Twenty years in the photography world based in N Ireland on the beautiful north coast

Type business: Full Time Professional PhotographerMy photographic style: A full general skill in all styles of photography

My greatest strengths: weddings, studio , landscapes, motorsports ,

I have been in photography: thirty years

How I got started in photography: I was asked to supply photos for a local newspaper , it was of the famous northwest 200 road race, this was a bonus as the motorcycle magazine MCN asked for some photos and this was my entry to the world of photography .

My photographic skills: having been in photography for over thirty years i have achieved many skills in photography and my main abilities are to take best photographic image, to give the customer the highest quality.

I have great skill in motorsports to panning action, but i also have skills in studio lighting and great in the hollywood lighting style .

all skills from the second i push the shutter button , until the finishing the images in lightroom and then print them for the customer

My personality: i have a happy and friendly personality , treat all with respect , smile and the world smiles to . but have a very professional outlook in life , i am no pushover .

Geographic areas I cover: all of the UK and europe.

Venues I frequently attend: I have a few that are likes, BSB , Northwest 200 road race, ulster grand prix, british touring cars , classic F1 ,

but do wedding fairs as well , and live music events

I found inspiration from: there are two different types people in my life of people that inspired me . first are the past photographers in the film industry, photographers that could capture an image without the digital tech of today , they had to work hard on their skills to get the photos.

next is the motor racing driver and motorbike racer, they have skill to win / lose deal with life as it comes to them from the bad to the great to deal with pressure , but yet have time for fans.

Success in photography: I won a gold award in the SWPPP for a photograph of a motorcycle racing image.

I have twelve city and guilds photography qualifications ,with three very high marks for darkroom. photojournalism, studio lighting. with the rest top marks .

Photographic training: training was more in camera clubs learning from top photographers.

I did a lighting studio course on hollywood lighting and movie lighting.

My interests outside photography: I enjoy painting , cooking, music, spending time with the family, and casey the springer , also enjoy movies , friends . quite walks on some of the most beautiful beaches in N Ireland, great way to unwind

Major events: i was very lucky to play outdoor flat green bowls , i won two irish titles , one was with my father in the same rink for the team .

I have spend time major motorsport world champions, joey dunlop, valentino rossi, guy martin,

sharing my life with claire my partner , she is my rock.

Testimonials: one customer comes to mind , i was at castle donington raceway . and a family was a photo i took for the great joey dunlop , they bought it and it was like all their christmas came at once, they were so happy

Why I like the SWPP: they are great , they are here to help train and set standards to a higher level .

Tagline: I am a taker of life, in the moment i make the history of life, never to captured again , in a blink of an eye history for all to see.

Future plans: to run my business and take some wonderful beautiful photos , for the world to enjoy and be SIMPLY THE BEST

And finnally: we aim to give the best , your pleasure is our pleasure .
