I’m chief videojournalist with The Irish Times, based in Dublin, having previously worked as a photographer and deputy picture editor with that organisation. I’ve also worked for the Longford Leader, London Post Group, The Irish Press and Irish Independent. In 2007 I worked for the Sydney Morning Herald, Australia on an exchange programme.
I’ve won a number of awards including AIB /PPAI Photographer Of The Year Award five times. I’ve represented Ireland in The Fuji European Press Photographer Awards and I’m the only Irish photographer to have won the UK Picture Editors, Photographer of the Year Award. In terms of gear, I’m a Nikon D4 user, and a big fan of the sharpness of Nikkor prime lenses. I love my Fuji X100T and use it for all my personal / reportage work .
