Brian Curran: Irish Photographer

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 photography 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.

We had a chat with Brian about how he got started in the world of landscape photography.

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