Photographer | My Ireland Tour

Niall Carroll started taking shots professionally in 2005 having spent a much time travelling around Australia, New Zealand and South East Asia. It was here, while living in Manly, Sydney where Niall came across Peter Lik's original style of panoramic photography and never looked back. Having returned to Ireland he quickly started producing quality landscape shots and covered the up and coming kitesurfing scene in Ireland. Soon he has photos published in kitesufing publications across Europe and thing stated to take off.

Niall Carroll Interview

  • How did you get into photography?
  • I was backpacking around Australia in 2001, seen lots of lovely panoramic images form some excellent photographers over there of the stunning Aussie landscapes and said that I wanna be able to do that in Ireland! I bought a camera and did lots of online reading and experimenting and took it from there. Panoramics are where it all started and what I love taking, so taught myself how to take those shots and started to produce some epic shots of Ireland. People like them and it took off!

  • What equipment do you use?
  •  

    I'm a pure Canon man!

  • What are the ingredients for success within landscape photography?
  •  

    Patience, and lots of it! Being fit and able to climb mountains, roam through rivers or swim in to serious surf helps too. Having an eye for what your looking for an seeing what other people don't see. I love producing shots of places people drive by every day and them standing back going "No way, it that really that spot". I love seeing angles or viewpoints nobody else does and capturing that.

  • Where in Ireland is your favourite place to shoot?
  •  

    The Mourne Mountains in Co Down is an absolutely stunning spot, love it there

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

    I think that it has all the ingredients to make brilliant pics, greens, yellows and oranges. Stunning Blues at the cost and the Autumn can be truly majestic if you get right light. There is so much packed into this little Ireland that it makes it a brilliant destination to shoot stunning landscapes, you just need to get out there and do it!
