Inspiration For My Photography

I am a Landscape Photographer from Warrenpoint, County Down in Northern Ireland. I specialize in Landscape and Seascape photography from all over Ireland, enjoying the beautiful scenery that this part of the world has to offer. My love of photography started a long time ago as a child taking family snap shots on an old Kodak Brownie Camera. Eventually some years later I was able to purchase an Olympus OM2n 35mm camera along with a selection of lenses on which I started my journey as a Landscape Photographer. The Olympus camera and lenses are long gone and have now been replaced with a Canon EOS 5D Mark IV Digital Camera with a selection of Canon Lenses. Photography has now become a passion of mine and I'm always looking inspiration for my photography in the beauty of the natural world all around us. I grew up with a fond appreciation of nature and the outdoors and I’d like to think this is reflected in my photography.
Hopefully you’ll enjoy viewing my photographs and are able to experience the same sense of joy and pleasure that I had in creating them.

Thanks for looking.....

"There is a pleasure in the pathless woods,
There is a rapture on the lonely shore,
There is society, where none intrudes,
By the deep Sea, and music in its roar,
I love not Man the less, but Nature more,"
Lord Byron
