My Irish Summer

For me, returning home to Ireland each summer is like pressing a re-set button. Even though low clouds float through the sky almost constantly and often bring ‘scattered showers’ (a frequently used term in Irish weather forecasting!), I find that being there is somehow therapeutic. Sunshine is received by all as a welcome gift because

Galway Races Part 2

When I am traveling and wandering with my camera in hand, I am constantly observing my surroundings. Something I have noticed is a reoccurring theme that I often find myself looking downward. I find it interesting to observe how style and fashion varies from place to place. These are some of the different styles I

Every Dog Has It’s Day…

I shot this portrait of ‘Allie’ while taking a walk on Silver Strand beach, in Barna, Co. Galway, Ireland. I have always had a great love of dogs and often stop to pet dogs I meet along my way. They are so pure and unassuming… Allie’s owner was throwing a ball in the surf and the

Street Feet

Sometimes when we’re a new place we like to focus on a single detail. By blocking out all the rest of the sensory stimuli, we can absorb the new information at a more leisurely pace. While on assignment to Amsterdam, we took some moments to stand still, noticing the feet of passers by. These legs

It’s a Mobile World

I’m in NYC this week meeting with the who’s-who of NYC advertising. It’s been an awesome experience meeting great Art Producers, Art & Creative Directors, as well as Reps and we’ve had an overwhelmingly positive response to my work. -Thank you NYC! Dashing between meetings I couldn’t help but notice how ubiquitous cell phones have

Exploring Amsterdam

Work brought us to the capital of the Netherlands, and we happily explored the highly visual city during our free time. Familiarity breeds indifference and so one of the awesome things about traveling to somewhere new is seeing everything with fresh eyes. Away from the common day-to-day sights, our senses feel sharper. And armed with camera in hand,

Castlegrove – A Hidden Wonder

Ireland is known for its lush, green landscapes but some of its most priceless gems are reserved for only the most determined. On a recent trip home, a friend led us to a remote spot in the forests of Tuam where he then unveiled an epic spectacle – a magical castle estate, once a stately

Italy – Faces of Verona

When we were in Italy recently for a friend’s wedding, we were struck by the beauty of the people of Verona. Made famous as the setting of Shakespeare’s “Romeo and Juliet,” the northern Italian town is one of Italy’s top destinations. With camera in hand, we took delight in asking people to pose for us,

Fechtor Advertising/Leo Alfred

It is always a pleasure to see our photos turned into ad campaigns (which is what much of our work is used for) – but this particular project put some extra sweet into the treat! We recently shot a series of environmental portraits of employees at Leo Alfred Jewelers for Fechtor Advertising. The creative vision
