2008 Connemarathon




The 2008 Connemarathon was a delight to photograph. Vivaldi weather coupled with a rugged landscape provided the mood enduring backdrop. My girlfriend and her two sisters ran along side her flatmate and approximately four thousand other competitors. Pictured is the winner of the Ultra Marathon Helena Crossan who finished with a time of 4:40:12 and shaved a full 12 mins of her last years time. Also notice the car attempting to negotiate the runners final entrance pit!!!

castle markree

finished uploading marc and amy’s wedding photographs and have them now uploaded to my website.
the wedding was in castle markree in sligo and although it rained all day (outside shots were virtually impossible to take) the wedding was thoroughly enjoyable to photograph.
this is an amazing castle to hold a wedding in and I would recommend it if you like a rustic setting within which to hold a no fuss wedding.

parties and traffic

just after meeting a client today called raya (a lovely phillipino lady) whose childs birthday party I will be photographing tomorrow at the chapati grill in smithfield.
this lady has a particular talent for organising parties and weddings, and part of this talent is helping to bridge the gap between the asian and irish cultures. .

chapelizod is a veritable nightmare at the moment as the roadworks continue, further exasperated by the volume of traffic passing through on a daily basis.

mexican photographers

my girlfriend came back from mexico on tuesday and kindly bought me two phaidon “55” series photographic books. one on tina modotti and the other on graciela iturbide. it just reminded me that tina was in fact a lover of edward weston although their so called “sexual freedom” within the relationship was often tested at times.
