Designer Portraits for Samsung and Image Magazine

We love working with creatives, capturing the character that drives their designs. This shoot for Samsung Ireland and Image Magazine was a great project to work on, drawing together five very different but equally brilliant designers working in Ireland: Helen Steele, Anthony Peto, Emma Manley, Peter O'Brien, Natalie B Coleman and Silvana Landa.

Spark Foundry Portraits

We love working with bright, bold creatives. The crew from Spark Foundry were no exception. We captured a cover shot of the wonderful Sandra Alvarez, the only female managing director of an Irish media agency, for IMJ Magazine.  We also captured head shots and group shots for the rest of this great team.

World Backup Day with Drobo

Backing up my imagery has always been important for me. However, it was when I started working on my 20 year retrospective PHO20GRAPHY that it really hit home. I was working with thousands of images. We spent months scanning my older photographic prints, and about a year shooting new digital imagery; all this had to be really securely backed up and well organised. Our Drobos were an invaluable part of the whole book production process. I have a lot of images that mean something special to me. However, this is the image that I would consider to be the turning point in my career. It was the first time that I felt my vision had been fully realised and that anything was achievable. That was 28 years ago. Image of Vicky Brannigan at Morgan the Agency, make-up by Fiona Connon, hair James Mooney and styling by Nadia Pfeiffer.
