I love what I do and photography has always played a big part in my life. As a young teenager I started out with rock concert photography and I took my camera along to shoot bands that came to visit Dublin. Some of the earliest gigs I attended were spent photographing groups like New Order and U2. After each concert I could hardly wait to develop the shots in my home darkroom. The whole process of taking the photos, developing and then printing proved to be a fantastic introduction to the world of photography.
During the nineties I studied interior design and graduated from Griffith College Dublin in 1996. After college I spent time working as an exhibition stand and display designer and also as a design and interiors consultant. I even got to design my own collection of contemporary furniture in 1998. During this creative period I always had my camera on hand to photograph finished projects. My first real photography job came in that year (1998) when I shot portraits of classical composer John Kinsella for his first cd.
