Amsterdam at Night

Despite its reputation for legalized marijuana and prostitution, Amsterdam was recently named the fifth safest city in the world by the Safe Cities Index. The vital function of trade throughout the city’s history has led to a multi-cultural population who have generally valued trade above religion or ideology, making it a particularly tolerant and laid-back

When in Spain

Spanish culture is so robust, so alluring and so hard to forget. While on assignment in Granada in Andalucia, we used our down time to capture remarkable architecture, beautiful faces and many of the unique details that make the region so special. And don’t worry about that safe stealer… She’s just a cutup at heart!

The quiet Irish Atlantic

My summer trips back home to Ireland are always refreshing. There is a certain re-grounding that happens to me while I’m there. It rejuvenates my creative spirit and just makes me feel more human and real again. On this trip, Ireland’s coastal scenery grasped my attention as it seemed to shift away from its usual

As a photographer I never stop looking for interesting subject matter. Recently on a trip home to Ireland, I got to visit a very special place called GAP House. It’s the home of the Galway Autism Partnership, which provides services and support to people and families affected by Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) in Galway city and

NYC Street Portraits

I’ve always had a love of street photography since my earliest days of shooting. The world is more interesting and exciting with a camera in hand. It’s exhilarating to approach a total stranger and usually within a minute or two, make a portrait using the world around us as the backdrop. Here are some photos from my downtime

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

Ireland Beauty

Ireland’s frequent rain ensures the land is lush with foliage of all kinds. I stopped to take a closer look at a Nasturtium vine I saw crawling along a fence in County Galway. -So beautiful…

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,
