Can you remember how photography became such an interest to you?
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 day to day?
I use Hasselblad and Nikon cameras.
What do you think makes a great landscape photograph stand out from the rest?
Success is taking a shot that makes someone say "I've been there but have never seen it so beautiful".
Do you have a favourite part of Ireland when it comes to landscape photography?
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 haven for 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.
